Dear Mr Yamauchi,

Since the return of the Apricot Hill circuit in Gran Turismo 6, do you have any plans to reintroduce any other tracks from previous GT games such as New York, Seattle, El Capitan, Midfield Raceway and other popular circuits from the past? Many of us here at GTPlanet have had great enjoyment from these legacy tracks and we feel that many of these tracks deserve to return in future installments.

Sincerely,

Note: Tahiti Circuit has exactly the same layout like the Dirt Route 3, but in GT3 appears with some tarmac sections, not full dirt. That's why I didn't include it here.

Kaz, How about GT4's visually impressive classics? Like Cita Di Aria?, Hong Kong?, El Capitan?, Costa Di Amalfi*?, Seatte?, and the legendary classic, Special Stage Route 11?

Any chance and/or timeline for bringing these back?

(To the mods, can this qualify as it's own pos/question?)

Rome Night is still my favourite Gran Turismo track. Shame it was only in GT2, and even then, only in one Super licence test, the arcade mode, and the randomly generated races. The layout was perfect, just the right mix of corners, cambers, and elevation changes. In the unlikely event that Yamauchi-san encounters my comment, I would be honoured if he were to consider it. ;)

Portugal
Lisbon
Rjs86
RJVMS
Redrock, Seatle, Midfield, SSR11 and Tahiti (The GT2 version)

That would be amazing, if they were ported to GT6. Also, I wouldn't be angry, if any other old track made an appearance :)
