German F1 TV-Reporter is testing Formula 1 Simulator (Running AC)

  1. Hi,
    I just wanted to show you this:
    http://www.tvnow.de/rtl/formel-1/freies-training-gp-von-spanien/player

    Min: 2:35

    The german TV-Reporter and DTM Driver Timo Glock is testing a formula 1 simulator and explaining the track. And what makes me stunning the most is: It is running Assetto Corsa. You can clearly see the KUNOS Cat Logo at 3:00.

    Anyone know what car he`s driving? Maybe we can expect a 2017 F1 car from Kunos? What do you think about the video? Is AC now proven by the Formula 1 the most realistic sim, or why are they using AC?

    The site just displays a blue background for me, I'm in Austria.

    Edit: Seems to be the firewall at work that blocks the connection.

    Yeah, it's geolocation dependant if you're able to see it or not. But, the video indeed shows the Kunos Simulazioni banner on the Barcelona GP track. :) Also wonder what car it is, as Time Glock talks about the "2017 cars" behaving like that, so, it's obviously one of the 2017 cars modelled, maybe a Ferrari? Kunos also do driving simulators for real life motorsport treams, don't they?

  8. So I tried to take some screenshots but it seems to have a blocker against that. Sorry guys. I think the easiest way is to browse the page with a german IP (with a browser - plugin)

    Yep. Likely Assetto Corsa Pro (clearly Kunos logo on some textures and it looks very much like the SF70H with the latest cockpit design (mirrors with the recent struts design for example). And likely since Kunos already supply simulators to Ferrari for marketing they can also offer these semi-mobile simulators for driver training when the guys are on race weekend. Very cool find, thanks.

    Seems to resemble the 2017 car. Hard to tell. The car model isn't really important in that view, typically you'd only see tyres. The sim rig itself is definitely older. Kunos logo:

    I'd imagine it's some marketing rig they use in a corporate capacity. I can't believe the drivers would want to switch between car and sim during the weekend.

    Still interesting though and demonstrates there's other stuff going on at Kunos beyond the retail products we see.

    The new FOM is bringing simulators to the races for fans to drive as one of their moves to make things more attractive to said fans.
    Is this it? If so what a coup for Kunos Simulazioni!!! Can we dream of an oficial F1 title?

    I can't watch it because i'm in Brazil.

    As for the car it seems more generic than the SF70-H, thus far Kunos has been against bringing generic cars to the consumer version of AC so it's unlikely any of us will drive it at our homes... we'll have to wait until Ferrari gives the greenlight ;)

    Im curious to what the actual difference is between the professional simulator Kunos make and the amateur one that we bought.

    Its possible its similar code but with a different license so can be used for commercial purposes as the retail version we have isnt.

    iirc, one difference is that the physics are calculated on a separate computer.

    I've read that the top teams use their own physics.

    I suppose they can throw all the computing power they need at it.

    Yeah, it's most likely that the Pro version of AC is much more modifiable, so that the teams can test different scenarios etc.

    Ferrari need to practice more at driving at night, preferebly in rain, so they can be more safe on track. Can someone tell them that?

    It wasn't like that for the Honda Green hell challenge rig which used AC Pro (unless a really small 2nd pc hidden somewhere)
