Paul Fletcher International Kart - Track Updates

Last year one of my projects involved working on updating the existing Paul Fletcher International Kart track (PFI), to the current standard (at the time). The track was updated so that it would run inside of rFactor. If you are familiar with the actual track, hopefully you can spot the changes shown below that have brought the track up to its current configuration.

Break off the existing track, shortly after the first corner.

Which takes you under the newly added bridge.

A long rising corner brings you back on top of the newly added bridge that you have just passed under.

A quick downhill to rejoin with the existing track.

Further smaller changes were also made around the track, but the images show the major change that I made to the track.

Race Centre - 3D Visualisation 3

My Final Visualisation that I can share with you for now is again similar to my previous two posts, Race Centre - 3D Visualisation 1 and Race Centre - Visualisation 2, again this one is for a Race Centre showing the layout of the Simulators and making sure that they do fit into the available space. The Images also give you a good understanding of what the room will look and feel like when it is actually built up.

Again all these images have been worked on in collaboration with Triple Widescreen. Further images of all my projects can be seen on my Facebook page,

Race Centre - Visualisation 2

Following on from my previous post Race Centre - 3d Visualisation 1 here are some further samples showing a different Visualisation that I have completed.

These were also done in collaboration with Triple Widescreen.

Race Centre - 3D Visualisation 1

A project that I completed recently involved me creating a Mock-up of a race centre, showing how the simulators would be lined up, this also helped with determining how many simulators would fit inside the actual space that was available, and enabling to realise any problems before any work was actually carried out.

I have included a sample of the final 3D images showing the layout of the simulators and how the race centre could look in real life.

I have worked on several of these 3D Visualisations with a company called Triple Widescreen.

Golf Training Application - Background Image

A quick project that I was involved in was to create some background images for a Golf Training Application, allowing users to log various shots and there accuracy.

One of my images can be seen above with all the different overlays shown from the app. It has been created using 3Ds Max and rendered out using Vray.

Area 27 Track - Jacques Villeneuve

A project that I have been working on recently involved creating a pre-visualisation of a race track designed by Jacques Villeneuve. The race track was modelled to work in rFactor, so that it could be loaded onto a simulator supplied by VRX, which enabled it to be drivable and raced upon long before development of the actual real world track was built. In doing this it allowed changes to be made to its design and layout so that it would drive exactly how Jacques had envisioned it to.

One of the latest videos showing a lap being driven of the track is shown below;

For further information regarding the development of the Area 27 Track, a further video has been produced which should give you all the information. Also watch out for my Track being used on the Simulator part way through the video.
