Rainbow Road on Super Mario Kart - I dominate, no brakes, full throttle and just jump and slide!

Now we're talking old school. :p Loved that track--the music on it was awesome, but it was crazy hard and the track surface itself was seizure-inducing. :lol: Only the Rainbow Road in Mario Kart on the Gamecube comes close to matching the original in difficulty, in my opinion.

I just realized I'm awesome at Knockhill using a GT car (Chevrolet Corvette)

Perhaps because it's a short track, and with it having few corners, I don't have many odds of making brain farts ;P

I do well on Magny-Cours, but I'm always right on the edge of going off, especially in those fast right-lefts (Nurburgring and Imola) because of the speed I like to carry into each of the corners. Judge the turn-in just a bit too late and you miss the corner, kinda like Hamilton in 2008.

I'm awesome at Deal Breaker. If you drop me on the roof I'll clean the top three floor in less time than it takes you to switch on the vacuum cleaner and we'll do it in 5:30.

2)Dijon
3)Spa

And I'm totally terrible at China (Shanghai).

Add Istanbul from F1 2010 onto my list... out-qualified the "Legend" CPU there for pole by over 2.5 seconds. :p

WOW, im not so good there the only chance of me qualifying on pole there by that much is if it rains!
At canada though i am usually on pole by between 2.0-2.5 in "Legend" but i think the AI are pretty crap

I feel now after a year of driving on it on GT5 that I'm pretty good at the Nordschleife now... I can drive it at a comfortable speed and enjoy it, but I can also turn up the wick and go for qualifying laps with relative ease. The back section (from the Karussell to the long straight) is my favourite and I've been faster than most in that section in nearly every online race I've competed in on the Ring.

The Nordshleife feels like i'm on a rally rather than a lap, every lap is so different to the other and it's very improvisational. I'd need to spend some serious hours honing it just to properly learn the track. I don't understand the big appeal of the circuit though, it's a monstrosity IMO. What if a circuit came out that was 30 miles long with 400 corners and was completely unraceable and dangerous, would that become the new gold standard circuit for 'racing connoisseurs'? Where does it end?

I'm one who adopts a "go slower to go faster" around the Nordschleife.
Brake slightly earlier, go nice and easy into the corner, stop trying to go faster and faster, and let the speed come to you.

Well, there is Targa Florio for GPL. 72 km lap, with ca. 1000 corners; my PB is 36:55. :D

I split the lap down into three distinct sections:

1. from the start of the lap to Adenauer Forst
2. from Adenauer to the Karussell
3. Karussell to Start/finish.

I attack these with different styles as well, the last section especially is very flowing and you carry high momentum through the corners.

Pretty sure I'm best at Circuit Gilles Villeneuve, for me it's the most satisfying when you can nail the throttle as soon as possible and scrape the walls at turns 4 and 13 (wall of champions). Suzuka I also feel like I can settle into a good groove on, but I'm not very confident that there aren't hundreds of F1 players who've beaten me on it.

The only track I;ve done on F1 2011 while I was pushing 100% and signed into PSN were Monaco and Nurburgring, 568th and seven hundred and something repectively.

I just seem to be able to hook the car up around Albert Park on any F1 game I play. Probably because I live in Melbourne and it's always the first track I race at with any new game so I know the layout so well. I also really seem to fly in Montreal, there's nothing like sending it up the inside of a couple of AI cars into the final Chicane and just brushing the wall of champions on the way out.

The thing I have to be wary about with Nordshleife, and indeed the 24hr layout is high speed sections, especially in something like the Toyota GT One with a fairly stiff suspension setup and some toe-out.

If you're not careful, you can really go wrong on these parts if you don't hold the proper line to adjust for the gradual direction changes. The slow corners, I have no problem with. So I tend to find I won't go full whack along the high speed stretches, usually with 80% throttle.

Haha, I love the Toyota GT-One, even if it does sound like an industrial-strength belt sander in every game I've raced it in. :p
