Darlington Park 1995

I decided some time ago to rework my Darlington Park circuit into a longer circuit. The 1992 layout is 4.449km and now I have extended the length to 4.863km. While the length is only 414 metres longer than the original, it now has two high speed straights. Have a race around the new layout which can be downloaded from NoGripRacing HERE. I have included my original 1992 layout so you can compare. Let me know which version you prefer and upload a video of yourself driving around!

From the Readme:

Darlington Park 1995

Darlington Park 1995 is an updated layout of my 1992 Darlington Park circuit. This new layout has extended the total length by 414metres from 4.449km to 4.863km.
The new layout utilities more of the land available to the circuit by adding two high speed straights.
The first of these two new straights follows the old 1970s layout, (which you might have seen while racing around the 1992 layout), before turning right to form the next new long straight.
The pit area has been moved to the northerly part of the circuit along the flat between the original start / finish turn and the final turn. The old start / finish turn is now a clear turn 1.
Ultimately, the old circuit was 4.449km and high speed with a total of 12 turns. Now the 1995 layout is 4.863km yet still has 12 turns.
However arguably two of the turns have double apexes making the unofficial total 14 turns. Be sure to try both layouts (which are included in this package) and tell me which is your favourite.
Includes two versions :

Darlington Park 1992 v1.01
Darlington Park 1995 v1.00

- AI. Some mods, notably the 1994 F1 mod, the AI run into the sand traps very easily, while other mods such as CTDP 2005 AI don't suffer this problem. I can't fix this for all mods.
Darlington Park 1992 v1.01
- Minor graphical changes
- Minor AI tweaks
- Minor camera tweaks

Darlington Park 1995 v1.00
- Initial release.

If you enjoy racing on my tracks, please consider making any small donation to my paypal on my blog. It often takes me a long time to make these circuits for the community and I really appreciate all donations.
Thank you.

Remove all instances of the old Darlington Park (V1.00) from your Rfactor/Locations directory. Then copy over the Darlington Park folder from this zip.

rfactor/gamedata/locations/... (

It is that Easy!

Enjoy folks!
