Longford 1967, a historic circuit by woochoo, has developed a reputation for being one of the most impressive third-party circuits for rFactor 2, which is a quality conversion from rFactor 1. The circuit has just seen its 0.98 version release, and ISI has highlighted it by putting it on their tracks downloads page!
Longford was used for a variety of races, including a couple Australian Grand Prix events in 1959 and 1965. The track was also known for motorcycle racing in the 1950s, and the Tasman Series between 1964 and 1968. The circuit was shut down in 1968, and very little of the original circuit remains. Longford was touted as the fastest host of the Australian Grand Prix until the race moved to Melbourne in 1996. In 2011, the Longford Revival Festival saw racing return to the area, with new and old cars running down “The Flying Mile”.
This track is a great circuit for the classic open wheelers and Howston G4/G6. It is a very high speed circuit, running through some impressive scenery. Make sure you don’t get caught sight seeing too much, or you’ll end up flying off the track. Longford is one of my favorite historic circuits available for rFactor 2, and I highly recommend that everyone at least gives it a try.
