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: Mercedes AMG GT3 (+Evo)

Back in 2019, I was making these GT3 designs. I had started with the Ferrari 488 GT3 and made the Porsche 991 GT3 shortly after. Back then, I also started working on a Mercedes AMG GT3 design, but never got around finishing it. Eventually, the 2020 Evo model was announced, making the uphill battle to finish it even steeper. A couple of months back, I made the Ferrari 488 GT3 Evo, and I always meant to revisit the Mercedes design sometime. Well, today I finally got around to finishing it....

ACC livery showcase #01: ten of the best!

Now that Kunos have made it easier to create your own ACC livery, a lot more people have jumped at the opportunity to create more liveries themselves. I myself have found that this is coupled with a huge spike in traffic to my website. I thought of a way to further help my readers in creating or finding the right livery for them. My conclusion: create a showcase of some of the best liveries out there created by you, the community. Not just for inspiration, but also available to download...

Video: MrGit’s ACC League Round 6 – Zolder

Another week, another race in MrGit’s ACC League. Last sunday, I had to race home in order to make it in time for free practice. I didn’t have much practice, which might negatively affect me at the start. Without much further ado, here’s the video; The first qualifying session was a bit of a bust, with a seventh spot. The second was a whole lot better, with a second spot reserved for the grey/orange beast.  The first race started well. I got up to sixth and was preparing a defence...

Blancpain at Zandvoort: report, gallery and aftermovie.

On the weekend of the 12th to 14th of July (2019), the Blancpain travelling circus hit Zandvoort. Since I’ve been heavily investing my time in Assetto Corsa Competizione (which features the official Blancpain licensed cars) I thought it would be nice to visit a real race for once. I’ve visited Zandvoort once before, but I had never watched a race, never felt the roar of the engines pass through my stomach. All that changed on sunday the 14th of July. See/read below for my experiences! Lamborghini Supertrofeo Together with a...

Video: MrGit’s ACC League Round 2 – Brands Hatch

This week, I was preparing for round 5 of MrGit’s ACC league. Sadly, it got cancelled for an as of yet unknown reason. This doesn’t mean I can’t do a highlights video, no. I hadn’t made any video’s for the first two races, Monza and Brands Hatch. Well, make that only the first race now, as I present to you my highlights video for the Brands Hatch race. This race consisted of two qualifying sessions first, followed by two 30 minutes races. My results for qualifying: Q1: 9th, 1:24.174 Q2:...

Video: MrGit’s ACC League Round 3 – Silverstone

I’ve been league racing in MrGit@Twitch’s ACC League for quite a while now, and it is quickly becoming the highlight of my week. Not only am I racing against people on my level, they take the racing seriously too. No incessant crashing, but close and competitive racing. Awesome! Here’s the video of most of my highlights. Most, since ACC can only save 60 minutes of video and this race was a whopping 90 minutes long! For more information, you can go to MrGit’s website or follow him on Twitch.tv!

Design: Porsche 991 GT3 “Pink Pig”

After creating the Ferrari 488 GT3 I felt like doing more cars from the Blancpain field this way. One of the first to spring to mind was the Porsche, because of its iconic shape that hasn’t changed much over the past 50 odd years. Long did I doubt about the color to upload this in. First, I wanted to do an acid green color to resemble the Manthey Porsches. Ultimately, it was suggested I go with the iconic Pink Pig design which was used for Porsche’s 917/20 in the 70s....

Design: Ferrari 488 GT3

Playing Assetto Corsa Competizione has given me inspiration to convert some of the cars into artwork, starting with Ferrari’s aggressive looking 488 GT3. I’ve uploaded the design to Redbubble, mainly because I myself am going to the Blancpain GT3 races at Zandvoort the 14th of July, and I wanted to wear a shirt based on this design. If you fancy this design yourself, feel free to click on the link below! Ferrari 488 GT3 Racing on Redbubble The shirt has arrived, and it is looking mighty good, Excuse the crappy...

Design: Assetto Corsa Competizione Alt. Logo

When Assetto Corsa Competizione (ACC) was first announced, I was just experiencing my first Assetto Corsa ‘high’. I was a bit late to the party. However, I thought that AC1 lacked a bit of focus. ACC promises to be about GT3 cars, and GT3 only – featuring the Blancpain GT-series. This prompted some inspiration, so I created this ACC logo; Assetto Corsa Competizione can be purchased HERE on Steam. I highly recommend you doing so. I might do a review later.
