Assetto Corsa Competizione 2023 GT World Challenge DLC Available April 19, Adds Circuit Ricardo Tormo

After teasing some of its updated 2023 content over recent weeks, Kunos Simulazioni has whipped the covers off the next DLC pack coming to Assetto Corsa Competizione: the 2023 GT World Challenge Pack.

Arriving on April 19 on Steam, the update will bring with it three new cars and — revealed today — a new circuit in the shape of the Circuit Ricardo Tormo, also known as the Circuit de Valencia.

Not to be confused with the former F1 venue of the Valencia Street Circuit, Circuit de Valencia is a purpose-built autodrome dating back to 1999. Created primarily as a motorbike circuit, the track has hosted F1 testing, Formula E, DTM, and World Touring Car races, with numerous configurations available.

Of course, given its arrival in ACC, it also stages a round of the GT World Challenge Europe Sprint Series, having been added to the roster in 2021. When it becomes available next week, it will mean ACC has four of the five circuits on this year’s calendar, with only Hockenheim absent.

The new cars coming to the pack have previously been revealed, with the 2023-season versions of the Lamborghini Huracan GT3 Evo2 and Porsche 911 GT3 R joining the all-new Ferrari 296 GT3. All three cars were also part of a special presentation back in July 2022, so we’ve been anticipating them for a little while!

Also included in that presentation was mention of the inclusion of the GT2 series within ACC, but there’s still no official word on a timeline for the six cars — or any accompanying circuits — to come to the game.

The April 19 date for the 2023 GT World Challenge Pack applies only to the PC version of the game via Steam, with a price yet to be announced but we’d expect to be within the same $10-$15 range as other car and track DLC packs. PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series owners may have to wait a while for the content to make its way to them…
