I've been kidnapped ....but I dont mind.

I've been a little sidetracked of late with yet another sim ...I found it on steam, heavily reduced (obviously out of date now) So I grabbed all the DLC as well, and found hundreds and hundreds of freeware downloads for it as well.
I'm sure many motor racing fans will be familiar with Assetto Corsa, I had never heard of it, it's totally addictive, and I'm still finding my way around it. Anyway, some(random) screens I made for you...hope you like them.

And before you ask, No, I don't drive, my reaction times are no good, so I leave it to the AI guy :rolleyes:

:D A quantum leap up from the old GP Legends, which I still have. It had functioning mirrors 20 years ago!

Classic racing, classic Murray Walker, ruined by YT making you wait until the Skip Ads button appears. Even 5 seconds is three times too long :angry:

Amazing clip Mike. Beautiful cars. I thought they would have stopped the race when that guy's car started to come apart :ph43r:
Everything about that era fascinates me ...motorbikes, cars, and aviation.

Glad you enjoyed it, Marty. I subscribed to the GRRC a few years back and I don't regret it. Early in the pandemic they set up their own YT Channel, which was great until YT wrecked it with their bl**dy adverts. As a member, I can see a lot of exclusive stuff. Must get over there one day, to see and hear those machines and smell the Castrol R. As you saw, they do race, not just demo runs. David Coulthard's comments after being allowed to race about 16 million quid's worth of Mercedes 300SLR were fascinating. :D
