Description (Click to toggle Visibility)

Brooklands is a motor racing circuit build near Weybridge in Surrey, England.
It opened in 1907, and was the world's first purpose build motorsport venue.
The track is built 100 ft wide.
The banking is nearly 30 ft high.

Brooklands as now 4 circuits.
The Campbell ... 2.267 miles
The Outer ... 2.767 miles
The Mountain ... 1.17 miles
Le Grand Prix ... 2.616 miles

I tried to build this track as close to the real thing as possible.
I have looked at hundred of photos and films.

And to recreate as much as possible the atmosphere of that era,
I added the sound of the announcer, crowd, and music.
Also you will see the dust rising while racing.

You will also see the famous Clubhouse, and the flying, passing by plane
from the nearby airfield. The train on railway straight.
And a lot more.

******************************
June 27, 2011 update version 1.5
******************************
Changes in version 1.5

-Added a New circuit, le Grand Prix, 2.616 miles.
There are now, 4 circuit in total.

-Changed direction of the Mountain circuit.

-Gave Test hill a face lift. Nicer looking.

-New Camera for all 4 circuits. (using Traveling camera).

-Bud was not available for the AIW. So I teached myself on
doing the AI. So I Redid all of the AIW.
Now the AI rides higher in the banking.
Also made them more competitive.

-Took off the invisible wall on top of the track.
So now if you go to high and go over board you are
done.

-I colored the spectators. Now they don't look like a
black wall any more. ;)

-I created more bumps on the road. But as soon as
they are to big, the AI gets all bizarre. So I had
to limit them.

-Changed some textures around the track.(cosmetic).
It gives it more realism.

-Fixed the fuel problem which made any mod
missing fuel.

The AI worked perfectly fine, but now when the AI transition from the banking to the flat part they either drift wildly or crash.

Hi Ben,

Just caught up with 37 mod but can't get more than a few laps out of your great looking Brooklands. No matter which layout I drive the computer locks up after a few laps and has to be rebooted.

Is there a fix? Hope so because it looks so good.
Cheers,
Nev

I'm having a problem running this track. A trace shows the folloing error: "CUBE error loading scene file J:\PROGRAM FILES\RFACTOR\GAMEDATA\LOCATIONS\Brooklands37\GrandPrix\GrandPrix.SCN: Error initializing scene file J:\PROGRAM FILES\RFACTOR\GAMEDATA\LOCATIONS\Brooklands37\GrandPrix\GrandPrix.SCN"

Can anyone help?

Can anyone give a GOOD link to this track? 1937 Mod is just released and would love to run it at this track. Like the previous post every link is dead.

Hi, is there anyone who can re-upload this track for me? Every link I can find is dead

Downloaded this and had a quick ten lap race....awesome! Remember that this was my favourite track (by far!) in the otherwise totally forgettable Spirit of Speed. However, I now have a problem. If I now select the track it just hangs at the loading screen and nothing happens. Have re-installed it several times without any luck!

Well there two of three sand banks, but as to the location I find conflicting positions...
F1Crisp on Aug-25-2011

Hi F1Crisp, Yes you are absolutely right. There was a 3 sand bank chicane . I did make research on that but never did find any details with photos. But if you ever do find any info and details, I will put it in on a next update.
