Everyone will have seen it at Snetterton I'm sure, unless you haven't raced on the track yet!

Hehehe - this is actually commonly referred to as 'the Scary Tree'. The bend it's on is Montreal but is even quite often known as 'Scary Tree bend' amongt racers and circuit-goers because of it. That tree's been there for the 60+ years the circuit has been in existence (back when it was a USAF wartime airfield).

Apparently last month (Apri '15) it was given the honour of the Freedom of the City Norwich (as the circuit is based near Norwich) and apparently that's the first time such an honour has been given to a non-living individual (i.e. a person).

I think it's brilliant and I love that they included it in the game... :)

It's a great track, I've got many, many real world laps on it, I prefered the old layout, but at least the new layout still has the bombhole, always nice draggin a knee round there on a bike ;)

All it needs is a giant pair of comedy hands and one of those beercan baseball caps. ;)

Surely a contender for one of the greatest possible taglines that should have been on the box art to promote the game! Lol. :D

It looks very menacing when there is fog on the track, definitely not a happy tree

That thing scares me. The music in the game with paired that picture doesn't help my case much either.

I think he looks thrilled, probably just won a race or scored a goal.

Watch the Shawshank Redemption. Great film. Then you'll see why he is celebrating! ... Though to be fair I hadn't thought that he might be doing an impression of 'the tree'... This is a possibility ��
