Description (Click to toggle Visibility)

A new version of my ThunderBolt Raceway.
In this version I did some needed updates on the scenery files. Changed some of the elevations and added a new bridge and a new Race Control Building that looks more like the actual building. I also tweaked the AIW files.

I would like to thank Frank Borg for designing and creating the Race Control Building.

this track is pretty good except for the fact that the Ai drivers are very bad at driving this track, i can do a 1.16 compared to a 1.27(in a toyota atlantic)i obviously could try and compensate for that with skill level but then i can't run a regular championship with it. other than that its pretty great hope you try lightning and the kart circuit next.

Just a heads-up for anyone planning to use this for hosting races. There's a error on this track somewhere in the grass outside of T1. I went really wide on a practice lap and that lap wasn't scored (the result was that rF recorded me doing one a laptime 2x as long as it should). Also in a league race, one car was out-of-control and hit the armco on the outside of T1. His car was then stuck teleporting back and forth from a position on the track and 1/2 way inside the armco.

Overall, it's a good track but race hosts should be aware of potential issues that will screw up results and/or annoy the racers.

all the links don't work can anyone re add it through media fire?

Thanks for all your comments. If anyone would like to add to or rework this track, you're welcome to try it. I've went just about as far as I can. Please contact me at
I know the track needs the water tower, the flag stand and other buildings. I'll give you all I have as far as BTB files.

Here is a real-life full lap video in 1080p. I hope it helps with further development of the track.

Hate to bring up an old thread, but I live 10 mins. away from the track in Millville, been to two races at the facility, and I must say, you are pretty close with the layout. Nice work!

i've raced at thunderbolt a lot and this is a really good track I was wondering if you would think about building lightning because it's a really good track.

There were a few people that approached me asking to convert this track to GTR2. So far I haven't seen any.
