Tronaasen 2010 simulator track for Grand Prix Legends.
Historical events are the Rally Monte Carlo in the 1930's (Stavanger-Oslo-Monte Carlo). The tension was great and Tronaasen was constantly reviewed. Tronaasen located in south-vest of Norway is extremely steep and now protected heritage.
The GPL Track length is 13.1 km/8.1 miles. This including four completely different road types, where the second is the extremely steep Tronaasen section. More info, read section 2 - Tronaasen:
THE FOUR SECTIONS:
1 – E39 Lundewater
The first part is the E39 along the Lundewater. This is the original railway line constructed in 1904 to Flekkefjord and rebuilt to road in 1946.
Along the water here is the road almost flat, quite unlike the rest of this road, but side-terrain is very steep and there are four tunnels.
Driving GPL: Long curves, most of this fast.
2 – Tronaasen
The second part goes into what is one of the most historic roads in the country, thus Tronaasen. The gradient is more than 1:4, there are eight hairpins up to the top, and three across the top.
The road was built 1839-44. The hairpins was improved the year 1920 and the road was in operation until 1946, that is when the railroad along the Lundewater was rebuilt to road.
The gravel grew again with grass and eventually became the road impassable. In connection with the tunnel profiles were expanded along Lundewater in Vest-Agder, was Tronaasen road enabled again in 1973 as a bypass for local traffic and limited to light vehicles.
It was asphalt paved on the steepest sections and in the 1980s, there was paved more.
Driving GPL: Take care to centre the car to this extremity narrow road. It's about to control the throttle upward. The downhill and the last hairpin is the steepest. Warning, take extra care here, slow down firmly!
3 – Tronaasen-Bakke bridge
The most part is the road narrow and have gravel surfaces and is probably a typical rally kind of way, we can well say. Being from the 1800s here also marks the road with several really dangerous jumps.
Bakke Bridge is the first Norwegian suspension bridge from 1844 and is so narrow at the pier that the car feels almost like having to take the opening of a garage.
Driving GPL: With the F1-cars must speed down firmly for these crests to almost avoid fly out of the path. Because of some higher speeds, this is maybe the most dangerous part. The gravel surface is modeled as “type 3” where means less grip than asphalt, but better grip than gravel where isn’t a good choice. The tire skid is just like it was asphalt.
4 – Rv467
Typical Norwegian country road through some houses in an agricultural district along the river Sira. This is now Highway 467, which after a sharp left turn leads into the old E39 south, before it becomes sharp to right at an intersection and onto E39 north.
Driving GPL: High speed and narrow. At the end it's slower.
400 sections, 598 split.
4363 walls (10.9 per section)
31840 groove polygons
1075 normal objects
11 infield-outfield objects
55 sound spots
3 sound files
* For the public roads like this, the width, gradient and camber fluctuate all over and nothing is static.
* 5.2 km one lane narrow road.
* Four Tunnels
* One chain bridge
* One traffic-island
* Public signs on both directions and lights.
* 65, 66 and 69-mod specific files, included default setups and news pictures. News picture for RX-mod.
* Sounds; tunnel, people and bird.
High. Good graphic card is recommended and not too old computer. The track is complicated. The TV cams is not recommended to move, ctd can arise from a lot of other avoided positions.
