AC GPK Abu Dhabi
(2023 update version 2.0)

2023 Update

In 2023 we release an update for every GPK track F1 is racing on this year with tires at the inside of corners for preventing cutting corners replaced by sausage kerbs, 2d trees replaced by 3d trees and there are track lights on all tracks.

FSGP 2023

During every Formula 1 weekend in 2023 we organize a FSGP race in the MAD Formula MFT02 on the GPK version of the Formula 1 circuit. Information can be found at simracinggp Formula Student community.
For every FSGP race there will be released a new 2023 update of the GPK track.

The track
It is one of the most expensive F1 tracks in the world and looks like a real world conversion from a modern karting complex to a F1 track with additional layouts. This is a (fictional) karting version of the 2021 layout of the Abu Dhabi Yas Marina Circuit including the new banked turn, tailor made for Formula Student. It has almost all buildings from the real track including the harbor with yachts, the famous hotel with track view and Ferrari World. And don't forget the unique tunnel for the pit exit.

Grand Prix Karting
Grand Prix Karting tracks are F1 tracks with the layout of the original F1 track but the size, look and feel of real world karttracks. No big runoff areas, but modern wide kerbs, pit not on the infield but on the outside of the track, and a pitbuilding which is also a grandstand. These tracks are not a resized conversion of existing tracks but scratch build. Not laser scanned (because they are fiction) but handmade, which was a bit of a challenge with some tracks with a lot of elevation in the track and the terrain surrounding the track.

The Grand Prix Karting Abu Dhabi Yas Marina circuit is a bit different from other Grand Prix Karting tracks. The others are somewhat closer to a regular outdoor karting track and a bit less to the original F1 circuits, but the Abu Dhabi track is much closer to the original F1 track.

The Assetto Corsa GPK tracks are dedicated for Formula Student and the rFactor GPK tracks are dedicated for karting.
