    Probably my favorite historic track I've run on during my 'simracing career'. There are some differences, for sure, between this and any previous historic versions of the track you may have raced on, but we believe ours is pretty accurate, and that's another reason why this is being posted so you can get used to it.

    Remember: This is WIP. This historic track is in development. We want those of you who are historic racing fans (or fans of the movie "Grand Prix" I guess) to see it as soon as possible - so here it is. I used the front bumper cam so that you can see similarities from old footage like that in the movie. You will see draw and animation issues in this video that do not represent the drawing and animation qualities of the release version of rFactor 2. Also: No audio - stop trying to turn up the volume. :)

    I pull out of the pit area and head towards Eau Rouge on lap one. The first lap was difficult and the car wanted to spin (mostly too much throttle from me). Lap two felt much faster but having crashed many times while trying to record the video I never pushed too hard. You can actually see at some points when I come out of the turns I struggle to put the power down.

    Driving and seeing this should give you a massive appreciation for what those maniacs who raced here were risking... They raced here at night in touring car races, amazingly dangerous...

    I just drove and hit F9 when I wanted to capture video. Scott and the rest of the guys have done an awesome job. I know much watching of Grand Prix was involved. :)

    There's a couple WIP elements that may be of interest that you can see in this video. First is the mirage effect--it's not hooked up to any controlling factors yet--it's just "on" for now. The other is that the direct lighting is changing as clouds pass in front of the sun...

    Dig the mirage effect. At first, I couldn't figure out if that was what that was or some artifact from the WIP track.... Great videos, both the WIP footage and the Grand Prix footage. Hard to tell the difference between the two. :)

    I actually thought that was exactly what it was, but it seems the guys have already started work on another lighting effect. :)
