AUTHOR’S NOTE

Thanks for racing at Calder Park! This track represents my (i.e., Forza’s) initial effort into track conversion. At this time, Calder Park is operational, but not fully optimised for GTR2. So don’t expect to see volunteers from the Australian Motorsport Club showing you the yellow flag on any corners or the great Peter Brock flying past on a perfected racing line. And don’t go looking for the Thunderdome – it hasn’t been built yet!

In short, this version of Calder Park is in about the same shape as when Bob Jane acquired the Club circuit in 1974. Hopefully, in future GTR2 versions, Calder Park will be brought up to standards to host an Australian Grand Prix! In the meantime, enjoy this seminal version – and by all means, race her in the wet !

A final thanks to Steve, PvtStash, Hugh, Betty, & Greybrad.

Cheers,

Forza
