Our 8th Birthday! – Bahrain V2 Public Beta Release

Exactly 8 years ago, we started a little project. Today the “Cars & Tracks Development Project” is one of the most respected modding group’s. We could never have expected such success would happen, Our mods are used on public simulators, on TV, even at Games Convention’s. We did a lot of mods for many different games in the past eight years and for sure we will continune our work for rFactor and its successor.

Bahrain International Circuit v1.0 was the first CTDP release for rFactor and brought you one of the newest and also most exciting GP circuits in the modern era, Dusty surface and desert feeling guaranteed!

Now exactly 3 years later, on CTDP’s 8th birthday, we gave the track a major facelift with new Textures, Shaders and additional layouts and cool features. We hope the community enjoys our birthday present!
