Another track that could be in the list is this:

http://www.nogriprac...hp?filenr=11050

Interlagos 1979. It´s the old track with its 8km as it was before being defaced for modern F1. It has curbs, something not existing in the 60s, and also the pit exit is like it is now, while in the past it was right on the main straight, before Turn 1. But its a great track, fun to drive, all kind of curves and no chicanes! (:

Thanks Overtake and welcome to the forums.  I've corrected Silver 79 to show the esport link.

I agree with you on the old GPL tracks and I wish we had more of them.  It's not a bunch of work to do a rough conversion, but to get a GPL track up to anywhere near GTR2 standards, it takes  a lot of time and effort.  There are some rFactor converts of Monaco 67 and Monza 67, but they're pretty rough.  
cheers,
steve  :wave:

I think a good addition would be Lienz24h. It's a very demanding and dangerous track located in the Austrian Alps with serpentines and lots of up and downhill sections. 5.07 miles long.
And one of the best grafics in GTR2.

Not a real track but if you fancy a hillclimb with steep cliffs :). Timing works on 'Rally':

It's too bad that GTR2 engine makes usually so lousy simulation of those stone surfaces.  It just feels like it's just a skin painted over tarmac. I bet if you tried to "edit" the track (inch by inch) to simulate "Roman roads" it would result in an unplayable track (too big? too fps-heavy?). Pity.

Col de Joux may not be a *period* track.  But otherwise it is a fine addon.  We even have TIMETRIALS for it here (for v2.1) :wave:
I like tracks that have lots of ups and downs, twists and turns.  Like NS, Rally China and naturally Joux too ;)

True indeed, I too was surprised by the 'flatness'. It's a total different story in the GTL version(2 layouts). There you feel the roman road very good, extremely bumpy and my force feedback gives me a heavy handmassage on this part of Lienz + it is twice as slippery. But as you said it is also very hard on the frames, most of the people have huge fps breakdowns in GTL version.



Edit:

How about Bathurst?

I will take a look to see if this has the same problem as the version on NG.

Thanks guys.  I added Lienz (but I too wish the cobblestones weren't flat), Col de Joux Plane, and Bridgehampton 67 (how did I miss that?).

I've intended to put a Bathhurst version up, but I'm not sure of the best one.  Let me know and I'll add it.

cheers,

hi,
   here's an obvious, and probably stupid question...how doable is it to make the new Targa Florio for GPL available for the Power and Glory mod?  personally I would love it...am I dreaming?  :blink:

                                                                thanks,
                                                                John

PS I've said this before....thanks so much for Power and Glory...it's the ultimate IMO

Yesterday I took a spin on the 'new' old style Bathurst conversion for GTR2. Works very well with the PnG cars  :3gears:

@traveler501

I'm not sure if the creator would give permission for a conversion at all + the amount of data for one track could be a problem in GTR2.

We now have the 1966 Jyllandsringen avalilable, courtesy of zwiss - http://www.nogriprac...i...4658&page=1

Come to think of it, I`ve had a lot of fun using the Hilltop track (especially in the irocs). I don`t usually go for any fictional tracks, but this one suits the P&G cars. It`s available over at Pilsbierbude - http://www.pilsbierb...id,728/lang,en/

Fixed a broken link for Le Mans 67.  It now points to sunlap2's version.  Thanks for letting me know, Frank.

Added 1966 Jyllandsringen and Hilltop.  Thanks Greg.  I've always really liked Hilltop too but was hesitant to add it since it was fictional.  Great flow, mix of corners, and has a really nice club track feel to it.

cheers,
steve  :wave:

Well from a South African perspective, the era's tracks would be East London, Roy Hesketh, Kilarney, Zwartkops and Westmead. Lorenzo Marques and the Rohdesian tracks must also be included as they also formed part of the Springbok series.

I will be building most of these in time with BTB, but it is going to take time as I want to do them properly.

I have already done significant research into Roy Hesketh and that will become my first release.

Cheers

Good - a realistic East London still seems to be missing for GTR2/RFactor (hope we'll see it for the latter as well - for Historix and the like of course)! :)

Great news, Paul! I'm sure there are many South Africans like myself that are eagerly waiting to get their hands on these SA tracks.  :thumbup:
