Track Infos from Wiki :
Circuit Mont-Tremblant is a 4.26 km (2.65 mi) race circuit about 13 km (8.1 mi) south of the village of Mont-Tremblant, Quebec, Canada. The name of the village of Saint-Jovite was often included in the name of the circuit, but since the village was amalgamated into Mont-Tremblant in the year 2000, it is no longer considered or functions as an independent entity.
The first two sections of the circuit were built in 1964 and extended by another mile into September 1965. The extension featured long straights and by virtue of the terrain, a small hill. Nicknamed “the Hump” it gained legendary status during the inaugural 1966 Can Am race. Two drivers in practice found that their cars, both near identical Lola T70 CanAm cars, launched themselves into the air. Both drivers emerged unhurt but were unable to compete in the race. The Canadian winters quickly rendered the track surface very bumpy and as a result, the attrition rate was quite high in the two Canadian Grand Prix Formula One events staged at the circuit. Of the 40 cars entered in those two races (20 each, in 1968 and 1970), 21 reached the checkered flag (with only 16 classified – the rest finishing too far behind the race winners).
Major events :
FIA Formula One Canadian GP (1968, 1970), Can-Am (1966, 1969-1971, 1977-1978), Trans-Am – Trois Heures du Circuit (1968-1971, 1977-1978), USAC Championship Car (1967-1968), Grand Am Rolex Sports Car Series – 6 Hours of Mont-Tremblant (2002-2005), Champ Car World Series (2007).
Virtual Track Infos :
I updated this track from my 2009 version. As template i used real videos and photos from 2012. I fixed some bugs presented in the 2009 version, made corrections on the outfields,
removed stands right of the grid after finding that this is rained since 2006, added tree shadows and reviewed a large number of textures.
For the update of the circuit and part of the new objects (3D) one or more textures were created with images of CGTEXTURES.COM. These images can not be redistributed by default, please visit www.cgtextures.com for more informations.
There will be no conflicts with the 2009 and 2012 Version – you can have both versions installed at the same time !
I thank the following people :
– In first, my friend Boblebric who created the 3D buildings and the textures for it
– My great friend Thierry81 who reworked all AIW files for the SimBin Games
– Luigi for the great cameras
– TheSky for the grille lights
– Fred@ass for the horizon textures
and at the end Colvin35 and Matrix 6996 who allows me to use parts of their Hauler Trucks from their Houston 2007 track.
