Whaaaaat... and I spent hours 'distressing' the large and light grey/beige FINA kites to try and get them all to match up with each other! Haha, seriously though glad you like my work sky.
Yes I had the choice to make the billboard very clean and so more high res, but looking at all the photos of the billboards that I can, it seems they weren't always of the best quality. I guess maybe this was because the boards were used so much with many changing posters each year and at most perhaps a period of 3 years for a few. Anyway I'm trying to keep all the billboards I'm making matching each other for tone and resolution/balance so they won't look silly if placed next to each other!
but here you can see the bmp after I added my vector graphics and some dust and dirt to the billboard but before I distressed the kites for some irregualrity.

And I think it's "route" rather than "nuit"

Yes, I did check 'nuit' in the dictionary and saw there was no 'e' but because I couldn't think what else it might be I thought heck it's got 'la' in front of it I'm going to add an 'e'! Haha, no seriously I thought perhaps in a certain tense it may have an 'e', clearly not! Thanks for correcting me, 'route' of course makes perfect sense, luckily it wasn't too difficult to change this time. I also discovered a better finish to the board which I think makes the colours match the original photo better and corrected some detail on the headlight I'd missed and sharpened up the figure in the light giving him a little more detail also. I have posted the updated one here and removed my one from the post above.
Thanks again for your help
EDIT I have started a new thread on the spa billboards and moved the all the photos & files there.

What do our GPL developers think of their effort? It looks pretty good to me!

Btw, did anyone see the first renders of that new community-based sim project by Slightly Mad Studios (from 'Shift') featuring a Lotus 49 (this should be enough to prick up any GPL driver's ears)? Looks awesome, must say. Well, in terms of model renders, at least.
If they're willing to pander to the classic car loving audience and their physics engine is adaptable enough, this could be like the old floated-on-Racesimcentral-idea of "if they'd buy the code to GPL and developed it into a GPL2, I'd gladly help pay for the development"!

here are some screenshoots... spa67 thread...

Judging from this excellent footage I think the track was laid out as seen in this pic.
Well, taking this thread waaaay back to page 1 and page 5, I'd have to say yes Hitman, your overlay onto Google showing the old track route must be right. I'm excited as heck about trying out the new old Spa for GPL but what led me to this thread was my desire to figure out what of the old track still exits around Malmady leading onto the Masta straight. And that's because I'M GOING THERE IN 2 WEEKS for the race! Hot damn, I am so excited! I'm as excited about driving the old circuit as I am about seeing the race.
My agreement with Hitman's routing comes after doing a ton of video research, mainly studying Grand Prix movie but also looking a many of the great links provided in this thread. My key piece of evidence is the railroad tracks that are clearly seen in the old footage running right along side the racetrack as soon as it spills out onto the straight. The Google Maps picture clearly shows the tracks (or the remnants) running right along the modern road that passes under the complex intersection for the A27. And Christian's locals told him the old track road was still there.
I'm hoping to find remains of the short wall on the left that we fly by in the sim just after getting onto the straight. The Grand Prix movie actually shows two walls. One that comes up quickly and one a couple hundred yards farther down almost to the house on the left. That distant one stands a better chance of still existing and I think I see a shadow of it in Google map.
Oh yeah, the trip is going to include a few days in Paris so my plans are to drive a rental car up to Rouen and run around that one too. The Arch de Triumph? The Louvre? I want REAL history!

oh and enjoy paris. it's in my top 5 cities in the world, at #1 i think with london, new york and tokyo not far behind

I wish I could help you out but my trip through that region from Spa to Paris will be by train. And my day trip out of Paris by rental car will go in the opposite direction, taking in the Normandy region.
I did look at Google Earth to see just where the old Reims circuit was. And from looking at that, as I'm sure you have, it looks like it's 90% farm fields except where it run past the small town of Gueux.
This website mentions a local preservation society who is now restoring and maintaining the old race related buildings. I'll bet someone in that group would be happy to help you out.

We have that already but don't stop looking for anything that might be useful
