    Welcome to the July edition of our regular sim racing modding round-up articles, checking out the best of the best from the world of Assetto Corsa modding.

    In the latest of our monthly look into the magical world of mod creation for Assetto Corsa, we have a trawl through some of the incredible car and track releases produced since May by our awesome modding community. From the big and the bold to something altogether different, these past couple of months have produced some impressive pieces of community created mods here at RD.

    I would again like to take this opportunity to remind you that in no way do RaceDepartment endorse these mods or take any responsibility whatsoever for any issues caused by downloading these files. The idea behind the articles is rather simple, to help throw light on some of the wonderful community content created for our favourite racing simulators. If you feel we have missed out some "must have" content, or want to draw my attention to a project you are working on, please feel free to drop me a PM or leave a message in the comments section below….

    Converted from the original rFactor 2 mod (with permissions), the Lola T70 MkII from @aphidgod is a beautiful piece of content in both look and feel. Capturing the essence of GT sportscar racing in the 1960's remarkably well. A perfect choice for fans of historic racing, the Lola has been completed to an incredible level of attention to detail and is well worth a download. Must have content.

    Looks good and sounds great, this Formula One car from the MSF Italian Modding Team is one of the best sounding sim mods of recent times. Feeling incredibly engaging to drive (for an F1 car) and pushing our some ear busting audio, the FW24 of 2002 Formula One fame is already a very, very impressive piece of kit. Improved massively over earlier builds, the car is now at a very high standard.

    BMW e30 Touring 0.51

    Probably the only version of this car in any simulation, the e30 Touring has been made to a very high standard. Built from scratch, excellent 3D model and superb physics, the car is an outstanding piece of content for anyone wanting something a bit more sedate and road going in their simulation driving. Outstanding car.

    Stop reading this and go download it. NOW! It's a 1991 Jordan F1 car FFS. Brilliant mod.

    Another rather outstandingly good fun classic open wheel car from @jurik1984, the Estonia 20 is the absolute definition of no frills racing. No sight of such luxury as traction control, DRS or KERS, this is racing as it should be - pure. Low speeds, great handling and sideways action. Brilliant car, just like all his others. Must have.

    Appreciate we will get a laserscanned Kunos version in future, but this track is the perfect choice while we wait, and has been sorted to a high level and keeps getting better. Reworked from the rFactor 2 version, the track is quickly building up to a very, very solid level of quality.

    Beautiful, well made, graphically high quality and a great circuit. Very impressive mod and an absolute must have for people looking for a great driving experience. Converted from GTL by @WilliamTRiker as a first project, the quality is hard to miss throughout the mod. Super first effort and well deserving of anyone's download capacity. Brilliant. (for added fun, put some fog down and go for a spin in a classic F1 car.. superb!)

    Because, well it's awesome isn't it? Massive rework on all aspects of the track, this build version 2.0 is incredible. Brilliant stuff and worthy of official Kunos content. Must have download.

    Plenty rough round the edges (hence v0.5) but crammed pack full of potential. Awesome track layout seemingly well put together in it's basic form, this will be very much one to keep an eye on in the coming months, even though it is perfectly driveable at the moment. Very promising track.

    Finally a modern version of this historic track. @alex meyer has done a fantastic job making a very visually appealing track and appears to have done a great job on accurately recreating the Spanish circuit. With all the necessary bells and whistles included, this is a very, very well made mod and is perfect for lots of the content in AC. Comes in 2 layouts with 35 AI spots, this is a very good track mod indeed. Looking forward to seeing more from the author in future.

    I would (again) like to ask, why RD is still not willing to use at least some of the very well made add on-tracks in its events. It worked with Le Mans, we had full grids, why shouldn´t it work with other tracks? Don´t get me wrong, I love this community and the races here, but using always the same tracks gets a little boring.

    Agree but mainly because the trees don't look like shite but only in the pic because while driving your trees are not very good . Are you planning a update to make your Sim trees and aliasing actually work and look real ?
    They are a lot better than i could do (obviously) but really , for the top Sim on the market ATM i think in 2017 we should have a option in the graphic to adjust visual slider further to the right for more realism .
    Especially with a SMSoon to be released Sim looking ever so impressive !

    Oh yes, Bridgehampton. I downloaded couple of tracks recently and that one is very good. It stays and I deleted most of them.

    Another scratch made circuit that should be made official assetto corsa content.
    Pay the modders Kunos or shut up, some of them are doing a stellar job in keeping assetto corsa relevant, due to lack of race tracks, in assetto corsa.

    @ Michael stead, are you angry because I, quoted your comment or that I, agreed with your comment, either way it seems weird that you would be angry for those reasons.......weird.
