New Jersey Motorsports Park: Lightning course is a 1.9 Mile road course located in southern NJ in the town of Millville. It is built on the old Millville WWII Army airfield. It was built in 2008 along with the larger sister course Thunderbolt. The courses are named after the P-38 Lightning and P-47 Thunderbolt. This release only includes the Lightning course for now.

This is my third, scratch built, track for AC. This is my first time using aerial LiDAR data and is my first time building a track that still exists. I picked it for a few reasons. For one this is the very first time the Lightning course has been put into any sim. It is also the first track I personally have ever driven on in real life. It is a fun little course with some real high speed sections and works for just about any car.​

looks like the real race FIA take this track from you,perfect track,thank you so much.
Funny track ! Thank you !
A blast with the 289 cobra against other muscle cars. Thank you.
I strongly recommend trying this mod before you visit the track for a go at the real thing. It will make you faster.
Due to upcoming league race, I tested here for the first time and just fell in love with the layout, IRL and in AC. Exceptionally well done track mod for AC. While admiring the replays (as usual while testing tracks around) I decided to create additional TV cam files for it. Here's the link to the TV cams:

Thank you for this track. It's great that lesser known race tracks are getting attention and it's very well done.

Thanks for bringing this track to AC. I did not know about it, but it is a lot of fun to race. Excellent work.
Very fun little track!
Love the feeling of an informal setting this has, great track. Would love a lot more unknown circuits.
Has a great atmosphere.
Good job! The track is well, and good graphics.
Donation placed, small thanks for awesome work, much appreciated, much fun, uncommon and unappreciated track.
Thank you very much for making this track! I hope NJMP Thunderbolt is in the works because this is a gem like others have said. Great job!
Thank you, Ideal circuit for small vehicle or not too fast
Very accurate work. My only complaint is the unpaved bits at the edges of some parts of the track still behave like pavement.
i can't get enough to do a hotlap at this track! thanks so much. one of best AC track mod ever have.
This track is a gem. It's the only circuit I've driven this weekend. Deceptively simple, but the two elevation turns keep me entertained for hours. And of course, the quality is what you would expect from one of the top track makers.
