    The Automotodrom Grobnik Rijeka lies on the Croatian coast, in the mountains above Rijeka city. Circuit runs in an anti-clockwise direction with a total distance of 4.17 kilometres (2.59 miles) which includes a series of long straights and fast left-right sweeping corners. Track it self is because of that very challenging to drive, specially in a cars with a low downforce.

    Although the circuit is approved by the FIM (Fédération Internationale de Motorcyclisme) and the FIA (Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile). The focus is mainly on training, testing and particularly on concerts which perfectly fit with the beautiful surroundings.

    From 1978 to 1990 it hosted the Yugoslavian motorcycle Grand Prix races where ases like Roberts, Lawson, Rainey and other famous riders were winning.

    I've had this lying around without trying it out. Just did and it's really great. Still haven't gotten a decent lap in, and I'm in no hurry since I could spend hours just hot lapping :)

    Registered on this site just to rate this track. I'm in love with it has such a nice flow to it you just go lap after lap after lap and the hours fly by. First chance I'm having I'll be flying to croatia to visit this track.

      Thx mate. Yes, go there, you wont be sorry. But the track it self is not in a very good condition, they think to renovate it soon.

    What an amazing track! Having a great time negotiating the corners and low depression areas. Great work on the mountains and background scenery. What appears to be a vineyard off in the distance looks great. Well done!

    Terrific! Looks fantastic and is really nice to drive on. Great road surface detail and scenery. A couple of rough textures hear and there and some of the hills in the background are covered with trees in an unnatural pattern. Minor niggles really. Fits in very nicely with the default content.

    Would love to drive this track but unfortunately due to poor optimizations on some parts of the track fps drops from 62 to 48 and makes it undriveable on my system. Otherwise looks really good and the flow of the track is great!

    Needs to be said again: few tracks has such flow, so many great corners on such short distance. Great job capturing it. 5/5

    This track is really amazing with a lot of speed curves and nice bumps. It's all what I like in a track. Some textures need to be improved around the track (rocks, sand or some trees) but the track is perfect ! Good job ;)

      Thx.
      Bumpy is because the tarmac in cca 30 years old if not more, and all cracked :)

    Thank you very much that you introduce Grobnik to me! Usually I don't rate mods etc but this track is stunning !!! I want to say that this is the best track I have ever seen. Better than Kunos tracks. Its not everything about graphics but most important is if we like the flow of the track. For me Grobnik is most enjoyable track from hundreds another. Even from Kunos choose!
    Why? Because I love tracks with a lot of middle speed and high speed curves and with castbacks few as possible. Grobnik is for me one of the best track for simracing. For most people is best Spa, Le Mans etc. For me Grobnik :) No one has so enjoyable fluency like Grobnik.
    Please Don't stop improve this masterpiece if you have some ideas how to improve yet

    Tremendous amount of work on this one. One of the most ffb expressive tracks around. Rough club driving feel, so not the usual smooth (or terribly converted/rough) meshes. Just plenty of good racing tarmac in a realistic style, with a very enjoyable layout.

    I really love this track, great flow and nice mix of corners - Thanks for the effort, it is appreciated.

    If any performance improvements are possible, they would be welcome.

    I am also experiencing texture flickering in the replays, at the start of the replay before cars start to move most of the adverts flicker on the barrier, pretty distracting.

    This track always feels poorly optimize and produces so many cpu bottlenecks. I had to oc my 4690K to 4.4Ghz to stay above 40fps random drops with pretty moderate graphic settings. I know there's trees and stuff going on but there are other tracks with much more vegetation that do not have that behavior. That being said, Grobnik is the track which i have put the more klm by far than any other track. I would love to see it becoming more alive and fairly optimize in the future. Thanks for your effort and the share alike.
