    This is the modification of the one of the most legendary tracks in Gran Turismo history: Red Rock Valley Speedway from GT2

    The course has been modified to avoid figure 8 crossing which this Track Designer doesn't allow but in the end I think that I captured overal look and feel of RRVS

    Here is the original layout

    And here is my first modification

    On the end I got Death Valley Speedway
    Maximal bank angle + maximal width = Maximal speed

    (just like RRVS)
    It is almost possible to drive whole track without lifting leg from accelerator pedal
    (try it - there is is just corner #2 and #7 where you have to slow down a bit)

    It is possible to drive this 5.0km (3.11mi) track under 55 seconds
    I almost did it in my Red Bull below
    (I just did few laps though to make this video: I believe you can do even better)

    - ver 1.2: finalized the first presentable version and posted it
    - ver 1.3: on suggestion of some members changed bank angle to very steep

    - ver 2.2: minor scenery changes

    Ver 2.0 and beyond
    Red Rock Valley Speedway Twin, that tries to capture look and feel of Red Rock Valley Speedway is undergoing through some changes

    1. The name is being rebranded to Death Valley Speedway (I checked this name in the database - it's still available, nobody has taken it yet)

    2. The scenery will be changed as well (this is still pending)

    So far I was promoting this track as: "Captured spirit of Red Rock Valley Speedway from GT2 - the layout might not be the same but the feeling is!"

    The changes from above are intended to intensify that feeling even furtheremore and bring the track even closer Red Rock Valley Speedway from GT2 (until PD releases a fix, if they ever do that, where we will be able to do figure 8 crossing and create a real twin of Red Rock Valley Speedway)

    It delivers what it promises, even if we wish we could have the whole track with more accuracy in desert and sunset.

    A fantastic track I highly recommend this track as the author is right it does feel like you are driving around the Red Rock Valley track. The track is well designed and easy on the eye as not to cluttered, well done Bruno
