    I've downloaded the track but can't seem to extract the contents of the file. I just get a corrupt file message. Any thoughts?

    Can I suggest to upload files sites accept rfmods rather then compress them.

    Idea is to drop it straight into packages like Abriel's torrent.

    Better yet just give it to Abriel before release and save yourself the Hassle

    Then post torrent link at your site you help others with all tracks.


    :)

    I've been to this race track twice for the Indy Cart cars very loud very epic and you should check out there Kiosks best hotdog's ever, I am part of the checkered flag club there where we get are very own tent bar,BBQ,open buffet,T.V, heh, It's funny you go there and end up watching the race on the T.V, To loud in the seats behind pit lane, and you really have no idea who is winning the race cuz no guy on T.V telling you or cam's following the leader, just every few seconds a random car will come around the corner for just one second and gone again in another second, much better to watch races on a T.V then in real, could be different at other tracks but this is the only one I've ever been to in real, other then small local dirt tracks those don't count thou, Thanks for this maybe i can find my club tent :D

    Just gave it a try and it has the feel you are in Toronto thats a good thing the feel of the place is there good start hope it gets better bit bumpy but you prolly know that and other's i wont mention as this is wip.

    Are you going to implement this garage? In real life it is where the cars are pushed out from, To the pits, You could start us from inside that building like they do for real, so we don't just start right there on pit road, more immersion this way i think.

    Thank you

    Very nice work! But it still lacks truly HDR profiles.

    With HDR, it is very bright!

    It can be difficult to follow any race at a road course because you can't typically see the entire course. That being said, it's still 100 times better than watching it on TV; the ambiance is just bliss.

    The indycars aren't loud anymore, though :( The new cars are so damned quiet. I live basically right beside the course and I couldn't even hear them on Friday and Saturday (only went on Sunday this year).

    And about the bumps; many drivers complain about Toronto; it's by far the bumpiest circuit on the calendar (probably due to Detroit being missing for years, it's worse). And I'm not surprised, our roads are crap.

    I doubt the garage location will be changed. That would make it so a road behind the grandstands would be needed to avoid the AI giving you a wrong direction DQ getting on pit road (or you'd have to do a whole lap and re-enter the pits).

    I have yet to master the art of getting the HDR profiles to work without them adding weird colors. If anyone wants to contribute, please feel free, you will get full credit. my email is and always will be doug at idtsimulations.com

    "It can be difficult to follow any race at a road course because you can't typically see the entire course. That being said, it's still 100 times better than watching it on TV; the ambiance is just bliss".

    Agree nothing can match the real sounds and feeling of being there in person.

    "And about the bumps; many drivers complain about Toronto; it's by far the bumpiest circuit on the calendar (probably due to Detroit being missing for years, it's worse). And I'm not surprised, our roads are crap".

    True I've never drove on the track or won the draw to go out with the pace car but I could imagine the bumps on this track heh.

    "I doubt the garage location will be changed. That would make it so a road behind the grandstands would be needed to avoid the AI giving you a wrong direction DQ getting on pit road (or you'd have to do a whole lap and re-enter the pits)".

    Cool just a thought I had, Had no idea what it would take to implement that thanks for reply :D

    Fun track, thank you very much!

    One thing I noticed was after the track got heavily rubbered in, the rubber takes on an extremely angular pattern.

    Happy New Year!
