Why did I pick this track...why, why, why, why, why?...
Shout out to Chewbakkah for streaming this race. And thanks for SVTyler for hosting this as an attempt to curb our connection/voice chat woes. It’s a shame that it still didn’t help out in the end, though. (Sorry, James and HondaBro!)
Ugh...this track...It’s new to the Forza franchise. I picked it for this series because 1) It’s actually part of WTCC/BTCC in real life and 2) It’s shiny and new and potentially exciting to try out new things. So in it goes for happy times, right?
I do not like this track and am growing to despise it. I just can’t seem to figure it out. There’s nasty, high-speed blind turns and curbs that will mess your day up if you try any normal driving around them with their a) abnormally highly bumpy surfaces and/or b) high elevation that causes your car to kick up and out of control.
At least I don’t seem alone in the hatred. I’ll see about avoiding this one in the future. And thank god it wasn’t in the rain.

- Nurburgring is going to be at day because fuck rain. Also, I can’t recall any xTTC races being done at night. Let’s leave that for the Endurance Series or whatnot.
- Hat tip to citizennick. He clearly had this track figured out, having a best recorded time a full second ahead of the competition. Also, hat tip to nichpsu, that was some good racing. Really glad we didn’t wipe each other out on account of communication issues.
- Also, who the heck is SLUBETUBE?
2/20 (Team Touring Cars): Nurburgring full day, Nurburg, Germany
2/27 (Endurance Championship): Watkins Glen International Full, Watkins Glen, New York
