Description (Click to toggle Visibility)

A realistic fantasy track with an Arizona type feel.

A long time dream to have any type of desert track in a sim came to light when Vorra44 and I started talking about the need to have Baja's and Buggies in rFactor.

The track is 100% BTB Built (including the terrain - Pre-terrain editor version) and the fine tuning and objects are being done with 3dSimEd ...


5 Tracks included:


Desert Mesa "PRO" Short Course (both directions)
- these 2 tracks are challenging and difficult, requiring constant "on and off" accelerator control and a good setup in gearing and suspension.

Not recommended for non-Off-Road Vehicles. 100 Mile race is 47 laps of pure adrenaline ... 100K is 30 laps ...

Desert Mesa "Novice" Short Course (both directions)
- these two tracks are not really Novice tracks (more like a sportsmen type track) but tend to be more geared for those who want to race off-road and not be discouraged too quickly.

Suitable for a wide range of vehicles.

Desert Mesa (long course)
- Signature 3.17 Mile "extreme" course. Made primarily for the VORRA Mod, but the ORR2/WCORR can handle it

(the Baja go with this track like "Peas & Carrots" ... )

Reverse direction is not possible due to the "Saw Tooth" Triple Jump ...


Tracks still to be considered are:


Desert Mesa Road Course(s) - Long and short version (depends on how I feel and amount of work that it requires. Also on the amount of feedback and interest is shown.)


Update V1.03:


Fixed xFinish.GMT ERROR

Changed track venue in GDB file. Track starts under "VORRA"
