Cognac Airfield - Base Aerienne

REAL TRACK

Track Location : Cognac, France.

Track Type : Airfield
Track Lenght : 4.88 kms. - 3.03 mil.
Track Num. Turns : 9
Track Year : 195?-196?

Track Editor :

Sergio Loro : track layout,altitudes,surfaces,3do placement,some mips, some 3dos, AI and Camera files.

Track Cover : John Bradley  -- http://www.trilon.com/bapom/ (thanks john!!!)

also contributte: Ginetto (thanks for the fixs!!!)


Note I : I used a few mips, 3dos and srb files from others tracks, the full credit its for their authors.        

Note II : i try to build the track accurate as possible, both in layout and enviroment, all the buildings i place around the track was present back on 1967, i try to place the objects as the real thing, from my modest point of view track is very similar to the real thing.

Cognac Airfield
---------------
a friend (normhart at rsc) let me know about this track, he found good footage and i decide build it, since i love airfield track.
looks like the track was really interesting, long straights, nice turns after start line and a nice enviroment.
it was used for the "1964 Tour de France" and for some F.Junior raced back on 1964, i did not search if track was use in other years, but i suppost it was active at least in the 60's.

This is great again!
Looks very good (no addon work for Reddog here   :oops: )
It took me a several laps to get it right.
The hay stack's and the pit entry made me puzzeling a while,
but after I took the hay out of my car and hair, the drive was great.

See it in the TotalRank soon :yeah:
And keep up this good work. :drunk:

Hi Sergio !

Thanks for the track.    :clap2: :)
I download it and install it. Unlucky, i must reduce the "oversized" mips to max. 256x256 for my old crap Voodoo5500. I see one file named "flgpole.mip" with too many subimages. I hope it makes no  problems for others ?

But no problem for me. It during a hour with WINMIP2 to do the work, then i can test your newest creation.

But no time now, i have in 30 Mins. a league-race in Zandvoort.  Testing later.

Thanks for all.  :thumbup:

Greetings

Achim

Hi  Sergio !

After a bit of work on mips (and ending my league-race as 3rd with flag) i make a quick test.

It runs fine and i can only repeat what Tommi say:

what a wonderful track!!!
Thanks very much sergio



Thanks for this very nice track.  :)
