F1 races held there were usually good (off the top of my head, 86, 87, 90 and 97 were superb), and the place is both a motorcycling mecca and consistently puts on the best MotoGP racing of the season. Mind you, older bike fans also rave about Jarama, which got very little love from F1. The layout is twisty but the corners flow together nicely.
Fair enough. As it's local to me and I saw my first live Grand Prix there in 1997 I'm biased towards it.
Okayama is by far my favourite Japanese circuit... that profile is awesome for sports and touring car racing. Also zero tarmac runoff unlike at Suzuka and Fuji and some others, and awesome scenery
Club racing circuit? What the ****? You suggest that championships like Super GT are club series... world championships have visited it in recent years too
Well yeah. It always strikes me a circuit that's punched above its weight on the world stage just because Mr. Tanaka managed to get Bernie to hold a couple of GPs there. I never said it wasn't a nice circuit, nor that a club racing circuit is a bad thing. I've enjoyed my visits to Mallory and Cadwell Parks in the UK for example.
Not exactly realistic if you want Brands Hatch It's too narrow and has limited scope for improvement, F1 has outgrown the place.
I would have said that before I played F1 2013. The modern cars don't feel out of place there at all.
