    The DRM Modding Team have released a lengthy video showcasing the outstanding looking Work in Progress DRM Revival Mod for Assetto Corsa.


    The Deutsche Rennsport Meisterschaft (or DRM as it is more commonly known) was a German auto racing championship for high performance Group 2 touring cars that featured a number of manufacturer backed and privateer run touring car and GT teams throughout the 1970's and early 80's. Consisting of an array of stars and cars from Group 2 touring car, Group 4 GT and later the inclusion of the Group 5 specification monsters which styling and sheer aggressive energy still resonate with many racing fans throughout the world today.

    The series ran for 15 very successful years under a variety of different regulations and rule sets until eventually finding itself running out of steam and money at the end of the 1985 racing season, closing it's doors and quickly slipping into the history books as one of the most outrageous and spectacular racing series ever held.

    With the DRM championship having benefitted from such a wonderful and exotic mix of some of the very best race car engineering feats of the 70's and 80's, it feels like a scandal that no professional video game developers have stepped up to bring a full re-enactment of the once great championship to it's own game (ok Sector3 have the Group 5 cars in RaceRoom, but it's still got a whole load of cars missing to make a full DRM season).

    Step up the DRM Modding Team.

    The people behind this mod have been furiously working away for several months now to bring together a substantial collection of cars that raced within the DRM championship between 1972 and 1985, creating a stunning collection of Division 1 and Division 2 Group 5 racing cars for the Assetto Corsa simulation. Already in game and receiving the fine touches required to bring together a full version one release, the DRM Revival Mod is looking like it could well become one of the best mod releases ever seen for Assetto Corsa.

    In order to celebrate the development progress of the project the DRM Modding Team have released this special 17 minute trailer video showcasing all the cars out on track, and man does it look good!


    The following cars are expected to form the full version one release:

    • BMW 2002 Turbo
    • BMW 320S
    • BMW M1 Turbo
    • Facetti/Finotto 308 Carma.
    • Lancia Beta Turbo
    • Porsche 935 K3
    • Porsche 935 k1
    • Toyota Celica LB Turbo
    • Zakspeed Escort
    • Zakspeed Capri Turbo
    These spectacular Group 5 racing vehicles will surely provide a challenging and exhilarating experience behind the wheel as you look to plant the throttle and convert the considerable horsepower into forward propulsion from the massive rear tyres.

    With the series having been home to many major international drivers throughout it's history, the DRM Modding Team will be recreating a number of period liveries for each car, allowing sim racers to recreate some of the most epic racing battles of the time. With drivers the calibre of Hans-Joachim Stuck, Klaus Ludwig, Rolf Stommelen and Bob Wollek alongside some of the most amazing cars ever raced, I simply cannot wait to try this mod out myself, it should be epic...

    Assetto Corsa is a racing simulation designed by Kunos Simulazioni and is available for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC. The DRM Revival Mod is due for a release mid way through 2017.

    Exactly the
    Exactly the first thing i thought. I'm sure they have good reasons to exclude them, but i honestly hope they find a way to include them.

    Fantastic cars!
    You just can hope that they’ll be used online because the AI is not that good.

    Amazing work, one thing that I notice with all the artwork I do is how amazing the colour schemes were then. The cars look amazing and loving the details :thumbsup:

    I would imagine this will be a paid mod? I can't see it being a freebee, not with that amount of work. However if the price is reasonable I'll certainly give it a shot :)

    Been waiting for this for a long time and started to get worried because of the "radio silence" on this one. Really hope\pray it will be out soon because many people who have been waiting for this mod, started to lose some hope in it being released. That being said,the screenshots look well worth the wait and if the physics match the look... Lets just say my wife may file for divorce based on neglect ;)
    Well done so far guys :D:D:D
