Is anyone making the new the bend motorsport park track?
I hope so (any Aussie track release is good in my book!), it looks fairly flat with minimal elevation changes though, hard to grasp the flow of the circuit from this Bike Onboard but it looks fairly decent:
There is a video of the v8 layout in this story about the track. Seems to have a nice flow.
Will be there in a few weeks to watch the ASBK and Asian SBK series
I'm working on licensing at the moment, all going well it'll be out before the V8 round.
Hi, GTVirus. Just wanted to ask is there any progress on this (even a WIP release?). V8s are due to run there weekend of 24th August and I have a mate who races in the V8 support GT86 series who wants to use my RF2 for a bit of practice before the event.
Australia's newest track and the worlds second longest purpose build race track , second only to Nordschliefe !
S397 , can we expect a Laserscanned version in rF2 , lol
Actually it doesn't look all that large(I didn't see the actuall full length in my short search)....and it's unfortunately flat. In the US, we have a similar venue, Miller Motorsport Park in Utah. Hot dry Desert locatiion with just a little elevation change.
Sorry, you are 100% wrong.
Having visit the track this year for the Aussie Superbikes, the track in it's full config is 7.77km or 4.8 miles long & has many elevation changes. Then there is the 4WD & rally tracks, drift & kart tracks and a drag strip!
The blurb from the website: At 7.77 kilometres in its maximum configuration, The Bend combines technical corners, fast flowing sections and an aggregate rise and fall of 85 metres to ensure exciting racing and an enjoyable drive. The track design is unique in offering 8 circuit configurations constructed with all forms of motorsport in mind.
I do know Sector 3 are looking to licence the track.
I didnt find that thread , can mine be moved over there ?
Well I stand corrected. But it really does remind me of Miller MP. Depending upon the cars racing, some of the courses at Miller are so twisty there is rarely an overtaking opportunity. Much as I dislike most of the F1 Tilke designed circuits, a track like Cota provides several passing areas each lap. Also, again just referencing Miller....it is HARD to learn a track like these when so many sections of the track resemble previous sets of corners. Hopefully a trackbuilder will take a good look at it though.
Hi GT Virus, I was just wondering if you have made any progress on the track. I will be racing there in a couple of weeks time and was hoping to do some practice before hand. Cheers
I hope someone is making it since I am sure that sim racing leagues would like to use this track
Just watching first practice, the track looks good, decent amount of small elevation changes. Turn 13 (modelled off Oran Park) looks fun as does the long right hander of 8,9,10 I think it is.
Very technical circuit by the looks of it, always busy on a long circuit with only the front straight to rest.
There's a wip atm.
Here's a leaked vid...
Looks like it would make an excellent low tier open wheel circuit GP3 . FR 3.5 , F2 etc . Elevations are nice although could really do with something in the infield , few rows of trees , giant crow , just something
I can't make head nor tail out of the Australian planning application website. Can someone who understands the website, please post a link to the pit building drawing pdf.
Note, GT Virus's version may not be coming
what is happening with this now I wonder
He's only making it for AC, as the track mesh density is to low for rFactor2.
