Track Infos from Wiki :
The Circuit des 24 Heures du Mans, also known as Circuit de la Sarthe (after the 1906 French Grand Prix triangle circuit) located in Le Mans, Sarthe, France, is a semi-permanent motorsport race course chiefly known as the venue for the 24 Hours of Le Mans auto race. Comprising private, race-specific sections of track in addition to public roads which remain accessible most of the year, its present configuration is 13.626 kilometres (8.467 mi) long, making it one of the longest circuits in the world. Capacity of the race stadium, where the short Bugatti Circuit is situated, is 100,000. The Musée des 24 Heures du Mans is a motorsport museum located at the main entrance of the venue.
Up to 85% of the lap time is spent on full throttle, putting immense stress on engine and drivetrain components. However, the times spent reaching maximum speed also mean tremendous wear on the brakes and suspension as cars must slow from over 320 km/h (200 mph) to around 100 km/h (60 mph) for the sharp corner at the village of Mulsanne.
Virtual Track Infos :
Thank you for downloading this track. This track was originally converted by Frank55 to GTR2. The track was then historically updated and altered by that longtime modder The Psy, (Psyhcadellic). He contacted me by email and told me that he had been working on this track for a longtime and asked if I could finish it for him for release. I agree knowing him for such along time plus I wanted a good version of Le Mans for GTR2.
When I first ran the track I was amazed at the massive update he did to the track, it was a pleasure to continue his work and prepare it for release. I have not heard from him in sometime, so I am going ahead and releasing this track because I know that is what he had ultimately intended.
The track has rain reflections and nightlighting. There is an alter nate trk file for those who can’t hand the shadows.
Updates by The Psy :
