Amaroo Park 1967 v1.0 by sunalp for GTR2
Amaroo Park was a 1.9 kilometres (1.2 mi) motor racing circuit located in Annangrove, in the present-day
western suburbs of Sydney, Australia. It opened in 1967, hosting it’s first motorcycle meeting on
26 February with a 30 lap production race won by Larry Simons on a BSA Spitfire in heavy rain.
The first dry meeting saw the lap record set by Jack Ahearn at 63.9 seconds. The road circuit served as a
host for a variety of competitions including the Castrol 6 Hour motorcycle race, the Australian Touring Car
Championship, Formula Ford, Formula 5000, historic racing and others.
The complex also had a Hillclimb, a Motocross track, a little used Speedway track and a Short Circuit track.
Amaroo was one of Australians iconic Motorsport venues which finally closed its gates in 1998.
Tragically it is now a housing development.
This is a conversion of the GPL track by Sergio Loro and Doc Roberto.
Converted to rFactor by Bud Lucas.
Thanks to Sergio and Bud for giving me permission to convert this track to GTR2.
I originally converted Version 1.0 by Bud which was updated from the 1967 style GPL track to the 1990’s.
I have brought it back to the 60’s with period style Advertising.
Since I first converted the track an updated version was released by David Hingston (Hingo).
I have used some of the textures from Version 2, mainly the trees by Neil Faichney (Krunch).
Being a short track with a small pit area it is only suitable for 24 cars.
– Includes Animated Marshals (These were originally done for me by McWolf, but I have since re done them)
– Working Safety car
– Rain reflections
Please remember this was a GPL track and it may not be up to the standard of today’s tracks in the eye candy
department, but it is a huge amount of fun to drive and you will soon forget about the scenery.
This has taken me quite some time, as it was my first conversion, and I really wanted to do the track justice.
I have learnt quite a bit since I started on this, so I hope you enjoy it.
I do intend to update this track in the future.
