No sarcasm, "IMO". You're right about the NSX though, had a different image in mind.

I normally go to Brands every year for this, but a date change means i'm racing in Wales that day (this is definitely a first world problem). I thought therefore maybe I'd make a trip of it and go somewhere else, but haven't been to the other tracks before (except Silverstone, which from memory is pretty awful as a spectator).

Where's good? (For me, good means "being able to see a decent chunk of the track, and therefore follow a race in the flesh").
If you have a chance, go to Spa - it's not actually that far from Brands and the 24h is a real event up there with Le Mans and the Nurburgring enduros (if a bit less intense!).

I can't do Spa this year so planning on trying Monza. Been there for the F1 a while ago, looking forward to roaming the track a bit more.

If you feel the AMG GT doesn't belong, then you must feel the Aston Vantage also isn't a sporty enough car? Surely you didn't like the DBR9 either, it's even bigger than the Vantage. Likewise with the SLS and Jaguar XK.

The 911 must not be a "true race car" either, it has a back seat! How dare they.

I would suggest Paul Ricard, done the race there twice now and personally thought it was awesome

No Lexus yet, potentially Farnbacher could take a dip

For reference, MaskedRacer stated an opinion of cars they'd like to see, and I've responded with opinion myself of cars I'd like or not like to see there.

No, the lines of the Vantage don't insult or annoy me as much as the AMG. The DBR9's line I don't mind at all. The SLS is a Mercedes and can, as all mercedes, spontaneously combust worldwide instantly for all I care. There's little lines more classic than the 911 saying hound me around a corner, so your observation doesn't resonate with me.

Can only agree that the best race to go to is Spa , huge crowd and it's 24 hours ! But in terms of track viewing , the only place that competes with Brands , IMHO , is from on top of the pits at Misano , you can see roughly half the track from there .
