Can I convert this track to F1 Challenge '99-'02?

How nice you all have been racing this track. I have all possibilities trying to install it - it does´nt work... Regards!

This is the link for the latest version of the track (track 4 - without the kink by the 2nd pit area)... Only problem I have difficulty in getting the AIW to work properly and now rFactors freezes when in the week-end racing mode, but ok for practicing...

Just unpack the file to the Location/Taupo2008 folder... If anyone can sort out the problem would be great... I will be gone for a while and no time to sort this out. Thanks

cars don't follow grid slots they go in a straight line through the pit wall?
any ideas

Hi Kaspa, the official web site shows different track layouts.. I took the one from Google earth. Do you have a plan view of the correct layout that you can send me?

absolutly fantasic , i can now get in some more practise and hopefully get my PB down a tad, only dissapointment is the track layout still follows the old configuration with the dogleg between turn 7 and 9 which has now been altererd to make turn 9 the fastest corner on the track, is there any posibility of updating this. other wise very impressed
cheers Kaspa

Please use the latest download link under ..: "Taupo2008 rev. 1.0"
or directly from
I'm still learning a lot about AIW files and originally I had major problem with this track..
Does anyone have a link to a Forum dedicated to this AIW file?
GBP on Jun-08-2009

Very nice work on the track.

A couple of problems I see though are the AIW don't pit in their stalls during practice and the grid itself only holds 19 cars.

The garages hold quite a few cars which is good.

Would it be possible to make the grid bigger to allow for more cars to race?
