I would of course vote for PIR because it is my home track and I would love to be able to practice in LFS for it.
But, it would be a bit boring for Sim racing. There is no elevation changes at all.
If Scawen did want to do something like that, I am sure I could help because I know a lot of people involved with the track up there. It is a city owned track so licensing probably wouldn't be a problem.
It is a very fun track to drive in real life though and it is a proper road course. It was originally built off of the city streets of a town called Vanport that was destroyed by a flood. www.griplimit.net for some other video of the track.
If you have r-Factor, there is a pretty good version of it out called Vanport International.
My vote would also go for Road America, a very, very fun track to drive. Super fast corners, medium speed corners, slow corners, elevation changes, etc. VIR would be great too. There are also a ton of club tracks that are being built here in the US that would be great ideas too. Most of them have tons of different combinations.
I think however, that until we come up with a system for the community to provide quality tracks, that Eric should continue to concentrate on fantasy tracks that set a certain theme. Like Fern Bay club tracks, Aston F1 style tracks, etc.
Wow, I can't believe someone actually suggested this. That is of course if you mean THE Pacific Raceways in WA state. I've driven that track and wouldn't mind seeing it in the game, but I imagine it'll be a mess, thanks to its technical nature and rough elevation changes at hairpins.
Personally, for some reason I want to see Sepang in the game. Although it probably won't happen, because it's a major track and would cost a lot to license.
Another vote for VIR. It really is quite fantastic. It has a great mix of fast, medium and slow corners with numerous elevation changes. There are several connecting sections which make possible many different configurations of widely varying lengths. I've never even driven on it; I've gathered all this just from the spectating areas (which are excellent, by the way).
I agree. Of the currently active F1 tracks Magny-Cours would be last on my list to add to LFS, although Bahrain and Shanghai are in close contention. The opening bend at Shanghai would be interesting, but the rest of it? Meh.
