Is there a chance where we can buy and add more Ovals to the game, so we can have a proper IndyCar season? With PCars2 landing the Official licensing of IndyCar I'd love to see Gateway, Phoenix and Iowa.
Another possibility would be to add Motegi with Oval configuration which would add something for all disciplines.
By the way just want to give Props to the Devs, this game looks Awesome, and I truly appreciate the effort put into it so far.

My wishlist would include Bristol, Atlanta, and Michigan or Fontana. Talladega would be awesome.

I like the variation of ovals we're already getting, but Bristol and Darlington would be cool. Maybe even Michigan or Pocono.

(edit - but only as long as it has some fun inlay road courses like Daytona sportscar circuit)

Phoenix would be good fun with that Dog leg section all the NASCAR drivers like to cut to the absolute maximum. Also Bristol would be a great experience, you can imagine doing all sorts of race cars around that track and it being fun.

I wouldn't mind seeing Twin Ring Motegi added. Last I drove it was in Forza 3...or was it 4? As I remember, it was a pretty fast little oval, and there was a pretty fun and challenging infield course that went with it, with a few different configurations. As long as we can get ovals along with an infield, I can't see why anyone would complain.

A lot more to it than that, especially with tracks that have different types of turns, like a Darlington or a Pocono. And then tracks like Bristol are just hectic fun. Plenty of skill still needed to be good, too.

If you don't like them, don't drive them. But don't deny people who enjoy oval racing from this.

Track locations, I can safely bet.
So each location has a few variations, depending on the track. One box them could just be a fictional like Bannochbrae.
But each dlc pack, with the 1 track/location, will have ~8 cars.


If you don't like them, don't drive them.

We're Aussie. We'll poke fun at every opportunity ;)

That said, dirt oval racing is huge here. Sprint cars and what not. So we do get plenty of left turns in our motorsport.

Say, how's about a dirt oval to run the classic/ modern Indy and RX cars on?

Pure ovals...nah...not my thing, will probably never use them.

It's basically un-Australian to not poke fun.
But I just can't see why we need that many ovals, unless they have a road course too.
Although some sprint cars and tracks would be cool haha.

Really though what is a variation of an oval i mean you really need a slightly less/more oval oval than the other ovals? You would rather drive around a slight deviation of what we have than have a new track that requires you to learn it & has character requires skill etc? Is this for the joypad users by any chance?

Hotlapping on ovals, yep that's boring for sure. But racing in a full pack on an oval? It's different than track racing for sure, but I wouldn't call it boring. One lapse of concentration and you're in a wall, and the strategy of when/where to overtake as drafting advantage goes back and forth all the time makes it even more challenging IMO. Watching it I still find boring, but racing definitely not.

And since each oval is different w.r.t. banking, space, corner radii etc. and also the environment, the more ovals the better IMO :)

I really started to dislike ovals after having to deal with them in GT5 career (or 6 ? Or both ?). Gave them a try again in rF2 and got te same feeling... not for me...
I removed all ovals from my rF2 copy, except the ones with an infield course. Then again, I barely race these, except Rockingam....
Not saying oval racing is easy or boring or whatever, just don't like it.

In all fairness the OP was requesting more ovals as DLC - and I'm reading these comments as just disagreeing with that, because those people don't like ovals. Which I agree with - in terms of DLC I am personally hoping we don't see any more ovals, as each one of those takes away another "normal" track.

Mid Ohio (please)
Twin Ring Motegi

My view on this is:let's give the oval fans what they missed out on last time...i'm sure the rest will be happy with what's coming anyway...

05-09-2017, 11:40
Would the anti oval brigade prefer long straight drag strips? :p

Something that always baffles me when it comes to most ovals is why the first turn seems to be divided up into Turn one and two and likewise for the last turn into Turn three and four... It's almost as if they're trying to hide the fact the track only has two bends.

I respect others opinions (and of course that I have to) because, if everyone had the same taste and opinion, the world would be a boring place to live. Personally I love to race anything in wheels in every terrain, I donīt care, I just want to race! Of course, I have my preferences.

For oval racing, the car that I will race first is the stockcar. I love NASCAR. Iīm satisfied with what Pcars 2 is bringing to us. But letīs face it: nothing is more challenging than race in Bristol, at night, with 40 more crazy heads in the track. If this was a possible combo, certainly would be my first one. If Talladega was a available track in Pcars 2, would be my second race. Talladega is challenging in another way: if you miss the herd, youīre done. Always with the foot down, surrounded by cars, you almost can smell the "big one" coming...and of course, to race in Talladega, you have to...

It's the combined layout of Monza Classic that has the oval part "interrupted" by a chicane. The "oval only" configuration has no chicane.

But, as already pointed out, it's not a real oval, since it has right hand turns...

The Monza oval is quite interesting (to put it mildly :) ) to drive: it's narrow, very steep banking and the surface is VERY uneven...

Inspired by the discussion here, I had a go with the LaFerrari at the Monza Classic Oval... approaching the (right hand :cool: ) turn at 340 km/h with the car jumping around on the uneven surface is SCARY! :eek:

Count me in for the Anti-oval Brigade.

Just Bring Sebring and Road Atlanta, please Mr. Bell..., I have seen one guy some months ago appearing from the nothing to ask "please could we have Interlagos" in some other forum, and you were so fast in replying an immediate positive to it that you left me amazed. And why is that?, because so many others before had asked you to do same thing with Sebring, and such haste was not precisely displayed in that case.

Do you really dislike Sebring that much Ian, to the point of preferring even interlagos (a way less resquested track) over it?. Even I that have always liked F1 so much find a lot of trouble in understading the decision, unless it's a case of personal preferences and deep disliking of something, of course. Personal preferences that may very well put aside when the number of requests for the track begin to reach a paramount status.

Doesn't Sebring by the way have an oval too, or Road Atlanta?

I reckon interlagos was already in the works.

Just because Bell doesn't personally like Sebring I don't see him denying us the track.
PC3/ PC2 DLC could well be a possibility.

dodge33cymru
07-09-2017, 05:34
a) in a poll that was run a loooooong time ago, Interlagos came out very highly, above Sebring and Road Atlanta.

b) Road Atlanta and Sebring are owned and licenced by the same people, so suggesting RA will likely be more affordable than Sebring is questionable.

c) I say all this as someone for whom Road Atlanta would be top of my list of requested tracks.

d) Sebring has no oval. Road Atlanta has a short track on the other side of the road from the main venue, but it's completely separate and I don't believe part of the same facility. It's not for 'big time' racing anyway, just a club venue.

e) I would guess, but obviously don't know, that the four DLC circuits have been chosen and are in various stages of production anyway, so much as we might request them it's unlikely to make a difference for PC2. IMO.

f) I'd be up for one of the DLC tracks being an oval, if it was one with an infield road course section. One like Homestead or Kansas could fulfill this criteria.

iRacing is a PC only title. So it's possible that Forza has a console exclusive license.
