Thanks for the 5 * rating!
You know my friend, you got me, 'WOW', what an exciting new update to this track of yours. I'm absolutely blown away with how good the elevation change, yes, spot on. Wonderful track Patrick, you can count on me, I'll keep this. I did a lap time of '1:46.806' using the "GT-R NISMO GT3 NISSAN GT Academy Team RJN '13 with special tune by RIDOX. WOW, WOW, I recommend all of you to download Patrick's track 'Portimao'. Cheers my friend, gt6champnk69, @KISMOZZT231 Replica Garage

Thanks for this overwhelming review! I'm really proud that you like the update that much.
Wide, smooth with neat curbs and helpful scenery. The real circuit is quite a rollercoaster and this captures the feeling well.

Would you revisit it using the newer tools to get the elevation more like the real track? It's a bit too extreme in this version. Particularly the banking effect at corner exits. Perhaps you would force it into Death Valley scene to get the hot and dusty surroundings?

More grandstands outside of the penultimate turn would help make it look different from the various hairpins. The entry looks sharp and the striped outside wall matches the earlier hairpins. But it opens out a lot at the exit, so a way to tell it apart more easily would be welcome.

BMW 320i Touring Car, all power parts and oil change but no turbo, RH tyres, loose tune. Single Race, Professional opponents, 10 laps. Narrow win against Alfa Romeo 155 super touring monster with a Renault 5 Turbo just a few seconds behind.

Thanks for the review!
Your words encouraged me to try updating the replica by using the no checks/ free homestraight apk to achieve an even more realistic elevation. We'll see how that turns out and if the result is good I'll update the resource.
nice track.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Enjoyable track for slow cars, an excercise in throttle control for fast cars. The Torre VIP hairpin is especially tricky, i also like the plunge into the Portimao corner! Primeira is quite a feat with fast road cars, jump included. Good job!

Thanks for your review! Those 3 mentioned turns are exactly my favourite parts as well. The elevation of Portimao corner is different from original but as you described it well the plunge can be a nice thrill.
As usual, Patrick 8308 has chosen a very interesting track to re-create here! It's somewhat unusual a track, even looking at the real-life track photos! The undulations in the real life track photo surprised me! It turned out to be exciting for racing! Though I myself found it difficult. It seems to demand expert timing to get some turns "just right". However, even when things got a bit messy, the width of the track prevented most mayhem, so that's a distinct plus on a difficult track! There's plenty of track to use... to gain time, or avoid crashing! LOL :D Bravo!

Thanks for that interesting review. Actually the undulations in the original track have been fascinating me all the time and for that reason I wanted to create a representative replica. The track might be quite difficult but I guess that makes it a challenge. And usually challenges aren't boring. ;-)
Execelent job.

Excellent track! I'll use it directly in my HOTT series.

Thank you!
This track look just amazing. Extremely well done, especially the elevation, I find them very fun, but also challenging. I myself have made this track, but in Eifel flat, and is very satisfied with mine.
But this one cracks. The best created track on Track Path Editor so far. Thanks for sharing.

Excellent choice on where to place this track in the Eifel theme. It's just amazing to see how you managed to get some of those elevations right.
