    Usually, we get photomode locations because they're of any relevance to the automotive world or are close to a racing track (although we do get some locations just because they're breathtaking). Ahrweiler, for instance is in GT5 because it's the name of the district where the Nurburgring is at. Maybe the proximity of 3 racing tracks to this location isn't just a coincidence?

    Or maybe it is and Acura chose this location simply because they liked it?

    Indeed. This place never ceases to amaze me with how quickly things are identified.

    Well done.

    Steady on there, just because they were used as weather locations in GT5:p that in no way says they're tracks they've actually worked on building.

    While I agree with you, I sure wouldn't mind them as photo locations.

    Thanks.

    And yes, that is an old dam that never got used.

    There are very nice roads in that area. Very narrow and with a beautiful scenery. Small white villages with very little traffic.

    Amazing that PD thought about this place.

    Cheers

    Car companies test their cars, correct. GT is showing a prototype car in a car testing area, GT may be showing us where to se NSX mules!
