Hi guys, just wondered what cars and tracks generate the best racing for races usually no longer than 20 minutes? Thanks.

Imola always seems to generate great racing for me no matter what car. Bathurst in older tin tops is another one.

Bathurst in in anything 80's is a blast. Difficult track but rewarding.
I've raced GT1+3+4, LMP1/2/900, Group A/4/5/C at Imola and Road America. All are great combos. There's enough space and braking zones for alternate lines and passing moves.
FRookie at Monza short and Oulton Inter.
Zhuhai is pretty good for racing anything too.
Zolder is good in LMP3, GrA, FC anything small/slow-ish.

Spa is great in the IndyCar.
LMP2 at Bugatti.
Aside from the obvious/existing combos.

Road C1 @ Oulton Park International.

But it's always about matching the speed of the cars with the lenght/witdh of the track.

Donington + ANYTHING is great, but I really enjoy taking any touring class there; Supercars, the old Mercedes DTMs and even the Group 5s are fun there.

Donington GP + any open wheel > FRookie. That track was built for open wheel racing. It twists and flows like Mid-Ohio.

LMP900 and/ or GT1 at Dubai GP. Or Silverstone.
GT1 at Zolder is intense too.
Radicals at Zhuhai.

Sauber at Bathurst if you're brave.

Just did my first LMP1 race on BRNO. Thought it was a weird combination at first since it's most known as a moto-GP circuit. Ooh boy was I wrong, LMP1's on this are a lot of fun! :)

Brno works surprisingly well in most high downforce cars actually, because it is so flowing you really get to put that downforce to use.

I'll second that. Lotus 78 and 98T goes good there.

That reminds me, I've been meaning to run an IndyCar race at Brno GP. Love running the Formula Renault 3.5 there.
