This upcoming sim has me more excited than the others, as its from the maker of netKar PRO (Kunos Simulazioni).
"Assetto Corsa is a new PC-based racing game for Windows, expected to be released in 2012. Assetto Corsa is being designed to provide a very realistic driving experience, with single player and multiplayer options, officially licensed cars and tracks developed using Laser scan technology, and the highest level of accuracy possible in reproducing real world motor racing environments.
Also, Assetto Corsa will allow for considerable customisation and modification, in order to satisfy the expectations of professional simracers, gamers who prefer to approach the driving experience more progressively, and hobbyists who just like to collect lots of cars and tracks"
This really is heading towards being an RF2 killer. netKar PRO (its younger brother) already has the best tyre simulation I have ever driven, this is lookign to take it all further!
It is still in development, all vids below are just a look of how its going so far. And I should add "Listen to them in the videos, they are all Italian, you know they will be at least passionate about it! "
I already feel like I'm the only **** that plays netKar but I love it, hopefully this will continue the awesome tradition and get some more players into the mix.
Oh I am a big fan of netKar. I have driven most racing sims, and for me nKPro has the best driving feel of them all, combined with true sim features like clickable cockpits and visual tyre wear.
Sadly it is the kind of sim that you need to be in a community for, if you ever want to race online with it, as it is dead otherwise and that was mainly due to a buggy past with netcode which is now greatly improved. I mainly drive it offline from time to time still.
Looking forward to this one myself too, the only nKPro based sim I've ever driven was Ferrari Virtual Academy but I too believe it's the most accurate driving engine out there, and if you haven't given FVA a go, check it out, really really good.

Should be able to grab nkpro demo off the files section here, is only around 400mb. Will give you a chance to try out the Formula Ford style car in the demo, is fun trying to keep that thing pointing where you want it.
Ha! Yes it is a bit like that I think getting the Ferrari license has probably made them hold back the demo release dates, as now they really have some awesome things to release. Is all looking pretty sweet
