Assetto Corsa Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca VS Real Track
A week ago, Kunos Simulazioni released the Bonus Pack 3 for Assetto Corsa free of charge as a way of saying thanks to the Assetto Corsa community members for their loyal support.
The free DLC did not only include seven stunning car models but also featured a highly detailed laser-scanned version of the Laguna Seca Raceway track. Shortly after its release, a lot of community social media channels reported that the Assetto Corsa Laguna Seca track was easily the best digital recreation of the famous North American track, out of any racing platform.
Now the ’60fps Sim Racing’ YouTube channel released a 4K comparison video, to find out how representative the Kunos Simulazioni Laguna Seca Raceway version really is when compared to its real-world version.
Laguna Seca Raceway
Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, previously known as Laguna Seca Raceway) is a paved road racing track used for both auto racing and motorcycle racing, originally constructed in 1957 near both Salinas and Monterey, California, USA.
The current racetrack is 2.238 miles (3.602 km) in length with a 180 feet (55 m) elevation change.
It has eleven turns, including the famous “Corkscrew” at Turns 8 and 8A. A variety of racing, exhibition, and entertainment events are held at the raceway, ranging from super-karts to American Le Mans racing to music festivals.
The name Laguna Seca is Spanish for “dry lake”. The area where the track is was originally a lake. The course was originally built around the lake, which has since dried up entirely. An artificial pond has since been added. Major events each year include the Monterey Sports Car Championships (WeatherTech SportsCar Championship), and the Monterey Historics for classic racecars.
