    These are the tracks I see in the video...:

    Monza
    Monza Junior
    Monza Reverse
    Magny Cours
    Magny Cours National
    Brands Hatch
    Brands Hatch Indy
    Oschersleben
    Oscersleben B Course
    Oschersleben Reverse
    Curitiba
    Curitiba Oval
    Curitiba Reverse
    Puebla
    Puebla Reverse
    Puebla Oval
    Brno
    Imola
    Porto
    Istanbul
    Valencia
    Valencia Long
    Valencia Nacional
    Valencia Reverse
    Macau
    Macau Reverse
    Pau
    Vara Raceway
    Estoril
    Anderstorp

    The video looks amazing, and I like a lot the different cars the have added to the game.

    What I don´t like are the reverse tracks, I find it OK to an arcade game, but not to RACE. I mean, in real life, tracks are homologated to be raced in one direction, because they are not safe in the wrong way, there are not sand traps, there are walls.

    Cheers,
    BR

    The site is taking a real hammering, speed should improve within the coming hours.

    Regarding the reverse tracks I agree that they are not "real", but they can be huge amounts of fun and provide some excellent racing. It adds more longevity and variety to the game. Macau reverse in the lightning quick Radicals will be a real killer :D

    Yes sir, i personally looking forward to the reversed tracks. I dont care if the layout is real or not.. If SimBin makes 200 fantasy tracks and adds it to the game it would be fine by me! (Idea?)

    Since the site is still under heavy load, someone upped the low res to YouTube :

    Then you can always grab the high res version once the server comes up for air ;)

    Vara Raceway?
    Never heard... but that is even more fun then!

    Mikkel do you know/are you allowed to tell if custom addon tracks like in GTR2 will be allowed? :)

    If you investigate a little about the SimBin company, you might figure out what Vara raceway is.

    I can't say anything about custom tracks, neither positive or negative.
    Reason is simple: I have no clue ;)

    Vara is a town in Sweden if I'm right, and since I saw a screen of a (probably swedish) streetcircuit a while ago.. I guess we have a match? ;)

    BTW, a Dutch guy who in some way (dunno exactly what way) works for Simbin lives in Vara, Sweden.

    finally downloaded the movie, looks good. But I still have the feeling it's a pimped RACE'06. For example 9 categories sounds as a lot, but it looks like this:

    WTCC
    WTC87
    MINI
    CATERHAM200
    CATERHAM260
    CATERHAM320

    new:
    SPORTSCARS (Radical)
    FORMULA BMW
    FORMULA 3000

    The same goes for the tracks, 32 sounds like a lot, but if you look closely it's more like 15 tracks + 15 more variations of the same trakcs (reverse macau, valencia long, etc, etc).


    I'm still looking forward to the game though, I hope the sportscars feel more like GTR/GTR2.

    Anyone has more information on this?
