    Welcome to this rt-Suzuka Special DRM Event
    Registration


    This is a special event for the Assetto Corsa League. You are free to join the league. You do so just by registering for the events.

    Mod: DRM v1.3 Revival mod
    Track: rt-Suzuka
    Date: Monday, November 23
    Time: 20:00 GMT

    We are in the middle of an Assetto Corsa DRM series. But I think it will be nice to do a special event with this mod on the fantastic rt-Suzuka track. The cars suit this track very well as you can see in the video below.

    All league members who enter this event must drive the same car and skin as they do in the current DRM series.

    I hope you will enjoy this event and have a great time.

    I tried this track yesterday and it is spectacular with these cars, but I always find Suzuka very nice to drive ;) A proper race track this is.
    I will check my agenda right now!

    cool will try and be there for this. Bit disapointed i have to stick with my Div1.5 car though, as its not quite cutting the mustard and only one other runner in the same car (i think). I should have binned it for a proper Div1 car from race 2 onwards.

    Everybody already has a car and skin, so that's easier for me.

    Great port from a great sim. Goes smooth and looks natural, as well as Bathurst :)

    Hello John,
    Just wanted to let you know there is another version of Suzuka that is, imo, best looking, closer to the real one, and also much less forgiving with the track limits, particularly at the Degner bend, 130R and the chicane. Because as the track is designed from the SRO download, it looks very likely that there will be much abuse to me, especially at the Degner bend..
    Unfortunately, the version I have doesn't seem to be on RD, at least I didn't find it.
    Any thoughts ?

    SRO always runs the tracks without the penalty setting "on". I think the current one is good enough to do the job.
    Protests for cutting have always been made by the othere drivers themselves.

    That wasn't my point actually, I know that we run the tracks without the cutting penalties "on" : I just was saying that this track sums several places where it is too much forgiving control or performance wise. In the reality and to my knowledge, the Degner bend has never been flat like that, and it's well known to be a trap if you throw your car on its kerb. No one would drive on it unless taking a very high risk to end in the opposite sand. Quite the same story above the 130R's kerb even if not as much. About the chicane, it's another problem : it's almost more grippy outside of the tarmac than on it. :eek::rolleyes:
    The version I have is also looking a bit better, has a tad less grip and reflects more accurately the real track from what I can judge by watching plenty of onboards at Suzuka. ;)

    Hm there's several Suzukas out there, but this track is the latest version and laser scanned.

    Sorry Maxime, but if it's not broken, I will not change it. It's not just 1,2,3, you know. Uploads, downloads, database changes for names, versionnumbers ect.
    Like Filip said, this track is laser scanned and should therefore be good enough.

    Yup I get you of course, was just a try. :)

    Edit : It seems I was comparing with older versions of Suzuka, I believe it has been modernised in the early 2000 but maybe also more recently.
