Circuit Infos from Wikipedia :
The 100,000 capacity Algarve International Circuit (Portuguese: Autódromo Internacional do Algarve), commonly referred to as Portimao Circuit, is a 4.692 km (2.915 mi) race circuit located in Portimão, Portugal. With a total cost of €195 million (approximately $250 million), the project includes a karting track, technology park, five-star hotel, sports complex and apartments. Construction was finished in October 2008 and the circuit was homologated by both the FIM on 11 October 2008 and the FIA two days later. The circuit was designed by Ricardo Pina, Arquitectos. In October 2010 the teams agreed to add the Portimao Circuit to the Formula One testing roster along with Bahrain.
The circuit hosted the final round of the World Superbike Championship on 2 November 2008. On 9 June, the track was confirmed to host a round of the 2008-09 A1 Grand Prix season. The race was set for the weekend of 12 April 2009. On 10 October 2008, the Le Mans Series announced a 1000 km night race to be held at Algarve on 2 August 2009. On 5 November 2008, the FIA GT Championship announced and 7th round of the 2009 season will be held at Algarve on 13 September 2009. A Formula One test session, with the McLaren and Honda teams participating, was scheduled for 15–17 December 2008. Ferrari also ran at Algarve. Toyota also tested at the circuit on 20 January 2009 in the first outing of their new TF109 chassis. The circuit will also host the final round of the 2009 GP2 Series season in September 2009. From 2010 it will host a round of the FIA World Touring Car Championship.
Virtual Track Infos :
This track was originally converted by Goresh to GTR2. This track was a new addon to Race07 by Simbin, the Original creators. I took Goresh’s original conversion and improved on it, thankfully with his permission. I added Prodrive’s Hi-Res Texture pack to the track along with his tv cam update. His readme is included in the folder.
I added this update because after looking at the photographs and video of Algarve I observed that the landscape is not green like the RaceOn original track is, this is closer to realism and that’s what I was going for.
updates by RacerM :
I added the texture updates and cams, deleted all of the unrealistic adverts, added all of the dynamic shadows and shadow boxes, lit the track by night (I will add nightlighting in the next version). i fixed all the unnecessary hat and collateral targets (slowing the track down) changed the lighting. Added models and adverts. I created the loading screen from RIP’s template.
