According to my records these circuits have never been used in a seasonal time trial, drift trial or race:

autumn ring mini reverse
brands hatch grand prix circuit (1980's)
brands hatch indy circuit (1980's)
chamonix main
chamonix mini
circuit de la sarthe 2005 no chicanes
circuit de la sarthe 2009 no chicanes
deep forest raceway reverse
eiger nordwand g trail
eiger nordwand g trail reverse
eiger nordwand k trail reverse
eiger nordwand w trail reverse
gran turismo arena A reverse
grand valley speedway reverse
indianapolis speedway
kart space I reverse
kart space II
kart space II reverse
madrid mini
madrid mini reverse
mid-field raceway reverse
monza (1980's)
monza (no chicanes)
nurburgring type V
silverstone stowe circuit (chicanes)
special stage route 5 clubman reverse
special stage route 7
special stage route x
toscana reverse

Loads of great potential there for some imaginative events.
Leading the field in terms of use with 11 times are apricot hill raceway & big willow with tsukuba on 10.

I agree about under utilizing the track library for Seasonals. Though I thought Chamonix was used last winter for a Time Trial.

That was Chamonix West. I assume the OP is referring to the full East/West combination which I don't recall ever having driven.

Tomahawk Time Trial in the kart space :)

Actually I don't really miss the circuits in your list. Reversed ones or La Sarthe without chicanes don't bother me in comparison to the normal ones, and I don't like Madrid and almost hate Grand Valley (since an Endurance I ever drove from GT4 of 5, or maybe both of them...).

I do miss El Capitan (& Cathedral Rocks) in general in GT6. A lot...

I've been waiting to see some TTs and A-spec races on those 80s variant tracks, having them restricted to 80s cars only.

I would also like to see Silverstone:Stowe Circuit used more with some simple [large choice] car combos as well as combos of various restrictions to narrow the eligibility list down to only a small handful of choices.

I forgot to add; if PD is going to use the same tracks, why not have the races start at different times of day more often on tracks with variable time? I don't have exact facts, but every Nordschleife Seasonal seems to start at 3pm. Maybe even throw in a weather change or two with it. The all around best Seasonals were the events around the Christmas holiday. Awesome events aren't just gifts after all.

Some were done in GT5.

Autumn Ring Mini Reverse, TT #13
Grand Valley Reverse #57, #39
Madrid Mini #18
Indy Speedway #15 . That is 628PP in 54.85 sec gold.
Kart Space #57, #30
SSR5 Reverse #32, 52
Deep Forest Reverse #20, #54


Brands Hatch 80s the two Ayrton Senna TT

Your Willow stats are actually split 5 Streets and 6 Big

Nurburgring is heavily used, 15 split: 4 24hr, 3 GPD, 4 GPF and 4 Nordschleife. Mind you Kaz seems to enjoy the place so we get what he likes.

Combined GT5 and GT6 there's not too many exact duplicate TT as there is a variety of cars, PP brackets. But agree there can be more.

My stats were just GT6 and only seasonals so I discounted the Senna special events. The Willow stats are actualy 11 "big" & 7 "streets".
