GTR2 Conversion & upates by ken (motorFX)
The real track :
Croft circuit is situated in North Yorkshire. Croft began it’s life in the 1920’s but it was not untill after the war that it really became a racing circuit like so many ex war bases and airfields. After World War II it was set to be an Aero club when the lease was aquired for it in 1947, but this venture didn’t “take off”. After the Aero club closed down drivers would come onto the track to make use of the track.
In 1962 half the airfield was baught at auction by Bruce Ropner and some of his motor racing friends. He was granted permission to create a racing circuit on the land and in 1964 the Croft circuit was completed. The first race at Croft was on 3rd August 1964. In 1997 the Croft circuit was extended and developed.
Virtual version :
there have been a few versions of Croft circuit, I started and did some updates on this Croft sometime in 2007 for a private league to use, but since then I have made some further improvements, after some remodelling, Retexturing, new trees, new Aiw , Animated marshals, Rain Reflections, I have offered it up for those keen on the running Touring cars to try, although it has produced some good races in all classes ..
latest version 30th May 2010
made some changes to the appearance, new textures and mapping, better lighting, added dynamic shadows from trees, pits and some other objects, now has a new aiw file, so the ai cars should have better races, less crashes at Hawthorn and the Jim Clark Esses (with AI set to real).
updates v1.3 by Team PBB :
– startlights fixed
– Stack of tires with collision
– Racetrack for 42 drivers
