Is it real/supposed to resemble something? Looks like something out of a horror movie. :uncomfortableness:

He would be referring to the famous Snetterton 'Scary Tree' which is a well know landmark on the course.

I wonder if Tolkien was a Snetterton racing fan.

Yupp, already laughed about the tree monster when pCars was in developement. First considered it as a halloween joke of the developers. But as it was still there in spring, I was wondering if it was really a joke. A short research for pics of the original circuit teached me, that this scary thing is actually there.

Never will drive at Snetterton at midnight. I'm afraid, someday it will awaken to live and devour me together with my car. :mad:

When I first saw it (in this game actually) I assumed it was specially shaped like that by someone to represent a racing driver with his fists in the air. But to find out that is a completely natural feature has got to be very spooky.

I wouldn't really call it "spooky". Odd? sure. Amusing? sure. Spooky to me would be more like a huge old castle that's sitting on a hilltop (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/N%C3%BCrburg_Castle), ominously overlooking the race track that runs near it (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/N%C3%BCrburgring) while the moan of engines roars by on a clear night with a full moon (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/24_Hours_N%C3%BCrburgring).

I saw the "Scary Tree"! I was watching the BTCC from Snetts and there it was! I always thought it was trained to look that way but I guess it's just natural?
