    Wow, what a marvelous layout. Which year was that driven? I checked (with Race07/Rfactor) the 1970 and 1975 layouts but they differ from the GSCE histoci layout - must be a different year then. Especially to be seen on that first chicane.

    So, anyone here know what that great HISTORIC SPIELBERG track what year is and IF THIS eaxact layout is also available on either Rfactor 1/2 or Race07 or GTR 2 to be downloaded somewhere?

    Osterreichring's Hella-Licht "S" (chicane) was fully introduced in 1977 and that layout was used up until 1995. Later on A1 Ring was introduced, and after that Red Bull Ring which we have today.

    And this layout you can find in 1979 trackpack for rF1.

    That changed to 77 actually (1st year with the chicane). A version without the chicane (>76) might come in later as well.

    I don´t think you can compare to other sims as it´s not a layout that was ever properly researched for a game AFAIK. It´s one of the reasons we did it to begin with, it´s a track worth remembering :)

    Please do a 70s version without the chicane soon..... I am from Austria and ever wanted the fastest version in any sim. I know there are 70s version in RF but they are all not very accurate. TIA
