Assetto Corsa Suzuka Circuit, Japan.

Suzuka Circuit in Japan | Assetto Corsa

I found the downloadable track with a quick Google search here on Assetto Corsa Club. It is a really well done mod. The graphics and textures are very realistic. I haven’t tried the AI out yet in a race, but will have to soon.

The track turned out to be a little more technical than I anticipated. I had a lot of problems the first few laps. I still haven’t mastered the track by any means, but after 10 or so laps I could finally keep at least two tires on the track at all times. It’s a very deceptively fast track. The track seems a lot faster than it is. Right when you get settled into a nice long swooping straight it throws a quick corner at you. No sleeping on this track!


It reminds me a lot of Imola. Very fast track technical, but not overly technical. To me, a very technical course is a street circuit like Monaco or Baka. They have a lot of tight corners and not a lot of space to stretch your legs. I don’t fair to well on those courses. Although, this track from Monaco 1966 is one of my all time favorites.

Time to write about new favorite sport and hobby. The last time I had a hobby outside of photography was 14 to 15 years ago. I drove a Budweiser beer truck and I collected beer steins and Royal Doulton heads. I had a shit ton of beer steins. A lot of Budweiser ones of course. The most memorable ones were the Budman steins. Very cool! I couldn’t afford too many Royal Doultons, but I think I had at least two.

Other than trying to learn website skills and graphic design skills I haven’t done much outside of photography on my own. I’ve been a real estate photographer for nine years now. Before that I was a graphic designer for five years. That entire time I didn’t do much relaxing that didn’t involve a camera or a monitor. Last year was a very slow travel year for us. We usually do at least three to four weekend trips and several day trips. We did a few weekenders, but that was about it. I didn’t have any photos to edit and I started to get burned out on doing WordPress websites.
