    Hello dear Raceroom community!
    I'm planning something in about half a year and would like to have some general opinions.
    So go into your mind (or into Raceroom) and look at the cars and tracks available.
    Which one are the most fun in your opinion?
    Where did you have most fun in which car?
    Why?
    Hint: Please think outside the box and don't say: Car X on Nordschleife!!! ;)
    If you have written your post, check the others posts and give them a Like or an Agree if you think that this combo is also fun.
    I know this might be a bit double trouble referring to the blow of some steam thread, but if we're honest, these two are not the same!
    I can't wait to read through your favourites!
    Greetings

    Greenwood Corvette everywhere :oops: but i favor some twisty, bumpy tracks with elevation changes, so Nord, Bathurst, Macau, Sonoma, Laguna Seca
    Mustang DTM92 on Bilsterberg (mini Nord :D), Zolder and Nurburgring (great flow)

    Daytona because it's Daytona o_O Everything works there, every combo you can imagine, multiclass heaven, not to mention yoohoo first oval in raceroom

    I find this very difficult to answer because there are so many good cars in RR. If I had to pick a few, this would be my choice:

    Nordschleife and Bathurst are my favorite tracks especially when taking cars for a spin like test, joy or race. Both have fast, slow corners, long straights or what not. Pretty much everything you need. Zandvoort is great too.
    As for the car and track combination, its a big list for me. Recently I have been driving Porsche 911 CUP, DTM92 BMW, Mustung GT DTM92, New Porsche 911 RSR, Cadillac GT2, BMW M3 GT2, Corvette GTR2, MERCSLS AMG GT3, CORVETTE Z06.R GT3 on Nordschleife. Great combo.

    Talking about the CORVETTE Z06.R GT3, message to developers is please fix off centered cockpit view or maybe even better option to move seat left or right.

    Nurburgring (fast chicane) with M1 (both versions, but usually i prefer gr4 because of engine sound).

    Well my absolute favorites have to be the r8 lms at the nordschleife and at bathurst. But i also really enjoy combos like the 95 dtm at bilster berg, the daytona prototype at imola, the modern dtms at motegi, suzuka and chang, the 2005 dtm at most (although i havent driven that since the physics update for the car), the bmw 235i at the nordschleife and zandvoort and the ford gt gt1 at silverstone and nürburgring gp fast chicane. Might add more combos later if i remember anything i forgot :D

    My personal top tier track car combos
    Macau = Frx17, Frx90, GTR1, P1
    Suzuka = Perfect track anything above Adac vehicle Performance works on it.
    Sepang = Frx17, GTR1, Similar to Suzuka in anything above ADAC/GT3 works great on it.

    Honorable mentions to the following tracks that are fun suit cars at ADAC/GT3/group C.
    Chang
    Bathurst (any car with allot of body roll like the classic touring or DTM92 are really fun around this track).
    Nurburgring (GP)
    Road America
    Ochslebersen
    Edit: the 2 short layouts for Sepang South and Suzuka West are really fantastic for slower cars. (like the Aquila or GTR2-4/bmw M1 Pro car).

    I havent tried the following tracks yet :dubai, blisterberg, Daytona, Ningbo, Zhejiang. Zhejiang and Ningbo are very promising.

    My favorite combinations:

    1. Nordschleife VLN: Porsche 911 GT3R new and old
    2. Daytona: Porsche 911 RSR
    3. Suzuka: BMW M6 GT3
    4. Spa Francorchamps: AMG GT3, Corvette C7R
    5. Bathurst: BMW M4 GT4
    6. Paul Ricard: BMW M6 GT3 and Porsche 911 GT3R (love this track, it´s like little Le Mans with the long straight and highspeed corners)
    7. Autodrom Most: many classes like 911 Cup, GT Masters, GT4, TCR
    8. Dubai: perfect track for multiclass races with LMP´s, GT3, GT4, TCR

    I often drive GT cars but I like older cars like Group C and Porsche 964 cup too.

    Ha, yes. There's a range of other GT3 cars that I'll pick from for any other track, but for some reason Suzuka has to be the M6.

    I'm not sure I have a favorite, but some go-to's for me would be:

    Zandvoort - 2016 DTMs. One of the best AI pack racing experiences out there IMO.
    Bilsterberg - BMW GT2. I'll just lose myself hot-lapping here.
    Bathurst - Porsche 962. All the stress; all the reward. Heel/toeing down through the esses is amazing.

    Honda Civic WTCR at Imola and Spa. Fast sweeping bends and big braking zones where the rear can become lively. The racing is always close and exciting as the WTCR cars aren't very aero dependant and have reasonably similar performance characteristics meaning you can race inches from other cars without taking them off.
