    Hi all,

    This an official continuation of the original thread over at the AC forums:
    http://www.assettocorsa.net/forum/index.php?threads/virginia-international-raceway-wip.30552/

    Thanks to everyone for your continued support of this project. As many of you know it's been a difficult few months but we have been working hard behind the scenes to bring VIR to life in all it's glory. Sorry for the lack of updates but It's with great pleasure that I'm finally able to disclose some concrete information about the current status of VIR.

    After almost two years(!) of work we are now in the closing stages of the project. All the modelling work is complete. We have all seven layouts fully working with AI. Things have been optimized and already put though several rounds of bugfixing. As of yesterday we have the first release candidate ready for testing.

    Over the next few days we'll be distributing this to selected testers for feedback (our internal group already have it).

    Once we have addressed any issues that arise, the track will be ready to release. Tentatively i'm gunning for the weekend of 9th-11 Sept.

    In the meantime here's a few key features and a couple more shots. More to follow :)

    Seven layouts fully functioning:
    Full, North, South, Grand East, Grand West, Patriot & Patriot Reverse
    33 grid spots (full course)
    2016 Spec track with new kerbing, paving and sponsors
    3D Grass
    Accurate topology (recreated from technical data and tested by actual drivers)
    Physical road mesh
    Lots of trackside details
    Extra cams by norbs
    A ton of cool stuff to discover

    Thanks again.

    DB, Rigel & Arthur666.

    Excellent news.

    Good to see you around again Darren. VIR is looking better than ever, and now with no visible gravity-defying trackside adboards :p

    Thanks for all the hard work guys.

    Really love that you guys are still on it, looks really great (but I have no idea of track modding :D). Hope the performance is in the region of the stock tracks, but with those names there I don't doubt it :thumbsup:

    It's scratch built and it didn't come from RTB so should perform just fine....

    Stunning work, I think I should be beta tester just to make sure it works with my specs, you never know I could prevent a late show stopper:);):sneaky:
