Sim racing on PC is well known for its highly vibrant modding scene with talented individuals and groups working tirelessly to create exquisite pieces of content for some of our favourite titles... and (almost) always for free to the community! Here at RaceDepartment we are big fans of modding our most favourite sim(s) and have decided to drop together a semi regular feature detailing some of the great work released in the past month or well on its way to gracing our sim racing machines in the coming weeks. When I first started writing this piece I had the intention of putting everything together in one article but I've found myself staggered at the number of different mods available to download and released these past few weeks. So much so that it looks like I'm going to have to create a post for each sim Don't we live in great times folks... So here you have it, a little (none) exhaustive round up of interesting recent releases for Assetto Corsa! Now a little disclaimer: First and foremost I can't guarantee I'll pick up everything nor does this article act as a recommendation on quality. I'll try my best to pick the best and give a thorough roundup of what's out and about but please do feel free to drop me a PM if you see anything you think should be included in the next round up... So, lets have a look see what's new and what's hot: Rally Legends Mod - Ford Fiesta RS WRC v1.0 Title: Assetto Corsa Category: Cars / Rally Download Link - HERE Latest Release: 11/04/2016 Credits: See download link Featuring both tarmac and gravel specification variants this interesting mod created for Assetto Corsa brings to life one of the modern WRC masterpieces and is complimented with a selection of skins and further links provided to various stages for use in game. Velcoe GTS-8 Title: Assetto Corsa Category: Cars / Street Download Link - HERE Latest Release: 10/04/2016 Credits: See download link Stunningly recreated the Velcoe GTS-8 has been a 10 year labour of love using real values and produced in great detail for Assetto Corsa. The little known Velcoe GTS-8 is a 170mph 500HP V8 designed for fun and driving thrills. Already receiving rave reviews this could well be considered a "must have" download for Assetto Corsa. Ginetta G55 GT4 Title: Assetto Corsa Category: Cars / Race Download Link - HERE Latest Release: 18/03/2016 Credits: See download link The Ginetta marque was formed by British entrepreneur Lawrence Tomlinson and is based in the north on England in Leeds. Prominent in British motorsport the G55 is a staple support vehicle in the popular British Touring Car TOCA support package. In recent seasons the G55 GT4 was born and has entered numerous GT racing series around the world. This recreation for Assetto Corsa benefits from advice and information directly from Ginetta with sounds provided by Fonsecker. This version of the car accurately reproduces the 2015 specification G55 GT4. Riverside International Raceway 0.6 WIP Title: Assetto Corsa Category: Tracks / Permanent Download Link - HERE Latest Release: 10/04/2016 Credits: See download link Featuring Long, Short, and NASCAR layouts the scratch built Riverside International Raceway has been recreated based on the 1988 version of the track and utilises a combination of topo maps, aerial photos and video footage. Despite WIP status this track addition to Assetto Corsa is already at an impressive stage and promises to become a top quality addition to the title. Lake Louise 2.0 Title: Assetto Corsa Category: Tracks / Road Download Link - HERE Latest Release: 11/03/2016 Credits: See download link Simply epic. This could very easily be considered one of the finest non official tracks to ever grace Assetto Corsa... With a ridiculously long 23km of winding mountainous roads to enjoy and stunning visuals Lake Louise is an incredibly enjoyable drive in the various road and race cars found in Assetto Corsa. Featuring 8 different variations of the track Lake Louise offers something for everyone to enjoy. Fuji Short Course V2.0 Title: Assetto Corsa Category: Tracks / Permanent Download Link - HERE Latest Release: 10/04/2016 Credits: See download link Often frustrating occasionally satisfying and always producing great racing Japan's Fuji Speedway is one of the Land of the Rising Sun's major motorsport destinations and holds many high profile racing events. Updated to meet Assetto Corsa standards with permissions from the original rFactor track creators the short version of Fuji makes its way to Assetto Corsa as an ideal candidate for low powered wheel to wheel racing and should make a fine addition to the game. YZ West Drift Circuit Title: Assetto Corsa Category: Tracks / Drift Download Link - HERE Latest Release: 04/04/2016 Credits: See download link Another very high quality rFactor conversion YZ West is a drifting track based in Japan with a series of corners designed to get the most from the latest drifting machines.

If you are working on a mod for any of the main sim racing titles on PC please drop me a PM if you wish to discuss and have a feature written here on RD. I can't guarantee we will feature your mod but I would be very interested to hear (and share) what projects are being worked on at present. In the coming weeks and months I intend to run a series of interviews with race sim modders and would also love to hear from any of you who would be interested in participating in an interview with RD. Again drop me a PM with some details and we can discuss... Have a look through our Assetto Corsa Mods section right here on RaceDepartment for a wide variety of apps / skins / cars / tracks and miscellaneous files to enhance your enjoyment of Kunos Simulazioni's premium racing simulator. EDIT: I promised myself I wouldn't do this but when I checked this out I simply couldn't not include it.. Tor Poznan Title: Assetto Corsa Category: Tracks / Permanent Download Link - HERE Latest Release: 24/03/2016 Credits: See download link It's a mod... and its laserscanned!!!! Seriously, LASERSCANNED! I've not (yet) personally tried this track in game but the images look outstanding and by sheer fact that the modder behind this project has gone to the trouble to produce a laserscanned version of the circuit is simply mind blowing. This alone is evidence to prove that our little sim racing community is quite simply outstanding... Have you enjoyed our AC mods roundup? Do you know of any mods for AC or any other sim you think we should feature? What mod do you enjoy playing? Let us know in the comments section below!
