done by BillBro :

Per the readme included, it was built by Richard Neville for GPL.

I have no idea who converted it to rfactor. A member at another site asked for help with it for rfactor. It was pretty messed up, but I got it working. Then I noticed some other problems. Long story short, I started addressing them. Some time later, here we are.

I had to add xfinish.gmt, xsector1.gmt, xsector2.gmt, xpitin.gmt and xpitout.gmt objects. The .AIW was in a sorry state. It had no distance entries for either the entire track, or any sectors. So the .AIW was extensively modified. The textures looked horrible. Material settings were messed up. Objects were popping in and out, or disappearing before your eyes in some

I added start and pit lights, and rain reflections. The pits area had to be reworked as well.

There was an area near the approach to the tight corner at the far end of the track, relative to the pits, that had to have some terrain filled in. You could see a big hole in the terrain beyond the trees coming up the hill at the end of the long back straight, up to the previously mentioned corner.

I think there were some other things, but those are the major areas that I worked on.

Hope you enjoy it. It’s quite a fast track once you learn the layout.

Best wishes,
