Track Infos from Wiki :
The Shanghai International Circuit is a motorsport race track, situated in the Jiading District, Shanghai. The circuit is best known as the venue for the annual Formula 1 Chinese Grand Prix which has been hosted since 2004. Shanghai International Circuit is a no-expense-spared facility, conceived by the Shanghai authorities as a way to showcase the city to the world. A 5.3 sq km site was chosen in the Jiading District in the north west of the city, close to major car parts manufacturing facilities and a budget of 2.6 billion yuan ($450 million) raised though a government-funded joint-venture company, the Shanghai Jiushi Group.
Herman Tilke was chosen to design the track and associated buildings, and between April and May 2003, engineers visited the site to draw up their plans. The site was actually a swampland, previously used as rice paddy fields, and extensive groundworks had to be completed to construct the circuit. For 18 months some 3,000 workers were on site daily to complete the facility – a remarkable feat of both engineering and logistics.
When it opened, visitors found a vast complex, dominated by the main grandstand and pit complex, which featured wing-like viewing platforms crossing the circuit at either end. This can hold 30,000 spectators alone, and others around the circuit take the total capacity to 200,000. Paddock facilities were also unique – each of the F1 teams had its own building, arranged like pavilions in a lake to resemble the ancient Yu Garden in Shanghai.

This is my first conversion. I made this track for me and to learn how the process works converting from rFactor to GTR2. I am happy enough with it to share. If you like it, enjoy it if you don’t, delete it. I don’t want to hear how bad the layout is or graphics aren’t good enough. but if you have constructive critisim, please let me know how to improve my skills.
The track has rain reflections, working start lights working pit lights Loading screens by Rip (Thanks Rip). Pace car works correctly. their is no street light so at night, you gotta race in the dark. Maybe if/when I figure out how to do them, I will add them.
Thanks to RacerM for his tutorial that gave me the knowledge to figure it out and David Noonan for his great program 3Dsimed. If you find problems with this track that need my attention, please leave me a message here at Nogrip in the forums or PM me. But I am usually only able to do updates on the weekends, so a fix from me may not be real quick.
