    Famous track which host a lot of USA Le Mans and LMGTE style races, along with open wheeled formula cars and even NASCAR. All well represented in GT6, making this ideal for club events.

    Having watched quite a few races on TV, in various weather conditions, I ran it in Arcade Mode with Time 30, Weather 25% and Change x3. This created leaden skies but thankfully no rain fell.

    Used the Zytex Greaves P2 over 5 laps on RH tyres - a very forgiving way to test any new track, I find. However, a couple of the turns without scenery are hard to judge due to the high inside barriers. Also, the lack of curbing caught me out on 2 of the turns, particularly the final turn.

    There is a lot of curbing outside one of the tighter corners. Would much prefer this on the approach, to help judge braking distance and create a (slightly) safer environment for overtaking. (Track Creator seems to make kerbs act like dusty concrete, not rubbered-up rumble strip.)

    The very long right-hander has excellent scenery to help punctuate the high speed progress around it. Tents, trees and then a final stretch of curbing perfectly mark the phases of this delightful section.

    The corners with heavy braking zones are given red and white retaining walls with gravel traps. This decoration really gets the driver attention and helps memorise the track in just a few laps.

    The wooded sections, bridges and iconic curved acceleration zones are perfect. With a bit more decoration for the plain corners and friendly entry curbing, it could be the best creator track on GT Planet.

    I love this one! Lack of elevations aside, I enjoy it. Expect this to be featured in my story. :)

    Top notch work considering CM limitations. Pretty darn accurate!

      Object placement especially is a huge pain with the editor. Thanks for the review :-)

    Faithful reconstruction, I appreciate the attention to detail with the added scenery. Currently using it to test and tune my racing Trans Am.

      Thanks for the review :-) I am still working on getting the Corvette bridge in there but so far nothing I do will create enough space for it without screwing up the track somewhere else.

      I'm gonna keep working on it though, rest assured.

    Finally, not perfect but pretty close. Thoroughly enjoy this track and will be using a lot. Thank you for making!

      Thank you for the review :-)

      If you are willing I'd like to hear what is incorrect. I am striving to have the most accurate version available.

      On Friday I will actually be at Road America on the track making corrections in real time to my file, but I would still value any feedback people have ;-)

    I'm loving this track. Nice flow, curbing is just right. Wish we could have a time trial on it.

      Glad to hear you enjoy it! Not sure what you mean about having a TT though as you can indeed do that in Arcade Mode? Or do you mean a seasonal TT? That would be cool :D

    Good design, very accurate, just isn't the same without the elevation changes though.

      I'm with you on that, the elevation in the front stretch and between turns 5 and 6 are iconic on this track and sorrily missed.

      It's really too bad that PD is making us "imagine" them :-(
