A long running modding project by Dinca Andrei and CCX has resulted in the release of the Rover Mini 1.3i Cooper for Assetto Corsa today.

The 0.1 alpha version has just been uploaded to our resource manager and is ready to be tested by the community.

Make sure to check out the description first of what to expect of this alpha version. Use the support thread for improvement suggestions, bug fixes and support.

Make sure to keep an eye on the Assetto Corsa Racing Club and don't miss out on the first online racing events with this little car.

No Bram, I hadn't. Thanks.

Looks pretty good, if it drives like the real thing it should prove popular. Maybe I'll have to load up my AC to have a look, haven't touched any SimRacing for quite a long time now. :cool:
I am sure @Chris Stacey would be more than happy to throw in a club race here and there with your little car in the Aussie Racing Club :)
I would indeed :D
Stay tuned... ;)

We'd love to have you come aboard Warren, it's not a massive club, but what we may lack in numbers, we more than make up for in enjoyment and banter :)... oh and racing :roflmao:

Is the performance right on this car? I've raced the old Mini Coopers before and they have a bit more grunt than some people give them credit for.

A couple of the 'simcades' on console get them very wrong - it feels more like a wheelie bin with a lawnmower engine in some of them. :p

Mini Cooper is a pure abomination :cautious:
And how do we deal with a such abomination?
We take it to the Nordschleife, kill it, and bury it!
When I have the time for it that is.

See Samuel's post above - the stock version's performance is accurate to the real car though, I have tested the acceleration times. The step versions will be included in the same .rar file for the next release, they are just an add-on for now.
