Well, just when I said race track production where rallys and circuits are concerned are down, out pops several new tracks!!! No complaints from me, however - none at all!
As for the track itself, I've only run it twice, but from the very beginning I had this feeling this one would be a keeper...and it is! I love the originality in the layout - nothing really fancy, mind you, but it's...different. Initially I thought the the tunnel models were a bit overused, but after a few laps, the layout grew on me.
Although this track is based on snow covered mountains, the road texture is very nice to race on. The author is right on the money when he says it's not the easiest of tracks to run, but it's definitely learnable. The series of sharp turns, mini jumps and uneveness in certain parts of the road make it a challenge, but this one will prove to be lots of fun to race one or one or with a few others provided all involved are skilled racers and are familiar with the track.
From an objective standpoint I really don't have any knocks against this track. All the cp's work, and as for the would-be lag, I didn't notice any...not at all. I'm not sure how it will handle night time racing with several headlights in those tunnels, but we'll surely find out!
All 'n all this is a very good track, Matagasco - I applaud you on your effort, bud. Hehe--I kinda get the feeling you've been around and have just changed your name, but that's not important really. I'm just appreciative there's another track maker out there putting out very nice products.
On a scale of 1 to 10...I'm going to call this one a 9, which means it's a must have if you're a pro racer! Once again, great job, Matagasco - we'll see ya next time around!
