    Cause Bathurst has everything a track should have.

    Bathurst is magnificent. But that's not what we're here for.
    Hey, I also hate racing at Zandvoort for some reason. Theoretically I should adore it, but I don't.

    Lemans is the worst track on history for sim racing. Spa is passable but only the historic version and only with the 67 Howston G4. Nords is terrible with any car but 60s F1 and is quite brilliant with 60s F1.

    I forgot to add it to my list ;)

    Indeed. Somehow Kunos chose a large number of circuits that I'm completely disinterested in. I think I only ever bother with 2 or 3 of their tracks.

    Anything touched by Tilke except A1 Ring /Red Bull Ring. Driving his pregnant kart tracks that are used for F1 is tedious and boring. Case in point, drive 1970 Fuji before it was Tilke-ized then the layout after he finished it. No flow.

    Will I be crucified if I say 'almost every track in Europe'? For some reason they just don't click with me. Maybe I haven't found the right European track yet, but all of their F1 circuits at least are awful imo. Actually, make that all F1 tracks (except for Montreal and Suzuka).

    For a little closer to home, I'll say Daytona and Talladega. Super-speedways are just flat out boring. This is where the misconceptions of 'NASCAR is just driving in circles full throttle' come from, and for these 2 tracks it's on point. As a stock car fan, I wouldn't be the least bit angry if they dropped those 2 tracks from the schedule.

    I'm a little surprised to see Laguna, Suzuka, and Mid-Ohio, but its understandable. I'll be really, really surprised if someone says Tsukuba though...

    Monaco - although I´m good in city tracks. I like Singapur for example a lot!
    Modern Spa - can´t get fast there, can do what I want...

    This. I've thought about this question but can't really think of any I dislike that I'm "supposed to like."
    But I will say that I detest Shanghai International.

    Mainly Silverstone.
    The old Silverstone was a superb track (the one I remember from the 90s), the actual lacks all type of personality.

    I agree a lot of the F1 tracks are boring in slower cars.

    ↑ Indeed, well reminded... Abu Dhabi is probably the worst and more stupid race track ever designed.
