6. Assetto Corsa Hotlap & RaceUpdate notes

Hotlaps are very simple - just beat the time the game has set for you.

The car you’ll want to select will be the McLaren P1 and the track you’ll want to select will be the Nordschleife. This is quite a long lap and can be easy to crash at, so make sure your damage is set to off. As you're travelling down the back straight, you’ll easily be at over 300 Km/h, as such you will unlock:

300!

Just a few corners later will be the start/finish line and the end of the lap. My understanding is that your lap doesn’t even need to be clean to unlock this achievement, so simply complete a lap and you’ll unlock the following:

I completed my first clean lap in 6 minutes 50 seconds, so there is plenty of time on the table, even if you are struggling. If you were fast enough you will unlock:

Now onto the final type of mode which is race.

Again, this is a very simple and self-explanatory mode. You need to achieve the position by the end of the race that the game sets out for you - usually winning.

Select race weekend and your track as Brands Hatch Indy and select the Mazda Miata NA (you can select another car if you wish, but this will be the one I will be using for the purposes of this guide). Change the practice session to 0 minutes and the qualifying session to 10 minutes. Opponent level should still be at Very Easy, aggression at 0%, 1 opponent. Set the race duration to 1 lap. Press continue. Put the mechanical damage to 100% and press start. Take out the fuel from your car if you wish and change your tyres to Street Tyres (not Street 90s) for the Mazda, or the softest and most grippy tyre if you're driving another car. There’s no need to change anything else on the setup.

Head out of the pit lane and onto the track and drive. With a 10 minute session and each lap taking just over 1 minute, you should be able to get 5 clean laps in, awarding you:

When I completed this the AI managed a 1:05.9, whereas I was over 4 seconds faster, so this shouldn’t be too difficult to beat them. Once the qualifying session is over and assuming you have out qualified the AI, you will unlock:

Real Racer

First pole position
