BREMGARTEN_54 SWISS GRAND PRIX – BERN -1954 – For rFactor v1.0
Track from scratch by Boblebric and NeelJani

Real track history :

The Circuit Bremgarten was a 7.28 km (4.524-mi) motorsport race track in Bern, Switzerland which formerly hosted the Formula One Swiss Grand Prix and the Swiss motorcycle Grand Prix.
Bremgarten was built as a motorcycle racing track in 1931 in the Bremgartenwald (Bremgarten forest) in the north of Bern. The circuit itself has no true straight; it is a collection of high-speed corners. It hosted its first automobile race in 1934, which claimed the life of driver Hugh Hamilton. In 1948 it claimed the life of Italian racer Achille Varzi. From the outset, Bremgarten's tree-lined roads, often poor light conditions and changes in road surface made for what was acknowledged to be a very dangerous circuit, especially in the wet.
Bremgarten has not hosted an official motorsport event since 1955, when spectator racing sports, with the exception of hillclimbing and rallying, were banned in Switzerland following the 1955 Le Mans disaster. Although there was a 1982 Swiss Grand Prix. It took place in Dijon, France.

Mister Denjean, Automobile electrician in Foix, Ariege, France, for is help to have optimal pictures of his Citroën HY van.
All the cars collectors who presents their cars in meetings, so I could picture old cars, and create skins.
ISI and Simbin, for their moddable simulations. So, a community could create additional content, and play with it. Let us hope that the future simulations will allow the newcomers to continue the modding easily!

Notice :
this realization has not any common point with the excellent version of the circuit created for Grand Prix Legend by Martin Zutter Raymond "Ray Geering" and John Basara, then converted for GT Legends and rFactor by Strava. We decided to resumeall the work, to propose a version answering the current standards in term of 3D. This circuit is particularly important for my friend NeelJani, because it is the only Swiss track used in international competitions.

Tools :
GoogleEarth, Bing, old maps for the plan, Bob's Track Builder, 3DSMax, 3DSimed, Google Sketchup, Photoshop for the track realization, Internet for the documentation and the pictures.

It was inaugurated in 1997 for a Formula Sudamericana race. The lack of financial support have deteroriated the conditions of the track and it can not longer support international races.

Can't download. The page gives me a 404 error that the file doesn't exist in the server. Any solutions?

Really sweet track, a real gem. Great track to play, and excellent cameras so replays are really fun too. rFactor isn't dead yet!!

My only gripe: the AIW isn't very good. To be more specific, the AI's don't drive an optimal racing line; for example they're right in the middle of the track for the big sweepers at the very end and through T1, instead of cutting the apex. Also, they turn in from the wrong side of the track in certain parts of the forest section, which causes them to go quite slow through there.
