Bern-Grauholz for Grandprix3

Home of the Addie Walti Racing Team

Fictional circuit for Grandprix 3

Fictitious circuit for Grandprix 3 in the tradition of notorious ultra-fast tracks in bernese forests, without newfangled security gadgets like gravel fields or tyre walls, but with indoor pits (it rains pretty often lately!) and a quarry section.

The idea for the pit lane design is based on the “Parking Track” of Bob Pearson.

if somebody likes to host it on his/her page
i’d suggest to just insert a link to
as i won’t announce eventual updates of the track individualy.
(and of course i never mind a little notification, if you do so :)

1 a

for software version create a custom dir called:


in your GP3JAMS\ directory and copy the jam-files from into it.

1 b

for hardware version create a custom dir called:


in your GP3JAMSH\ directory
(please note the H at the end of the hardware jams-dir) and copy the jam-files from into it


then copy the trackfile f1ct16.dat to the CIRCUITS directory.
if you’d prefer the track in another slot simply rename it.

beware: you may want to save or rename your original f1ct16.dat before.

trouble shooting

- if you get grey areas where the fences should be, you missed the correct jams-directory name
- if gp3 crashes to desktop when loading the track you maybe mixed up the hardware- and software jams
- if it still crashes to desktop, you may want to try another slot (default slot: f1ct16.dat)

known bugs

-in the back part of the track sometimes some textures of some cc-cars become invisible for a moment. you can watch this e.g. in the tv-cams right after "swervins step" (see gp2-map for reference) or in the quarry section.
any ideas about the nature of the problem is very welcome !

-raindrops in the pits despite the roof ! gp3 seems to be not designed for handling indoor pits :)
