Interview – The Amazing Success Story Of The Assetto Corsa Franchise

Interview - The Amazing Success Story Of The Assetto Corsa Franchise

The OneLapHeroes YouTube channel’s Konstantinos Sidiras had the opportunity to interview Co-Founder and Executive Manager at Kunos Simulazioni, Marco Massarutto, and Kunos Simulazioni’s Vehicle Dynamics specialist (Aris) Aristotelis Vasilakos.

Marco and Aris talk about the past, present, and future of the Assetto Corsa franchise, starting at the early nerKar Pro days to the extreme success that is now Assetto Corsa and Assetto Corsa Competizione. A hugely successful franchise that currently is used by roughly 3,5 million users.

To quote Konstantinos, the Kunos Simulazioni team always remained the same humble, hard-working enthusiasts on a quest to create the best driving ‘game’ they could.

Needless to say, I fully agree with that statement.
