    Kunos Simulazioni promised a mystery Scottish based fantasy track as a free gift for their Assetto Corsa simulation, and true to that promise Licencing Manager Marco Massarutto has sneaked out some interesting looking preview images of the new work in progress location.

    The three preview screens shared by Massarutto show a typical looking Scottish scene wrapped around what looks to be a mixed bag of open road and tight country lanes road course. According to the end of year blog by Kunos, the new Scottish circuit will come in four different configurations, able to easily host a wide variety of classes from low powered tin tops to high downforce endurance vehicles.

    It hasn't been revealed when exactly this track will be released, however the screens produced by Massarutto do show the track looking pretty much complete. It wouldn't be a big stretch of the imagination to expect this little Scottish gem to be included in the next core game update due probably sometime in Q1 2017.

    Looks awesome. Before the release of Black Cat County I imagined it would be a lot narrower. I think this track will fill that void. Can't wait for Laguna Seca either, one of my favourites since Gran Turismo 2. I wish they produced more tracks though, as one their staff here in the forums stated it doesn't take so much longer than producing a car (it was in the thread about the C9 Sprint IIRC). More tracks and better AI, all my needs and expectations for "AC 1" :)

    Cool, I really liked the one in pCars with the old lotuses, no reason this shouldn't be just as if not even more fun.

    I personally really like this type of Track with driving / racing through small towns and open roads etc...really excited for this and also do not mind if it is a fantasy track, if it is done to a high quality I say bring on more tracks like this.:)

    I look forward to it because Lienz was a very creative idea in rFactor, this can be too. And providing layouts for cars pre-dating 1990? Much needed and welcome.

    And wrong sun cycle :p

    Your racing simulator, you can add, remove, and change things (cars, tracks, apps, launcher, and other customizations). To you, what should your racing simulator mean for a sim racing game?

    how was that trash talking? They were all about realism, now they're making fantasy tracks.

    Last I checked other sims like rF2 also have fantasy tracks as official content. Mills Metro Park comes to mind.

    I am really looking forward to that and all that usual blah blah aside, am I tripping balls right now because of the perspective or are the brake markers like really the size of electric poles in the second pic? Or is it just me being ignorant and those huge yellow poles actually a thing in scotland? Same thing with BCC and their turn markers the size of buses... why do their fantasy track have to be sissified because casual scrubs can't learn braking zones. Authentic public road environment be damned I guess.

    Insert cliché about Scottish weather here...

    I have to say the track doesn't look 'typically Scottish' to me so far, but anything with undulations and fast, flowing corners is bound to be a winner!
