I absolutely hate it, fear it, but like to drive.
It's awesome with normal or underpowered racing cars but nightmare with powerfull sport and race cars with traffic.
Le Sarthe is nice combination of speed, circus and challenging corners. I like to drive it around all other cars in games except co-karting car or Fiat 500...
Spa is all time favourite with lot of F1 games, GT-Legends, GT5. I didn't like much old layout bustop but when got car-setups in balance, it was fun.
I had also soft spot for old Hockenheim which was ruined by new layout. Long and fast straights and due you had to have low downforce track's few corners were always bit difficult.
Suzuka's first sector S corners are fun to drive when doing it correctly. Usually I don't like them.

Nordschleife is my favourite: i've ran thousands of laps at that place on the Forza games and love the flow of the place.

The GP cars is obviously way too fast for this circuit but stil. Unfortually I can't find a very good youtube video of it but this gives a taste
Of the modern games I can't really think of any that awakes a special feeling of respect. Some are fun, some are not but no one stands out as special on a higher level.

The original Rainbow Road was essentially Mario Kart's answer to Monte Carlo in almost every possible way, lol.
The Mario Kart rainbow track. Especially in 150cc... if you don't respect it, you go down.
On the subject of fantasy tracks, I see that and raise you this one: Phantom Road, from F-Zero GX. Possibly the single most infuriating track that I've ever played on any fantasy racing game--believe me when I say that the guy in the video makes it look exponentially easier to win there than it actually is.
I don't technically have 'respect' for any real-life tracks on racing sims, because they can all be tamed with enough practice. There are a few corners that have earned my respect, though...
