I wasn't to sure how this race would go. I had run Canada in iRacing's FRAC series last week so was still familiar with the track but I hadn't done any practice in the Lotus T125 on the Assetto Corsa version of the track. Ever.
Not sure why people would race at Monaco, simulation or real life. Anyway, we did. This is my race report.
Kunos Simulations released a small update to their simulator, Assetto Corsa, overnight. As usually, it'll be delivered to your pc via Steam, so don't sweat it. I read a bunch of words. The gist is GT3 BoP needs redoing...again...
Assetto Corsa v1.3 introduces minor Balancing of Performance (BoP) for it's GT3 cars. We look how the changes have impacted those cars and how do the three new GT3 cars compare.
While it's a few weeks late, Kunos shipped version 0.9 of Assetto Corsa yesterday. This version contains the long awaited and slightly delayed multiplayer.

Taking the season off from iRacing has given me some time to survey the Sim Racing landscape. Probably, no strike that, definitely the most anticipated title in a long time is Kunos's Assetto Corsa. Kunos, of NetKarPro fame has been working on this sim racing title for a while now, and the Tech Preview has been out for months. Now Assetto Corsa beta is out and I've spent the weeking playing with it. Here are my thoughts.
This simulator just keeps looking better and better. AC has released another in their Dev serious of videos. This one features the mighty Pagani Huayra in action around Mugello.
