I'm very pleased to announce the release of the Autódromo Oscar Cabalén (1998 version), Alta Gracia, Córdoba, Argentina, originally done by Juha Hallikainen and finished by myself with the aid of several REAL and GPL drivers
Especially I want to thank Oreste Berta (h), which is the son of the great "Mago de Alta Gracia", Oreste Berta Sr. He's something like "our Colin Chapman" here in Argentina and made real history in the Argentinian motor racing but projected also internationally (https://es.wikipedia...ki/Oreste_Berta)
Oreste (h), through our GPL-er friend Daniel Demarchi, gave us valious advice to complete the track, which was a honour, especially for me (Marcos), the Argentinian of the team.
Thanks a lot to many devoted track makers, as Ginetto and Pablo Fernandez, which gave me a lot of help during the learning of GPL-track building
I hope to see many of you racing online at this track!!
Cheers, Marcos Mirande

History of the GPL-Version of the A. Oscar Cabalén
This track was done in a 90% by Juha Hallikainen. It had only some clipping, some issues with the layout here and there and had much flatter corners than actually are, especially T1, T2, and the exit of "La Chicana". With the help of professional racers and/or team managers (Berta, Humbert and Brusaferri) we could fix those issues before releasing the track. THANKS!
History of Autódromo Oscar Cabalén
The Autódromo Oscar Cabalén was inaugurated in 1968 in Alta Gracia, near Cordoba City, Córdoba, Argentina. This is, indeed, a famous venue in Argentina, hosting many local categories.
It had several layouts, being the original, from 1968, a high speed "perimetral" one, which is not in use anymore because it was considered too dangerous for real racing... but actually not that dangerous for GPL-racing (so... who knows... maybe we could do it in some future).
The version of the track herein recreated was inaugurated in 1998 for the Turismo Carretera (TC), the main tourism category in Argentina.
