2021 Virtual Simola Hillclimb – download available now!

KNYSNA, South Africa, 17 March 2021

The highly anticipated Virtual Simola Hillclimb is now available for download for Assetto Corsa (PC platform only).

Following the announcement of the first Virtual Simola Hillclimb last week over 135 players have already registered to take part in the event, which kicks off on Monday 22 March.

The Virtual Simola Hillclimb starts with the opening round on Monday 22 March running through to Saturday 27 March. Round two is from Monday 29 March to 3 April. Round three will run from 5 – 10 April, and Round Four – the final qualifying round, from 12 – 17 April.

The scores from all four rounds will produce the Top Ten competitors qualifying for the finals on 8 and 9 May and the winner after those two days of competition will be crowned the Virtual King of the Hill that Sunday evening.

For players who do not have Assetto Corsa (please note NOT the Competizione version) on their computers, you will need to download the platform at a cost of R130.

Once the game is downloaded, and for those that already have it, the track is an add-on to the platform and must be downloaded here. The download contains a “Read me” file with all the instructions to install the track in Assetto Corsa. There is no charge to download the track.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to the high demand for Virtual Simola Hillclimb downloads we encountered some problems yesterday. Our sincere apologies. Please use this NEW LINK for the download.

More information on the detailed workings of the competition will be released before the start date.

Updated information will be posted on our new gamers Discord channel and on our social media channels as follows:
