Queensland Raceway 2012 v1.0

Queensland Raceway 2012 for GTR2

GTR2 Conversion by khan1670

A conversion of Zolee145’s Queensland 2012 rFactor Version with permission.

I know there are now some really good Queensland versions out, but since I was doing all Zolee’s V8 tracks the more the merrier. Should not conflict with other versions.

Track Infos from Wikipedia :

Queensland Raceway nicknamed “the paperclip” is a motor racing circuit located at Willowbank in Ipswich, Queensland, Australia. The circuit plays host to V8 Supercars, the Australian Superbike Championship, drifting as well as club level racing and ride days.

Queensland Raceway is 3.12 kilometres (1.94 mi) long and 12 metres (39 ft) wide, running clockwise. There are six corners. The circuit was designed by Tony Slattery with input from car and motorcycle racing authorities including CAMS circuit expert Professor Rod Troutbeck. The circuit is licensed by Australian motorsport‘s two peak bodies, CAMS Limited and Motorcycling Australia, but generally sanctions its race meeting under the RACERS. It runs its own championship series, the Queensland Racing Drivers Championship.

Spectator viewing at the track is excellent with the flat layout of the circuit and spectator mounds. However the flat layout makes racing less exciting for the competitors than undulating circuits like Phillip Island. The track became infamous for its bumps, although the track was re-surfaced late in 2011. Queensland Raceway is located within the bounds of the Ipswich Motorsport Precinct, which is also home to the Willowbank Raceway dragstrip, a kart track, a short dirt circuit and a junior (under-16) motorcycle speedway. The track is also located near RAAF Base Amberley and shares the base’s 6 kilometres (3.7 mi) noise exclusion zone.

The track has been known for a number of deaths including club racer Dennis Smith and porsche supercup driver Sean Edwards in 2013. Two further deaths occurred when a 32-year-old driver and 41-year-old passenger were killed in August 2017.

Queensland Raceway currently operates without a permanent circuit licence from CAMS. Following the 2017 Supercars Event FIA safety inspections revealed a number of areas that required upgrades in order meet the FIA Grade 3 circuit requirements, as required for to host a Supercars event. The ICC was due to approve the funding to provide the upgrades in late May, however the circuit is still lacking catch fencing on the main straight bringing in to question the hosting of the 2018 Supercars event.
