Absolutely love this track! However, i do have one problem with it. When driving in a multi-car practice or race, the AI cars have a nasty tendency to crash together in the Pit Tunnel. This leads to a extremely drastic frame-rate drop into the single digits. Can a change be made to the AI so this doesn't happen? Any thoughts on this matter would be very much appreciated. Other than that, the work that was done on this project is truly amazing. Well done !!!!!!!

Hi Birkuc i got a question, is it possible to make the tracklights turn out when they are not used?
Dj Noize on Feb-07-2011

well, momently there are no future plans in this project, mainly since LMT's came/stolen out, it seems we simply cant compete with theirs, btw I am pleased broadly with my latest release, I like it, and I play/use only mine
Birkuc on Aug-26-2010

Here also ask for something you do not publish. Birkut whether you're working on a newer version?

Yea yea, it's not to be passed out and bla bla bla, but it's not like I'm gonna sell it, I just want to drive it.. so if anyone would be nice enough, thanks!
