    More street courses for 3?

    This is waaaay too late to implement for 2, but I'd better suggest this now if it's to have any chance of being in 3.

    Monaco and Long Beach are good, and based on real-life races of considerable repute. But there are some city street tracks that don't host races anymore (Baltimore, e.g.), and some cities that are insanely photogenic and eminently raceable, but which will only happen in sims for various reasons. To wit: New York City, Las Vegas, San Francisco, Washington DC...and that's just in the US. Now think London, Paris, Berlin, Rome, Moscow, Shanghai, Tokyo, Hong Kong...

    Imagine, if you will, a 24 hour race on the streets of Las Vegas, with all those lights, and prototypes blasting down The Strip. Or, an all-five-boroughs race in "the city that never sleeps."

    The possibilities...OH, the possibilities!

    Whose to say more street courses wouldn't be added later on?

    There are a couple from Portugal still used. WTCC being the most popular series running here (street circuit wise).

    But I'm not a fan of street circuits. I just want the best for pc3 and that includes tracks and if they're national even better

    Street courses add a certain challenge you dont have to worry about track limits because you now have to worry about hitting the wall

    Well, I can't feel atracted to it. even virtually... it seems i lack the mindset much like ovals.

    But at least street racing is only boring when that ridiculous waste of money on pile ups happen. OFC that can take quite bit off race time and no spectator likes that. I at least, want to watch a race, not a junk yard

    Even on pile ups, ovals are boring and again, just a huge waste of money.

    But i'm a motorcycle guy and I'd rather make 1h of good old twisties instead of 10m full speed even if near 400kph
