    New track incoming! Check out these new Atlanta Motorsports Park preview images released by KartKraft developers Black Delta.


    With the game fairly light on content as it continues through the Early Access development cycle, Australian development team Black Delta have confirmed the US based Atlanta Motorsports Park (AMP) circuit is about to hit the simulation, teasing fans with some very impressive looking preview images from this stunning kart track.

    Not sure what the track layout is like at AMP? Check out this cool onboard video:

    From the preview post by Black Delta:

    As we approach the release of Atlanta Motorsports Park, we’re here with a preview of what is arguably the world’s most unique karting circuit. Designed by renowned F1 architect Herman Tilke and opened in 2012, the track features over 43ft of elevation change and an incredibly technical chicane complex. If you thought Eau Rouge was steep, just wait until you try this in VR!

    Interesting license they secured. It's a very good kart track indeed. Looking forward to also comparing this versus the rFactor 2 release.

    Maybe a bit off, but I'm always wishing they rework those in-game menues. They really take my desire to play away.

    My local track! I try to race their monthly championship when I can. It’s a really fun track, with a very technical downhill-hairpin-uphill section on sector 1. It took me a few tries to get it right. Turn 1 can be flat, but it takes courage, a good kart and a perfect racing line.
    It’s probably the best Tilke track after Turkey! Hahahahaha

    Well, it has a pre-beta feel to it, like they weren't even trying. Plus, you have to navigate like 5 different menues to enter a race, when all those options could fit a single screen. Not that every other game designers out there get it right. I often find myself struggling with the likes of Milestone or ACC menues, like I never figure them out by intuition. Must be me...

    @LeonS Have you tried the latest release? The rate of rollovers has been drastically reduced.

    @gergerger The menus are definitely due for a redesign. Is your main pain point design or usability?

    @Zach Griffin I have cerebral palsy and I use VR, and the menus are incredibly frustrating to navigate using my head to point at things. Can you give us regular mouse and keyboard navigation in VR?

    I'll be glad to help beta test it. Right now it's just an amazing game I can't play.
