- The closest finish at Silverstone stands at 0.350 seconds between one time winner Lee N Robinson and Rene Osterkamp (Pro Mazda season 5). This is the 13th closest finish ever.
- This is the first time running the International layout, and is just about the shortest circuit this season (3.619km, compared to Brands Hatch at 3.703km).

The track vote for circuits you'd like to be on the calendar for next season is up on the iRacing forums, and can be found here.

I would love it if you would put in a vote for Oran Park, the greatest circuit of all time.

P.S

You don't have to vote for Oran Park.

My vote

Phillip Island
Nordschleife
Le Mans
Indianapolis Road
Bathurst

Would be in favor of having tracks that run alongside the FR2.0 Sim Cup as there would be a reasonable jump in participation and its a great series.

If that were to happen then i would like to see Phillip Island stay as Bathurst was my last home track and much more suited for FR2.0.

I think I just threw up a little bit. Whilst all good/great tracks (apart from Indy Road), they all suuuuuuck in the FR 2.0. :p

MATE, ORAN PARK.

If I didnt have the speed of the marshall on the track at Oran Park then I would have voted for it.

Phillip Island is currently my local track (even though its 3700kms by road from me) and much prefer it. I am massively slow at Oran even though it was my local track when I was living in Sydney. I agree that it should be raced on for nostalgic reasons (Sadly its a suburb with houses now) as I have raced there on the North Circuit in a Go Kart but personally not one I would have voted for.
