    The legendary Ahvenisto “Appara” Circuit in Hämeenlinna, Finland. Scratch-build track based on LiDAR data.

    About
    The construction of Ahvenisto Race Circuit was finished on July 15, 1967. The circuit is 2,840 metres long. It features a total elevation change of 32 metres, its main straight is 280 metres in length and its width varies between 9 metres and 17 metres. Its elevation changes, short or sometimes inexistent run-off areas, and numerous fast bends have led to some to suggest that it is the hardest and most dangerous race track in Finland. (Wikipedia).

    Official lap record stands at 1:13.226 by Marko Nevalainen in a Formula Three car. Unofficial lap time by Formula One World Champion Keke Rosberg managed an unofficial lap record of 1:10.000 during his 1984 show run in a Williams FW08C Formula 1 car. (Wikipedia).

    Track Features:
    • 20 pit boxes
    • Track map and corner names
    • Physical road mesh
    • 3D grass for High, Very High and Maximum settings
    • Dynamic racing groove
    • TV cameras
    • Time Attack mode support

    Credits:
    • Track marshalls (Nobby76 and Rigel)
    • 3D People (Lemax)


    NOTE:
    • Starting from the pit, you have to drive one complete lap before lap times are counted. This is done to prevent overly fast laptimes started from the pit. Hotlap mode works normally.

    FAQ:
    • Yes, I know this track have been already made
    • No, this track doesn't have anything to do with other Ahvenisto previously added to RD
    • Because I wanted to create more precise version

    Very excellent and realistic track, i drive few hundreds laps every summer and this is so authentic! Shame that we can't make first lap from pit count, but i go around this by turning right after pit exit and doing whole lap so every lap would count.
    Please do Botniaring and Kemora, they would be awesome for training for IRL laps.

    4/5 stars, only reason for not giving 5/5 is textures, grass and gravel aren't realistic for resolution and color.

    Very good work! There's some textures that look too "flat", particularly in the grass/run-off areas and some oddity with time/lapcounter when exiting pits but othewise good. Maybe bit more testing needed..

    I think the grass is way too bright. Other than that it looks and feels pretty good!

    This just gets more polished every time. Beautiful circuit. Some high FPS in places? Might be just my system.

    Best version of Ahvenisto in any sim to date. I still get sector time errors (first sector) from time to time which cuts laptimes.

    I don't think many mods deserve 5 stars from me but this deserves it.

    Love it, thank you. If I may suggest some points to improve, it would be the textures of the small slopes/ rock bankings trackside, and the color and texture of the grass. The grass is pooltable green here, and basically a flat surface too.

    Well done. A fine track to use low power cars and having a lot of fun with them. Only thing i found that has a little problem is the replay camera suite. TV No 7 has a sequence your sight is blocked by trees and TV No 8 shows only the pits section.

      yep, I'm currently aware of issues in TV cameras. These will be fixed in next update.

    Great track, quite a challange with almost all corners either uphill or downhill, highly recommended!

    One thing though: one of the replay cameras is placed behind the trees... :)

    Wow. That's an incredibly fine track! Very nice flow, nice classic feeling -- they should still build them like that nowadays.
