Well, with the addition of Lee's amazing GPL Pace Notes program, I have become interested in driving the Targa Florio course with the 1955 cars.  Since we do not have the Sports Cars that raced in that time period, I am using the Mercedes W196s as a sit-in for the Mercedes 300 SLR cars.  This is a real blast!!!

Here are some graphics changes to the Targa Florio track to bring it closer to the 1955 version for the Sports Car race.
This graphical update uses the '55 Mod naming convention ie 3do files are 355; mip files are m55; and srb files are s55.
Included are: rec55, track55, page055, '55 S/F banner, '55 Energol walkover bridge, '55 Esso sign and '55 Merc, Maser and Ferrari transporters replacing the '60s transporters, around the circuit.

[ EventXX ]
name=39° Targa Florio
shortname=Targa Florio
trackDirectory=targa
trackShortName=Targa Florio
flag=italflg
month=10
day=16
numberOfLaps=13
startingGrid=3

These changes are to be applied over the Targa Florio track by ginetto - http://srmz.net/tracks/targa/

Thanks, guys!

I'll continue to knock away at some more details so that you spot something decidedly 50-ish as you make your way around the circuit.  ;)

Hi gliebzeit,

Many many thanks for all these beautiful 1955-flavour updates. As of today, you have already released 29 of them :artist:
Calculation which doesn't include the ones that already came with the mod!

A good addition to this post could be to complete the Targa covers for other mods :drool: Cheers,
Gaizka
