Track Infos from Wiki :
The Longford Circuit was a temporary motor racing course laid out on public roads at Longford, 23 kilometres (14 mi) south-west of Launceston in Tasmania, Australia. It was located on the northern edges of the town and its 7 km lap passed under a railway line viaduct, crossed the South Esk River via the wooden Kings Bridge, turned hard right at the doorstep of the Longford Hotel, passed over the railway line using a level crossing and traversed the South Esk again via another wooden structure, the Long Bridge.
Its first race meeting was held in 1953, the Australian Grand Prix was staged there in 1959 and 1965 and the track hosted a round of the Tasman Series each year from 1964 to 1968. It was also the venue for the single race 1962 Australian Touring Car Championship (at 7.242 km (4.501 mi), Longford is the longest circuit ever used in the ATCC), the Australian Tourist Trophy in 1960, 1964 & 1966 and a round of the Australian Drivers’ Championship each year from 1958 to 1965. Its use as a motor racing venue was curtailed due to financial issues, following the running of the 1968 Tasman Series meeting.
Virtual Track Infos :
I was recently asked by a friend “Anon” who sort permission from Woochoo to convert the excellent rfactor track to Race07 for him and in the end I was asked to do it for the other formats and share with everyone, so here is the 1967 Longford renamed to 67Longford to stop any clashing with other tracks. The aiw has been done for these simbin formats and although the rfactor track is a stunning piece of work there are certain shaders used in rfactor via BTB that this format does not recognise.
I have tried to do it justice and keep with the apperance during any changes to materials and remapping, lighting etc..it needed to run and look similar in this format, rain reflections and start/pitlights added – cameras were adapted for this version by “Anon”.
