Darlington has been released!

Darlington has been completely rebuilt and now hosts a more accurate layout with reconfigured corners and geometry to make the track race as it does in real life.

Highlights:
  • Race-able apron in turns 1/2 and turns 3/4.
  • Multigroove racing in turns 3/4. Rip the apron or the wall. Where ever your car feels the best.
  • This track is known for its very tricky pit road entrance and this version of the track does not disappoint!
  • Up to 43 pit stalls for the nostalgic racer.
  • New more realistic camera angles which better represent the current angles seen on TV.
  • HD textures to represent the 2020 Southern 500.
  • Race distance: 500 miles
  • You can drive into victory lane to celebrate!
Possible room for improvement:
  • The AI sometimes stack up a bit going into turn 3 after a restart. If you're starting in the back on a restart watch out for this. Normally it only lasts a couple laps.
  • Went with the correct pit wall height so the pit crewmen sink into the wall a bit.
Credits:
  • Big thank yous go out to the FSE guys for your TSOs
  • Big thanks to Duck78 for testing the track.
  • If I missed someone I apologize and do not mean to plagiarize anything. I will give credit where its due.
Wanted to get this out before Christmas and I think I've met that goal. Please comment if you find any issues with the track or have suggestions.

Merry Christmas everyone!

I just want to say this! I helped test this track out for awhile! It was so much fun! It feels super realistic, sliding up off turn four is my favorite part. Everyone better try this track out at some point.

Thanks for the positive feedback guys! This is my first crack at a night track. Definitely learned a lot. There were some texture upgrades I wanted to make before I released the track and that stalled things a bit.

Tried it for a few days, and by far this is the best Darlington I've ever seen. I love how the AI actually passes each other on the outside in 3 and 4. Never thought NR2003 AI could be capable of that.
