    Those would be some fun tracks - wish I had the opportunity to make it out to those ones. Who here has driven Road America or Autobahn?

    I have driven both.
    Autobahn is in my backyard, and a nice track.
    Road America is by far my favorite *relatively* close road course.
    Very fast technical track. 4 miles long road course with elevation changes & 2 long straightaways it is an intense drive.

    When I see in-car videos from Road America I always think of that old Cruis'n USA arcade game, with all the long straights and slight bends and then all of the sudden, a 90 degree turn. Top speed most of the time.

    A lot of time at WOT, and high speed WOT at that.

    Naa.... you'd be surprised. The right vehicle prep and most cars do fine.

    There is a lot of WOT. And hard braking.
    Coming downhill into turn 5 is big fun.
    Many carry the highest speed into turn 5.

    5 is a 90 degree left hander at the bottom of a hill.
    Turns 7/8 are super quick also going downhill as well.
    It is definitely a must drive track for those who HPDE/road race..

    I need to go to the track out on your coast...
    Laguna seca....
    That has to be just as of intense of a track.
    Eh another on the list of need to visit !

    Laguna and Sonoma are legendary. Thunderhill is also great. Buttonwillow doesn't have anywhere near the elevation changes of those ones but it's still fun too.
