Racing on Assetto Corsa Competizione can be a lottery, with some cars performing better on certain tracks than others. Low Fuel Motorsport are looking to tackle it – and anyone can help them out!
The go-to service for quick and easy races on ACC is Low Fuel Motorsport, who run ranked online events akin to that of iRacing. If you are wanting a quick race in a GT3, GT4 or a TCX without the commitments of a league, then LFM is the place to go!
Just like iRacing, they have structured seasons with different tracks for each series every week. Currently, LFM is on Season 11 which is set to end in early October. Before the new season begins though, LFM needs players to help them out with testing custom BoP.
A Balancing Act
To ensure as equal a playing field as possible, the real life GT World Challenge series implement Balance of Performance. This can come in the form of power restricting and ballast, and can vary from track to track.
Many leagues take advantage of the changeable BoP on ACC, to varying degrees of success. LFM are now intending to do the same by opening up servers for anyone to complete hotlaps. Using all tracks on ACC, players can join and provide data for LFM to then determine the best possible BoP.
Whilst they use all tracks, the team have limited the car selection. They specify that it will not permit the usage of older cars that have since been made obsolete by newly-homologated cars.
You can find the cars that will be eligible for usage in these servers below.
- Audi R8 LMS Evo II
- Aston Martin Vantage V8 GT3
- Bentley Continental GT3 (2018)
- BMW M4 GT3
- Ferrari 296 GT3
- Honda NSX GT3 2020
- Lamborghini Huracan GT3 EVO2
- McLaren 720S GT3 EVO
- Mercedes AMG GT3 2020
- Porsche 992 GT3 R
LFM have said they will be not taking the data from other GT3 cars, instead putting ballast in those cars if they are quicker than BoP target lap times. So if you still use the 488, M6 or even the Nissan GT-R, you may have to pick a new car for LFM races if you want to win.
How To Get Involved
If you are keen to get involved and help shape the next season of Low Fuel Motorsport, check the hotlaps section of the website for word on when the servers will open up.
