    Sorry to ask here, but I do it anyhow.
    There is a guy oploading tracks to the workshop (5 at the moment) He hasn´t made the tracks, he just write he likes the tracks. Have I misunderstood the purpos of the workshop?
    I´m not going into war, but I just thinks it´s a waste of space, and the new original items drown in old tracks beeing uploaded again.
    I could be nice if there was a categori where modders could upload their original work.
    I don´t want 20 uploads of Le Mans, just because someone think it´s a great track. (it is :)

    I agree and the Mugello I believe is ripped from AC, should not be posted. I don't think he should post any of them he's not the author and I'm pretty sure he doesn't have authors permission.

    So it appears he has cracked the DLC copy protection. Two cars are listed there with those tracks.

    LeMans is the VLM 91-96
    Nurburgring looks like the ISI version
    Nords is exm_nords (AC Rip?)
    Spa is exm_spa (AC Rip?)
    Sebring is VLM
    Mugello is AC rip
    Imola is @senormen 1.2 version

    Thanks everybody for reporting this. User has been banned from further uploads to the workshop and the content was taken down.

    Thank you very much. While we're on it would it be possible to introduce categories to the workshop?
    So it makes stuff easier to search and find. Will probably also help new guys using rFactor2

    "I am not the original author just adding this fun track to the workshop."

    This should set off piracy alarm bells for starters.
