    Let's keep the record complete for ACC. Late :D, but complete.

    The second release in the EA program brought 3 major things: first iteration for the VR, the Misano World Circuit and the (huge) Bentley Continental GT3 car.

    Misano World Circuit

    The Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli, also known as Marco Simoncelli Circuit is a race track located next to the town of Misano Adriatico (Province of Rimini) in the frazione of Santa Monica. Originally designed in 1969 as a length of 3.488 kilometres (2.17 mi), it hosted its first event in 1972. In 1993, the track length was increased to 4.064 kilometres (2.53 mi).
    As of 2007, it began hosting the San Marino and Rimini Coast Grand Prix as part of the MotoGP World Championship. In 2012, the track was renamed to commemorate Marco Simoncelli, a local motorcycle racer who died in 2011.

    The beginning of the 1990s saw the launching of a renovation project which over successive phases guaranteed the availability of an increasingly efficient facility.

    The first expansion project dates to 1993: the track was lengthened to 4,060 meters, making it possible to use two track configurations, a long and a short one; a building was also erected with new garages, technical rooms, reception rooms and a large press-room. In 1996 and 1997, a second stage of work was carried out to complete the building and the pits. In 1998 the paddock area was extended. Construction of the 1st set of stands, with a seating capacity of 5000, was completed in 2001.

    In 2005 the circuit launched a radical renovation and modernization project. A new main entrance was inaugurated, followed in 2006 by the new medical center. At the end of 2006 the circuit was closed for evlutions. In record-breaking time, radical work was carried out not only on the track, which was lengthened to 4,180 m with a reversal in the direction of travel (now clockwise), but also on structural parts. At the end of this impressive modernization process the circuit also changed its name, becoming the ‘Misano World Circuit’.

    At the beginning of 2008 one last change: a new pit lane was realized having a length of 250 meters running parallel to the track just after the first “curva del rio” and the track entrance. Due to this modification the “rio chicane” became more marked.

    The track length is now 4226 meters and thanks to this last change Misano World Circuit is now even more spectacular as the new chicane now gives new possibilities to cars and bikes to overtake. Misano World Circuit offers a total capacity of 75,000 places 26,000 out of which are in Grandstands.

    Finally, the artificial lighting system allows to run competitions at night.

    Misano World Circuit is the only circuit in Italy and one of the few in the world hosting the two most prestigious motorcycle world championships.


    The Bentley Continental GT3

    The Continental GT3 is a rear-wheel-drive race car version of Continental GT V8 coupe, based on the Continental GT3 Concept Racer. It was unveiled at the 2013 Goodwood Festival of Speed, followed by the 2013 Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion and the 2014 Goodwood Festival of Speed.
    It includes a 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 engine rated at 608 PS (447 kW; 600 hp), as well as a Xtrac six-speed sequential gearbox with a limited-slip differential in transaxle, racing clutch, steering wheel mounted paddle operated pneumatic gear shift, Drivetrain Carbon fibre propshaft, double wishbone suspension front and rear, four-way adjustable racing dampers; hydraulic power-assisted steering, ventilated iron disc brakes front and rear, Brembo 6/4-piston front/rear calipers, driver-adjustable brake bias, FIA-specification steel roll cage, Sparco six-point FIA safety harness, onboard fire extinguisher, onboard pneumatic jack system, FIA-specification racing fuel cell, race-specification ABS and traction control, lightweight race battery, OZ Racing 18x13-inch rims with 310/710R18 tyres and the removal of the leather and wood interior trim.

    The design was completed by a specialist team of engineers from Bentley Motors supported by the Continental GT3 Technical Partner, M-Sport Ltd.

    Bentley Motorsport first entered development races with the Continental GT3 before starting full competition in the Blancpain GT Series in 2014 after completing FIA homologation. The first race began at Gulf 12 Hours, held at the Yas Marina circuit in Abu Dhabi. The Team M-Sport Wald International car completed the Gulf 12 Hours race in fourth place.[138] In May 2014, the factory team won the Silverstone round of the Blancpain Endurance Series.

    The Bentley Continental GT3 won the 2015 Blancpain GT Sprint Series championship with drivers Vincent Abril and Maximilian Buhk. In the 2015 Blancpain GT Endurance Series the Continental GT3 came just 3 points shy of winning the championship, earning second place.

    At the 2016 Bathurst 12 Hour, two Bentley Team M-Sport GT3s completed the race in third and seventh place.

    In 2016, Bentley Motorsport planned to enter 90 top-level GT races around the world in 2016, including the Blancpain GT Series, SRO Intercontinental GT Challenge, Blancpain Endurance Series, Pirelli World Challenge, GT Asia, ADAC GT Masters, The British GT Championship and the Nurburgring 24 Hours.

    The race car was entered in the 2016 Goodwood hill climb, driven by David Brabham.

    And finally, Bentley Motorsport unveiled the new Continental GT3 based on the third generation Continental GT in November 2017. The rear-wheel drive race car utilises a >550 bhp 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8. It made its race debut at the opening round of the 2018 Blancpain GT Series Endurance Cup.

    Some useful tips for the VR users:

    ACC_VR.jpg

    Before starting Assetto Corsa Competizione in VR mode, we recommend joining the game in standard mode (on screen) and double check your controls and options. After this, you are good to go!

    To center view in VR, please press CTRL + Space

    In-game navigation is possible via Gamepad or D-pad. Again, make sure you configure your navigation and enter/back keys in regular rendering mode BEFORE launching VR.

    In Documents/Assetto Corsa Competizione/Config/ you find a vrSettings.json, where you can edit the ingame HUD and the UI, including tracker lock and draw size.

    In-game keys are CTRL+left/right to move forward/backward, and CTRL+shift+left/right to scale up/down. Your settings will be saved in the aforementioned vrSettings.json file.

    Cycle press F2 key in-game to cycle to the HELP HUD, where you can also see the hotkeys.
