    Nurburgring (the new F1 track, not Nordschleife)
    Silverstone (love the old course alot)
    Magny-Cours

    Add in some street courses. Most all of them are Indycar tracks. Nope, I dislike Long Beach, Toronto, St. Pete, Las Vegas.

    I love long tracks.

    Don't want to mention any tracks in particular (although there are a lot of them), so I'll just say that I only drive combos where I can be on the limit for most of the track. Without g forces and risk, sim racing for me comes down to how technical the driving is and most of the challenge and stimulation (i.e. through the wheel) comes in the turns. Straights are boring as hell. Any flat out turns are worthless also. Thus, I drive the fastest, highest power to grip ratio cars available on tracks where I am on the limit through most of the lap but without feeling confined (i.e. never able to get into fourth gear, only slow turns, etc.). Only if I get the feeling of being confined will I drive a less powerful vehicle but some tracks are just amazing regarding how many different power to grip ratios are fun on them. Also I agree 100% with pancake flat tracks suck.

    I love the fact that everyone respects each other opinions. I personally hate the Tilkedromes, specially Abu Dhabi and Singapore. COTA is on the list, also. European tracks I don't like: A1 Ring, Magny Cours, Zolder and the GP layout of the Nürburgring.

    COTA (IMO, the worst circuit in the world. Everything wrong with modern tracks all rolled into one circuit)
    Silverstone
    Monza
    Monaco

    Lol man, that's too true.
    COTA is one piece of pretentious Tilke garbage.
    He really thought he had it figured out, with the elevation changes and such. Not a chance.
    Just about everything feels wrong on this track.

    well, i have never heard such ridiculous baloney. mid-ohio is one of the greatest tracks ever in sim. maybe you need to find the right car to drive on it. in AC that would be the Abarth. a very nimble car that fits the track well. in RF2, how about the skippy? laguna? what an awesome track!! one of the greatest! but i have to admit, i'm not crazy about the nordschleife. but try doing laps with huyara in AC. an experience!!

    Out of top of my head... Fuji. God awful place. Truely and utterly bad. Yeongam has few nice corners but as a whole it is bad.

    Nordschleife - I've never enjoyed very much. It's a great and fun drive but for racing purposes I don't like it.
    Fuji - What Ronnie said above
    Abu Dhabi - Obvious choice
    Losail - Flat and dull, not a single interesting corner
    Laguna Seca - Never clicked with this. Boring track with one interesting but not enjoyabe corner.
    Portimao - Simply dislike it.
    Paul Ricard - The most uninspiring and ugliest circuit on earth.
    Sebring - Uninteresting.

    And a track I haven't tried yet:
    Monza - with the modified Parabolica. :(

    I can't say I love COTA as a track but some of my best victories against tough competition have come there so... I like it :)

    Monaco. I hate that place. I can't make a lap without hitting the wall twenty times.

    After having just seen a lap of the new Sochi track, I think that'll probably hit this list pretty quickly when it becomes available to race in a sim.
    A track so bland that you'll literally won't know one corner from the other. Yikes... Tilkedromes ftw...

    Took the words right out of my mouth.
    How anybody could love Monaco in a modern F1 car at this point, is beyond me.
    Sure! you have to be extremely skilled and have large attachments to make great passes there...but it's usually boring.
    Mid Ohio is very exciting...even in a simulation.

    Well I would imagine ít's really hard to hate Bathurst. It's not too short but not super long either, it's fast, have both fast and slower corners but not too many super slow corners, has elevation yet flat parts as well, the environment is nice looking, lots of overtaking spots, and it sits GTs as well as protos and openwheelers... I simply can't think of a single obvious con of that track.. you can't say the same about most tracks.
