Los Angeles Times Grand Prix - Riverside International Raceway ver. 1.0
for GPLegends CanAm71 MOD

Made by Ginetto.

Track Location: Riverside - California, USA
Track Type : Race Track
Track elevation: 490 m. above sea level
Track Length : 5.311 km.- 3.30 mil.
Track Num. Turns : 9
Track Year : 1971

Track Editor : Ginetto

Historical Note:
The road course opened on September 21st, 1957, and operated until 1988. The revised turn 9, with the "dog leg" was built in 1969. The dragstrip operated from 1959 through 1970, and from 1983 through 1986.
Now the track is now gone for good; you can see some pictures from 2001 of what remain back then here:
http://www.tamsoldra...rsideToday.html

NOTE:
In the track folder you will find a Type7_horizon.7z file, is the 32 bits option for the sky and horizon.
Use this option only with v.2 rasterizers and the 32 bits graphics option selected.
If used with v.1 rasterisers GPL cannot load the track.

Textures and Horizon: Remy Roesz.
3DO cars: Gaus.
3DO motorhomes: Stefano Zampedri.

Beta testing: all the CanAm MOD team.

Special thanks to:
All the community for giving me the right support for making this happens!
All the special guys that developed the tools for editing every GPL related thing!
The notorious Papyrus for giving me lots of fun!


Enjoy,
Yours GINETTO

Bergamo Italy, 17 Jul 2012

UPDATE 1.1:
The famous Riverside tower didn't make in the final release after being there for months, my mistake.
Since I was there, I got rid of the people at T9 as requested by locals.
If you want to see the beautiful Tower at its right place, extract this file over the installed track into gpl/tracks/river71.
Ciao!

Many Thanks to the Track Creators mentioned above in the credits.

Saw this track on the Can Am Video and it looks great. Can't wait to try it out.

Another reminder why the GPL community is the best on the web - fact.  :thumbup:

One of my all time favourite GPL tracks just got even better! The layout is so much fun to drive that I forgot to check all the details (of which there are so many!) But I had time to notice the shadows under the trackside cars. Beautiful!

I´m enjoying this so much, thanks gentlemen!  :wowspring:
