Short tracks (<1 min lap) for Grand Prix 4?

As the title suggests, which tracks exist for Grand Prix 4 with a lap time of under 1 minute?

I really like racing short circuits. I've found a few, some of which I can't get to work, and I've looked at the database spreadsheet, although not all tracks have lap time and distance data.

I've tried the following, I might have forgotten one or two:

Working

Motegi Twin Oval
Talladega

Not Working or Unavailable (for me)

Brands Hatch Indy (crash to desktop)
Lime Rock Park (link is dead)
Monza Junior (crash to desktop)
Suzuki Oval (crash to desktop)
Elimeno (crash to desktop)

I can't figure out why so many of them crash, I'm adding the track file into GPxPatch, maybe I'm missing a step that's needed for some but the read me offers no hints.

You could try my Tahiti track, it's 1:05 to 1:10 ish depending on the carset.
The link is in my sig...
Not sure why they are all crashing, but I use the manual method for installing. There should be an FAQ pinned to the top of this forum...

Depending on the carset, my Jangka-Mardarni circuit - which is in the spreadsheet I think - is a 1 minute a lap; I think the race lap record by an AI was Schumacher, 2002, with a 1:00.608.

Hi there!

I think for Brands Hatch Indy, if you just decrease the number of laps in the .dat file from 127 or 128 to 126, it should work.

I think I didn't remember the hardcoded GP4 limit when I set it for the version that is uploaded.

I will re-publish a revised Lime Rock Park before the IMSA race this summer - it's mostly done (elevations were way off in the old version, now you get properly light on the Uphill), I'm just playing around with some final details, such as a tyre wear value that is consistent with the other tracks.

Thank you for playing with my tracks, I appreciate it. :-)

Thanks! It looks like I was actually trying a different Brands Hatch (Brinds Hitch, by Tony, all of his tracks crash for me) and yours works fine. I look forward to more short tracks hopefully! :)

Try this one in the link below.

Its called San Glitz.

There are three tracks in total, but the shortest one i'm pretty sure is only a 50 second lap.
