    Be sure to clear cache - or at least remove the GrandValleySpeedway folder from cache - before installing any updates.

    Riding on the success of my previous GT race track, here's another one of my fave's and also the second hardest of the original Grand Turizmo circuits. Made for 24 hour Lemans class race cars, this course offers many high speed sweeping corners and is set in dramatic scenery. The banking is deceptively shallow, making it challenging.

    Here's an add-on that replaces my generic BeamNG banners with the name brand ones from GT, for a more authentic look.

    To install: Place the zip file in your mod folder as usual.


    This one is based on a design I made over 10 years ago and also brought to rFactor and other sims. Ive made many improvements recently to bring it into this decade.

    I included 3 other "facilities" with this track. They are no frills, as not to bogg the level down.
    • One is over the vehicle bridge; you can exit the track at the start of the pit buildings; it's a small drift oval I cloned from Lanier Speedway.
    • The next is feature is just down the road from the oval; drive as fast as you can towards the city area and you will find it.
    • The third is the big one: its reached either by continuing past the city area and turning right them following the road or by exiting the track at the first intersection with the Grand Valley East; this one is a high speed oval similar to New Hampshire Speedway.

    Its an original work using only my imagination and a rough map of the layout and not a copy in any way of licensed assets. I made use of many objects from BeamNG, such as the Grandstands (cut in half, and to 1/3), terrain textures, trees, suspension bridge, Curbs from Hirochi (Modeled into the track), Banners (moderately edited)

    Feel free to use any of my customized BeamNG made objects or textures for your works.

    Be sure to clear cache - or at least remove the GrandValleySpeedway folder from cache - before installing any updates.

    Some features are:
    Hirochi style 3D curbs

    Dramatic tunnel lighting

    4 layout configurations; including the East Sections

    Modified grand stands from Hirochi Raceway


    Known Bugs:
    • The curbs don't react nicely when driving the course backwards; can cause damage to the underside of low slung cars. No more flats though, in either direction.

    It seems that on the front straight around 10 - 20 meters before the start finish line something invisible keeps wrecking cars going down the front straight. It is probably something on the ground but it seems to only wreck cars driving in the middle of the front straight.

    Other than that the map looks great!

    Found it with collision debug on:

    My big rigs weren't oriented right when I exported them (didn't know that was a thing). Thanks for letting me know about it, I stick to the fastest race line and never would have noticed.

    Edit: Mod submissions won't be checked until tomorrow morning at the earliest, so I'll have my update ready by tonight so it'll be updated ASAP. It'll include a few bug fixes, plus some new stuff.

    Whoops, didn't register that when I saw that image. Thought it was more in the side of the pits for some reason.

    Same thing with the invisible wall, except it happens in the pitlane too, towards the middle of the halves.

    Great map, but when will the Trailer and everything else be fixed? (I saw you edited the thread, but there isn't an update yet I don't think.)

    just a heads up to anyone having difficulty with crashing on the front straight, if you stay close to the wall on the left side of the track it is still passable without any collision. hope this helps some of you who were disappointed with that. :) but other than that, this map is great, and i already felt comfortable on it from many hours of gt5.

    Awesome Work.. AI no longer goes around that main track like it did in version 0.26, I hope version 0.28 will fix the missing AI path from 0.27....

    Cache cleared, Invisible wall is now an invisble speedhump, Gets airbourne crossing the line, Looks cool.. And AI path is damaged like I mentioned above, Only works in some places instead of the full circuit. Haven't tested other tracks with AI added yet.. Still Awesome work, Slight teething issues.. Cheers

    It's weird how fixing one bug breaks something else. The bump is a byproduct of the terrain editor. It leaves bumps at the map's center whenever you change the terrain. I got the AI working again and fixed the bump, but missed the morning cutoff for updates.
