    Sometimes Spa, sometimes Monza, depends on the level of downforce.

    For street cars it is always Nords.

    Bridgehampton. A nice long straight and a good selection of turns. It's sort of my home track because I raced MGB's there back in the day.

    If it's a car that really needs a long straight, I go to Riverside. The new 908 sounds great there.

    Whatever track I am currently working on...

    EDIT: I'll also run Bridgehampton and RIR too especially for vintage cars. I almost never touch stock tracks unless I venture online.

    VIR full course and Imola are good, but my absolute favorite is Grobnik.

    Magione and Nordschleife in that order give a good first impression and are a good way to learn cars in my opinion. Magione because it's very tight, has some good braking zones, turns that allow for some experimentation, one longer straight that leads into a somewhat aero-dependant turn that takes some courage to be fast, requires riding medium to high kerbs and is still short, good for quick testing. It's in a way like a smaller Vallelunga, only that it's a bit too flat. Nordschleife because it has everything, but it takes a long time to complete a lap in turn.

    Imola, Barcelona, Vallelunga and Zandvoort are other good choices with good variety to put cars to the test.

    Bridgehampton or/and Riverside from mod-tracks and quite often Mugello from the stock ones.

    I like Imola, has some up and down corners, not just flat ones.

    Imola is fab, I guess it's from race07 days and the BMW I would get a win or at least a podium more or less every time online.
