Since I finally have something nice to show, I’m extremely happy to announce my track project: Le Circuit Mont-Tremblant (St-Jovite) 1969 in Canada. It has been an obsession of mine to get this track done properly with the narrow, dangerous, and very bumpy original layout where nearly every corner is blind. I have been at it for years (on and off) collecting historical pictures (must be close to 1000!), videos, going to see races there and take reference pictures. After several unsuccessful attempts various software, I think this is finally the good one (got to learn 3D modelling the proper way with Blender). Getting to learn everything needed is complex and time consuming, but thanks to the forum resources here at ACM (and a lot of motivation!), I’m finally there. Getting (at last!) a high resolution aerial picture from the 70’ got me back at it this time (no lidar available yet, not until 2019 I’m told). Picture below is not full res ;-) Background information The track was a huge success in 60’s and nearly every big series made a stop there. So just to name a few : CanAm ‘66, ’67, ’69, ’70, ’71, ’77, .78 Formula 1 ‘68 and ‘70 SCCA Trans-Am, ’68, ’69, ’70, ’71, ’77, ‘78 F5000 ’69, ‘70 The late 60’s was really the golden era not only for the high profile races but also popularity. Every race weekend was one giant outdoors party with huge crowds. Hopefully I can bring back some of that feel to the simracing world. The track phased out of top level racing in the 70’s due to very legitimate safety concerns, very bad condition of tarmac, oil crisis, inadequate pit area and the long distance from Montreal. The opening of the Ile Notre-Dame Circuit in fall of 1978 (to be renamed Gilles Villeneuve) was the final blow. However, the Circuit Mont-Tremblant maintained a high reputation amongst drivers who loved its tricky corners and wild elevation change. There was still a lot memorable racing in the 80’s with Porsche Cup and other national series, at which time (as a teen) it really caught my imagination. The 2000-2001 rebuild by Laurence Stroll saved the track from demise and brought it back to modern standards. There were changes made, as little as possible, to make it a lot safer. They did an amazing job, still I can’t help thinking some of the wild and raw landscape got diluted along the way, I hope to recapture it with this virtual version. This is my first track, please be patient, I'm aiming for quality here, it should be worth it. Here's a couple of shots of my first lap.
