This track for Grand Prix Legends represents the Goodwood Motor Circuit in 1965 which was the last year Formula One visited Goodwood before the track closed in 1966.
As a bonus a representation of Goodwood in 1955 is included.
Using period photographs and historic video combined with earth mapping data, we have tried to create the feel and atmosphere of Goodwood Motor Circuit in 1965 and 1955.
To do this we made : - track layout with accurate elevations - track buildings and other objects - advertisements of the period - a portrayal of the surrounding area.
How it works -
Using the 1965mod you will see and drive the track as it was for the 1965 non championship race meeting for Formula One cars held at Easter 1965. The day was overcast with cloudy skies.
Using the 1955mod you will see and drive the track as it was for the 1955 non championship race meeting for Formula One cars held at Easter 1955. That day was also overcast with cloudy skies.
Using any other GPL mod you will see and drive the track in 1965 with clear skies and summer vegetation as it was for the Sports Car events held in September.

Notes that started the track development thread on 15 July 2018, which has today 196 pages with #4878 posts:
greg - We will be making some updates to the beautiful Goodwood track made by GPLEA in 2001 and enhanced by Jackseller in 2004.
greg - First, I will re-post the private messages that have gone between Denis (Db312) and myself over the past few months.
This forum is a better place for track update development, as we can hopefully receive more input.
greg - Ginetto's work is what I started with for the '65 version, along with Denis. The gaps in the off-track grass fringe is very obvious, but can be made to look very good if they can be added back in.
greg - I was going to wait until Paul had completed work on his absolutely gorgeous new horizon/sky for Goodwood .... but, I can't get enough of driving it now!!
stefan - Paul is back editing.
ginetto - FWIW I am making build files of this track to let you guys work in every direction.
