Does somebody know which legal conversions of Aussie tracks are available for RACE 07?

Euhm Melbourne I think, I have it installed but not sure if it's legal... (Was used in one of the first FD series race on RSC)

I have read that someone has been doing it (or has done it) but it is not considered a legal conversion (awaiting approvals) because it's done from the Codemasters track.

I think that conversion approval is the main problem with most of the Aussie tracks.

Yes Codemaster still holds the license for the V8 supercars. Too bad that codemasters isnt interested in building real racing games. Could be even a bigger hit then WTCC to have those cars scratch build by SimBin

Yep, real shame.
I could almost guarantee that a V8 Supercar addition to Race 07 would be a huge hit in Aus and NZ, and probably all over the world.

Oh well! I can only dream about it. In the meantime, everybody over here has to make do with rFactor V8 Mod or GTR2 mods.
I don't think Codemasters will ever make a descent V8 Supercar game, and I'm sure they are now only interested in console games anyway.
What a waste of a great license.

Trust me, Mates, V8 Supercars would hit it BIG here in the States.... It's what keeps me sane during the winter. It's about the only decent r/r series the Nascar (excuse me- The SPEED) network televises..... I'M also dying to run Bathurst in Race 07

REAL racing also involves turning RIGHT
