Description (Click to toggle Visibility)

Latest version of Monza with updated textures and some extra remapping by MotorFX. This updated track is part of the gpc79 track series and will overwrite the earlier versions, so you will need to remove the earlier version and back it up, in case you wish to reinstall it...also credits to ISI for a few objects,

Version 2.5 updated now 2.6

tests of 79 championship and noticed quite a few things needed changing, some major and some slight..
so this version has new Aiw, old one appeared to cause some major spins for the ai at the Variante della Roggia and Variante Ascari, using some there was safety car issues.
altered some curbing to make for better racing,
repositiond some objects, and added extra objects, some extra bilboards, tree models, added shadows. added new textures to grass and road( road no longer the borrowed one from a "culmone67" update) trees, the towers, and some bilboards, reworked the bump and spec maps, to improve the look of the road, added some extra marshalls...
ignore the naming of the rar files,
For a anyone wishing to run it as a single track who does not have the rest of the gp79 track series?. you will need to create a folder "GPC79tracks" inside your rfactorlocations and drop 13_Monza folder in that..

please remove updated 2.5 and use this version..

RustyM is very right, i know him from this mod as well. I stand by his idea as well.
I would also love to see more people coming to this wonderful mod. Im still regularly online, Hunt's primarily. Running a GP79 championship again would be the best to me.

Superb updates to oster and monza! Great work! My friends and I still run 79 on 79 tracks on a daily basis (server: Hunt's and Myk Racing ) and continuously have amazing races and thrilling immersion. It would be a great thing if we could pack it all up into a 2.5 track pack and 2.5 cars with brabham sounds etc little fixes and addons all in one package. This way the almighty GP 1979 can be easily obtainable for all noobs. not to mention the Aurora series acts supremely as an entry level race sim! all in one package (or two : tracks and cars) that is key to keeping the most amazing race sim. ALIVE (it feels so real, there is enormous driver SATISFACTION!! ) !Viva '79!
