Developer Kunos Simulazioni has released screenshots and details of their new partnership with RSR Nurburg that brings the Nurburgring to their early access title, Assetto Corsa.


We are pleased to introduce RSR Nurburg, new official partner of Assetto Corsa. Working at the Nurburgring for the last 15 years, RSR Nurburg features a team of instructors and drivers among the best in the world, together with two permanent workshops and offices, one at the Nurburgring and one at Spa Francorchamps, also base of the Official Driving Academy of the Circuit of Spa Francorchamps. This partnership will develop on different ways:


Nurburgring Nordschleife – As you probably know, the staff of Assetto Corsa is currently working on the reproduction of the legendary Nordschleife circuit, using Lasescan technology to recreate a to the centemeter exact copy of the real counterpart, providing unparalleled results in terms of realism and behaviour of the vehicles dynamic model. An equally important aspect of driving on a race track is the extensive use of reference points used by experienced drivers to use 100% of the track: RSR Nurbug’s instructors have an extensive knowledge of the track layout and reference points and will co-operate with the development team to include all the visual and geographical reference points used by local drivers to assure the highest possible level ofrealism: thanks to this co-operation Assetto Corsa will be an invaluable tool to learn and master the most dangerous race track in the world.


Handling and Dynamic model – RSR Nurburg and Assetto Corsa share an exclusive garage: BMW M3 E30 and E92, Lotus Exige S, Elise, 2 Eleven, McLaren MP4-12C, together with Nissan GT-R, Toyota GT-86 and many other cars that will be included in Assetto Corsa’s garage. RSR Nurburg’s instructors knowledge, developed driving the same cars on the most comprehensive race track in the world is an invaluable know-how: the dynamic model and handling of the in-game cars will be further refined and developed by the feedback of the instructors thanks to a professional simulator installed at RSR Nurburg’s headquarters, chasing the perfect correspondence between reality and simulation.


Tests, events and contests – Assetto Corsa’s development team has already been supported by RSR Nurburg’s team during the last trip to the Nurburgring Nordschleife, using cars from RSR fleet both for dynamic tests on track and for shooting. This kind of support will be extended to many more tracks like Vallelunga and Spa Francorchamps, where Assetto Corsa’s development team will be able to use RSR Nurburg’s cars for dynamic tests and surveys, with the ultimate goal to deliver the most ralistic and perfected car simulation. RSR Nurburg and Kunos Simluazioni are working together to close the gap between a simulated environment and real-life, with many initiatives to provide convenient services to all those who want to experience the thrill of driving on the track: stay tuned not to miss big news coming soon!
