    Hello everybody,

    Here it is the main repository I know on rFactor Free Tracks:

    http://www.rfactorcentral.com/list.cfm?cat=Tracks

    You can select that you consider **the best** for you, tell me which, and I will convert the 3 best ones **for free** for you all.

    This is because I'm working (hard) on an utility that tries to convert, more or less automatically, an rFactor Track to a fully usable Racer Track. Kinda of a test, you know.

    Best Regards!

    Be careful, you need the permission of the authors of the tracks if you want to release the tracks for everybody!

    @OP: you have permissions to do these conversions?

    Well, finally NOT... Because I had permission for two tracks, BUT apparently, they were INAUTHORIZED CONVERSIONS from the original ones (which was created for GTL).

    But now, after some e-mails, these originals seem not to be really originals, as they were converted previosuly from GTR (!).

    So, in this very moment I do not have permission because I don't even know who was the original creator O_O.

    Just convert them but release them elsewhere ;)

    The rules need to be adhered to here, but I guess the track originates from a commercial one somewhere along the line, so I'd not worry too much if the track is from a 5yr old game. They will be selling it for £1 these days in bargain bins so not like anyone is gonna lose out a great deal if you convert it for Racer :D

    Ie, the old Ring versions up until a few years ago were all based off the GPL one, yet were distributed everywhere, hmmmmm...
