I'm not sure how well the existing Zandvoort would work, but at least there's something available unlike Vietnam.

Either skipping or finding substitutes would be OK.

Malaysia or Istanbul.

Any other tracks that were good that are no longer on the calendar?

Korea or India from the old schedule a few years ago. I liked those tracks.

I like Sean's idea. Bring back some good old tracks. Let's look for some updated former tracks on s397 workshop.

Help me find them with links. Sometimes, Steam doesn't search so well.

The one issue I had with India was that the track was a FPS hog. I liked the track, but it anyone crashed by pit lane the sim went down to single digit FPS.

I'm drawing a blank on Korea. I know I've driven it, but I have not memory of the place.

It has that weird last sector before front straight, that was almost like a street circuit, with walls real close to edge of track. (if I remember correctly)

The smart thing to do would be to drive it !

I'll give them a look.

I don't mind putting in some tracks most of us know. It reduces the time we need to get up to speed.

Nurburgring was a cool track...

I suggested Portugal, but I hear it's chunky.

Rich,

I ran a lap or two of Portugal,Estoril, and it is a cool track, but... No pit lane speed limiter. I tried Imola, 1988. TOO tight and curbs are car wreckers. I even tried the first version of Indy GP. I remembered why it wasn't a good track.

I'll load up the short Nurb and see if I like it better than Turkey.
