    All donors and contributors will receive an email with instructions to download v1.0 HD and any following update.

    In case you donated and are not receiviving our email, please PM me with the e-mail you used on the Paypal donation form.

    INSTALLATION:
    Delete any previous Luccaring folder in your "../steam/steamapps/common/assettocorsa/content/tracks/", extract the package using 7zip (http://www.7-zip.org/) into "../steam/steamapps/common/assettocorsa/content/tracks/"
    and you should end up with:
    "../steam/steamapps/common/assettocorsa/content/tracks/luccaring/"
    containing all the track files.

    Luccaring v1.0 SD is the public release, packaged with reduced textures resolution for better performance on lower end PCs and to fit RaceDepartment maximum upload size limits;
    Luccaring v1.0 HD is packaged with full resolution textures (this means you need a decent cpu and a powerful GPU with at least 4Gb of RAM) and is available for download to contributors on the official website www.directo.it/luccaring

    Absolutely stunning track !
    I Live in Italy and I have driven the real "track"; I must say driving the virtual one feel like being really "there".
    I am going to contribute with donation and I kindly ask you all to do the same. Proud to be Italian if there is such creativity and skill. W Assetto Corsa !! W Luccaring !!

    My fav track, I love it and drive it on a daily basis. I do not know why it is not supported by important services like SRS and RSR because it deserves to be at the top 10 of every choices

    Outstanding! I'm not a fan of most street circuits, but this one is great. I love the layout and the scenery. Doesn't feel claustrophobic., and the detail/quality is A+.

    I loved this track from the first launch, and its of very good quality from what i can tell.
    I just want to point out one thing: there are these speed bumps in the middle of the track, and i dont really see why something like that should be on a racetrack. I would like to have this version without that for the sake of racing, as its quite a frustrating part in a racecar.

      ..that bump has been left there as IRL after a sort of poll we had on the old "tracks thread" (now closed), on the official AC forums. While quite dangerous and certainly unusual on a race track, most people (including myself) thought it was a nice feature and had to stay. Actually, you can go over it flat out and survive with most of the cars (certainly not f1 or f3... you'll have to lift off at least).
      There's still hope though! We have a couple more layouts in mind, one of them being a sort of indy semi-oval layout without chicanes: that bump might go away as well...you'll just have to wait a while (don't ask for a release date though!).
      Thanks for the positive review and feedback :)

    This is a great quality track. Usually street circuits are a bit too short *ahem*Monaco*ahem* but this one is nice and long and the scenery on the outside of the track is really nice. There's enough high speed mini-chicanes and enough slower corners for each lap to feel varied.

    I like the detail especially the speed-bumps on some of the straights however I took Michael Schumacher's 2004 F1 car round and ended up in a tree a couple of times. Eventually I learned to take the speed-humps slower --Safety First :)

    If anyone is interested you can watch the lap here on YouTube:

    This track is a sure thing, it's beautiful! My only complaint is the pit entrance is in an akward place and I've had AI spin out ont he kerbs because of it.

    Little heavy on the kn5 - file size compared to vanilla content, but quality needs space! ;-)

    Impressive! I have to admit I didn't drive the previous version much, but this one really oozes quality all over. It's actually a pretty great layout for racing with GT classes, I find that it suits them really well, wonderful flow.

    The only flaw in my opinion is the AI. They have lots of trouble with the kerbs and the walls, and they're really not that enjoyable to race against, especially during the first lap and with the mixed field.

      Thanks for your review! About the AI line, it's been recored a while ago and i don't think it can get much better. You could try recording your own, and see if AI behaves better. As a modder, being there no official documentation, i am left with not many option: i just try to record the best line i can (and the recorded one is not a bad line "per se"). If Kunos will release some documentation and more tools, we'll update it in some future release. Also, AI in AssettoCorsa is being updated with each release (and some major upgrades are in the works from what i read on FB). Cheers!

    Absolute perfection!

    This track should be official content! My only grip is the cut out people. Although I hate them at all tracks, spoils the immersion for me. Especially if the time is set to early morning, odd highlights on the people. I'd rather have a track with no crowds. Just a minor thing.

    Other wise exceptionally well done !

      ..i think you can just open the file "camerafacing.ini" under "../tracks/luccaring/luccaring/data/"and delete all the entries: that should disable them without any side effects (didn't try but you might want to). Cheers!

    Absolutely impressive, so much detail that you barely see while racing. Took the old Porsche Spyder around to indulge a little.
    And despite the huge filesize it runs great even on my PC.

    Ha, I was just a few minutes ago adding this track to the track map part of my new dash app and wondering when it would get to v1.0. It's one of my favourite tracks.

    Piece of Art ! Amazing scenery (I forced my Caterham off-road to take a close look), very detailed. That speebump scared me (was it there in the previous version ? I don't seem to remember it being there. All in all, I seldom use the track for racing, just cruising in open cars to admire everything ;-)

    Great track. It's quite long for a street circuit and can take a while to learn. The scenery is great.

    I think the best car to learn the track with is the Praga R1 which I took around in a video which You can watch here if You are interested: https://youtu.be/Rb5S16v_7DQ
