From the list of bikes that we have at present, it seems that the Busa will be the weapon of choice on the hunaudières straight. Im holding out hope for the inclusion of the unchicaned Circuit de la Sarthe II.[empty space]maybe le sarthe ... i was always wondering what sort of times the bikes would do on the true le sarthe track instead of the 24 hour race on buggati.
DrillahI dn't think they've shown all the bikes or tracks that are going to be in the game so hopefully we will get some nice surprises like the IOMTT and a few Motogp bikes.
Chaps, if you had read the list, you would be aware that Circuit de la Sarthe I was confirmed at the Tokyo Motorshow. Bugatti is the track that we have to hope forduke_toasterI think that the bugatti circuit will be in. The bike le mans is held there, not the full track.
Sorry to sound like a pessimist, i doubt either full le mans will be in.
Although I wasnt particularly fond of Bugatti in the Dreamcast version of Lemans 24h(seemed a little makeshift) Id still be pleased to see it included in TT. More non-GT tracks to master[empty space]good ... tbh, i dont care one way or another if buggatis in. maybe its just been done badly in other games but i never enjoyed driving on it.
Lets hope that the special edition colour is included on the 05 RR.Dom.SIt'd be nice to be able to take a Repsol replica Honda RCV around Laguna Seca, spinning up the back wheel on each corner ala Nicky Hayden.
Im also a big fan of Suzuka- I cant wait to be able to blast around Hondas test track on the 1000RR.FatAssBRI like the Suzuka track a lot on GT4, and it will be on TT. It's a pretty cool track to race with bikes too, it was my favorite from MotoGP3.
OmnisYeah, the Isle of Man would be huge. I don't know how or if we'd be able to run it in a single race. Perhaps there would be an Isle of Man trial mode? Where you raced in stages exclusively on the track.
During test drives for Auto Union in the 1930s, Hans Stuck sr. secretly took the Steilstrecke, instead of the regular route, and set the fastest lap of the day. His laptime could not be reached by the other drivers. Stuck didn't reveal his somewhat sneaky act until the evening.
That reminds me...I wonder if there's any chance of the current Daytona motorcycle course (and possibly the old pre 2005 one) being included. The oval wouldn't be necessary, of course, since Test Course is confirmed. If you think car races on TC are insane, then racing with bikes should be downright looney...The359At Daytona they're doing a lot of speed on a big banking. The Carousel is very low speed, and I just don't know if the bikes would be able to handle it without falling over.
Videos I've seen of track days always show slower cars and bikes up on the flat outer rim.
