  1. Hi
    Maybe someone can take to build a first fast race track in the Soviet Union?
    Unfortunately, the same is no possibility to build, but would like to virtually ride along this route!
    Perhaps I can help with any information. Currently, the availability of solidarity, but the only version GRAND PRIX LEGEND in the game.
    Think of this track configuration will appeal to users of rFactor. Thank you in advance enterprising and knowledgeable people in this case.
