Track Num. Turns : 15

Special Thanks to :

Robert Zeugin, he envolved on this project 2 months ago, all the logo mips, lamp posts,the wall to the right of first turn, the Portugal's and Porto┬┤s city moving flags, the walktrough mip and some other I forgot was made by Robert, he is some kind of magician and quality of track change a lot with his textures! THANK YOU ROBERT

Jonh Bradley, he made a wonderful cover for this track :)


The moving flags 3dos and mips (except the Porto and Porto City flag) was made by J.Basara, uses under permission, thanks John!!

The vans 3ods and textures was made for Oversteer (Avus 50's author) and uses under permission, thanks Oversteer!!

Most of the trees 3dos and srb was made by Jim "King of editors" Pearson, uses under permission, thanks Jim!!

Note I :  Maybe the AI need a little bit more work. Like my others recent tracks you can use rpytolp program!.

Note II : I used a few mips, 3dos and srb files from others tracks, the full credit its for their authors.

Note III : If you have some FPS problem you can use the porto58.3do (place in porto_lowfb.rar file). just unpack it at sierra/gpl/tracks/porto58

All textures max 256x256, most of it  4-bit, some 16-bit (i can not convert it to 4-bit with out loss quality ;), so i decided keep it 16-bit)

Sweet !!  Just received my copy of Porto and really looking forward to blasting around this course after how many laps of just admiring Sergio's & all others who helped
him out as I'm sure it'll be topnotch as is the way Sergio does things! :thumbup: Excellent short write up thanking everyone involved and some history too!
So many thanks to you Sergio for your work in the past and in the future and of course for Porto - Circuito da Boavista - 1958 .
So time for a morning cup of Java and a tour of Porto. :thumbup:  :thumbup:
Cheers Quattro :wave:

These arrows showing turn ahead are helpful :lol:  :thumbup: and the tarmac is greased lightning for me! B) So I'm looking forward to many hours of fun trying to tame this course!

Wow, its fantastic!
Firmly a favorite of mine already :thumbup:
I can't really string more than a couple of laps together without crashing at the moment, I keep putting it in the straw bails in the esses section, but boy is it a blast! :woot:

Thanx Sergio and Robert for all of your hardwork!!! :thumbup:  :thumbup:

I remember seeing the early versions and thinking there was an enormous amount of work to do to bring the track to life. I know for Robert's part it has been sheer dedication to this great track.  :cool:

This is my first post but I'm a GPL fan for a long time now.

I live in the "Porto-58-Circuito da Boavista" area and I drive on the actual roads every day, it's not very different today.

I want to congratulate the producer for the excelent job.

I want to inform that this July-2005 it will happen the re-edition of the "Porto-Circuito da Boavista" track, it will be a major sport event here in Porto-Portugal.
Here's the link:

Is there anyone who wants to make a race in this track one of these days? Send an email please. antmota@hotmail.com (messenger also). I drove the Ferrari 312 for months but now changed to Eagle.
