Adding to the formula content for Assetto Corsa, Race Sim Studio have announced their “Formula 79”. Based on the Lotus 79, this is a great addition to the sim. The Lotus 79 enjoys a cult following on iRacing and we think it will prove popular on Assetto Corsa
Powered by the iconic Ford-Cosworth DFV V8 and enjoying the benefit of side skirts, enjoying ground effect technology, this is an all time classic. Huge grip and huge power.
The real car was driven by Mario Andretti and Ronnie Peterson, among others. Winning the 1978 F1 constructors and drivers championship, at the hand of Mario Andretti the vehicle enjoyed 26 races, 10 wins, 15 podiums, 10 poles and 5 fastest laps.
As you can see from the pictures below, the modelling looks superb. Judging by the quality of their Formula Hybrid, we’re sure race sim studio will do a good job of the rest of their formula content for Assetto Corsa.
