As some of you may know, I wrote about my recent trip to Vallelunga to visit the guys at Kunos Simulazioni and try out an early pre-alpha version of their upcoming simulator “Assetto Corsa,” in the last issue of AutoSimSport Magazine (available here).
Aris Vasilakos made a brief video of me driving the sim, nothing too special, and no HD or magical cameras in sight. This is a video made with a mobile phone on the fly, with very poor lighting conditions, that I hope gives you brief teaser into the state of development that Assetto Corsa is at.
As it stands the physics engine is in early stages, this test was in March, and a lot of progress has happened since then. However, it shows a lot of promise as to where the sim can go with further development. The video is a brief trip by me at Imola in the Formula Abarth single seater, the main things to note are the crisp turn in of the car, and the pressure put through the steering wheel force feedback under heavy braking:
You can also see in the Rivazza corners how confidently the driver can lean on the car at speed.
A brief teaser I know, and hopefully in time I can bring you more. I need more coffee, so a flight to Italy will be on the cards again soon!
