Inverted F1GP Tracks v0.1

"Inverted" original 16 F1GP tracks have been released. The tracks were created by Fredrik Meyer. The tracks are available in the File Archive section of this website:

All tracks here are just like the original ones, except they have been "inverted", meaning that all track sections that used to go uphill now go downhill and vice versa.

In some locations, track objects "bleed" through the track and other objects. To avoid this, a number of trackside objects should be rotated slightly to follow the new track gradient. At the moment, they do not. Something for the future...
