Does anyone know where these two tracks are set in? It's listed under city, not original, so it has to be based on a real-life setting.
Is it me or does the shape of the High Speed Ring map remind you of a really squished Fuji 80s?
Clubman is fantasy as far as I know, although if you look up the places on the road signs on the main straight, it may give you a hint as to where Clubman is set.
The sign on the left is South Port I think.
Not exactly related to the topic, but still pertinent, I have personally driven the stretches of the Seattle course. It's not a race track per se, but it is based on real streets/freeways in Seattle, WA. It is also documented in the Prima guide that the New York track is based on actual roads in NYC.
It is a possibility that SSR5 is also based on a less-known cityscape...
As for where, I have no guess to tender on the matter.
Well good luck guys. As i said, some folks have tried to find Route 5 and Route 11 with no luck.
High Speed Ring (fictional track) was based on Fuji (real track) when GT1 was released over 10 years ago. I read somewhere that the folks over at Fuji had some issue with Polyphony Digital's HS Ring, and that's why it was dropped in gT3, and it's also partially why both Fuji and High Speed Ring appear in gT4 even though their layout is so similar.
I was thinking more like, the big ferris wheel in Yokohama and the Yokohama bay bridge.To answer the question...
No-one's ever been able to track down a location for R5/11 - though they seem to have real scenery from a variety of places (like the power station, ferris wheel and suspension bridge - think of having a European-style circuit with the Eiffel Tower, the Atomium, the Nou Camp and St. Peter's Basilica).
