Lakeside Park 1.00

Historic Lakeside Park just north of Brisbane, Australia

  1. Mikec87
    This is Lakeside Park, formerly known as Lakeside Raceway. It is a permanent track opened on 19th March, 1961.

    I made this track under licence from Queenland Raceway Pty Ltd in 2010 originally for rFactor 1

    After this track I made Queensland Raceway, Ipswich using CAD plans from QR and thousands of photos from the real track.

    With this version of Lakeside, it is not up to AMS standards, but does work quite well. I am working on a new version currently based on the 2015-16 version of the track. Quite a lot has changed over the last few years.

    Lakeside hosted 2 Formula One races in the late 1960s and numerous ATCC rounds up to about 2001. It was destined to be bulldozed to make way for housing, but thanks to public support, QR secured a 40 year lease on the land.

    Currently the track is used for track days and minor races due to the 95 decibel limit. Various clubs and social events take place weekly.

    These are issues with the track, and I will address these before I release version 2.0. This has new road and terrain mesh and all new objects and details.

    I anyone would like to help upgrade the AIW and other bits, please contact me and we can build it to something special.

    Thank you for trying it out,

    Mike Cantwell

    I've given 3 stars just because this is my local race track, i take my kids to watch the street sprints quite often.
    I just wish i new how to help improve the visuals and put some of the AMS track evolution in.

    Layout and elevations are good, however mesh in certain areas is extremely bumpy, also track limit error on final turn when on racing line.

    Boring and permanently repeating textures, terrible looking polygons and we have got 2016, not 2003 with rFactor1.

      Hi. Yes. Fortunately i got hold of a topo surveyors map and used it as a base in (gasp!) Bob's Track Builder.

      I then finished a early version in Max before the big update to the track in 2009. The version here is how the track looked in 2010.

      Over the last 5 years it has been cleaned and updated, so it deserves a huge update to the current 2016 layout.

      Thanks for the feedback.

      Thank you for that. This track is essentially a place holder til V2.0 comes out.

      I will also fine tune this version a bit as well.
