More info about 2nd track that will start tonight : car chosen is Porsche 962 and track design should make the race quite fluent and enjoyable (I just tested it once to test and validate the track).
Track itself is designed by Mark, but additionnal scenery was really poor so I completed it. ;D

Krys is right, the scenery was really poor! Effectively, I designed the track in about 20-30 minutes and I send him it immediately, sure to have realized a very good track for this 2nd NORH race... So I... missed some "decorative" elements...  Even if... I think that speed and, above all, adrenaline will be so high that drivers will see almost only the road and the chronometer... ;)
Anyway I think that a dazzling point will be sure just after the last tunnel, where drivers will have to reduce drastically their speed having to countersteer trying to find, as in a real race, the right trajectory to insert the car in the short uphill, finding the right angle to make a right slide in acceleration...   :)   But even the final will be really fine...   ;)

Just see the track with TB: great scenery Krys!  :)
And now, I'm going to put my helmet....   8)

Oh, Btw: starting from this track, the names of my tracks will be a tribute to my favourite songs ever.
So... this track is called "New Languages"...  ;)

Z83, FTT0101, Naval, Z84, FTT0102.... Finding Duplode it's becoming a constant for me while I try to reach the first place...  ;)   As I had predicted last year, Duplode is on the road to be an absolute starring of this circus... and he's already onward on that road... :)

"New Language" is a fluent and engaging (and hard!) track, interesting to drive on. It makes me willing to integrate more hill edges into my future non-IRC designs. I intend to meet you guys there again in a while.

And Mark: If you look forward and see me, that's because I look upwards and see you...

Krys, a question about recording... my latest DOSBox video has two possible minor imperfections: first, I forgot to erase and rewrite my name when prompted at the "Evaluation" screen, inserting my nick on the scoreboard by pressing Enter straight away. Second, I recorded some additional footage of me saving the replay (~5-6 second). Do any of those compromise the validity of my video or am I being overzealous? It's just I don't want to risk publishing an invalid time...
