Virginia International Raceway 1.1

Scratch buit for AC by Darren Blythe, RIgel, Lilski and Arthur666

  1. dazzyb2k3

    After almost 2 years work we are very proud to release this great track for Assetto Corsa.

    Virginia International Raceway (commonly known as "VIR") is a road course located in Alton, Virginia. VIR hosts amateur and professional automobile and motorcycle events, driving schools, club days, and private test rentals. It is most famous for hosting the IMSA Weathertech Sportscar Championship which takes place every August.

    The track itself has been painstakingly modeled from scratch using several sources of technical data, countless photographs, hours of video footage and real world feedback from drivers and racers.

    It contains all seven layouts: Full, Grand East, Grand West, North, South, Patriot & Patriot Reverse. All are fully functioning with AI. Each layout has it's own look and feel in accordance with real life. The 'Full' layout is 2016 race spec as you will see it in the Sportscar Championship/Oak Tree GP

    A huge amount of effort went into this project. We hope you enjoy it.

    Please take the time to check out the release notes included in the download.

    Amazing track. The level of detail is unbelieveable. Even better than some Kunos tracks, and the fack you can drive on the paddock and the roads around the circuit just blows my mind. Just 1 question. Will you guys include the go kart layout as a proper layout? It is perfect for go kart racing, but sadly it doesn´t have timing

      Hi off on, thanks for the review. Glad you are enjoying the track. Actually, there is a way to enable the Kart Track - we just made you work for it :P. Have a read through the VIR topic in the forums - specifically anything to do with the VIP files ;)

    I used this for a VR vs. Reality experiment I did for my YouTube channel and was very impressed with the accuracy. I ended up within a second of my real-life self (grant it with some left on the table in the game, but it was a test of intuitive-ness, so I limited my practice in the game). https://youtu.be/dBNED5QfjUY if anyone's curious.

    Great track indeed. Curbs and Trees around need some more attention, and to reduce some brightness of many objects, including grass, which is all around.

    This track is nothing short of fantastic. Big gratitude from a novice sim-racer with a few decades of AutoCAD 20xx drafting experience in civil engineering, 3DStudio.... definitely a major accomplishment in 3D modeling and texturing. VIR's a day trip away from home; this is close enough to real for me :)
