After running the track for the first time last nite, I think it has some promise but not really ready for a proper league race.

The layout itself is fun but pretty major issues with timing not working properly and pits not working as they should along with not a great track surface. A bit too rough in some corners from a low poly mesh, it may feel kind of nice but I dont think its intended.

The surface is smooth on the concrete parts maybe too smooth but very rough in most of the asphalt corners. A little polish could make the track a great adittion to the regular league roster but sadly like many quick conversions these are rarely ever updated.

Screwed timing is a major concern, otherwise a fun track. I don't mind the bumps.

Timing is an issue. I did not notice anything unusual on the surface compared to the iracing version, apart from the heavy washboarding around t4.

Quite surprised 2 people rate it really good, yes the layout is fun but pits not working and poor timing makes it pretty much useless for a proper league race as is I think.  ???

I forgot about the pit completely - you're right it's not ready for league racing if pits are needed (and the timing is off)
But at least there's no holes :)

Great track, need timing and pits.
