Description (Click to toggle Visibility)

Located near the German city of Mainz, the former US Army Airfield was used as a DTM and DRM venue from 1984 until 1990.

The temporary 2.25 kilometer race track comes with lots of surrounding details and animated objects, it’s available both as dry and wet version.


- real racing line, getting off it means griploss and dusty trackparts
- 3D garage/pitspots
- anti-cutting-measures
- 1989 style environment, adboards and cameraset just like it was back then
- modeled bumps (mixed with some fake ones)
- lots of moving and animated stuff
- moveable tirestacks (only the iner ones in the corners)
- race signals via flagmarshalls (no lights!)
- textures from real photography

Hard to believe it's been 3 years since Com8 released this... still feels refreshingly good to race!

I just wanted to say that it's an awesome track, great work Com8 ! (As always )

I only have one issue... Every time I get near that damn gigantic TV, I experience lag... Which is quite annoying to be honest, so does someone have any tips on how to get rid of that TV please ?

Thansk Com8.

Now Mainz Finthen works and so does Hockenheim 79. Also, QR and a couple of GP79 tracks now have grey/black track surface instead of brilliant white and Oulton Park has a nice blue sky with a couple of clouds instead of blue/white or blue/black pin stripes.

However, graphics quality in the showroom has dropped. Are there any other problems i should look out for with this change?

cheers, David.

I'm experiencing problems, a rather peculiar bug with Race Time Scale enabled(Time Acceleration on 60x). The problem comes with sky textures, it seem the skies are virtually incorect (night sky lasts from 23:00PM to 1:00AM, sunrise sky comes at 1:00AM and day time sky at 5:00AM, all approximatly), also the transition from one sky to another is abrupt(not smooth at all). Is it just me or does anyone have the same issue? Help?
