    First up this is a TRIBUTE to what was one of Australia's most technical and challenging tracks, that sadly was demolished in early 2009 to make may for a new housing estate.

    Here is a Tribute video for Oran Park and what has helped keep me going.



    Most of you interested in this track will know that I have done a conversion of this track already, and maybe thinking whats going on another one...why? Well I was trying to make the that track as accurate as I could but the track it self was in accurate. So I decided to make the track myself and really give a tribute to the track, particularly as I really have a soft spot for this track. I went there a handful of times as a kid and was there at the final race. (just wish I knew then I was going to end up building it when I visited the track) :) The track is loosely based on the final V8 supercar race in December 2008. It was difficult to find most of the sponsors images used back then so I have made majority of the textures. I have used a few ISI objects otherwise I have remade all objects except for a couple which I'm working on.

    Cams are done and AIW isn't that bad. I set the AI fast lap and I can't catch them at 120% :) (so I guess thats how it should be)

    I'm now at a stage where the track is nearly finished and need the feedback from you guys.

    rF2 Features included so far:
    Car reflections
    RealRoad
    BillBoard Trees
    Billboard Bushes
    New Terrain Shader
    Animated Cornerworkers, PitWorker, CameraMen, Flags
    3d Trees
    Night Lighting

    OK the wait is over :) New update

    Looks great Nibiru many thanks for creating this splendid track. One question that's probably answered elsewhere, but are you doing all the Layouts or just the main Figure-8 one?

    Excuse my ignorance... I had no idea it had been demolished... What a sad thing... Almost as sad as Owl City. I hate him with a passion.
    Seriously though that was a nice track! Toca and rF1 exposed me to it way back.

    Although technically not gone......Calder Park, with the stock car mod soon, a Thunderdome would be good too lol.

    There are a lot of these tracks available for RF1 that could be converted to RF2, especially Warwick Farm and Surfers Paradise etc, just need the knowledge lol, imagine a Tasman series or a Gold Star..............

    Thanks for all your work Nibs and eagerly awaiting the release of this great track. :cool:

    Now if someone could do Lakeside, don't know what happened to Mike Cantwell's effort but there has been no news for ages. :(

    Looking good :) there are so many good quality tracks out there, that it's obvious imo that almost only quality tracks are used nowadays.
