--------------------------------------
Historical Note:

During 1954 – 1966, the Nassau Speed Weeks were a high-octane end of season ‘play-off’
in the sun between Americans and Europeans – serious racing and even more serious partying!
1966 was to see the last of the Speed Weeks for the time being.
The World and Motor Sport were changing rapidly and the racing season was extended
throughout the winter months in many countries.

--------------------------------------
Install:

The installer is packed in 2 separate 7z files; you need the open source 7zip program to extract it.

Included in the installer is a zip with files for a 1965 variation in adverts and program cover, you will find it in your Nassau folder once the track is installed.

In a separate file here you find a type 7 (32 bits) version of the Horizon made by Remy; you can extract the files into your Nassau folder if you want to use it. Remember that you need v2 rasterisers with 32 bits option checked to be able to admire its beauty.

Thanks Ginetto and Remy! :up: :bravo:

EDIT: Is anyone working on a Bahamas flag (bahflg.pbf) for the best laps screen? I'll start work on one anyway, shouldn't take long.

EDIT 2: Done! Unzip the file "Bahflg.pbf" into your \GPL\layout folder and the Bahamas flag will show up in the "best laps" list. (If this flag is
incorrect for some reason, please let me know what's wrong and I will fix it.)

EDIT 3: Aha! Ginetto has done a historically accurate flag (mine was hysterically inaccurate :D ) and this is now included in post #1. Thanks Ginetto! :clap2:

Thanks to all involved making this stunning track, especially Remy and Ginetto!

I'm so impressed with the visual detail in this track, it's a real piece of art. Track is very wide, and the characteristic should be great for close racing! No sticky fences, and the extra horizon files are a bonus (for those who suffer from sky banding).

GPL is getting better and better all the time :)

Happy holidays and a happy new year!
