    I have a feeling they could have named the tracks Car Boat Fish Speedway and Orange Cow Speed-O-Rama and you still would have liked them:lol:

    Why would I like that? Just because I'm a fan of GT I have to like absurdities? Give me some credit, sheesh! That's like me saying, I bet if they called it a name you chose, you still would have disliked them.

    Precisely put.

    And I'll add that the naming Dragontrail Seaside is wrong.
    And so is Sardegna Windmills.

    :lol::lol::lol:

    Clearly just Sardegna.

    Clearly Dragon Trail International Raceway.

    Seems like the file names had the qualifiers from whomever captured them: Windmills for windmills and Seaside for the seaside, and they were bulk named? like that. GTP guy ran with it thinking they were the track names.

    Ya blew it :gtplanet:.

  4. Yes, those names are much better than the new ones.
    I have the same feeling. It's no shocker to see that you like these lame names.

    Also from what I've seen, no part of that track is reconisable as Sardegna to me. They may as well have called it "Windmills some place"



    @SZRT Ice Citta di Aria= city of Air.

    Yes, I like these "lame names". Sorry I'm so lame :(

    There's no windmills apparently. Just Sardegna. Which seems like it's taken from Sardinia, an Italian island. And Dragontrail looks like it dropped seaside. I didn't think there was anything wrong with it anyway. If it's actually by the seaside. And Dragontrail has a cool sound asian sound to it.

    Not really sure why tracks being open & spectator friendly is important in a video game/sim. The more trackside objects, the greater the sense of speeds, and the more reference points one has to choose from. It's also the biggest issue with off-road courses here on GTP. And again, tracks like Mount Panorama, Nurburgring, Isle of Man, Spa, etc. don't all have the most spectator friendly layouts.

    That's not to say we don't need a decent amount of open tracks for good competitive racing. But sometimes, the track is meant to be your competition, and so tracks like Cita di Aria, Cote de Azur, Nurburgring, etc. help to bring some welcomed variety in a uniform racing world where many tracks honestly feel mundane to race. And with all it's gripes, I actually like the Tokyo track and wish the Hong Kong track from GT4 would make a return as well. But that's just me.

    Thanks for the correction, but that's a very pompous remark by the two of you. What makes your tastes and opinions so much better than those of others? You guys need to remove your heads from wherever it's stuck. I'm sure many wouldn't give two cents about whatever names you'd come up with.

    It depends on the circuit. Trial Mountain is obviously set around a mountain. It's got a few blind corners and some tricky apexes - it's a trial; hence, "Trial Mountain".

    I'm looking forward to seeing the new tracks being raced on this weekend.

    I can't say I'm overly excited about another oval, nor the second dirt track, but hopefully the Dragon track will be a good addition to the track roster.

    Citta di Aria I think refers to the meaning of aria as musical composition used in operas to designate certain pieces for a single singer that are normally used as proof of virtuosity.

    Citta di Aria is a very fast italian based track without overtaking possibilities, which I think was created as a rally circuit to test the skill of the players.

    Since these images were released alongside the new-track-blowout sets, the discussion has been merged with that original article. :tup:

    Dragon Trail Raceway; this is high praise; probably one of the most gorgeous completely fictional race tracks from the GT franchise.

    I disagree. Some fictional tracks from GT2 looked better.

    So do I. It would be good to bring back a couple of old tracks to go with the new ones.
