Hi all!

Past week I was very far to be an expert doing AI files, but I have to say that... ...nothing changed since that... :(  :P

However, here are my five cents in order to complete this track.  Please, Jonny, check if you agree with them and, of course, if any real expert "AIer" want to improve these files, it will be great.

Thanks Jonny for a lovely and extremely tricky little track

Marcos.

Thx Marcos!

The track on the GPLTD is now updated to (FINAL), the SRMZ button leads to post #23 and I added a little comment.

Just to put peoples' minds at rest:

As this track has recently been added to the GPL TotalRank, I've just tried to install it. As I was unpacking the track installer from its RAR file, Windows Defender raised an alert about a possible Windows trojan. I immediately updated my MalwareBytes scanner and scanned the RAR file (which also scans all files inside the RAR), and it found no problems at all. I'm 99.9% certain that the Defender alert is a false alarm, and I have disabled the alert for the track installer.

I have just completed installing the track, and everything appeared to run smoothly. I am now going to install the extra files (BAPOM covers and AI) and I will go for a test drive on the track. I'm sure I will enjoy it, but watch out for any edits below in case I have any updates in the next few minutes.

Thanks to Jonny'o for the track, and everyone else who helped him to bring it to us. :thumbup: :punk: :wave:

EDIT: Just one slightly odd thing I've found. The track installer updates the "season67.ini" file with the entry "flag=britflg" which shows the UK flag in the "best laps" display. It's quite easy to edit this to "flag=brazflg" so that the Brazilian flag is shown.

The track is short but good fun. It should suit the smaller cars ('65 F1, '67 F2 etc). Turn one is actually quite challenging, as you go over a crest into a downhill section in the braking area. It's easy to leave your braking too late and/or lock up your wheels, and then go sailing off into the bushes!

With the release of all these South American tracks, I'm becoming quite an expert at dodging capybara/capivara/carpincho as they run across the track!
:drive1: :fark: :phew: ;) :biglaugh:

EDIT 2: Sorry if this seems a bit picky, but I'm always interested in different languages. Should the word "Autodromo" be spelled as "Autódromo" with the accent over the first "o"? Is this the same for Brazilian Portuguese and South American Spanish spellings? (I've just checked on the Wikipedia worldwide list of racing circuits, and it does seem that all South American tracks should be spelled "Autódromo".)

Hi! Just to say that the track was made by Jonny :). I just did the AI

Hehe, I imagined that :)

And yes! Autódromo has an accent both in Spanish and Portuguese. The same ortographic rule for both languages "esdrújulas" (in Spanish) and "proparoxítonas" (in Portuguese) have accents :)

yes the correct one is autódromo.

thank you Saiph, it is always an expectation for your comment. :coffee:
   In order of construction it is like this:
1st track made by me is Ecpa (minuscule 1000m club track, not launched on srmz)
2nd Ceará (it took me a little longer to launch due to doubts with altitudes)
3rd Rivera (exercising altitudes more easily)
4th It must be Guaporé.

obs: Cascavel I finished only the textures and objects, it was a paralyzed track and the credit must be from Uncle Italo.
   I have another third people track that I'm finishing, called Guanabara.
I believe that Ceará has more rudimentary things in its construction because it is only my 2nd job, but anyway, this race track was very basic in 1969, just the brick and wall stands. Structures such as boxes and quardrails were only introduced in the late 70s. But we are in GPL !!! :drive1:

  But imagine the importance of this race track (Ceará) for the northeastern region of Brazil, they were 2,500 km from the southeast where the other race tracks in the country start.
  I hope to have relevant improvements in the next ones, always learning something new. Always remembering that there would be none alone, always remembering Ginetto's help.
And always remember the addons of Pavel, Marcos and Denis.

A short, quick and funny track! Thank you for the amazing job!
I hope you have time - and disposition - to create and spread the Brazilian tracks. It's very important, not everyone knows our automobile past...
Congrats!

Hello Ernesto! I came back yes! While there is time, everything is getting older and soon we will have few running. So don't waste time!
