"Top Gear" Test Track
My first go at trying to emulate the track owed by McLaren and used by the TV programme, Top Gear.

Hope you like it.

But Top Gear track have some deviation, as i know.. without this it is not TG track But anyway, thanks. It looks pretty good, did you any metering of car times for reality scales?
i took a UF1K around in 53 seconds. that is because the last section of the track leading into Gambon needs to be about 500 feet longer to make it 'real', making the turn where the fence is!

i will design a better version some time this week, as there are a couple of tweaks needed, like Hammerhead.

Thing is, fastest lap around their track was a minute-20something. The 'budget' car is usually around 1min~40. That's a lot of time to add to this track.

I made a version on my own and was doing about 50sec lap times in the UF1K, so I'm not sure what can be sone with the current 'blank' lots we get to work with.

On that note, is there any way to make a blank, all new course, or is that something only the developers are allowed to do? Can we request tracks? I wouldn't imagine a 1mile x 1mile square lot would be too much
How install this track?

You can't use layouts in demo
