    I've been having a look around and seen that all planned DLC tracks bar Macau have a video. Is there a reason as to why they're not in the game. By the way, they aren't fully finished in these videos as it was very early in game.

    I also said afterwards that these were very early versions in the game and most of the videos didn't use the HUD used currently which definitely meant there was time to improve them. There has to be another reason for it.

    Yep, they were always intended to be released as DLC. Early versions were made available to Beta testers but it was an SMS decision to not release them with the launch of the game. Some were very close to complete, others were ribbons of tarmac in a big blue sky. From the earliest days, SMS stated what cars/tracks would be available with the release, and what would come down the line as DLC.

    While doing the early builds, SMS obviously wanted the input of the beta testers. If I recall all of the DLC stuff was removed from the early access game a couple of weeks before the actual release. I'm sure most of the DLC cars and tracks are done or nearly there by now --- but obviously SMS has a set DLC schedule they'll be keeping to.

    I am disappointed that Macau is still not in. It's my most wanted track in any racing game. I have a feeling they will never do it.

    I could do without Macau, at least until the AI is made significantly less suicidal.

    Or at least until the AI obeys SCCA marshals and not IMSA marshals. :sly:

    I wouldn't mind another point to point track.

    I adore Azure and California.

    I posted a big pleading thread on the early access forum begging for something like Targa Newfoundland. A road-rally based among fishing villages along the coast of a Canadian island chain. Would have been pretty fun. I'd have liked to see them offer a few more point to point tracks and offer a road-rally as an option for game play. Wouldn't take much.

    Run a few tracks, combine the times to determine the winner. It wouldn't be a proper rally obviously, but a different challenge.

    Every point to point track the size of Azure Coast or Cali Highway (which would be comically short for such a rally) costs 3 times more to make than your average circuit. So dont hold your breath.

    I don't doubt it. I do think a two-pack for point to point tracks would make a reasonable DLC though.

    Sort of a random question, but does anyone know why they chose to add Ruapuna Park instead of say Hampton Downs or Mansfield? Or Sydney Motorsport Park or Philip Island for that matter? Why Ruapuna?

    I don't hate the track...it just seems like such an odd choice considering what else Auz and NZ have to offer.

    Ruapuna was selected because someone on the original Beta forums knew the owner of the track and made it easy to get the license and roll on w/ minimal fuss.

    Its a nice track, a little simple and short, but its better then 60% of the British roster,

    Ahh that makes sense. Can't say no to easy access :)
    Better than 60% of the British roster in the game? I would have to strongly strongly disagree with you there.

    Silverstone
    Brands Hatch
    Donnington
    Cadwell Park
    Oulton Park
    Snetterton

    I guess I could understand someone preferring Ruapuna over Snetterton...but in my eyes, Ruapuna isn't even in the same league as those other circuits I listed.

    It's better than Stowe, I'll give you that.

    It may not be the same league because it doesn't have a history, but Silverstone, Brands Hatch and Donnington have been milked to death by every other game maker, which for me makes that circuit boring in a game,

    But at the same time I don't get the obsession with the tracks listed above, especially Silverstone, there's at least three tracks I can think of in the UK I would rather race on, Knockhill, Thruxton and Croft,

    Out of the UK tracks I tend to just race Donnington and Oulton. Great circuits. Snetterton is also pretty good. I'd like to see some more US tracks, as the Glen and RA are both excellent. Some Sebring or Road Atlanta would be nice, and probably several others I don't even know.

    For me it's not the history, it's purely the ribbon of Tarmac and the challenge, and subsequent reward, which sets tracks like Silverstone, Donnington, and Brands Hatch apart from a track like Ruapuna. Variety of corners, elevation change, blind apexes...Ruapuna doesn't present the same challenge to me.

    It depends what kind of cars you're talking about. I too like Knockhill, Thruxton, and Croft...but I not in Formula cars, LMPs, or even GT3s.

    Silverstone, although rather flat, has a variety of corners not seen on most racetracks around the world. The layout also produces some fantastic wheel to wheel racing due to the passing opportunities and multiple lines through various sections.

    I loved that game. I'm still pissed that Codies replaced the amazing race driver series with Grid. Seeing Codies moving their games (F1 and Dirt) into a more realistic direction gives me hope that they may revive the old race driver series.

    The V8 Supercars were great, and you could do a big season of V8s with all of those Aussie circuits. You could even do the full Bathurst 1000. Custom championships were also fully implemented in that game.

    What saddened me with the Race Driver series was that each time they built a game, Winton motor raceway wasn't on the V8 calendar, its a challenging little circuit,
