Presenting our Test Drive of the new 2015 Porsche 919 Hybrid LMP1 car in Assetto Corsa. The recently released Volume II Porsche DLC pack for Assetto Corsa brought nine new cars to the title – PC only as of right now – but only one of them looks like an alien spacecraft, the 919. Fresh off it’s overall win of the 2015 24 Hours of Le Mans, the 2015 Porsche 919 marks one of the bigger licensing gets in sim racing today, not only bringing an LMP1 car to a sim title, but one with pedigree.
Which brings us to Silverstone for a five lap race against 14 other 919’s…cause there’s really nothing else for it to race against in Assetto Corsa, well, at least until this mystical Toyota TS040 Hybrid shows up.
And for a little more fun, John cranked the graphics up on his GTX 1070, ran in VR (an experience getting better and better thanks to new Nvidia drivers and prescription VR lenses), and captured in 2560 x 1080 so you can see for yourself just how hard it is to see out of these LMP1’s!
And yes, this is the correct centered head position, you really sit that low and have that much tunnel vision.
