    That's a great news !
    I know barcelona isn't very popular, but for me it's a "must have" (like Nurb GP).
    Spanish community on iracing is really big (maybe too much would says some guys...), so it's "logical" to have a spanish track, much more than so many Japanesestracks (tsukuba is fun, but really not interesting).
    As all the guys, I'm still waiting (and complaining) for an updated' Silverstone (thats just unbelievable), but it's not the time yet. Yet is time to thanks iracing to bring the barcelona track, I'm happy with that news.

    PS : on my "to wait list" there is still :
    .1. a GT4 serie,
    .2. an updated Silverstone,
    .3. a "real" french track (cause Le mans is not a real-track, just used for the 24H and that's all )... give us Le castelet, or Magny-Cours, or (why not) the Le Mans Bughati, Nogaro could be great too...
    .4. Please, finish Long Beach !!!!!!!!!!

    nice, will fit all the bigger cars and series and the short layouts will be fine for the less powered cars.
    btw: did anyone else mention we are still waiting for an updated silverstone ;)

    Wide track that allows for side-by-side racing for us sim drivers.

    BUUUUUT, they better have the old configuration! Going from Turn 11 in a never-ending right hand sequence all the way to the start-finish straight is fantastic.

    Oh they'll have it alright-- imo iracing is nothing if not obnoxiously thorough when it comes to multiple layouts of circuits. I never would've imagined I'd get to run the Sports Car course at Vegas Motor Speedway in a race sim and had no idea Tsukuba had a "1000" layout at all.

    The trick is finding/convincing a series' to run the layout you want...which shouldn't be an issue since the moto (classic) layout is very popular and who the hell likes that contrived n unnecessary final chicane anyway? I for one won't participate in any week that has it.

    Could you imagine an iRacing thread where people discuss what the thread is about rather than the pricing model? Yeah me neither ;)

    Mallory would be a useful track for Iracing.As well as the old & new layouts for road racing they could use the oval in the other direction.I was racing at a meeting in the 90s at Mallory when the Eurocars had 3 races on the same day.Great racing with Mike Jordan(BTCC) & hot rod legend Barry Lee.

    Don't forget the monthly fee to actually use the content you paid for.

    Thruxton is in both RF2 and AC - also my local track, but rather boring.

    Wonder if they will have the RallyX layout, maybe some issues with it being in WRX but would be cool to see

    I agree Tsukuba is very weak and Barcelona should be much higher on the priority list.
    Hard to believe no Algarve/Portimao! Wait, what? I know it's not a Spanish track but it's only a few miles and such a great track!

    They most definitely need to add some French tracks, I would love to see Clermont (Charade), that's a fantastic place to race!:geek: I guess Tilke never went there. :D One of my top favorite tracks, maybe the best on Earth, but not sure if it's wide enough for multiplayer.

    Jerez is also a track with good flow, I think.

    For Japanese tracks, which are more than fairly covered by GT Sport (IMO) :poop:, Fuji would be great to have but I would put it below the French/Spanish/Portuguese tracks.

    Oh, and please, enough with the :poop:ovals:poop:. :laugh:
    Let's get more like Mid-Ohio, that track is great!:thumbsup:
    There! Always end on a positive note! :ninja:

    I think I read a while back that they are working on new silverstone.

    Was I wrong?

    You are right ;) that's why it's unbelievable that they still didn't release it !! the track were scanned in 2012 (yeah, it's been a while), and re-scanned (?!) spring 2018 ... they're working on it, only during "free time" (when some guys are nor used on "new tracks")

    It's one of those tracks which are challenging to drive (good for simracing) but usually awful to watch (F1). I've always had a lot of fun driving it in AC, specially the Moto-version of it.
