    Cool. :)

    You've got some exciting projects on the go. Looking forward to all of them, especially Laguna Seca and Road Atlanta.

    Personally Road Atlanta is superior to Laguna, so no biggie for this guy here. Boa sorte Mario!

    I understand why Mario would work on Laguna.... so many are obsessed with it. I've never understood the obsession. I agree, Road Atlanta is far superior to Laguna, hands down.

    It's a great news to see this track progressing. About Laguna, I think it's one of those track that it's better to watch a race than be part.

    I've never understood the obsession with Coldplay...yet I'd prefer Bathurst over road Atlanta and think it's far superior, each to their own ;)

    Road Atlanta, Mosport, Bathurst, Road America my all time favorites.
    Not a huge fan of F1 circuits.

    I'm most anxious about this project out of everything else I've seen in development. Can't wait!!!

    Turn 10 used to be the place to go and watch the old IMSA GTP cars. Flat out into the dip at the end of the back straight and the turbo wastegate chirps, downshift and fly under the bridge into the blind apex right and downhill to the next high speed righthander. Whew! Then in 1992, the Nissan GTP had a massive shunt there....then 1995......Turn 1 is also rather formidable....

    It's an amazing place to watch a race. Up on the hill you can see quite a lot, and there are several places where you can watch the cars very close-up. The little cluster of trees at the bottom of the Corkscrew is one of my favorite places to stand at any track.

    Same goes for Road Atlanta. You can sit on the hill at the top of T5 and watch the cars come around T3, down the esses, up T5 back down the hill to T6, then you can turn around and see them going down the straight. You can go down to T6 and T7 and get very close to the cars. Or you can go over to T2/3 and get really close. You can also stand at the bridge and watch the cars drop down to T12. Road Atlanta is great for spectating and driving. Laguna may be great for spectating but IMO it is boring to drive.
