Update to Mark Beckman's Kansas Lake Garnett track originally released in 2001
Know as the most dangerous track in North America mostly because of it's unprotected stonework at the dam crossing.


Update includes :-
Dirt pit lane and extra objects added.
Reshaped terrain, graphic fixes and improvements.
AI updated.


Installation :-
This update is a complete installation of the track and will install and overwrite any previous version of kansas, so as a precaution rename your existing kansas track folder as a back up in case you prefer what you had before.
( If kansas is not already installed just run the installer )

Unzip the archive and run the installer.
Check the path to your GPL installation is correct when prompted.
Have fun.


Credits :-
Thanks to Mark for his original track. Also thanks to authors ( especially Jackseller and Denis ) for textures from previous updates we may have used.

We hope you like our work.

ginetto and Paul.

Beautiful !!! :wowspring: :wowspring: :wowspring:
Many thanks for this update, Lake Garnett is a great track and now it's graphically at the top !!! :up:

But I don't remember to have made anything for it... It seems to me that it's rather JackSeller... :whatever:

Oh I love this track, though lost many cars in the creek.  Thought it long forgotten;  last update i recall was a more detailed train (how many years ago was that).

Thanks.

Thank you so much for this brilliant track which until today I never knew existed.

This is so much fun in the 1955 cars, you can get some lovely drifts on and the track just seems to flow from one beautiful corner to another.

Juat had a race and was leading for 5 laps then one little mistake at a first gear left hander and Fangio was through - bugger.  One of the best races I have ever enjoyed on GPL, even though I came second!

Thanks again Ginetto, Paul and of course Marc Beckman for the original track.

Lovely track, never ran here before but I will suggest it for leagueracing. :)

That solid barrier at the dam is "deadly" ;)

A couple of small updates for this terrific Lake Garnett Circuit (Kansas) track.

Pitlane cam repositioned so as to view all cars in the pits as they enter and leave.
A few small TV1 and TV2 cam updates for better views/transitions.
The Gem pic program cover now matches the page0 program cover (green).
