Yes, it was very strange here. The installer also asked me to install the replay for the current WR at time of the release, and I accepted. But it installed me the WR for St Jovite! And on the screen for choosing a track, where it should be the Bridgehampton program cover, it appears St. Jovite's cover, but then it doesn't allow me for load the track. I was only able to join when I put the gfx update.
What I don't understand is how could I get wrong files, when I downloaded .rar file named bhampton, unrared it to a single folder and installed it from there! I installed almost all add-on tracks I have in that way
This is a presumption: After thinking about it, I assume from others' comments over the years, that bhampton was not in fact installed properly. It has happened before (not necessarily on this track but certainly in others) that the dat has been inserted but not named "bhampton.dat" but just plain "dat" with no extension. (Check the folder to see if there is a file named just dat) When you added the addon, that includes a new bhampton.dat that would have asked to overwrite if there had been one already in the folder. I would surmise from your description that either St Jovite was the last track you previously installed or that you placed Bridgehampton under St Jovite with the Season Manager.
I will try to cover the holes of my first explanation about what happened to me
I installed Bridgehampton, and the folder had the common 9 files, with the bhampton.DAT (yes, it had the extension) included. Now, that .dat file had EXACTLY the same size as stjovite.DAT file in stjovite folder (10,895 KB), the track.ini file inside bhampton folder has the configuration of St Jovite, the replay I got from the Bridgehampton installer is for St Jovite, when I cycle through program covers for selecting the track, where Bridgehampton should be it appears St Jovite cover again (and it was not the previous track I installed, I have 6-7 tracks installed in between), and when I try to load the "second St. Jovite" it throws an error and cancels it.
That is, before I put the update that REPLACED my bhampton.dat of 10,895 KB with another one of 21,536 KB, and added tons of stuff. With the update, I see the real program cover on the track selection menu, I can load it perfectly, but the car is put at the left side of the S/F straight (as St.Jovite, on Bridgehampton pits are in the right side of the main straight).
I propose you the following: can I upload the bhampton.rar I downloaded and give you in a PM the link? So you can see what I'm seeing
