Are other big tracks loading ok?  Donnington, Brands, Nordschliefe...

One thing that may be worth a try is unpacking the track and trying it from a folder.  Was just musing with Matty last week - wondering if archiving tracks made a difference to loading times.
Got as far as musing - didn't get as far as actually timing them to see.   ::)

Y'now I've - twice - had a memory problem that acted very similar to no-LAA.  Only happened at higher addresses - showed up mainly on game loading screens.
...and it turned out to be dirty DIMM connectors.

Thought I'd post up my trainer from laying down the rubber for the groove(1:52.4) in case anyone wanted some company for their early laps.
...the setup used is in there too.

The guys racing in real life on this road are completely crazy...

Unfortunately no-one's racing there in real life at the moment.   
There were two accidents last year with bikes going over fences and into the crowd. :(

All races so far this year have been cancelled and any news snippet I've seen has had an ominous vibe.  Arguments about whether the work for safety improvements was being done or not - folk not getting refunds for cancelled events - the chairman of the Auto66 club left....

Meant to say....

Big thanks to nuovaic for his field trip with camera and tape measure.  Most of the TSO's are build on the photos(and quite a few are skinned with them too).
...and I'd have been nervous as hell making such a narrow track without real measurements.
Know it was a while ago but your data has been handy as hell.

So yeah - cheers again!   ;)

Oh Noooo, I didn't know that! That is sad news Groove. :(

Another classic track/event going down the tubes cause of these safety obsessed do-gooder idiots.... When will they realise that the riders and spectators know the risks and are willing to take the risks.... We have a choice to spectate/race or not.... If they spectate/race and get killed that is tragic but they knew the risks involved(Often used to warn people of the risks on the back of the ticket as a liability waiver), and if they didn't realise the risks then they are fools. :P

Sorry for the rant guys, but I'm just sick and tired of great classic events and tracks either being ruined or dropped due to so called health and safety issues that seem to be a crazy obsession these days in all areas of life..... What are we? A bunch of whining wimps and poofters or what!? >:( ::) :P

Reasonable safety I'm all for, but in reality nothing is 100% safe when your dealing with projectiles crashing at those speeds and energies and it all gets to a point where people are just implementing so called safety facilities for the sake of public consumption and at a detriment to the sport itself. :P

We need to start taking responsibility for our own actions.... We all know the risks involved in attending a motorsport, let's deal with it instead of looking to blame others and seeking compensation for every little thing that goes wrong in our lifes! :P
