Situated in the heart of Sweden and close to the small town of Sveg, this track extends over the lake Svegssjön as one of its most characteristic features. The lake and the surrounding hills, thick forests, and open fields make for a great atmosphere in the most idyllic Swedish landscape. For one of the two passes over the lake, it uses the 505, a long uphill straight connecting the small village of Herrö to the Härjulfs väg. While these two roads and the 505's bridge were widened for motor racing, the rest of the track was built from scratch. From a driver's point of view, Sveg Raceway is characterized by its long straights, sweeping high-speed turns, and slower 90 degree turns. The flowing layout is challenging and fun at the same time, provides plenty of overtaking opportunities, and manages to feel appropriate for road and race cars of any class. The pit lane can comfortably host up to 14 teams, and features enough space for races of up to 32 cars.

Latest update, June 28, 2019:
Today, night lighting is introduced as the core new feature in Sveg Raceway 1.2. A lot of work was put into this track once again to further improve its look and and feel. Thanks also to the work of Peter "SOL" and Ilja "CSP", Sveg Raceway is now more beautiful than ever, day or night.

Yeah I've been on and off this project for years. I recently revisited the place to take pictures for textures and I think it shows :)

what? Did not expect to see this ever again :D (old thread for the uninitiated: http://www.assettocorsa.net/forum/index.php?threads/sveg-sweden.11011/)
Oh my, I actually forgot about this project :laugh: I liked the OP but didn't make the connection in my head.

What you show in the video looks very nice to my amateurish eyes already. Good luck and all the motivation you need to finish the track. I'm looking forward to it.

Being so close to the finish line is probably what keeps me motivated the most. My to do list is only about one A4 page long currently :)

I could use some advice: Instead of the currently displayed Logos on the Track (Yokohama, Volvo, etc.) I think it would be cool to get in touch with companies from the sim racing world and put up their logos. For this I'd be interested to hear which companies you've had pleasant communication with. So far I'm thinking Kunos, Heusinkveld and GT Omega. Alternatively, Swedish companies with connections to the automotive industry. There is lots of space for banners :)

I wouldn't go overboard with "virtual" companies, like on original Kunos Highlands it may just look "wrong" or too artificial (like NFS Shift track plastered with EA advertising), better opt for more of those swedish companies.

But about sim companies, these guys probably won't say no to a free ad on your track https://www.facebook.com/fitechmotorsport/ ...

That has more to do with repetitive usage of one brand than the type of brand.

I believe Lemax tried it on one of his tracks, offering 'real' advertising. Good idea if you ask me, not sure if it worked out in the end though.

Make sure you utilize the variation texture. Looks unnatural without it.
Hey LilSki, nice seeing you around here. Thanks for the advice, and I will take another look at it (there's one in there but I may not be using it to its full potential yet). If you have more advice for me on how to improve the looks of the track I'm happy to hear it!

This will be like a Le Mans circuit competitor? I don’t see this track working with a lot of cars because of the straights. Looks really nice and AI am looking forward.

I'm not sure if it's suited for large multiclass-fields, I didn't make it with that in mind.
Or what exactly do you mean by "Le Mans competitor"?
