So here it is.
After nearly two years of developing and 10,000km of testing here is my version of Sachsenring.

Installation: Just extract to your content/tracks directory


track info:
The track layout is from 2020/21. Every year the curbs, run-off areas, etc changes a little bit. Sachsenring is primarily used as motorbike race track so corner markers, curbs, etc are typical for bikers. Also the road surface is very flat without any bigger bumps. (repavement in early spring 2017)

The big events at Sachsenring are: MotoGP, GTMasters, Porsche Carrera Cup Germany, GT4 Germany, TCM Germany, Formula 4 Germany
For these events all of the grand stands, the pit area and all other event specific constructions are installed. So the surrounding looks completely different than on a normal track day.
Night races are forbidden on Sachsenring because of noise pollution.
But I've done some night lighting so we can enjoy some night time racing in our Sim.

Special track features:
  • Modeled with Open LIDAR Data DGM1 and Google Earth Photogrammetry. The results are a quite accurate road mesh. After first modeling of the road mesh we measured the banking of the omega in real life and it was nearly perfect.
  • 3 layouts (full layout with event surrounding, full layout with trackday surrounding, short layout with trackday surrounding (this is only used for formula4 fun track day events)
  • 3 different event skins (GT Masters 2018-2020)
  • Seasons plus additional winter tree skin (CSP)
  • Animated track marshals, camera jib and camera crew at pitlane area (CSP)
  • Animated helicopters, vehicles and the "wacky waving inflatable arm flailing tube man" (CSP)
  • Working digital clock texture on start gantry (CSP)
  • Working digital flags (CSP)
  • Working video screens (CSP)
  • Amount of spectators are CSP adjusted. Also other obects like the tv helicopter are affected.
  • Pit box garage doors are closed/open depending on amount of opponent cars.
  • RainFX and Nightlighting (CSP)
  • Track surroundings are also drivable. Have fun exploring!

This track is optimised to run with CSP and SOL but will also load on Vanilla AC, but then of course you won't be able to enjoy all the goodies.

Digital clock texture is optimised for CSP 1.72 and newer with custom MSAA on
(settings->custom shaders patch->graphic adjustments->Use custom MSAA resolve)

If you experience any flickering car glass issues please disable "Local cubemaps for cars" in Reflections FX or update CSP to v1.70 or newer

I shout out a big THANK YOU! to the following people:
xedos6 - for helping me out with tons of information on Sachsenring and a big help on development. Without him it wouln't been possibel to add all these track details.
Johnr777 and Lilski - for constructive feedback and help with all the modeling problems I focused during development.
Mike and Chris for such great preview videos. I'm really honored.

Have fun and see you on the track!

thank you.
Amazing track, very high detail.
Had an old, mostly unfinished Sachsen ring mod before and I was really looking for something accurate.
And this mod delivered. Highly recommend, very fun to race on.
absolutely amazing work mate. the only thing is that brands of the flaggs are wrong. for instance ADAC is mirror wise. maybe something for an update
Thanks for the review. Flags looks like this in real life because of their transparent fabric.
This is a master piece!

go to video's or the ACF Playlist, and look for the title above. Enjoy the view of the track ( and race ) from a drone cam. Just a track with so muck detail. I took the time to drive around the area off the track with a 4 wheeler. This is a wonderful gem. Thank you so much for your contribution to the community!
This track is overlooked gem, and is ideally suited to racing slower cars like the MX-5 Cup. The implementation by Gunnar is staggering, and the attention to detail is insane. I've had so much fun racing around here in the Mazda just before sunset. Excellent work!
Real nice, looks great and has some fun elevation change for a shorter circuit!
Wenn ich könnte, würde ich mehr als fünf Sterne vergeben, danke Gunnar für dieses Meisterwerk! Ich hatte auf der bisherigen Version schon so viel Freude! Eine Frage noch: wäre es möglich, die 2022er Version als Update zur bisherigen Strecke anzulegen, oder muss es unbedingt eine neue Strecke sein?
Danke nochmal und viele Grüße aus Bayern!
Dadurch, dass sich soviel geändert hat, wäre es einfach zu unübersichtlich mit den ganzen Layouts geworden.
Fantastic mod of a very underated track . Thankyou.
From a technical perspective this is still the most impressive track in Assetto Corsa, no doubt. And the fact that you're still updating it is truly a Chad move! This is probably my 3rd or 4th review on this track but mate your updates are always 10/10. It looks great, most if not all CSP features are implemented, the road mesh is breathtaking... I'm not exaggerating when saying that this is the benchmark for what an AC track can be.

Btw, if anyone wants to try a cool race:
Do a Caterham Super7 race with friends or AI. It's insane fun to throw those 540kg machines around. The elevation changes and camber is perfect for them. And the AI spline allows for amazing races with AI.
many thanks, will try in 2hrs time after its downloaded. lol
Welcome to RaceDepartment, a website forcing downloads a less than 100kb/s the most part of the day. My last download in this place because in 2022 this is not acceptable. Congratulations RD..

The track is really good, thanks you :)
My last 5 star in this place are for you
Fantastic track, i had it before the updates and it was great, but now it's even better
Beautiful job, I've spent many hours driving this track and many more to come. Big thanks!
Danke, danke, danke.
Mit Sicherheit eine der absoluten Topstrecken für AC.
Bin schon selbst auf dem Sachsenring gefahren, deswegen immer ein Genuss..
Not enough animations…

Kidding aside, this track is the benchmark for detail and accuracy, well done Gunnar!
Could we please have another link for this track because the link provided takes hours to download?
Absolut geil - vielen Dank! P.S. Hab einen Schreibfehler entdeckt, auf dem Dach ("Sipmly Saxony") - siehe dein erster Screenshot.
Oh Mann... ich glaub's nicht, dass mir das nicht aufgefallen ist. Kommt im nächten patch dann.
Racing on this track is pure joy
