Assetto Corsa Grand Prix Karting Monaco
Assetto Corsa Grand Prix Karting version of Monaco
AC GPK Monaco (2023 update) version 2.0
The tires at the inside of corners for preventing cutting corners are replaced by sausage kerbs. These will still prevent you from cutting corners, but when hitting them it will be less dramatic.
The old 2d trees are replaced by the newest 3d trees. For seeing these trees you need to have Content Shaders Patch version 0.1.79 (or later) installed. With older CSP versions or no CSP you will still see the old 2d trees. We have tested the impact on FPS, and in our tests it had no significant impact.
Not all older GPK tracks did have track lights. With the 2023 updates all tracks will have track lights.
During every Formula 1 weekend in 2023 we organize a FSGP race in the MAD Formula MFT02 on the GPK version of the Formula 1 circuit. Information can be found at simracinggp Formula Student community.
For every FSGP race there will be released a new 2023 update of the GPK track.
The big three motorsport races are Le Mans 24 Hours, Indy 500 and Formula One Monaco Grand Prix. Monaco is so challenging that only the best drivers in the world win here. This is the Grand Prix Karting version with all the iconic spots of the original recreated in miniature. To improve racing between the crash barriers and to make it more suitable for Formula Student, GPK Monaco is slightly bigger than the other GPK circuits.
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 karttracks. 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 fiction) but handmade, 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 Grand Prix Karting Monaco track is different from all other Grand Prix Karting tracks. The others are somewhat in the middle between the original F1 circuit and a regular outdoor karting track. The Monaco track is the original F1 track made smaller, with imagery buildings. The original buildings would not fit beside the smaller track.
