Hello All,
The last few days I have been adding tracks to my folder that have more of a 1970's feel to them.I run the 69 extra mod and have had some
great racing and graphics with the following:
                                Watkins Glen 71
                                Zeltweg 71
                                Dijon-Prenois
                                Anderstorp
                                Nivelles-Baulers
                                Hockenheim 1970
                                Interlagos 1973
These tracks have more Armco,70's style to them.Just curious if there are any tracks in the works that would join these with that type
of atmosphere?It would be great to see Zandvoort,Silverstone,Monaco and Monza updated to  1972-1973 era.Also a nice Long Beach and
Fuji would be great.I'm sure I'm forgeting some more.What others?Happy New Year!! :clap2:

Cool!thanks-I did load this one up awhile back but had forgotten it with the newer Clermont-Ferrand 1965 that
is so spectacular.The Charade! 70 track is awesome as well.It's interesting the differences between the two
of them.I read somewhere that the 1970 race was the last Grand Prix ran without Armco barriers-so if this is
true the Charade! track would represent the 72 running better?Also the climb back up to the start/finish is
much steeper then on the 65 version.Either way they are both excellent versions. :hat-tip:

isn't one of the dijon variations fitting the bill? lots of armco all around.. i think there is a mid 70s and an 80s version out there (with nice pit girls :P - that just got the track an additional boost, lol)

Just looked at Fuji Speedway on Wikipedia.Very interesting history at this track.
Original track had banking with a present day picture of it-kind of looks like the remnants of
the old banked Monza track.Vic Elford talks about how dangerous it was.
