Nice little video. This circuit may or may not be in the track list...

C'arn Wally, we want banks!
(later in the season when we have a handle on our cars, the bumps are.... challenging)

Great video that, I forgot how good that movie is. 8)
Image trying to get the current F1 field to do extra practice sessions against actors. :o
Good, clear footage of historic Monza as well.

I remember seeing a behind the scenes type thing on the making of Grand Prix and how they butchered up a Ford GT40 with cameras to get most of those shots.

Sacrilege. lol.

Yeah I realize that Dave, but it is still sacrilege to do that to one of the most beautiful cars ever made.

I guess they converted back to original after filming. But it had been abused, molested and sullied and never felt good about itself afterwards. ;)

It's heavily leaning towards the old F1's and it seems at least some know them very well. No idea about these '67 F1's and sorry about being a bit lazy maybe, but is there a consensus on which one is the fastest?
Think Ferrari is usually pretty good...so maybe that's the one to go for hoping that reliability is not modelled ;)
IMHO, the BT24 is the quickest but not the easiest to drive.
The 312 & 49 are not far off.
The Eagle, Honda & BRM have good top end but are cumbersome.
The rest are the opposite, nimble but lacking a bit of top end.

Side note, I'd like to see Pau 67 & Deutschlandring on the schedule. ;)
Deutschlandring is already on the list. It's a beautiful track, made by the same guy who made Feldbergring.
I re-discovered another track that is worthy of consideration, Thompson Rd (Singapore) GP.

I'm starting to like tracks with realistic vegetation.

I actually looked at Thompson already, but found it too slow and windy. But it is a nice jungle :)

I already have tracks picked out... think of it as waiting for Christmas Day :)

Windy yes, but not so slow, mainly 3rd gear.
And that's where you can set up a pass, get them offline at the start of a combo. ;)
The kink-over-crest on the main straight can be a killer though. ;D

I'm not trying to dictate anything, just offering my knowledge of the 276 tracks I have. ;)
