Thank you Ginetto and Remy + supporters!

Great work of you all!

This track just makes you want to drive one more lap and another one and one more, ... and... :)

Nice to read that you even got feedback of a veteran racer!

What's next? :D ;)

"Oh I can smell the Bratwurst now. "  -  They're on the grill.  Can you see the smoke opposite the pits.  ;)

Thank you most heartily to Ginetto and Remy for all of the dedication and immense work on producing this beautiful creation of one of America's great tracks!
It has been a thrill to work with you guys.

Has been a true honor being able to help in the creation of this very special version of Road America for Grand Prix Legends, and to learn first hand a little bit of what goes into making a track.

Beyond the technical skills and knowledge necessary, it is up to the builders to persevere with a level of dedication to detail and to excellence that raises the bar to its highest possible level.

Congratulations to all other Road America build team members who contributed their special skills.

What an effort and what a result!
A beautiful work of art and way too much fun.

Thanks to everyone!



Attached pic...track consultant Bo driving the #24 Townsend Special around the Carousel in 1959. Think it would pass tech inspection today? Bo said they didn't call it the Carousel back then, they called it "over by the gravel pit."

:D
Drivers, start your engines. Wuhooooo!

Thank you, John, for your dedication, stories and the many details that you provided the team during 'construction'.  :)

**********************************************************************************
As a small "Easter Egg', if you have the '66 Can-Am Mod installed, when you go to Road America you will have a race/track specific carset for the 1966 Road America '500'.
This carset is courtesy of G.Spinning and myself.  (watch this space)

"Also a 1966 USRRC option for the page1 and event of the menu is in its own zip file."  :)
