Grand Prix Legends – Targa Florio

I usually don’t cover GPL stuff but this is such an impressive project. The great bunch of GPL tracks will soon be enriched by a major track – the Targa Florio. The Italian track is 72 kilometers long and basically a tour of the island of Sicily. Until 1974, the Targo Florio hosted a world championship sports car event, the cars raced on the dusty public roads, blasting through the little villages.

As safety concerns became an influence in international motorsports, the Targa Florio lost its world championship status and is still run as an Italian rallye today. A track this long is not just a gigantic piece of work to model and texture, it will even need a changed GPL .exe file because of its sheer length.
