Kunos Simulazioni co-founder Marco Massarutto gives fans a little insight into the work required to create a scratch built circuit for Assetto Corsa. In a post on his personal Facebook page earlier today, Marco Massarutto of Kunos Simulazioni shared several images from the development of the new Highlands race track due to be added as free content in Assetto Corsa "very very soon". As we already know the Highlands race track will be a fictional creation from the team at Kunos and is to be based on a rural Scottish location consisting of four distinct track layouts. Designed to be suitable for a variety of different vehicles, from low power road cars to high downforce prototype racers, the Highlands track looks like an interesting addition to the game and should prove to be an enjoyable experience. With long open stretches of road intermixed with tight and twisting sectors through a fictional Scottish village, Highlands is an interesting change of pace from the usual content produced by Kunos. You can view the comparison pictures and accompanying text from Massarutto below: "So, today I would like to let you see what there's under the tip of the iceberg, giving you a very rough idea about the amount of work behind a track (regardless it's fictional or exists in the real world). That's much more that "time cost for modeling", but involves creativity, testing, improvements, remakes, and last but not least, a lot of passion. I hope you will enjoy it as much as we enjoyed in making it. BTW, this track has been modeled by just one person. [very very] "Soon™" No exact release date has been given by Kunos on when to expect release of the Highlands circuit, however with the comments from Massarutto's Facebook post it looks like fans will not be waiting long until it's time to get their hands on the new track.
