Here is my update for Thruxton.
It is based on Dave Sabre's original track and Ginetto's fix from October 2010. The track layout is unchanged but there are many new objects, textures and a new AI.

Denis ( Db312 ) helped with some beautiful textures.  :thumbup:  ( There are high resolution versions attached to this post. )

Pavel made a new AI that is a vast improvement over previous versions and gives you a good race with all mods. :thumbup:

Ginetto helped us with the .trk :thumbup:


IMPORTANT - This update is a complete installation of the track and does not require other files.
Because this update includes different 3do and textures it is not compatible with previous versions of the track. Therefore if you have Thruxton already installed on your system you must rename or remove it before installing this one.

INSTALLATION - In your gpl/tracks folder remove or rename any previous version of thruxton.

Unzip the attached "gpltrackinstall_thruxton_v1.0" archive.
Run the installer


EDIT - Denis made some files for the SC building and one of the trees but they were missed out of our update. They are in the "Thruxton_DB_extra_files" zip

Attached Files

Paul, what a beautiful update to another historic British track.  It seems to be located about 100 km northwest of my favorite track.  ;)

Thank you and your helpers for a terrific update to Thruxton circuit.  Very nice!!

Thanks all.

Yes Greg, just up the road from our other favourite track. :)
In fact Thruxton was the replacement when Goodwood closed.

It looks great, thanks!!

Thruxton had freezes or am I wrong? I never raced there, actually.

Cheers, Marcos
