Helsinki Thunder - a temporary street circuit. From 1995 to 1997, it hosted events in the FIA GT Championship, Deutsche Tourenwagen Meisterschaft and International Formula 3000 Championship (download).

2 x 19 laps.



In the video, there is a car (which looks suspiciously like Mael's red Alfa) left facing the wrong way, against a barrier on track. On a street circuit. What could possibly go wrong.

Did some laps on this track and all was fine, but if I entered the pits would get half way down
pit lane and game would crash back to CM. ?? anyone else?
NEVER TOO OLD TO RACE ... being competitive can be a PROBLEM though.

I got it too. I think it's because you get a "wrong way" warning when you're driving in pits. I'll see if Seanus can take a look.

Something wrong with that video, I believe a Mercedes was leading? Impossible.

Track fixed, same link, but different layout 'Online'
Server updated and tested, track map works for me but don't auto regenerate your own as the AI line is wrong.
Transparent building fixed.
First out lap and laps via the pits do get timed but should be invalid so as to not affect Qualy. YMMV ?
The answer: -80538738812075974³ + 80435758145817515³ + 12602123297335631³ = 42

Thanks Seanus, all good now. I haven't tried the timing yet, we'll see.

This track is more fun than I thought it would be, for a concrete lined street circuit. The corners have a good flow to them. But there's going to be a high risk of hitting someone who's bounced off a concrete barrier.

Searching for the shortcut :)

I predict some serious pile-ups this week. In the best tradition of street circuits.

Lots of concrete there, isn't it? Probably very difficult to overtake too.
I'm struggling with the Hungaroring...never raced there before ;)
