Paramount Ranch, CA / USA for GTL by maeckie – Converted to GTR2 by Gary Waldock
This track was created by maekie; my only additions are a new loading screen, skybox and “rain reflections”.
Track Infos from Wikipedia :
Paramount Ranch Racetrack (sometimes called Paramount Ranch Raceway) was a motorsports racetrack located at Paramount Ranch in the Santa Monica Mountains in Agoura Hills, California. A total of seven races were held at Paramount Ranch from 1956-1957. After a series of fatalities in short proximity to each other, the track gained a reputation for being a dangerous circuit. After two seasons, Paramount Ranch Racetrack was closed.
In 1956, the owner of Paramount Ranch decided to build a road-racing facility. He approached Ken Miles and Dick Van Laanen to design the road course. They designed a paved road course nearly 2 miles (3.2 km) miles in length. The road course included 11 turns with uphill and downhill sections, a straightaway just shy of 3⁄4 mile, a bridge and underpass as well as a lake opposite the start/finish line. Bob Bondurant described the course as “unforgiving but a real challenge”.
Infos from original ReadMe for GTL :
“Set in the heart of the Santa Monica Mountains National Park this Historic Race Track has a unique and memorable history. It was crafted one spring day back in 1956, when the late and Great Ken Miles (winner of Sebring/Le Mans) drove a VW Bus around the hillsides and planned it all out in a single day!….the rest as they say is history. ”
Another ghosted track from the past, Paramount Ranch Racetrack’s premiere event took place in 1956. There were only a handful of races held at the mountainside race track, most of which were marred by dangerous track design that led to 3 fatalities in the 18 short months the track was operating at full capacity.
