Assetto Corsa ‘Ready To Race’ Car Pack Out Now For PC

Assetto Corsa

Assetto Corsa – Are You ‘Ready To Race’

The new Assetto Corsa ‘Ready To Race’ car pack is now available to purchase on Steam for the PC.

As you might expect with a title like that, this newest ten car DLC has a strong focus on those that have taken part in, and even won, their respective championships. Taking up their grid positions within the list are multiple entries from Audi, McLaren and Toyota, together with single contributions from Lotus and Maserati.

The team at Kunos have shown that they know their stuff when it comes to stacking automotive content into these packs and it is clear from what’s included that ‘RTR’ is no different. With the stand outs of this pack in my view being the the rally Toyota Celica ST185 Turbo, which sports that unmistakable Castrol livery, and the Maserati MC12 GT1, which in my opinion is a better looking Enzo. However I do expect a large majority of players to gravitate towards the more modern Le Mans racecars and the road-going McLaren 570S.

I certainly would say to players though to have a wee go around ‘Highlands’ in the Lotus 3-Eleven, as if ever there was a car and track made for each other, that would be it. (no need to worry about the rain either!)

Assetto Corsa – Ready To Race Car List

  • Audi R8 LMS 2016
  • Audi R18 e-tron quattro 2014
  • Audi TT Cup 2016
  • Audi TT RS VLN
  • Lotus 3-Eleven
  • Maserati MC12 GT1
  • McLaren 570S
  • McLaren P1 GTR
  • Toyota Celica ST185 Turbo
  • Toyota TS040 Hybrid

Console owners of the game will also see ‘RTR’ come to them but with no time specified except for “in the near future”, it’s almost a given that a decent wait will be required. Thankfully this should be made much more tolerable due to the recent release of the v1.14 update that also brought along with it, a nice amount of free bonus content.

An accompanying update with this pack’s release brings the PC version of the game up to this version too, with v1.14 for PC deploying a large amount of fixes and advances to further improve the title.

Diablo is a total muppet, a bit insane and an absolutely awful writer as you have no doubt come to find. However he is passionate in what he does, likes to have a laugh and is always willing to learn new things… which he will then end up doing wrong. A real genius he most definitely is not!
