GTR2 Aussie V8 Supercars Mod and Tracks

I've been meaning to check out the Aussie V8 Supercars mod for GTR2 for a while now. After watching replays of the series every Tuesday on the Speed Channel, I finally got around to downloading the mod so I could check it out. It was done by the Mr Men Mod Team and it's a must have if you're a fan of the series. It's similar to the V8 mod they originally created for rFactor before the ORSM V8factor mod was released. Check below for download links to the mod and the tracks currently available. The tracks that aren't linked haven't been released yet but I'll update the post when they become available. A big thanks to Mr Men Mod Team for this great addition to GTR2.

Daytona Road Course Track for rFactor and GTR2

With the 24 Hours of Daytona coming up this weekend, I spent some time checking out the Daytona Road Course tracks for rFactor and GTR2. These tracks have been available for a week or two so many of you probably have them already but if not, here you go. The track was converted from Nascar Racing 2003 by James Burroughs of and he did a great job on them (also grab River Road Raceway from his site if you don't have it, it's another great track for rFactor). I like his latest version of the Daytona RC even better than the one he previously released that was later pulled due to some permission issues. Download links for both the rFactor and GTR2 versions can be found below. There's also a link to the fix for the rFactor version that includes the correct colors for the rumble strips. The screenshots are from rFactor using the ProtoRacer mod. For multi-class racing on this track, check out the All Car Challenge mod at rFactor Central.

Watkins Glen Long Released for GTR2

Mr DutchDevil has released the three layout version of Watkins Glen for GTR2. It's a conversion of Jason's excellent Watkins Glen track for rFactor. I love the rFactor version and it's great to see this track make its way to GTR2. You can download the track from FileFront or Rapidshare.
