60s Elaintarharata,Helsinki,Finland. --- F3 Classic Tracks 096

Helsinki street course used back on 60's

  1. Sergio Loro
    Hello to everyone!!
    Today is time to present my last addition to AC, the Elaintarharata street course, as it looks back on early 60's.
    Track lenght is 2.00 Kms and had a mix of nice turns, not a fast circuit at all but great for low powered cars as Alfa Romeo Giulia or a F3 car (if someday we got one) or a 60's motorbike :).
    I try to represent a 60's looking Helsinki, base on many pictures and vids i had, as usual with all my tracks, enviroment represent a mix of real stuff, and some of my imagination, mainly with crowds, paddock, advertising and race weekend stuff.
    Elaintarharata host many event from 1936 to 1963, it was not used anymore because of dangerous enviroment. you can face the death at every meter and its hard to imagine drove a race car around here, but was other time when motor racing was TOO dangerous.
    I had to say i'm happy with final result, i feel at a 60's race weekend everytime i fire up track.
    I hope to improve track on future if necessary.
    I try track many time and everything seems to work OK.
    PLEASE NOTE it is first time i used a more detailed mesh for track surface, i dont have a FFB wheel so i have to figure out track drives OK, but if you think track surface dont feel right just let me know.
    Know Issues:
    . Maybe there is problem with some collision object.
    . AI cars go out to qualy and raced pretty well, maybe because of narrow road sometimes get stuck behind a wreck car (usually my car :) ). Sometimes they cant go out to qualy but not sure if AC bug or my AI file bug, but at end of session all cars go out to qualy, after a few attemps.

    It is not allowed to host track zip file at a different site, if you want to host track please contact to me first.
    It is not allowed to modified track, if you want to modified something ask me :)
    All 3d objects are done by me , please if you want to use something for you track contact to me first.
    I used some files from Kunos tracks as asph mask,tarmac detail and grovee, mainly because i dont know how to do this type of textures, yet :)
    One or more textures on this 3D-model have been created with images from CGTextures.com. These images may not be redistributed by default. Please visit www.cgtextures.com for more information
    SPECIAL THANKS to Lilski and Jyrki "YardStick" Ihalainen for support and help for this project.

    This is a very nice track, and very fun to drive in old cars. I don't get why you didn't make this for RF2 though, where classic F3 cars are actually available.

    Very good, but can tell it's a beta on some details. Feels a bit low-res compared to other tracks.
