What a fantastic track! I had thought Sugo's so-called 'Classic' layout (without the chicane in the middle of the last, uphill right-hander, but with the infield squiggles) was as good as it gets...but the original (1980s) layout is light-years better. It surely must be the fastest natural-terrain circuit ever built (discounting odd-balls like the Grenzlandring and one-offs like Mellaha in N. Africa), with the possible exception of the old Monza layout (pre-1972 and minus the banking). With only one left-hand turn, it's like Lime Rock on BF steroids. Very tricky, with no constant-radius corners and several car-unsettling bumps. Must have been insanely dangerous, especially on a bike. The slower sports and formula cars don't have much to do, but in the faster classes, the pucker factor is constant. Nice graphics, too. Two thumbs up (and two big toes too) for this one!

Update: I did some checking on Google, and...I wuz wrong; ye olde Sugo was not the fastest track on the planet--Reims and the GPL-era Spa and Monza were all faster; in the 140-mph range--but it may have been the last fast track standing (the original vers of Reims, Spa and Monza were gone by the 1980s). Akira Hagiwara's Sugo lap record (quoted in the .gdb) was around 130 mph, if I have my sums right (which I almost never do), although I don't know what he was driving. Hagiwara was the Japanese Touring Car Champion in 1985, and killed at Sugo in '86, which may be one reason the track was "dumbed down" post-1986. Long live soramame, the Anti-Tilke!

Nice track! Thank you for releasing this one.
Much improved over the early beta versions. Only the specular (light reflection) on the asphalt seems a bit too strong in V1.0. AI seems to put up a pretty good fight around here, and it's probably the fastest racetrack ever from Japan (this one is faaaast!).
