    A 42km (26 miles) circuit winding through the San Gabriel mountain range, high above Los Angeles.

    There are also another 73km+ of extra VIP roads for anyone kind enough to send a coffee. Thanks in advance and I hope you enjoy the sheer scale of the whole area :)
    Includes:
    39km's of Angeles Crest - From Newcombs - La Cañada Flintridge
    Big Tujunga Canyon Road
    Mount Wilson Road

    The whole area covers 900km² of California mountains and canyons. And around 150km of highway, side roads, and side roads off of those sideroads... they're all real world sideroads.

    These roads are among those used in "The Smoking Tire" videos. Consisting of a large number of fast sweepers...Perfect for cruising, street racing and drifting.

    This is suitable for Online Multiplayer, Quick Race and Practice sessions... Race Weekends work only up to Qualifying.
    I would recommended using a high aggression setting for the AI, so they're able to race door to door on these narrow roads!

    How to remove Pit Crew & Wrong Way Sign!

    This track is ALL the way downtown. As good as anything I've seen in Assetto.

    I think one may need to have grown up in SoCal to appreciate how well this captures the San Gabriel Mts.

    Now....hillclimb up Euclid Ave. to the top of Mt. Baldy. :) I did that EVERY weekend for many years.

    This is stunning! Reminded me of TDU2 while I was aimlessly speeding through the bends. Well worth the donation already and I can't wait to get the link for the extra roads. This for me is relaxing after a stressful week. The graphics are very good and the FFB is very detailed making sure the cars handle very well. Everyone should chip in for a cuppa as this guy has done an awesome job and we need to support this kind of talent and effort!

      Thanks for the support mate, and really nice to hear it's a great form of stress relief. Have fun exploring all the extra roads....
      a large update for them will be coming very soon!
      Great to hear that as well as the visuals... the FFB is very detailed... It makes the 300 million+ polys I used to make it...
      all the more worthwhile!
      Cheers!

    i love this, its amazing.

    Ive been watching Matt Farrah doing his One takes (youtube) since he started, and this is spot on, WELL DONE.

    I decided to support the creator with a Cup of coffee (£5) and got the link for the extra piece of roads, and that in my oppinion is £5 well spend.
    Running it with the 2k texture setup, in a AE86 Tuned and Loving it :D

      Thanks Yosemite... Glad you're a Smoking Tire fan, it's an awesome Youtube Channel! Living in the UK... I couldn't help making this just to drive 'The Smoking Tire' roads in AC!

      Cheers for the support... The extra roads will be having a large update very very soon (after some more testing)
      Plenty of things are coming!
      Have some great runs in your AE86... and maybe see you online one day soon!
