After suffering a few delays, Reiza Studios is now close to releasing the Autodromo Nazionale Monza for the Automobilista 2 racing simulator. To get the hype going, they have shared a new set of rather impressive preview screenshots.
The Monza Premium DLC pack for AMS2 will include both the modern and historical versions of the famous venue, including the high-speed 1971 layout with no chicanes.
The Autodromo Nazionale Monza is one of the world’s most famous racing circuits located near the city of Monza, north of Milan, in Italy. Operational since 1922, it is the third oldest racing track in the world. It was purpose-built for both the Italian Grand Prix and to give Italian automakers a high-velocity track on which to R&D their products.
In 1954, work began to entirely revamp the circuit, resulting in a 5.750 kilometers (3.573 mi) course, and a new 4.250 kilometers (2.641 mi) high-speed oval with banked Sopraelevata curves. The two circuits could be combined to re-create the former 10 kilometers (6.214 mi) long circuit, with cars running parallel on the main straight. The track infrastructure was also updated and improved to better accommodate the teams and spectators. The banking held the last race in 1969 with the 1000 km of Monza. but still exists today, albeit in a decayed state.
In addition to Formula One, the circuit previously hosted the World Touring Car Championship, TCR International Series, Superbike World Championship, Formula Renault 3.5 Series, and Auto GP. Monza currently hosts rounds of the SRO GT Series, International GT Open, and various Formula Championships, as well as a host of local championships such as the TCR Italian Series, Italian GT Championship, Porsche Carrera Cup Italia, and Italian F4 Championship. Once a year, the venue is dedicated to the popular Monza Rally Show.
Automobilista 2 is currently available via Steam for €36.99. The Automobilista 2 + 2020-2021 Season Pass Bundle is available for €114.28.
