Rally Stavanger SS1-circuit for GPL. Track length is 903 meters in all asphalt paving street way, parking and back street. The first rally was in the year 2000 and later every year. There are nine SSâ€™s and this popular SS1 circuit consisting has near four laps, and reprise in the SS5 and the finale SS9 heat. The press reporting 10-20.000 spectators and most of them near this circuit. The area is a well-known trade centre in the region.
This very short and narrow rally track is made for test racing the marvellous GPL cars. Ideal for hot lapping or GPL warming and easy to imagine, if you spoiling a lap, itâ€™s easy to run a new. You can still make a full GP if you want.
Specially for this track:
*One of the narrowest GPL track ever.
*Driving beside concrete blocs and flower boxes.
*Driving on the sidewalk and diagonal down of it.
*Close to the buildings walls.
*Start line beside the race trace.
*Real modelling of camber and very accurate layout, the divagation depends most of the simplifying for the track sections.
*69-mod specific files included (Pbf and track.ini).
*Default setups for the 67- and 69-mod (65-mod setups you must download and copy to your folder).
*Original Crowd and Announce sounds from the rally 2007.

Note: My first track Lura 2004 (real roads) is identical in the T1-area. Three years later thereâ€™s some minor alteration of the asphalt and buildings. The year 2005 they repaved all of the streets in this area, and the sharp curbstones are now lower.
Minor layout changes are done at the parking areas over the years and this is the 2006 version. The graphics are based on the photos of 2007. The 2007 layout is near impossible to make because of an added concrete blocks chicane before the start line and two containers beside the back street chicane. Itâ€™s difficult enough to model the track without these removable objects. The GPL concept itself is not constructed for narrow tracks like this one, and to make it was not problem-free. Some minor bugs are hidden as good as I can do (bumps outside of the normal race line).
