Default Where does the Steam install put its files?

I have recently (and embarrassingly), um, lost my game files. I don't have an offline GTR Evo (maybe I do, but I have yet to find the game), and bought the game a while back on DVD. However, I reinstalled it when I got Vista, and decided to just install the online version. It works fine, but I recently downloaded what appears to be an awesome track - that Mont Blanc rally one. And, of course, I have no idea where the game keeps its files

I bought the full GTR Evo, but I've checked basically everywhere (including Race 07).

Any help for this odd difficulty would be appreciated. Thanks!

They weren't there (I installed it off the DVD, not a Steam download, so I think that's why), but thanks anyway.

I tried reinstalling the game and removing the Steam version, and now when I run it (fresh after install), it crashes. The "Race 07 has stopped working," message. Anyone know what to do about this? If so, thanks.

Sorry to keep asking for help...

It doesn't matter if you install the online version from the DVD or via Steam, it's essentially the same. The first part of the path varies depending on where you chose to install to, the \Steam\steamapps\ey9h0n\race 07 will always be the same. In my case the installation path is C:\Games\Steam\steamapps\ey9h0n\race 07

When adding tracks for the first time you have to manually create the \GameData\Locations folders, they aren't there by default, many tracks will create the folders for you if you unrar the track into the Race 07 folder.
