5 new and upcoming sportscars which deserve future GT3 versions

Group GT3 is a set of regulations created by the FIA for converted road cars to be used in various national and international racing series. Such as the SRO GT World Challenge, the ADAC GT Masters, or (as of 2021) DTM. Since its introduction in 2005, group GT3 has seen 52 homologations, while some GT3 spec cars without homologation are allowed to participate in some GT3 series. GT3’s homologation strategy ensures a low development cost for manufacturers, meaning it is an attractive option to many brands to market themselves to...

Design: TAG Heuer Porsche 99XE ACC Custom Livery

Formula E. People seem to either love it, or hate it. Myself, I think the series has great potential but still has some problems to overcome. However, it is undeniable that Formula E has spawned some great looking liveries. Last time around, I recreated the Audi ABT e-tron FE07 livery. This time around, I converted the TAG Heuer Porsche 99X Electric. First, we’ll have a quick tour of the livery which is based on the Formula E car pictured below, after which there’s a download link for a free download of...

Make your own 2022 Formula 1 livery with this free template

On 22 January 2017, I published a post. This post, titled “Make your own 2017 Formula 1 livery with this template“, allowed users to do as much as as the title described: let people use my pre-made template to create custom liveries. I linked this to reddit’s /r/Formula1 subreddit, where it quickly took off. Not only did it receive a lot of short-term popularity, it remains (even now) one of my most visited posts. In the sidebar, where my top 10 viewed posts over a 48-hour period are showcased, it...

Design: Marlboro McLaren Honda Custom ACC Livery

For our upcoming Ayrton Senna Tribute Event (May 1st, 2021) I created an in-game livery resembling the iconic Marlboro McLaren Honda livery (run in F1 by McLaren from 1973 through 1996), which I used to create the events’ poster. I thought that would be the end of it, but I got a glimpse of inspiration. I used said glimpse to further expand upon this idea, and make a proper Marlboro McLaren Honda. Specifically, I based it on the McLaren MP4-6 with which Ayrton Senna won the 1991 Formula 1 World...

Announcing The Privateer’s Pitbox’ DTM GT3 Challenge!

With the SuperTrofeo wrapped up, it is time to look towards The Privateer’s Pitbox‘ next event. Before we head into our next “big” league, we will organize a short championship. The title might have ruined the surprise, but our next (small) tournament will be the DTM GT3 Challenge! The DTM GT3 Challenge is a short (two nights with two events each) championship styled after the 2018 DTM season. This means we have selected three GT3 cars reflecting their DTM counterparts: the 2015 Mercedes AMG GT3, the 2016 BMW M6 GT3...

What’s next for ACC? Exploring all scenarios!

Assetto Corsa Competizione (ACC) has been doing very well, yet the roadmap for the game remains empty. This has caused a question to arise among ACC’s fans: what’s next for ACC? In this post, I will look at all the available information and explore different scenario’s based on what I know from interviews and from talking to people working at Kunos myself. I cross-examine those with ideas based on fan demands. While I do not have a complete picture of what is happening behind the scenes, I have some (basic)...

Where else can you experience a field of entrants with over 160 vehicles driving at full speed for 24 hours around the longest racetrack in the world? As a prelude to all...

ACC Playercount Round-up: February 2021

It’s March 1st, and for me that means one thing: time to reflect on ACC’s player statistics over February. Last month, I predicted a new peak concurrent player record due to the (at the time of writing) rumoured release of the British GT DLC. I also predicted it would shatter January’s numbers. Lets see if I was overly optimistic, or absolutely right! A short TL;DR in advance: British GT DLC sets new peak concurrent record (6239); February 2021 is, once again, the biggest in terms of player activity (+8.13%) March...
