I recreated one of my favorite tracks from the Gran Turismo series. Although I have the best memories of it from GT2, I tried building it the way it is in GT6 for a more modern look.

Features
  • 3,5 km track
  • 20 pits
  • AI
  • GT6 billboards or F1 skin
  • TV cameras
Recently I learned using Blender a bit and I decided to finally start this project. It's a lot of work and I would rather take my time and never finish it, than rushing it and get it wrong. So for now don't expect a polished track, but it's already pretty fun in my opinion.

First I started converting crdriver63's track from rFactor 1, but I decided to start from scratch, as this would make my life in blender easier (so I can now work with beziers and stuff, instead of a converted fbx).

I didn't plan to release it in this state because I think many people will only download a track once and never update it (yes I'm guilty), but I will probably stop working on it for the next few months due to personal reasons... So I decided more people than just the few forum users can already enjoy it for a while.
But I still have big plans for the track and plan to continue building and improving it in the future.
Of course I will do some big fixing though, if anything pops up.

Installation:
Download the newest version of the track and extract it to your ".../AC/content/tracks" folder (there should be no version number in the folder name).
Or simply Drag&Drop it to Content Manager and click install, if you use it.

Download old versions:

Release 0.6 beta:


Old versions playlist

Changelog:
- better tree shadows
- higher tree texture resolution
- added fences around the track and some walls in the last two corners
- added f1 skin for cm by Ofitus21 (thanks!)
- converted all pngs to dds for better performance
- gave billboards a better material instead of plain colors
- some minor fixes
- grandstands like in GT6 and new spectators
- split the track up into multiple .kn5 files

I would be very happy if you gave it a test drive and give me any feedback.

Hint: The track is optimized for usage with CSP (custom shaders patch). If it doesn't look like this, you probably don't use CSP, especially regarding the 3D grass.

To-Do:
- rocks
- add some imperfections to walls and fences
- skidmarks
- more diverse textures for grass, rocks, etc.
- make textures look less repetitive
- tunnel reverb sound FX
- track lights for night races
- details, details, details

Thanks to:
- Sony/Polyphony for the great track
- NightEye87 and many others in the RD forum for the countless detailed answers to my noob questions
- LilSki and many others for the great tutorials
- steevee for the tv cameras
- Ofitus21 for the F1 skin and initial AI lines
- My buddy Tobsen for the feedback and fun we already had on the track
- All of you for the nice feedback I received on YT, RD, etc.!

Very nice job, my favorite track from GT series, my nostalgia loved drive on this one!!
Very nice job and a big plaisir to find it in AC !! , but lack of replay on the reverse layout !
it seems smaller in a modern system but I was getting lap times similar to GT2 days so good work!
Very fun to drive and already a great foundation to enhance it graphically in the future. Thanks!
Fun track. Thank you!
Finally had a chance to nip around the track and it is wonderful an absolute joy to drive on. Hope to see this track being worked on but boy is there a lot of potential and strong fundamentals for it to be an amazing recreation.
