    One request I have is, if a track has multiple layouts or configuration options, can we get that in the game? I'd like to be able to configure the circuit, include certain chicanes and eliminate others. Where is Nurburgring GP-D? Can we get the motorcycle chicane too? This goes for most circuits.

    I also like circuits that are a bit quirky or not well known. Several locations that the Supercars Series run in Australia would be nice. Several other European circuits that would be nice like Imola or Misano, Zandvoort, etc.

    A shame we got multiple layouts in past games.

    Man, that's one dangerous run.

    If the trees or rocks don't kill ya, the fall will.

    Best not to get your hopes up with PD, but Pike's Peak is looking possible...

    It's not looking any more possible than it did three years ago when we knew they had the license. As in, we simply don't know what PD are doing with it.

    I will never understand why GT Sport doesn't have the shortened variation of the Nurburgring GP track.

    I do miss having Indy in the game having seen this video. Also, this adds to my "need more layouts" from above, would love to have this version.

    Phillip Island is an excellent track for racing and overtaking. The track is wide enough, has good b asking zones for overtaking, it flows really well and a good pitlane entry/exit. Of course the scenery is to die for.

    Daytona Road Course fits Sport Mode just as good. Trying to get the pass done before T1. Then, before the bus stop. The Infield is quick enough and challenging before entering the banking.
    I had just gotten the PS Magazine featuring Luis Ordonez and it showed an in-car view of the GT-R at Daytona. I always thought what it would be like, to race real race car drivers in Gran Turismo, around that circuit. It'd make for interesting Nations/Manu races.

    My best buddy's fave location for his bike track days is Phillip Island, and from everything he's told me, your assessment is spot-on, mate.

    Very narrow though, not great for racing.

    Sportsland Sugo: never heard of this track but it looks like an interesting track.

    Sugo was in TOCA World Touring Cars if I remember correctly. I used to love that game back in the day.

    All of those are well known to us Americans. But, Mid-Ohio is likely to be the last one considered to be included. That's mostly because of its notoriety. But no Road America pains me.

    It would seem a given to include Road Atlanta, considering Michelin (partner with GTS) has naming rights to the track.

    Sebring & Imola seem long overdue for the franchise. Watkins Glen would be a great addition.

    I looked up both Circuit GV & Canadian Tire motorsport park. Even though NASCAR runs Mosport quite a lot, Gilles Villeneuve has some NASCAR history & various other feathers in it's cap. But, being built on a man-made island in the middle of a river? That's just crazy enough to be visually stunning in a video game recreation.

    Agreed.

    They had to put the stupid chicane in there to try to slow cars down heading into the carousel. I don't know the mortality rate at the Glen, but the chicane happened after the nationally televised death of J.D. McDuffie in 1991.

    Odd thing about the Indy road course is since it isn't in GTS, it appeared in GRID (reverse direction). I did love the Indy road course in previous GT games.

    I believe GRID also copied Sugo & run it in reverse. If so, it is a bit of a challenging track & would likely be good for some daily race A events.

    Given what I assume is probably unlimited access to the Japanese car world, I've never gotten how this track has been overlooked game after game.

    And if you guys want a North American circuit, look at no other than Mosport (I refuse to call it by it's corporate BS title; Canadian Tire Motorsports Park). Other than being on iRacing, I don't know of any other game with it under a license. Unlike Road America, and almost all other U.S. major road circuits. Plus, PD wouldn't have to deal with ISC (owner's of most major race tracks in the U.S.), which would expedite things.

    Sugo is also in PCars2.

    The TI Aida circuit was cool in ToCA 2.

    For PD to pull out Interlagos and Autopolis, we'll see a few more surprises in Gran Turismo 7.
