Hello, all.

I thought you might be interested in my recent project to add to the Formula Atlantic mod. I have started construction of Gimli Raceway. This will be a 2016 version of the track.

Work in progress.

I am a new member as of today and I have to wait seven days to insert picture links?

Is there another way to post pictures without URL?

Cheers.

Thank you, David. But I'm not seeing the icon.

Am I to look in my first post under edit?

Cheers.

At the moment, I do not have rF2. However, Once I have the track finished and released, Anybody can take it and convert it to rF2.

Ok, It's been a week. Lets see if I can upload images now.

Looks like it works now. Smile

Here is some more detail progress for Gimli. It's coming along nicely. The scaling is perfect at 1.3 miles around and the widths of track surfaces are dialed in. Lap times are right on the money.

Yes, thank you for this lovely FF mod you have created, David. In fact, the whole reason I am building this track is for my brother to train with during winter.

He has just finished restoring a 1970 Hawke DL28 and finally got it on the track at Gimli this last summer. The lap times and shift points are right on target.

Cheers.

The thing is, I did update the Formula Ford mod and it now includes a Hawke DL11 which was a 1973/74 car. There are 7 chassis in the Formula Ford mod now and I'm hoping that we can run a Formula Ford Festival here at HSO this next season.

I think that your brothers car is a DL2B. study Great to see it.

Yes indeed, David. My typo. DL2B is correct.

Is your updated FF mod available?

Here is some interesting stuff. One of my beta testers assisting with the build of the track races Formula V at Gimli. He has taken the Vintage Formula V mod and tweaked it to match his real life data. Tire grip (lateral G forces) and engine power (speed) all match now.

The image here is an overlay of both real life data and data from the simulation with MoTec.

That's pretty dang close. Perfect training tool for the winter now. Smile

The "M" (colored lines) are the real life. The "O" (Black line) are rFactor.
