Assetto Corsa: Highlands track & Quattro S1 E2 released for PC

Kevin Dooley On February 15, 2017

Hot off the heels of the Porsche Pack Vol 3 release for consoles, PC owners can now enjoy the release of the fictional Scottish track along with the newly added Audi Sport Quattro S1 E2, both available now for no charge.

The Scottish track goes by the name of “Highlands” and comes in four different layouts including a 12,191 metre long version and a drift version which is said to promote long powerslides. You can view the track in all its glory in the video below.


The iconic Audi Sport quattro S1 E2 has also been added to Assetto Corsa. The rally car was a product of the lenient homologation rules which only required a production run of a paltry 200 cars. The car was driven to success by the Swedish sensation Stig Blomqvist who won five of twelve rounds to be crowned the 1984 World Champion.

You can view more details on each of the four Highlands track layouts below along with the v1.12 changelog.

Highlands - The original layout, 8152 meters long, filled with fast flowing path with curves and several jumps.

Highlands Long - An extension of the original layout, 12191 meters long and has all the characteristics of the original layout. This layout features some slower curves, a fast series of left and right turns, after a passage between rocks and the distinctive 3km long "Cabhag straight"

Highlands Drift - A configuration born to create long powerslides with supercars and hypercars. At 5167 meters long, this layout features long, flat and smooth curves, perfect for holding a constant power slide. The "tower lùb", guards the surroundings at the top of the hill.

Highlands Short - The shortest configuration, only 1714 meters, but based entirely inside the city. Incredibly intense and requires the concentration of a pro.

All four layouts share the same starting positions and pit lane, as well as the first corner and final 2 corners.

FIXES INCLUDE
* Improved and updated V10 tyre model for all cars available
* Improved and updated cars handling and chassis balance and inertia for all cars available
* Brake fade for all vintage cars
* Improved tyre wear and tyre graining algorithms taking more into account the load operation for each tyre.
* General bug fixes and corrections and improvements all around.
* Fanatec Leds and display now supported
