    About:
    The Red Bull Ring is a motorsport circuit in Spielberg, Austria.
    The race circuit was founded as Österreichring and hosted the Formula One Austrian Grand Prix for 18 consecutive years, from 1970 to 1987. It was later shortened, re-built and renamed to A1-Ring, which hosted the Austrian Grand Prix again from 1997 to 2003. When Formula One outgrew the circuit, a plan was drawn up to extend the layout. Parts of the circuit, including the pits and main grandstand were demolished, but construction work was stopped and the circuit remained unusable for several years before it was purchased by Red Bull's Dietrich Mateschitz and rebuilt. Renamed it to Red Bull Ring and the track was re-opened on 15 May 2011 and subsequently hosted a round of the 2011 DTM season and a round of the 2011 F2 championship. Formula One returned to the circuit in the 2014 season.

    The old Österreichring was more often referred to as being located at Zeltweg, which is bigger and better known. However, the circuit was never relocated, only modified.

    The litmus test for your work is a comparison with the Kunos version of the Red Bull Ring released yesterday. In my opinion, it does not hold a candle to your mod neither visually nor ffb-wise. Your mod just provides incomparable sheer driving pleasure. A+.

    Better than ever, top quality. The only thing is that I don't have a track map in-game but you really deserve the 5 stars for your work

      Delete the map.png files in each tracks folders, and start the session two times (in the 1st track map would be created).

    I've tried it numerous times before and always left with a bitter taste in my mouth. But 2.0... i don't know what you did but this is just incredible. I'm not sure if i can bring myself to delete this after kunos releases theirs.

    You're doing a fantastic job on this special race track. I didn't realize Turn 1 had changed so much. Thanks for the update there. What do you mean by "dynamic tyre grooves that changes during racing". Are you saying that the blackened tarmac (from rubber) changes in appearance during the course of a race?

      Set grip to low and/or high, and you will see the difference. If grip is rising (in online races, you will notice that black racing line is getting darker and darker).

    Absolutely Fantastic Track! This really is at Kunos's level of detail... Simply amazing level of detail... EVEN down to the 3D grass!

    Right where is the 10 Stars button?

    Absolutely superb job!! :)

    Looks great! 4/5 stars. Thank you.

    -1 star for not having a physical mesh. Most straights have no FFB feeling due to this. 95% of all AC mod tracks lacks this and its like a mod car without proper physics. People rate 5/5 anyway so thats why we almost never get a physical mesh. All official AC tracks have it. Its what makes your wheel shake. The tarmac on this track looks amazing (well done) but with no feeling from the wheel it feels strange seeing that tarmac that has a lot of small visual bumps and still is completely flat FFB wise. Many of us never drive tracks without the mesh as it feels very "dead", like an old sim. Im sorry if there IS a physical mesh, but its very flat feeling on the straights. Curves get "bumps" naturally from the edges/polys. I appreciate the effort obviously. Just wish track modders would add the last step to make it "AC quality". And since we use FFB wheels it really is needed for the best driving experience.

    Also, turn 6 & 7 have "wrong way sign" in practise.

    Amazing! Hopefully Kunos knows about this track so they don't have to waste resources making their own, they can make a different one, or just buy this one lol. Great work, thank you for your efforts.
