INTERLAGOS  70'
Autodromo de Interlagos
São Paulo, Brasil

Track Type: Race Track
Length: 4.95m
Standard version: 1.0
Track years: 1969 - 1977
Idea and Track Creator: Pablo Fernandez
========================

General Information:
========================
When Pablo told me that his was starting to build a new Interlagos, I offered myself to help him, because I spent the whole 70’s there attended to races and after mid 70’s racing myself. At the beginning I was helping him to make the track the more accurate as possible regarding banked corners, gradients, corner angles, etc… When I did the first test I realize that something very important was missing. The Bumps !!!, Interlagos was famous for it´s bumps. In fact the track was a torture for every driver of every class of motor racing. I race there F Vee, F Ford and Touring cars. I had permanent bruises on my back and knees. The track was so bumpy that it was considered the closest thing to Rallie Racing ! Since it´s first WDC, every driver complained a lot about the condition of the track. It turns out that the fault wasn´t the asphalt per se, but the soil underneath the asphalt is not suitable for laying asphalt over it.
So, Pablo began to put all the bumps there to make it the most accurate as possible. As we started to test, it became clear that for GPL physics it was going to be impossible to drive. So we decided to cut some bumps out. Now the track is drivable and it dind´t loose it´s main characteristic: The bumps.
GPL tend to produce very flat tracks. One example is Zandvoort. The Dutch track should be much more bumpy than it is as so Monaco, Silverstone, Brands Hatch, Monza etc…
Probably Interlagos will be the first GPL track that brake this “flatness” barrier. I hope the next generation of GPL tracks will be more “bumpy accurate” than the old tracks.
Driving Tips : Memorize where the big bumps are and brake and change gears BEFORE them.
While racing try to listen the songs “Shake, Rattle and Roll” and “Only The Strong Survive”, it might help a bit !!
Have a nice race and fun.

December 2016

12-03-2016:
Added a server version.
The files need to be extracted into the previously installed interlag folder of your server.
This does not work for playing, just for server purpose.

12-07-2016:
Added a proper track.ini by Pavel.
Put it into your interlag track folder and let it overwrite the older one.
Thank you Pavel!

having been a long time fan of Emerson Fittipaldi, I remember listening to the radio announcing his win in 1973. He was just the youngest world champion ever, and began the 1973 season on a strong note.I cld only imagine it was a very great " modern" track to race on, but only when reading race reports. Later, TV coverage of the Brazilian GP showed the beauty of the layout

F1 cars shld have raced sooner, here. In 1969, this new track offered a great challenge.
With the bumps, it is a next step for the Great Game :soapbox: :drive1:


congrats and millions thanks Mr Fernandez , and Mr Skepis and all the team . :up: :fireworks2: :cool4:

Is December snd Christmas time in Brazil ? :Santa2:

A very nice track, great job :up:

Now, with this addon track of the 70's, we need a new mod in GPL ('71 or '73 for example...) :whistling: :P

Wonderfull track! Thank you guys :up:

BUT there is no way to host it on my server in windowed mode yet, as it has to run with Direct3D @ 16bit.
Is there a server version available?
