I went in order of difficulty - Bathurst, Suzuka, Spa, Brands Hatch. (Though Bathurst and Spa top the enjoyment factor as well with their excellent rhythm and high-speed and/or lift-and-go corners.)


Nice apex, I'll take it!
Why are people voting for Imola so much? Apart from Zolder, it's the most "finish where you qualified" circuit on the list...


@Bram Hengeveld
Happy to cast a vote when more info is available like: Endurance or Sprint? Time duration? Number of mandatory pit stops if any? Tire set limit? Driver swap? Weather base settings?

Which day will occur? Calendar?

Crumpets or tea cakes at pitstops?

Any chance this could be on a US server so most people from round the world can join in? It's impossible to join an EU server as the ping is too much from New Zealand. Really wish Kunos could improve their netcode


Come on people...not Spa AGAIN?! Unpopular opinion, but after the dust has settled and the usual suspects (Spa, Bathurst, Nurburgring and either Imola or Monza) win this vote, I would say "and now that we've gotten THAT out of the way, the 3 that won the popular vote are now eliminated (we'll keep #4). :whistling: NOW, pick 3 tracks from what's left." :D
