Default Roy Hesketh Circuit for GT Legends by barcika

Roy Hesketh Circuit (Pietermaritzburg, KwaZulu-Natal) GTL v1.00
created by barcika

The Roy Hesketh Circuit was a racing circuit located on the outskirts of Pietermaritzburg in KwaZulu-Natal. It was named after South African racing driver Roy Hesketh, who died in the Second World War. Doug Aldridge, Colin Dove, Ossie Fisher, George Finch and George Shrives got together as a Consortium from Pietermaritzburg in the early nineteen fifties to first build and then maintain and improve the circuit.

During its period of operation (1953-1981) it hosted rounds of the South African National Drivers Championship, and national Formula Atlantic races. The circuit also hosted the Easter races - a festival of racing over three days. Mike Hailwood, Giacomo Agostini, Barry Sheene, Kork Ballington, Jim Redman, Paddy Driver, Mike Grant, Rod Grey and Syd Stacy were regular competitors at the circuit as were John Love, Jackie Pretorius, Sam Tingle and Ian Scheckter.

In 1973 the South African government banned all motorsport due to the world oil crisis, the circuit went into decline and finally closed in 1981 after only 28 years.

Length = 1.803 mi/2.902 km
Grid = 36

Thanks so much!!! My home circuit This is close to how the track looks today in real life. Top job on the trees - they are there waiting to do some serious damage if you go off! I've driven it IRL a few times. No official racing is held here these days though, but it's used often for track days and corporate type events.

There's a good version of the original 70's layout done for GTR2 by Paul Minnaar: http://www.nogripracing.com/details.php?filenr=30167

Steps by anyone to bring both this layout and even more so, the original 70's circuit, to AMS would be awesome, and much appreciated! The main reason for it's closure in 1981 was due to approaching urban development. Residential noise complaints from houses that were not around when the circuit was built. Such a shame..

Thanks again!

Sorry, I did not know you live nearby.
I would have asked you photos and managed to have a more realistic version...now it is finished, but I'm glad looks a bit like it.
Thanks for the information, mate!
Cheers!
