Start the sim racing week by downloading the latest update from Kunos Simulazioni, with Assetto Corsa Competizione Hotfix 1.7.8 out now for the PC version via Steam.
It’s not a massive release, but one of the main features is a bonus Alpine Esports Series livery. It marks the start of qualification for the esports competition, which runs until May 8th, 2021, with the top 24 moving on to compete in six races on May 25th and June 1st, with an eventual champion getting to drive a real Alpine GT4, and visit the Alpine Cup Lucry-Levis race track and factory.
Besides some further minor balancing changes for four of the GT3 cars, probably the biggest changees are to remove 90-minute free practice options from all championship race weekends, and the fuel widget will now show a calculation based on the most recent three laps. So something to keep in mind when you’re working on your pit strategies.
