    Hello Everyone, This is my second scratch built track for Assetto Corsa. I wanted this one to be as accurate as I possibly could make it, but also by using some artistic licence to recreate the feeling of the place (and hopefully some of the magic i was hoping to capture). I spent hours researching all the information I could find from the internet, videos, pics, magazine articles etc, a lot of people here helped by sending me these so many thanks.

    Most of the tracks height data is taken from the current lidar data and then cross referenced with all the existing parts of the modern day layouts (from all the sims) but bare in mind there was a lot of guess work involved.

    For track widths and old sections, I took a trip to Donington with my tape measure and theodolite and walked and shot images of the old Melbourne hairpin (which still exists) and measured as much as I could in the limited time I was allowed to walk around those areas.

    There are still a few things to do hence the 0.9 version, the trees need shadow planes adding (especially in the wooded areas - so avoid racing at 12 noon for now it will look kinda ugly) AI will probably need tweaking (if any body is game for this let me know) and bugs - let me know

    About - Please watch this Video - Explains more than I possibly could here - it will also get you hyped no doubt

    Love it, one of the best Tracks ever! I feel the adrenalin coming up, the car drives like a rabbit at 300 km/h, never relaxing on the wheel!

    Extremely nicely done, detailed historic circuit. Dangerous as hell with jumps and such.
    Only negative thing are the performance drops at some parts like the forest sections.
    Would like to see other layouts too in the future if that is a possibility.

    Beautiful track, a bit too FPSy at the grid but never the less an awesome track, nostalgic, the first track to make me want to break out those old formula cars like the Lotuses

    Outstanding!
    It captures the feel of a long past era in Motorsport, and is a great 'Country Drive' circuit as well.

    Amazing track, fast and dangerous, love the visuals and road feel, thanks for bringing this into AC!
    My only suggestion is to improve the optimization, even with a single car on practice, some parts during replay drops the FPS from 60 to 30.
