Darlington Park (working title) progress

I have already moved to my next project, Darlington Park and as you can see, I am a busy bee lately.

I am not yet sold on the name 'Darlington Park. It is named after the basic circuit I found HERE at Gdecarli however I am an Australian and not a fan of circuits set around our landscape as a whole. Why, you might ask. Well I grew up in a very lush and beautiful area out of Sydney known as the Southern Highlands. Sadly not very much of Australia looks as this does. It is dry and the grass looks as cornflakes does if you were to put some in the oven. I prefer the greenery of Europe, which is why I have placed rolling farming hills around the circuit. It is much more appealing visually than the dry stuff Australia is known for.

Anyway, I am known for making circuits that while are based on actual real world locations, they do not resemble them down to a fine tooth and nail level. Darlington Park, will be just that. It will be a late 1980s early 1990s circuit with a 1960s and early 1970s feel. I do these sort of circuit predominately as I love the 1990s and 1980s Formula One eras more than any other and the Rfactor mods of this time are mostly outstanding and a joy every time you press 'race'.

Darlington Park is still a little while off. I am aiming to release it some time in the coming fortnight, however with my worldly commitments, time shall tell if I am able to stick to this plan.

Have a good look at the pictures, as even though it is likely to change a fair amount, the basic layout will not alter.
