I thought i'd install the Can Am tracks to get used to driving them. Is this list right for the mod/season?

This was the interim 2.428 mile track layout that was used in '71.  The following year they added the "boot" section with a track length of 3.377 miles.

There is what he describes as a "Late Beta : Watkins Glen CanAm 1971".  Builder is smogbike.

Do you mean that there is a newer version of this track than that which was made by Lee Gaunt, which was released in February 2005?


BTW, Road Atlanta is a converted track, also.

Pretty sure GPL Road Atlanta is Dave Noonan original, not a conversion.

Yes, and the 71Glen is with the boot, the right track is not more than in alfa stage, so we selected the original Glen. And there is a new Donny coming... :D

No.... it is not.  The '71 Glen was 2.482 miles long and this track layout:
(Wikipedia is not always the 'truth'.  Look a little more deeply for the actual track that was raced on in '71)

*******************

The Road Atlanta track is composed of over 300 individual 3do files.  Do you really think that Noonan created that from scratch back in 2000?  Don't think so.  It was a conversion.

Will the new Donnybrooke be released before the mod, or should we install the old one for now?

Road America is a real eye sore. Even with one upgrade I tried. Anybody make a good update?

Interesting comparing some of these tracks to iRacing versions.

Pete, the Road America (Elkhart Lake) track is not a finished track by any means.  There are no 'good' updates for it.  Smogbike started a new version... but left it unfinished, also.

It's pretty sad looking. Maybe a better looking sky would help? What can I use? I like cloudy dark skies.

Smoggy's version is with the boot so that's why we preferred the 67 version :)

Well, this one isn't dark... but better than most.  Give it a try.

You're welcome, Pete.  Concerning Donnybrooke.... I'm not sure, since I don't know how much is being changed or when it may be released.
