    LA Canyons Version 1.0
    There is a free download link on this page for a 42km circuit which winds through the San Gabriel mountain range, high above Los Angeles.

    Additional VIP Roads:
    The VIP roads are separate to the standard version.
    Consisting of an additional 73km of roads, they are my way of thanking those that appreciate the time and effort involved in making this mod.

    If you have recently sent a coffee, I will be sending you an email with my thanks. Your continued support is much appreciated!

    The whole area covers 900km² of Californian mountains and canyons, and around 150km of highways, side roads, and junctions. Consisting of a large number of fast sweepers...
    Perfect for cruising, street racing and drifting.


    39km's of Angeles Crest - From Newcombs - La Cañada Flintridge
    Big Tujunga Canyon Road
    Mount Wilson Road

    This is suitable for Online Multiplayer, Quick Race and Practice sessions... Race Weekends (with AI) 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!
    No Wrong Way sign

    Remove Pit Crew (Lollipop guy)

    Designed on real roads in California, enjoy driving in Assetto

    This mod was good to start with, but with version 1.0, it is just fantastic. If you enjoy driving apart from circuit racing, this map is a must, period. It is by far the best "open public road" map for AC that I've tried. The map is huge but the attention to detail is great, better than many smaller maps. Roads are smooth and flowing, not a bumpy mess like some mod tracks. It goes without saying that this map should be enjoyed together with the Sol mod, set time progression to something like 20x, get in your favorite road car on street tyres and just drive through sunrise and sunset. There are sideroads and roadside objects to explore, and easter eggs to be found. I highly recommend the VIP version, not only does it give you access to more roads to drive while exploring the remote sites, but it also adds some roadside objects like power lines to the main area which add to the immersion even more.

    Changes the game into something more than it was. Something much greater.

    Thoroughly enjoying this, I have the full (VIP) version and very few MODS for AC compare in terms of time spent on it. I actually have to turn the track map on in order to navigate.
    drop this guy a coffee, you'll enjoy the additional layouts / track.

    The map is amazing, and I have spent more time driving around in it than i'd like to admit, but I've been having an issue with the VIP maps, which is that the car shakes a lot and it's very distracting. Any tips?

    Epic mod. The scale and attention to detail are off the charts. If you don't like this mod, you don't like driving games. It's the new gold standard.
