Assetto Corsa videos pop up all over YouTube, and we can't help but be mesmerized by the wonderful graphics. The tracks are precise, the cars are well modeled, and the whole experience seems like it makes for a perfect racing sim.
We can't all afford to race far flung tracks in exotic or race-ready machinery. Instead, we can fire up our gaming systems and dive in virtually—which is what we're going to do right now, in an amazing car on an excellent circuit.
This user takes us around the Nürburgring. The weapon of choice? None other than the Scuderia Glickenhaus SCG003. While the SCG003C race car didn't have the best opening time during a VLN race, the car is still an astounding machine that is clearly capable of turning out fast lap times.
We'll live vicariously through this video until we get a quality rig of our own—and it sure seems a bit more affordable when you compare it to the real thing.
