    Credit to @Crashbroke23 for the video:

    Another of the most requested tracks among the Gran Turismo fans. Although seen in the first GT6 trailer as a brief outline of the track, SSR11 have been only seen twice in the GT series. First in GT1 and last seen in GT3.

    I personally like to see both layouts return for future GTs. The GT1 version with the brutal chicane and the GT3 version with the fast kink on the Christmas tree straight.

    -> This was highly disscussed on one of my missing track threads that the last time SSR11 '90s (the one on the right side of the video) was featured in GT3!!!

    So much win if they bring this track back from GT3(didn't play GT1, but still epic).

    Every Gran Turismo that does not have this track (both versions) is not complete :)

    There are a few tracks in GT that are such a terror at first and, after you get to know them, such lovely tracks to drive after a bit. For me, those are laguna seca, mount panorama and ssr11 gt1 version. Please, please bring it back to GT in it's first form, with that brilliant chicane :D

    The best and most technical of the GT fictional tracks. And the night time setting is jaw dropping.
    It should have weather and 24hr time simulation. :gtpflag:

    Can somebody from Polyphony Digital please tell me why would you dump a track that was so well received by players? I never played this (I have GT2, GT4, GT5 & GT6) but I know many people that love it and it certainly looks cool

    Especially the 90's Version needs to return, since it requires a lot skill to handle it.

    I would love if Seattle made a reappearance too but this is my favourite track ever, so if I could only have one legendary track back, it'd be this.

    I played GT3 for days, and even got pretty good at this track, but I never learned to like it.

    Great track. My only concern with bringing it back is removing the lively backgrounds from GT1 and GT3, to make it fit in with the new SSR5 & SSR7.

    Im just curious how these "suggestions pages" will come out in reality (aka in GT7). is there any direct connection to PD or is it just for fun?

    I would love to see Special Stage Route 11 on GT6. It was one of my favorite tracks for endurance racing on GT3, and I would love to see it remastered in HD!!

    If that rocked your boat, you'd totally go wild when driving the GT1 version ;)

    GTPlanet does not have any official connection to Sony, PD, or Kaz. That being said, when you have a franchise-dedicated forum that has been around for more than a decade, and has almost a quarter million members, it is clear that they are at least looking at what gets said here.

    I loved this track for the Ferris wheel in the background. Would be very wonderful if it is also part of the backdrop in the GT6 version.

    I used to hate this track in GT3 because I thought it was so freaking long. Now I know compared to Nürburgring, it's not so bad.

    Simply cannot wait to race Group-C cars against Senna's JPS Lotus on this track!!!

    It used to be like my relationship with Trial Mountain. Used to hate it till I started to get serious and the track shows its amazing capabilities and stunning driving secrets behind it to make you simply outrageously fast!

    Trail Mountain is my 2nd faverouite fictional track. SSR11 being number 1!

    I still play some Gran Turismo on an emulator or on my PS2 just so I can race the first version of this track. ^^ It's the only one from GT1 (aside from the original test course) that's not in GT6. ...I wonder why. O.o?

    SSR11 feels more engaging than a lot of other city circuits. It has a wide variety of corners too (right angles, hairpins, high-speed sweepers, chicanes). The track feels not too wide and not too narrow.

    While I'm not opposed to the GT3 version being added, I prefer the GT1 version. Nothing like the threat of a 200+km/h head-on collision to make you stick to the racing line in the underpass chicane. ^^ While the GT3 version also has a chicane at this location, it feels more like a narrow point on a straight than a corner.

    Also, in the GT1 version, your approach to the following right-left chicane is much more unstable (and fun ^^) since you would have just come out of a full-throttle left-right S.

    One thing I'm not sure about is if the physics engine changes will detract from the fun of SSR11. Since the physics engine has changed so much, comparing SSR11 to tracks on future Gran Turismos isn't completely fair.... maybe. O.o

    One more thing, which kinda doesn't matter... I can't see how the roads of SSR11 would be efficient for regular city traffic. O.o?
