Assetto Corsa Grand Prix Karting Bahrain International Circuit
GP and Outer Loop
In the middle of a dessert on an island in the Middle East is a very special F1 track, the Bahrain International Circuit. It has long straights followed by sharp turns, and some very difficult turns. This Grand Prix Karting version has the GP layout and the Outer Loop layout. It is a little bumpy and therefore a challenge to drive in Formula Student.
Both layouts have working streetlights, so you can race day and night.
Grand Prix Karting
Grand Prix Karting tracks are F1 tracks with the layout of the original F1 track but the size, look and feel of real world kart tracks. No big runoff areas, but modern wide kerbs, pit not on the infield but on the outside of the track, not many grand stands but a pitbuilding which is also a grandstand. These tracks are not a resized conversion of existing tracks but scratch build. Not laser scanned (because they are fictional circuits) but hand-made, which was a bit of a challenge with some tracks with a lot of elevation in the track and the terrain surrounding the track.
The GPK tracks are originally build as kart tracks for rFactor, but specially adapted for Formula Student and converted to Assetto Corsa.

Formula Student is a competition involving universities from all over the world. Students from these universities develop, build and race these purpose-built, single-seater racecars against other universities in competitions that take place all over the world during the summer months. Formula Student is probably the most prestigious engineering competition at a student level.
MAD Formula Team
MAD Formula Team is one of these teams, representing University Carlos III of Madrid across Europe. The team is a relatively small and young team composed of over 50 students from various degrees, and currently fully focused on designing and developing the MFT01, the 2021 challenger.
