    The awesome looking Atlanta Motorsports Park is here!


    Previewed just yesterday, a brand new and free circuit addition to the highly regarded kart racing simulation KartKraft is available to download now, joining the sim as part of the latest update to this increasingly impressive Unreal 4 powered racing title.

    Developed over several years by Australian studio Black Delta, KartKraft has continued to impress in recent months as it grows and expands into what is turning out to be an impressive simulation of the world of kart racing.

    In this latest build of the game we get our first bit of new post release content, with the US based Atlanta Motorsports Park venue making a debut within the title. Fast, undulating and with plenty of room to race against your fellow karting rivals, this looks like a pleasing addition to the game, and with limited content available at this stage of development, one that will surely be welcomed by fans of the software.

    Looking forward to giving this a go soon.
    This title keeps getting better and hopefully one day we may get the European tracks like Buckmore, Bayford, Glan-y-Gors, Rye House etc., then I'll be in Kart racing heaven.

    Reminds me of early access AC in a way, looks good, driving feel is good, not the best optimized, not polished as a "game", but the driving is fun and made me want to take a lot of laps in practice. Couldn't have too many opponents without downgrading graphics. Really nice new track with big elevation change. Not regretting supporting the title and hoping for some quick online races some day. Also, really cool in VR.

    Along with the now sadly forgotten Istanbul Park - it's one of my favourite Tilkedromes. Add immersive driving model and fun karts for a perfect recipe. Just in time for the weekend!

    Thank you Black Delta - keep up the awesome work!

    The track is like a rollercoaster...an absolute blast because unlike a rollercoaster YOU are in control.
    That is, if you're lucky. ;)

    Is there an official list of upcoming tracks?

    And, when are the other track layouts (for the existing tracks) expected to materialize?

    @Marc Collins - You can check out our current roadmap here. We'll be adding more layouts for each circuit during EA.

    Well took the plunge and am not disappointed, not spent much time on it yet but what I have has been rather exhilarating, did a little bit of Karting way back when and this bought it all rushing back in an instant. Runs like a dream and makes my ears bleed, highly recommended, especially for the £11.99 I paid for it. :thumbsup:

    This is seriously good. Today I thought I would play around with the setups and wanted to share a good setting that works very well. If you play about with the driver weight distribution forward and back you can get very good control over the kart. Not sure what to do with all the other settings but that works very well so far.
    Awsome Sim this.
