    Which series would you most like to see made into a sim.jpg
    With Formula One and Blancpain GT having their own dedicated racing title, which other series would you most like to see recreated in full?


    For years now we've had a trend of creating racing simulations that contain multiple types of racing categories and modding opportunities, and only recently that trend would be bucked by Kunos Simulazioni and their Assetto Corsa Competizione title - the official videogame of the Blancpain GT Series.

    Making the most of the official licence, ACC has replicated the rules, regulations and details of the real series - marking the first occasion a racing sim developer has attempted this feat since the old GTR2 / Race07 days from the early 2000's.

    The question I'd like to ask is...

    if a sim racing developer was to make a standalone 'one series' racing sim, which championship would you most wish to see replicated?

    Formula Renault Eurocup that happens to run as the supporting category for Blancpain GT, add one car and two tracks to ACC plus some rules and we are done :)

    I'd like to see a DTM game again. I've never had the chance to try the Codemasters game. I don't think it was ever released in the US or Steam. It may have been a console exclusive for all I know.

    I'd have to go for a few different choices as its so hard to pick...

    BTCC
    Australian V8 Supercar
    IndyCar

    Get these three knocked out as sims, I'd be one heck of a happy chappy.

    Just imagine if the support series came in the pack too... damn!

    I'd really enjoy some more touring car sims again, with stuff along the lines of BTCC, DTM or V8 Supercars.

    Hit the nail on the head for me Paul, I rather old way of single series but for some reason pro sims shun it , may have something to do with most people wanting every car and track in every sim then have 6 flavors of physics :ninja:

    Count the series in simcade.... F1, MotoGP, Nascar, .WRC, IOM, AMA Motocross, etc.
