Winding through the thriving city of Dover, Great Britain’s prized AGL circuit seeks to highlight the country’s rich history while simultaneously showcasing its modern development. The Dover circuit gives pilots and spectators great views of the city’s brand new railway station, the underground entertainment district, and the scenic Dover Castle.
Dover served as a replacement to an unused track in the game's early development stages called Kahawai (later Maceno) Bay. Set on a fictional Hawaiian island in the pacific, it was to be one of the more tricky courses in the game: early designs include an incredibly long layout such that two pit lanes had to be created to accommodate the track's considerable length and a layout that notably featured a jump zone with the normal route located between two short landing pads (either of which must be landed on to unlock an achievement related to the pads).
Due to updates made to the TRM track layout system over time, Maceno Bay underwent a revision in the 0.6 build in order to comply with said updates. The new layout featured in 0.6 originally had no scenery, reused the (later scrapped) prototype tracks' aesthetics as placeholder textures, and went by the placeholder name of "Track 08."
The release of 0.7 saw Maceno Bay completely shelved and was replaced by a track simply called Dover, set at the town it was eponymously named after in Kent County, South East England.
