    I'm talking sim racing only here, but what famous tracks do you really hate to drive.

    For me, it's Mid Ohio. I fricking hate that track. I love to watch real races there, but driving it in sims I just can't stand it.

    What's yours?

    Silverstone. Monza. Most of la Sarthe. Indy RC. Daytona RC. Hockenhiem.
    Too flat and boring for my taste.

    I'm with you there. I've always hated it for sim racing, especially when it was one of the rookie tracks on iRacing.

    Don't like Silverstone. Love the history, etc of it but just don't like it in sim racing. The only time I've enjoyed a race there is in the 1950's layout made for rF1. I had one of the best races there ever with the Procar mod.

    Blasphemy, I know, but I don˙t like Nordschleife. I˙ve tried it in all games where is available, with all different cars, but I still can˙t feel chemistry between us. But it is OK, I don˙t drive it, but I am happy, when all the others do :D

    This. And Lime Rock.

    Then i must say i really don't like Spa. I hate Eau Rouge. Awesome track and i love see real racing there but in sims...no, thanks.

    Actual Silverstone, 2010 Silverstone, and previous Silverstone, i don't like it even a bit but i like previous versions (until 1990 more or less).

    Then, the usual ones: Monza, Nurburgring, modern Imola...

    Same here, I just get bored out of my mind, that loses my focus and that induces mistakes and then I get annoyed. I am always annoyed on those tracks :)

    Last season in rf1 GP79 we used a different Monza though, high curbs made every corner extremely tricky and that made it fun again.

    I hate Silverstone.
    I always hated Silverstone, from the historics to the present.
    I tried so much to like it, I felt it was sacrilege not to, but I admit it, I hate it.

    Good idea for thread.

    Probably Silverstone. I'm sure in real life the track is fun but in a sim it's always boring because the environment is so boring and ugly. 200kph feels like 50kph on other tracks.

    I dont like any flat tracks, so Silverstone, the Indy GP layout, Poznan, etc. Very well made in rF2 by ISI track team and feels3 for the Poznan, but the tracks themselfs are simply too uninteresting for me personally to race on them , so i do only when i "have to"

    Nurburgring Nordschleife. I don't hate it, I'm just not a fan of very long circuits.

    Monza! old or new, the worst out there and every league seems to use it.
    Also, modern Silverstone and for racing Nordschliefe, its too long for any close racing but every other track is good to drive for me

    I have had fun on any track, as far as I can remember, but on some it was far harder to get an apropriate car to like it a bit ;)

    Tracks that annoy me the most are (worst on top):
    Shanghai (with most cars)
    Sepang (with most cars)
    Magny-Cours (with much cars)
    Brands Hatch (hugely depending on car though, with some cars and sims/games I really like it)

    I guess some of it depends a lot on setup (both ingame car setup, as hardware setup, I'm pretty sure I haven't configured it 100% yet :p ). On a track like shanghai I have it very difficult with quicker cars (as goes for sepang btw), and then when you try a slower car the straight takes forever..... and ever..... and ever..... and then finally..... the corner is becoming visible in the distance :p
    And a track like Brands Hatch, well, lets just say that I like to push, and I get punished a bit too much for it there with most cars :p When I drive there in a car I like, I really can get into a rhytm, and have a blast on it :)
