The Springvale suburb of Melbourne, Australia, is home to a rather special motorsport venue. 1.9ish miles of changing tarmac surfaces, suspension testing kerbs, long straights with punishing braking points, and the echos of the V8 supercars. This is, The Sandown Raceway. Inspiration to work on this circuit came a few months ago, with Daniel Ricciardo posting a video of him thrashing a Holden Sandman V8 round this track - which I retweeted at the time. Inspiration = Motivation. Discussion with @learie, originally allowed permission for a conversion of work completed a few years ago for rFactor, however since this discussion, his mod has been used more as a handy elevation tool, working side by side with Google Earth, to inform my rendition of Sandown. Thank you @learie for enabling me a little head start in this modding process. This is a work in progress thread where I can share my progress, others can input into the process, where feedback, improvements, issues and ideas can be made and methods can be shared etc. I have learnt a lot from my first expeditions in Modding (which I am still working on – that Rockingham mod will be completed) and there are a number of things I will do to push me further still. I’m going to think more about the process by describing the steps I do in #Method posts, give #Tips, maybe even tutorials too, and also [time notes] with the aim of firstly recording how much time goes into completing the project and secondly to focus my own mind to being time effective.
