Description [hide]
Version 2.0 is here and is completely different from 1.01. Mostly it includes more detailed terrain and objects like garages and the big building. The shortened 1.9 mile version is also a new addition.

Thanks to Bob's Track Builder, tons of downloads and help from racedepartment.com, 6E660 for skies, Krunch for skydomes,
Great Britain Xpack for being the best ever, and efnetsimracing.com drivers for helping test and race on this new track.

--------------------------

v1.01: This is a new rendition of Thunderhill Raceway Park in Willows, California, USA. The year chosen is 2009, right after a repaving that improved grip and allowed many new track records to be set.

Thunderhill is a real 3.0 mile road course situated in the foothills of Northern California that has a little bit of everything, from steep elevation changes to high speed corners with cows off in the distance.

While the scenery isn't the most spectacular, the high speed bits will keep you on your toes, and there are several passing zones to make racing even more fun.

It has been used by many sanctioning bodies for road racing since 1993, featuring races over the years like the SCCA Pacific Coast Road Racing Championships and the NASA 25 Hours of Thunderhill.
Thunderhill 2009 v1.0 is built using GPS data and Google Earth.

I have taken some liberties with the track edges to keep it more interesting (the hills next to the track should be very close, as they are important landmarks), as objects like firebreaks are difficult to create and may cause an FPS drop. However, the overall layout, altitudes, cambers, and track widths are fairly accurate. Enjoy!
