    v2.0 Major Update

    - track length (6.520 m) now only ca. 5 m off original length
    - route revised - completely new drawn track: every radius and straight length is now just about original
    - track width reduced from 12 to 10 m to capture original width (averagely 9 - 10 m) better
    - the elevation changes are now spot on
    - the height levels and slopes throughout a lap are virtually correct
    - every corner, every braking zone feels just right


    Here's an original onboard lap to understand the undulations.




    v1.0 Release Notes:

    Track length and elements



      • track length only 75 m off original
      • all element lengths measured in a Google Earth image
      • every radius and straight very close to original
    Curbing and Scenery



      • all original curbs placed plus some extra curbs for better racing
        (entries of T1, T3, T6, T7, T8, T12, T14)
      • stands close to original places
      • woods original where possible
        (e.g. Moraine Sweep, Carousel, Kettle Bottoms)
      • track gates at all the right places to represent real bridges and gates
      • some extra trees, track marshals and tents to create an alive circuit
    Elevation



      • not manageable to create the correct real elevation
        but:
      • close to original elevation in some track parts
        - downhill to T3
        - downhill to T5 (Moraine Sweep)
        - uphill T6
        - uphill T13
      • different from original but fun to drive parts
        - downhill to T1
        - downhill to T9
        - downhill to T12 (Kettle Bottoms)
    I'm pretty happy with the result!
    This circuit is fast, has some exciting incline and a wonderful scenery.
    I hope you enjoy driving this great track.

    Amazing recreation! Elevation seems perfect, and feels almost like the real thing (the only thing that felt wrong was the missing Covette overpass bridge). My family and I will be having tons of fun together on this track!

    Great track, the downhill runs and turns are tough to get right. A new appreciation for Road America! 2:06 lap in a GT3 is a real test.

    I really enjoy this track. Absolutely amazing how you have been able to hold the elevation steady, but at the same time enough up and downs in a very smooth way.
    I recommend all to try this track. Enjoyable and fun.

    Good job mate! Using the "Eifel" theme was a good idea ;)

      Thanks. Other versions on Eifel flat may be more accurate but my creation is probably closer to the original elevation at least in parts.

    Who cares if elevation changes aren't the same as real track? This is amazing and it's a lot of fun to drive here. Well done!
