"Lap of the Gap" track for Assetto Corsa

This is only a patch (see Updates tab).

You must also download and install parts 1 and 2 from here, unless you already have:

Part 1:

Part 2:

REQUIRED: GrassFX -- please enable this, option in Custom Shaders Patch settings, with Medium or better. (You can run without it, but it will look terrible.)

The Wicklow Mountains are located 30 kilometers south of Dublin. This track of real roads represents a small portion of it.

I have created layouts for the full track and have split the track in to 4 sections. It is realistically very narrow in places (especially section 4) and has some very tight, low-speed turns.

Section 2 and 3, in the mountains, are very open and have very little trackside objects for reference. Also, there are large drainage ditches that will eat your wheels. This area can be very difficult and frustrating if you're not patient.

It has no AI or cameras (at least not yet). It's too narrow to race anyway -- it's best for time-trial/rally runs.

I'd like to add more detail, but would like to get an idea of the users performance experience first.

Feedback is very welcome. Please report bugs, missing features or if you think that you could help!

This track is bloody amazing. It looks and flows so well. Even early on, its one of my favorite open road experiences in AC. I had a wonderful drive in a Elise Step1 that was almost like driving in real life.
Fantastic job, jaws drop with SOL actually.
Wonderfull Track , romantic, fun and pretty a nice drive sundays with your beloved ones. Some people here, also me reported, that the track makes errors, i know why.

You have to Download Link one and two from "Wicklow Mountains" Part 1 of 2 there are "2 blue links to download" and then you have to download the Wicklow Mountains Part 2 link, you know?

There a "2 LINKS" in part "ONE" like 389mb and 311mb (the 2 blue links in the description, not use only the red download button) and part 2 has the last one link, that makes 3 in the sum
Amazing cruising roads with stunning scenery! Thanks for sharing :D
Love it, would say maybe break up the sections of the road to be old and new like the real gap. possible change some textures here and there for higher res stuff but great to get out and do some "rings" up there XD

For sure will be making an Edit for this :D

Good suggestions, will get them on my list. Thanks!
Stunning scenery. These are the roads one can only dream of. Thank you for these.
Loved driving it, The fact there’s barely hint that it’s present day really makes it excellent for driving historical rally cars from the Pessio Mini to the Audi Quattro, I hope it stays feeling like that.

The only thing I feel may need improvement is adding road bumps because it feels freshly laid but other than that it’s the best looking semi-freeroam track I’ve driven, the off camber corners add challenge and going 100mph really feels claustrophobic on some of the roads, it’s brilliant.

It maybe worth looking at pacenotes, as it’s very scary without them, and what I mean by that is by using Assettos in game corner name app to tell you what angle or degree of corner is.

Thanks, will look into both those suggestions.
Epic scenery, always loved Irish roads. Please keep developing this!
Really fun, you have got the feel of the roads really well, only live 5 mins from there, would love to see it extended to viewpoint, proper job man
Love these types of tracks.
has a lot of potential, though my cars in VR are flickering a lot . Am I doing s.th. wrong?

Apparently this is an issue in Assetto with large tracks. Have you tried the patch? PM me if you need the link.
REALLY NICE and big work! THANK YOU!
Would like to see this a little bit more finished, would be great!!
I live nearby. I see a lot of lads living nearby in the reviews. Let's get together and do some laps in real life after lockdown :D

Thanks -- you think lockdown will ever end??
Took the Evo Tommi Makinen on it and it was wow, just wow. At the end of it, I looked up Glendalough Green. I want to eat there, right now! OK, need to do this again, hopefully a clean run this time and maybe in the Scooby 22B. Ah, bliss.

Thanks. Excellent work. Great for practising looking out in the distance, practising heel and toe, ie. real world stuff.
just finished a lap a its not to bad hope it gets updates good map for diffin but sadly only 4 pits cant couldn't host it on my server for diffin
A real treat. Thank you for your work!
i live 20 mins from sallys gap and man have to say you done a savage job keep it up
Excellent fun, and perfectly captures the feel of narrow back-roads in Ireland (and the UK for that matter). Reminds me of the roads I grew up with.
big challenge to make something like this from scratch and it is overall pretty immersive in VR which can be a tough test, often RTB tracks will look really fake with repetitive patterns of things but this works nicely. looking forward to any updates
Super. Thank you
