Nürburgring Nordschleife Announced for Assetto Corsa Competizione

Assetto Corsa Competizione

In a post to the Nürburgring’s social media pages, the Nordschleife has been officially announced as coming to Assetto Corsa Competizione.

Back in the summer, during the SRO Motorsport yearly Press Conference, rumours among the sim racing community began to swell concerning the Nürburgring Nordschleife and Assetto Corsa Competizione.

In fact, the SRO Motorsports Group announced that it would integrate the Nürburgring 24 Hours into its Intercontinental GT Challenge. This lead sim racers to wonder if the SRO’s official game, Assetto Corsa Competizione, could feature the Green Hell.

Well, several months of speculation later and we have our answer. A tweet posted by the Nürburgring’s social media team reveals the circuit in ACC. The post reads, “We’re looking forward to experiencing the legendary Nordschleife and the 24hNBR atmosphere at Assetto Corsa Competizione!”

It seems then that ACC will soon receive an update including the 20.83 km circuit. However, there are many more additions Kunos is yet to deliver. So one might suggest that this content drop will be larger than any other before it.

In fact, a year before the SRO Nürburgring 24 announcement, the 2022 SRO Press Conference mentioned the addition of GT2 machinery to ACC. Over a year and a quarter since the announcement, fans are still awaiting these amateur-centric GT cars.

With GT2 racers also joining the Nürburgring 24 Hour fray this year as part of the experimental GTX class, could we see a selection of cars release alongside the Nordschleife for ACC? Only time will tell.

As yet, no date is announced for the circuit release. Furthermore, we do not know if the track will come with the GT2 pack. However, with development preparing for an “Assetto Corsa 2” launch next year, one must assume a December release is on the cards.
