I really enjoyed Robert Merino's tracks in the Summer Series (Portland and Sonoma), thus driving the theme for the fall series: Trans Am tracks created by Merino.


MontTremblant.png
Race #1: Circuit Mont Tremblant. Perhaps the track most like a Doug design.


LimeRock.png
Race #2: Lime Rock Park. A very short track with 6 corners. Note: FIVE laps with 3 laps of resources!


Donnybrooke.png
Race #3: Brainerd International Raceway (nee Donnybrooke Speedway). For those wanting speed, this is your race.


Daytona_Road_Course_(1966-1974).png
Race #4: Daytona International Speedway Road Course. This one just looks flat out fun.


Bridgehampton.png
Championship: Bridgehampton Race Circuit. With long straights and slow corners, this one will be a challenge for even the best drivers.

I think there’s a version of the Daytona course with the bus stop chicane in it - I think it makes for a better race. I will see if I have it and see what you think.

This is the current road course. Not sure where I got this one originally. I think those green lines should all be red myself.

That one is long! 145 spaces is about twice the length of our typical race.

But look at the speeds! I think in terms of turns it's about the same.

Thats from the NASCAR pack in Grand Prixcision Racing, a SC game that was created a long time ago by Robert Latoerre, with others from the old Yahoo SC Group that helped build tracks.I dunno if it still works,
