Update version 2.0

Sausage kerbs
The tires at the inside of corners for preventing cutting corners are replaced by sausage kerbs. These will still prevent you from cutting corners, but when hitting them it will be less dramatic.

3d trees
The old 2d trees are replaced by the newest 3d trees. For seeing these trees you need to have Content Shaders Patch version 0.1.79 installed. With older CSP versions or no CSP you will still see the old 2d trees. We have tested the impact on FPS, and in our tests it had no significant impact.

Track lights
Not all older GPK tracks did have track lights. With the 2023 updates all tracks will have track lights. The track lights at Baku are a bit different from the other GPK tracks. On the other GPK tracks the track lights are more like on real F1 tracks with night races, they illuminate the track quite brightly.

Because F1 drives on Baku during the day, the street lighting on GPK Baku has more of an evening atmosphere of a city.

Old version tires at inside of the corners and 3d trees:

FSGP 2023
During every Formula 1 weekend in 2023 we organize a FSGP race in the MAD Formula MFT02 on the GPK version of the Formula 1 circuit. Information can be found at simracinggp Formula Student community.
For every FSGP race there will be released a new 2023 update of the GPK track.


The Track
Street circuits have their own peculiarities in Formula One. Monaco is one of the most popular Grand Prix on the calendar. Other major cities seem to be benefiting as well. In this way Baku tries to be the Monaco of Eastern Europe. With many long straights, a very long straight but also a slow section around a castle, Baku also has its own special character.
This is the Grand Prix Karting version of Baku. Like GPK Monaco, the dimensions have been specially adapted for Formula Student.

Grand Prix Karting
Grand Prix Karting tracks are F1 tracks with the layout of the original F1 track but the size, look and feel of real world karttracks. No big runoff areas, but modern wide kerbs, pit not on the infield but on the outside of the track, not many grand stands but a pitbuilding which is also a grandstand. These tracks are not a resized conversion of existing tracks but scratch build. Not laser scanned (because they are fiction) but handmade, which was a bit of a challenge with some tracks with a lot of elevation in the track and the terrain surrounding the track.

The Grand Prix Karting Baku track is different from all other Grand Prix Karting tracks. The others are somewhat in the middle between the original F1 circuit and a regular outdoor karting track. The Baku track is, just like Monaco, the original F1 track made smaller, with imagery buildings. The original buildings would not fit beside the smaller track.

Red Bull ring is already done for rFactor. I am trying to make it just a bit bigger for AC, so it is better suited for FSGP.
