Virginia International Raceway 1.1

Scratch buit for AC by Darren Blythe, RIgel, Lilski and Arthur666

    After almost 2 years work we are very proud to release this great track for Assetto Corsa.

    Virginia International Raceway (commonly known as "VIR") is a road course located in Alton, Virginia. VIR hosts amateur and professional automobile and motorcycle events, driving schools, club days, and private test rentals. It is most famous for hosting the IMSA Weathertech Sportscar Championship which takes place every August.

    The track itself has been painstakingly modeled from scratch using several sources of technical data, countless photographs, hours of video footage and real world feedback from drivers and racers.

    It contains all seven layouts: Full, Grand East, Grand West, North, South, Patriot & Patriot Reverse. All are fully functioning with AI. Each layout has it's own look and feel in accordance with real life. The 'Full' layout is 2016 race spec as you will see it in the Sportscar Championship/Oak Tree GP

    A huge amount of effort went into this project. We hope you enjoy it.

    Please take the time to check out the release notes included in the download.

    This is insanely detailed. I just got back from VIR Weathertech GT race and could not believe how many bits and pieces you've included. You can literally drive around the whole complex, by the hotels, kart track etc. WOW! Fantastic!

    Better than default quality. Little touches show the developers cared. Once you've driven the beautiful circuit, find your way to the cottages and then the entry gate. This is VIR in its entirety. Bravo.

    This track is incredible. The detail put into it really shows a huge amount of care and respect for the original location. I love the easter eggs, as well. Driving round Oak-Tree feels just like being there.
