Track Infos from Wiki :
Goodwood Circuit is a historic venue for both two- and four-wheeled motorsport in the United Kingdom. The 3.8 kilometres (2.4 mi) circuit is situated near Chichester, West Sussex, close to the south coast of England, on the estate of Goodwood House, and completely encircles Chichester/Goodwood Airport. This is the racing circuit dating from 1948, not to be confused with the separate hillclimb course located at Goodwood House and first used in 1936.
The racing circuit began life as the perimeter track of RAF Westhampnett airfield, which was constructed during World War II as a relief airfield for RAF Tangmere. The first race meeting took place on 18 September 1948, organised by the Junior Car Club and sanctioned by the Duke of Richmond and Gordon. The winner of the first race was P. de F. C. Pycroft, in his 2,664 c.c. Pycroft-Jaguar, at 66.42 m.p.h. Stirling Moss won the 500cc race (later to become Formula 3), followed by Eric Brandon and “Curly” Dryden, all in Coopers.
Goodwood became famous for its Glover Trophy non-championship Formula One race, Goodwood Nine Hours sports car endurance races run in 1952, 1953 and 1955, and the Tourist Trophy sports car race, run here 1958-1964. The cars that raced in those events can be seen recreating (in shorter form) the endurance races at the Goodwood Revival each year in the Sussex trophy and the Royal Automobile Club Tourist Trophy (RAC TT).
Virtual Track Infos :
The first version for GTL, was converted by myself and philrob, and improved for the GTR2 engine, the track is based on the excellent track originally made by the GPLEA team, for GPL. and along with a few new objects, added the infields, landing strip, I added the paddock area, after several chats with the 60`s guru, Dave Wright , which the cars now use 🙂
he did lots of new graphics/textures, to keep with the period adverts, as its partly based on the first revival meeting, when i added the animated marshall’s i gave them white overalls as per the revival. Also included, are new rmbl textures by DaveWright L067, and the curbs, have been built so no rumble sound is heard as per real track, there is also a new and very fast AI, released with the full permission of GPLEA…..
I`ve since made some further updates to Goodwood for Version 2.0 , like to add special thanks to Thorsten Rueter, for doing some fantastic cameras for the rfactor version and now he has made some new ones for GTL and GTR2 versions.
