Assetto Corsa: Pre-War Race Cars & Tracks (1919-1940)

This is my attempt at creating a list of all the Car & Tracks for Assetto Corsa from the Pre War Era (1919-1940). Please feel free to share any that I have missed. I hope this thread becomes an awesome resource and collection of all the Pre-War mods available for AC.

Tracks (2):
1937 AVUS
The link is located on this page: https://www.racedepartment.com/threads/1937-auto-union-type-c-wip.171993/page-6

1938 Donington Park (Rating: A [Really good track, amazing attention to detail, I can only run 9 AI or I get Frame rate issues as there is a lot for the PC to render])
https://www.racedepartment.com/downloads/donington-park-grand-prix-circuit-1938.17313/

Cars (9):
1923 Bugatti Type 32
(Rating: A [Amazing, FFB feels great])
https://www.racedepartment.com/downloads/bugatti-type-32.28493/

1923 Voisin C6 "Laboratoire"
(Rating: A [Amazing, FFB feels great])

1931 Bugatti Type 51
(Rating: D [FFB doesn't really exist])
Search: "geroda74 1931 buggati asseto corsa"

1937 Grand Prix Mod (Auto Union Type C, ERA Type B, Maserati 6CM, Mercedes-Benz W125, Alfa Romeo 12c)
(Rating: C- [Car physics are a bit wonky at times])
This one is a bit more sketchy, still works well for AI competition. It can be found for sale online by a group that ripped it from Rfactor, here is a link to a FREE version in the description of the youtube video:

1939 ZIS 101A Sport
(Rating: C- [FFB is a bit weird])
Search: "1939 ZIS 101A Sport Gt Supreme Asseto Corsa" that should pull it up.

1940 Ford Coupe
(Rating: B+ [A modern tuned version of a 1940 Coupe, so a bit more HP than it would have had, but it is a blast to drive and looks great])
Search: "asseto corsa 1940 Ford Coupe assetto-db" that should pull it up.

Future:

It's blocked cause of posting links to mods from other sites than from RD is going against the rules here. Also would you mind and edit the link off from the "1939 ZIS 101A Sport".

That mod is not worth downloading. It makes zero attempt to actually replicate the behaviour - pretty sure they just use Lotus 49 physics, which makes zero sense since its about a 30 year newer car.

Thanks.

I find them to be okay, not great, but okay. Definitely not the same as Lotus 49 because they all handle very differently. And not like the Lotus 49. They honestly feel better then the Bugatti Type 51 mod in a lot of ways. The 1937 GP mod for Automobilista is considered quite accurate and it doesn't feel that far off (it's worse, but not like out of the realm of possibility worse), its just unfortunate that AMS doesn't have more historic tracks from even the 50s or 60s, and of course AMS doesn't have Donington 1938.

The 1923 Bugatti Type 32 mod is really good though, I'm looking forward to the author's next car: the 1923 Voisin C6.
 
I do have zero interest in the modern cars like the ugly brick shaped Le Mans cars, the alien insect looks of an F1 or even worser the hybide F1 wanne be. So after the 917/T70 and F1-1967 period, is for me an no-go area. Same is counting to the modern tracks, which I’m now collecting.
If have interest, pm me and I will sent you the AC links I did collected for an Vintage ride in AC. Think publishing here will be censored.
 
PM sent, let me know if being received as this is my first pm at this forum.
Be aware some mods are not state of the art and other points of criticism, but are perfect suited as an race opponent. So I always check them out, if not being good for my VR usage, is made only for the flatworld gaming or acting like an modern car as an sample, they will be restricted to AI use only, so still being useful.
 
You have to sign-up to download it but there's a scratch-made W125 available here, https://assettocorsamods.net/resources/categories/ac-cars.2/ plus Gary's Auto-Union in the works.

Fat Alfie's Feldbergring and Deutschlandring are set in the 50s but I feel they both capture the pre-war vibe of racing on public roads, as well as being really good tracks in their own right. There's a Goodwood, and a Longford track which is post-war and a bit wonky in parts but has some great surprise corners and the long straights that were very pre-war too.

Having seen the amount of work that goes into making a mod I'm trying to get away from rips. Not going to preach, I've downloaded plenty myself, but I can imagine how it must feel to spend hundreds of hours working on something you have a passion for and then see it ripped off. Just my opinion, I know it's an argument with a lot of sides to it.

Glad you're enjoying the Tank though, one of the things I love about sim-racing is the way we can try to re-create these often bloody dangerous cars and enjoy them again without brave and slightly crazy people having to risk their lives.
 
This Ford Model T hotrod that I cant remember where its from.
Physics isnt good, stick to the road like there is no tomorrow
 
Few more tracks that were used for pre-war French Grand Prix, layouts were probably a little (or a lot) different but it's the closest we can get:

(Not ;)) Le Mans. Used for the 1921 French GP: https://www.racedepartment.com/downloads/le-grand-circuit-1967.17288/

Rheims-Gueux - 1932 French GP, apparently the track passed through the village of Gueux at the time: https://www.racedepartment.com/downloads/reims-gueux-1-0.25648/

Pau - 1938 French GP, layout looks almost unchanged:

Thanks for commenting about these, but I will only be adding tracks & cars that are specifically from 1949 or earlier. But everyone should feel free to post additional suggestions in the comments so we have more variety even if they aren't specifically from that era and included in the main post.
