Mazda Celebrates 100 Years

Mazda Celebrates 100 Years

30 January, Mazda celebrated a hole century of car engineering. The car company from Hiroshima that made the rotary-powered RX-7, the amazing MX-5 and also accomplished a win at Le Mans 24-hours. Has turned 100 years.

And we almost missed it.

All Mazda did to celebrate his 100 year anniversary was to send out a press release with a comment from president Akira Marumoto and launched a video on social media. They make a big celebration, to which they will invite global media and thousands of fans. This will take place in Hiroshima in late May.

Since the company was founded on the 30th January 1920, they continuously challenged conventions. They constantly rethink car design and engineering.

Hopefully, they will make cars for another 100 years.

LA Canyons first drive

LA Canyons first drive

After years of playing Arcade driving games like The Crew and The Crew 2. Driving in Assetto Corsa is a real challenge for me. I am happy I managed to do a full lap on the new LA Canyons 1.2 Map without crashing to much.

To make things harder I chose Pro settings without any driving aid.

You can download the map here: https://www.racedepartment.com/downloads/la-canyons.15067/

I only have the light version of the Assetto Corsa Launcher which dos not support Mods. So I had to copy the Map into the tracks folder myself.

Here is the video of my lap.

There will also be a paid version of the map with an area of approx. 900kmĀ², and 115km of highways and side roads to explore. The two way traffic is also part of the paid version.

Assetto Corsa Shuto Revival Project first drive

Assetto Corsa Shuto Revival Project first drive

After I got Assetto Corsa Ultimate Edition for less then 10 bugs. I did a lot of installing. For example I installed the Content Manager with the Sol mod and this map I’m driving on. The Shuto Revival Project. I started up the game and gave it a try. Which did not end well, I’m afraid. But see for your self.

There is also some issue with the trees glowing like crazy.

Please leave a comment if you have a solution.

Simagic M10 Direct Drive & GT1/GT4 Wheel Review

Simagic is a Chinese brand that’s recently exploded on to the Sim Racing scene and gained a lot of attention by offering the cheapest available Direct Drive Wheelbase we’ve seen so far. But they’ve actually been quietly developing and selling their product in China since mid-2018, so they’re not exactly inexperienced when it comes to building sim racing gear.
