Pablo Fernandez made another beautiful Argentinian  track for us all to enjoy.
Please read the following then download and install the files. Thank You Pablo

Autodromo Ciudad de Parana  

Track Type: Race Track
Length: 2.730m
Standard version: 1.0
Track years: 1969 - Current
Idea and Track Creator: Pablo Fernandez

General Information:
Located near the city of Parana in the state of Entre Rios, this circuit was inaugurated in December 1969 with a Sports Prototype race and a National F2 race.  Carlos Reutemann won the F2 race.  From then on through the years, all National race cups took place at the Parana circuit.

The track itself has an anti-clockwise direction with a long straight up to a heavy-braking T2, preceded by a long and fast banked T1. The infield has a mix of turns, starting with T3 which has a slight opposite bank that slows you down just a little bit more than the curve itself would.  For the rest of the circuit, you want to have a smooth and well balanced car that allows you to turn better and get earlier speed onto the straights.  The last curve is a 180° banked corner where the most important thing is to be "slow in - fast out" onto the main straight.

I want to give my special thanks to:

3 tracks and counting! :D Parana is a great drive.. well built, it looks just like in Claudio's videos.. I can even recognise the driver inputs! I do the same ones in the long fast right hander and final corner!!

If my setup is too loose, please try the usual modifications such as a tighter diff, personal brake bias and steering ratio settings (more forwards, slower steering) :); perhaps soften the roll bars too, but I found that 25 lbs more on the front gave a good front turn in (Kimi Raikkonen would like this ;)). Turismo Carretera looks like a blast! :checkeredflag:

Thanks a lot once again Pablo (and all others involved) for another fine addition to GPL! :)

First impression, it's very flat, also the surroundings and horizon, it's like I'm at my home country! Looks very well made again, very clean. Has a modern feel to it, no wonder they still race at it! (thanks Claudio).

Nice lap Iestyn ;)
