Okay, so I know this is just going to degenerate into a favourite tracks thread for GT5. But I pose a question for my fellow F1 fanatics: Which track/(s) would you most like to the on the F1 calendar? The only rules are that it must be an ‘original’ track from Gran Turismo and therefore not real and that it must be tarmac.
My vote goes to Cape Ring. There are lots of reasons why it couldn’t be there, such as no run off to speak of, some impossible drops behind barely present safety fences and some impossibly narrow sections as well as being unbelievably lengthy. But I would pay a considerable amount of money to see Hamilton going round the outsie of Alonso through that spiral. Plus the views are absolutely spectacular.
The Cape Ring is an excellent addition to Gran Turismo but the track I’d most like to see (and the one I’d faithfully recreate if I were a gazillionaire) is Grand Valley Speedway. Fast, flowing, lots of places to overtake, very difficult sections and wonderful scenery.
My favourite track on the game is Deep Forest, but having an F1 race there would just be ridiculous. Trial Mountain is the same, both are fast, bumpy and narrow and would be far too dangerous.
I would go for “Tokyo Route 246” it is a fantastic circuit, and by far the nicest city circuit I have ever “driven” it seems to me that you can always go a little bit faster, so it awards the one who pushes the most..
I hope to upload a video of myself in my Audi R8 LMS on the forward circuit to test out the YouTube uploading facilities of GT5, but if they’re anything like the online mode, I’m not holding my breath.
And, slight thread hijack…can anyone remember a track from GT4 that had a sort of uphill chicane as the last corner with a big clifface to the right? I can’t remember it’s name for the life of me. That’d be good in a Red Bull.
I know it’s not GT5 but I’d go for El Capitan reverse (GT4/PSP) because racing the F2007 around there on the PSP is probably the funnest combination possible on the game. Not a lot of runoff area though…
