Triple7Racing is proudly releasing the BTCC T7R Car Mod for Assetto Corsa.

Check out our mini website for full credits, info and download links

Bringing the fast, fun, close, door to door racing of the FWD and RWD of the pinnacle of British Motorsport.

The cars that are available are the Ford Focus ST, Honda Civic Type R, Toyota Avensis and the BMW 125i M Sport. The Physics have been completely re-done using real data that is available online, and also with Fordman attending Official tyre tests. Sounds have been re-done using BTCC reference videos by Fordman and IMrIMike.

Also included are all the 2016 Liveries for the Honda, Ford, BMW and Toyota including Honda Yuasa Racing, Motorbase Performance, Speedworks and West Surry Racing.

We have opened up all the setup options (except ride height) so you can adjust the cars to how you feel/want to drive them, as all the options that are available, are available in real life. You cannot change Turbo Boost, as this is restricted to 0.8 in real life.

This is our first Multi Car Mod, and we have thoroughly enjoyed working on this, and we hope you enjoy it just as much with all the close racing it will bring.

Triple7Racing will be providing two public servers running Brands Hatch GP and Silverstone National, and we hope to see you online.

Is the fuel consumption really that high?

Almost 3 ltr. per lap at Brands in the BMW seems a lot for those cars.

That's in range of Aussie V8 supercars with 650 bhp :shock:

Something we may have missed, but.......

Brilliant, thanks J3FF as little things like this really help to improve what we have done. Please keep these suggestions coming, as we really appreciate all the feedback

The Focus is very twitchy.

Not sure how much focus (ha ha!) you guys put on the default setup.
Surely, every racer would make adjustments but many many ppl of course just wanna jump into a car and play. :!:

So the Focus loses its rear very easily. Yes, a bit of opposite lock catches that but the car by then already slid quite a lot which in turn means extremely high tire temps on the contact patch. Not necessarily core temps though but the high outside temps should mean a pretty heavy wear over a short period of time. Otherwise very very nice. :D

Ahhh the FWDs are all like that :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Try raising the Rear ARB, and or the Rear Wheel rate to stiffen the rear end up.

What we was hoping, and you are doing this, is that with this first release, other's will come back with feedback, and we can adjust.

We seriously appreciate all comments, and thank you for giving us your feedback to further improve this
