We have choosen 3 custom, and 1 default track for this league. First of all, we will visit the US. Searspoint and Mid Ohio will be the first 2 of our tracks. We leave for the UK after that, to have a taste of Snetterton. Since we are in the UK, there is a big chance that the weather will let us down there . Next up we go all the way to Japan, to have a go at Fuji Speedway. The final round will be special, as it will be a long race, which starts in the daylight and takes us all the way to midnight. We will finish in the dark there.
