Thank you very much Svenvangent. Could you tell me please if this installer needs those corrections in season.ini file either? And BTW, are there any problems with this track since it's beta?

The installers usually change the season ini for you unless you uncheck a box, not sure if this is the same though but I assume it is, also, the track is great and I haven't had any problems with it, you will realise it really shouldn't be called a beta once you do a few laps.

The track looks great and it's fun to drive but lacks a starter and all other flagmen. Please correct me if I missed a patch or a newer beta.

Thank you both for your replies. I'm pretty sure this track is going to be one of first I'll add to GPL.

Have only just found Donnington 1937 and it is great - like a very fast drive through beautiful English countryside without having to worry about speed cameras! . A very belated thanks.

There is no starting Flagman for this great track.  Did I miss a fix for this?

Nope, beta = unfinished.
Hence the lack of flagmen.

Hi Richard (Luna)

I hope you are fine.
Is there any chance for a final version of this great track?

Regards
Stefan

I would love this track to get the finishing touches it deserves.
It is awesome already, one of my favourites actually, but it would be even better if we could race on it too

Not cheap, but a very nice book published by Silverfox on the pre-war history of Donington Park.  Lots of photos and maps (and a gradient cross section).

This is effectively one of the greatest tracks of GPL...

I sincerely hope that someone who have the knowledge can dedicate a little bit of his time to add a flagman for the start...

I cross my fingers... ^_^

Yes I do have a copy, so if you have any questions on it's content......

Donington is local to me.  Friends of mine also marshal there regularly so I go quite often.

Over the past year or so I've taken to updating the outdated Racing Circuits Database over at the Fastlane, so my interest is in the trackmaps found in the book. I noticed some nice ones on the few preview pages when the book came out a month or two back and made a mental note for the time I got to Donington. I'd love to get my hands on some high res scans of the maps as a base for the layouts.

You need to try with one of the following tools
The Racing Line
or
GPL Wall Changer

and add the starter 3DO in the position you want.

I never tried myself so cannot help much but I guess it is a trial and error process if you follow the tutorials.
