    Introducing something special in the Assetto Corsa Racing Club - Our very special Ferrari Celebration events!

    As many of our regular racers may already be aware, we run two different kinds of club here at RaceDepartment. We hold regular events for those of you in the European time zone, and a further racing club for our friends over in the United States and surrounding areas. Often the content within both clubs will remain very similar, and always both sides of the pond produce outstanding sportsmanship, enjoyable racing and high spirits with great banter. That is our target, and one we strive to achieve each and every time.

    From tonight Monday nights in our EU club will be taken over by the joy of the Scuderia, with each Monday up to and including the 16th October set to feature some of the best content from the latest Ferrari Celebration DLC.

    Over in the US club we will be dedicating Thursday night to all things Italian, with a first event running this 28th September and going all the way through to the October 19th.

    Subject to the success of our event,s we may look to extend the Ferrari Celebration races for a further few weeks..

    So without further ado, let us take a look at the upcoming schedule for the Ferrari Celebration month in the Assetto Corsa Racing Club!

    EU Racing Club.

    Monday 25th September - Ferrari 250 GTO at the 1967 Silverstone Grand Prix Circuit.

    Monday 2nd October - Ferrari 330 P4 at 1966 Monza Full Course (includes Gt40 and Porsche 908).

    Where's the 288 GTO? I know it has no friends, but damn that car deserves at least one event. :D Also, shove those American tracks to EU club as well, please! I love Brands Hatch, but I think I'm not the only one wondering if we're all stuck in a real life simulation and purposefully subjected to Brands and Nordschleife, especially when we have Longford, historic Spa and others.

    Great idea, but it feels a bit less special when we recycle same stuff with a couple of new Ferraris thrown in there. ;)

    My assetto corsa game configuration must be ready until 19 october and Ferrari 312/67 at 1967 Silverstone (with Lotus Type 49). This kind of race can only be something special for a Grand Prix legend lover like me :roflmao:

    That 250GTO is a monster of car that needs a lot of taming, but Oh so much fun.

    Some have already tamed her for sure, they were blasting around Silverstone67 (at the front).. in a recent racedepartment race event.

    Very nice events, but on Thursday is impossible to me (USA Club). Europe timezone is not compatible with Brazilian time.

    Good race for all!

    It was planned to run then for technical reasons I have no idea about a late switch was made. Will be keen to have another stab at it again though for sure :) Epic track, simply epic.

    For those that have no idea what we are talking about: :)

    Yeah it's no problem I just have little interest in the other tracks. I saw Bridge in the shot and got excited but soon found it was not to be.
