i think they should add more specialist features eg for the g25 wheel so that you use a proper clutch and can stalll of the line etc can use gears properly with the clutch
i think test drive 2 or unlimited was like that with abitity to stall
this would work great with damage as improper gear changes could wear out enginge
this would be good to stall as then people who hold x until it says go then go wouldnt be as good as would wheel spin etc
also i know above post wanted to look in the cockpit/cabin but to be honest when racing i dont really mind what the chairs and dash look like

I don't dislike the "original tracks", but I would like GT5 and future releases to concentrate more on real world tracks, even if it means getting rid of the "original tracks" to free disc space for real world tracks. Plus, I really don't like the "reverse" tracks anyways, so by having more real world tracks, we would race always on the way it is supposed to be, plus we won't have less tracks in the disc (as no track would have "two" versions, thanks to the reverse mode. Apart from the "short" versions, of course, these are ok).
So, GT5 is ready and there's no way to add new tracks now. Plus, I don't really know if PD pays attention to this forum.
But, in case they do, and as a F1 fan that I am, here are my suggestions for GT6 and so on (or maybe also for a GT5 track pack add-on):
- Interlagos (Brazilian F1 track, Sao Paulo)
- Jacarepagua (Brazilian former F1 track, Rio de Janeiro)
- Donington Park
- Brands Hatch
- Montreal (Canadian F1 track)
- Magny Cours (French F1 track)
- Paul Ricard (former French F1 track)
- Dijon (former French F1 track)
- Indianapolis (F1 track and the oval one too)
- Detroit (F1 former track)
- Dallas (F1 1984 event)
- Phoenix (F1 former U.S. GP)
- Caesar's Palace (former U.S. F1 GP, Las Vegas)
- Watkins Glen (former U.S. F1 GP, New York)
- Hockenheim (old layout from F1 90's and the new modern layout)
- Budapest (Hungary F1 track)
- Spa-Francorchamps (Belgium F1 track)
- Zolder (Belgium former F1 track)
- Estoril (Portuguese F1 track)
- Barcelona (Spanish F1 track in Catalunya)
- Valencia (Spanish F1 track)
- Jerez De La Frontera (former F1 spanish GP)
- Adelaide (Australian former F1 street track)
- Hermanos Rodrigues (Mexican F1 track)
- Kyalami (South African F1 former track)
- Zandvoort (Netherlands)
- A1Ring and/or Osterreichring (Austrian GP, all the layouts it had over the F1 years)
- Aida (Pacific GP former F1 track)
- Suzuka (ok, already in GT4, I know. I just want to let PD know I don't want them to ever pull this one out of the game. It's a fantastic, awesome track)
- Buenos Aires (Argentinian former F1 track, two distinct layouts as far as I can remember. Most modern one was at the 1995-1997 GPs, but both layouts in the game would be cool).
- Modern Nurburgring layout
- Sepang, Malaysia (I think this one is already in GT5)
- All the other F1 tracks from 1950s to 1979s, and all the modern F1 ones too. The 80s to 2000s I already mencioned above.
As for the ones "real world tracks" already in the game, like "Circuit de la Sarthe", long "Nurburgring", Fuji, etc..., please, always keep them in future releases. Tsukuba is a little annoying, but what the heck, it is a real track, and I love real tracks.
The least good thing if all these tracks come to GT6 (or perhaps even to GT5 through an update) ?
Answer: Formula-GT cars, a traditional category within GT since GT3, could have a race calendar on these tracks, making that championship a lot more believable to F1 fans.
Indeed this would be cooler than racing F-GT (aka F-1) cars in fictional tracks for this category, like "Tokyo R246". So I would prefer a calendar based more on F1 calendar, modern and older days. Specially older F1 days, as modern tracks, specially the ones designed by Hermann Tilke (Sepang, Bahrain, Istanbul, Valencia, Shanghai, etc...) are too alike with one another. And that's why I'm a bigger fan of older F1 tracks, the ones that demand to be mastered, each one a unique and different challenge.

Yeah, it would be cool, huh ? Personally, I don't care about rallies and drifting (and dragging), so, minus "no-real world tracks" and "reverse-way tracks" and more emphasis on "real world tracks" and actual asphalt racing would be cooler with these tracks, wouldn't it ?
Plus, I think that "go-karts" should also be in GT6 and future GTs. I mean, every driver, specially the ones that get to drive in F-1 later on, starts with go-karts.
I think GT6 should have at least three distinct go-karts championships (I do never feel content with few possibilities, hehe). The "Brazilian championship", said to be the most competitive championship of karts in the world and the best of the start enviroments for a "baptism by fire" kind of thing, as it is so hard, then the "EuroKart" championship and then the "Go-Karts World Championship". And real go-kart tracks for these championships (specific tracks of each championship). In the brazilian go-karts tracks, we would have famous ones like the "Ayrton Senna go-kart track", also known as Interlagos (yes, there's two tracks called Interlagos, one is for go-karts, the Ayrton Senna track, and the Jose Carlos Pace track is the famous F-1 track) and Taruma (this one REALLY famous in the entire world, as it is/was sometimes used in the world championship of karts as well, and Taruma is one of the go-karts track where Ayrton Senna also starred in his go-karting career).
After these championships with karting, license tests and turismo cars for the driver (player), ultimately getting to race F-GT and Le Mans Series. Of course, between go-karts and F-GT, we could have a lot more categories based on open-wheelers too, like F-Ford, GP2, F-2, F-3, etc....
That would be really really cool, to start with go-karts in major three championships, and then moving on in the GT vast world that we already know, plus open-wheelers on the horizon. I hope GT6 and so on can have this ! If only I had PD's e-mail !

Gran Turismo is a celebration of everything cars and motorsport. So, as much as I can't stand NASCAR, that does deserve to be there. Rally deserves to be there, what the heck, even drag racing too.
I want to see more real world tracks, but Gran Turismo MUST keep the original circuits. It must keep it's history and tradition. That is what makes it great, and that's what makes people look up and buy it. Reverse tracks aren't "more space on the disk" btw. They are the same track, just run the other way. It's not a whole new track.
My favourite tracks on Gran Turismo are mainly made up of the original circuits. When I was younger, I thought some of them were real tracks. I thought Grand Valley Speedway was a real racetrack. To this very day, if I didn't know, I would believe it is... it seems so real. No other game has created racetracks in the computer, and given them life.
As much as real world tracks are needed, they should definately not replace the original tracks. We've lost lots of original tracks over the years, so we don't want to lose anymore. Look at Grindewald, Red Rock Valley, Tahiti Road, Smokey Mountain, heck even Rome has disappeared. Red Rock Valley was too like High Speed Ring, so that's fine. But Rome! Those 3 tracks in Rome were awesome.
EDIT: Gran Turismo is the real driving simulator. I know you love Formula 1, and everything to do with it. But like I said, Gran Turismo is a celebration of everything cars and motorsport. So it should have it's finger in every pie.
Kazunori has talked about his "vision" for Gran Turismo. He also said that GT5 is about 50% of that vision... so expect some awesome things in the future.

You forgot Depp Forest Raceway and Trial Mountain Circuit. I also thought it some of them were real! until recently that is. If Trial Mountain is missing from GT5 ill suicide with the disc...
