WG is almost the optimal track of Formula Dé. 4 possible combinations of track, all with their speciality and all very nicely playable with a good flow in the play, no panic breaking because of bad rolls. Ss is not quite as good, but it's still one of the best packs you can get.

My circuit ratings/comments are based on how exciting/fun they are for the game. Obviously I rate the base game very high, so most tracks will rate high, as well. But some will be lower; depends on how I like the individual layouts...

With 4 different layouts, Watkins Glen is great for variety. And they each play a little differently from each other, which is a real plus!

Siverstone is a classic, sprawling circuit. A must have, for sure!

A 2 pack for the ages...one of the very finest combos.

Silverstone - 10
One of the good FDé circuits with many options and possible strategies. A very balanced and competitve track.

Watkins Glen - 6
Some decent strategic options in this circuit in its basic 9 stops configuration
The option of the "boot", makes the circuit less challenging and longer to play.
Best played in its basic 9 stops shape I found, it is quick and easy to play with beginners to FDé.

Interesting track. You don't hit top gear often and it requires a lot of strategy. The 3 stop turns can be brutal. Played for first time at Hoopla 2008.

Silverstone is a great circuit. I can hear the tv voices when racing here. Watkins Glen is a no-more-f1 circuit but still valid to take a different one when doing Championship with friends.

11 - Quite a nice track, with two different routes, and opportunity to roll the big dice. Not a huge amount of interaction between cars after a while, as they tend to spread out around the track, but enough that you can block each other to effect.

Everybody is raving about Watkins Glen, but I actually find the Silverstone circuit more interesting. The Watkins Glen is not bad, but it somehow failed to convince me yet - perhaps I was expecting too much. However, the Silverstone's quick pace and speedy corners offer many a thrill to the racer.

Silverstone: With two 3-stop corners after reasonably long straights this track can cause some serious gear crunching. Quite a tricky track to drive, particularly with a lot of cars on it.

Watkins-Glen: Very fast track - a lot of engine failures on this one.

11. WATKINS GLEN (NEW YORK) 6
Occorre riconoscere che il tracciato, presenta pochi interessi, eccetto la Esse opposta al rettilineo dei box che può condizionare la corsa, che conduce su una lunga curva a destra. Usciti da questa serie di curve, il resto fa figura ben pallida. La configurazione richiesta qui fa invece appello alla messa a punto del motore, in quanto è al 70% del tempo ad alto regime!

12. SILVERSTONE (ENGLAND) 8
Un circuito dove tutto si gioca in una sola curva, la Club. Infatti, solo quelli o coloro che saranno riusciti a passare in 4a marcia in questa curva potranno collegare una 5a ed una 6a in successione, cosa che garantisce, se si entra, di ricongiungere la Luttfield in due turni. Ma una 6a troppo generosa può rilevarsi una situazione molto calda! La peggiore, se la 5a è troppo lunga, si può collegare una seconda 5a. Di qui l'interesse di avere abbastanza pneumatici a questo momento della corsa per avere più possibilità di passare la curva Club. Ma il prestigioso circuito britannico si riduce solo a queste due curve? Non completamente. Esistono diversi modi di tentare di guadagnare un turno sulla concorrenza. La tattica che consiste nel partire con molti pneumatici duri può essere pagante. Permette infatti di uscire di molto dalla curva Chapel, con due 4a in questa curva, ed entrare allora direttamente nella curva Stowe allora che la concorrenza dovrà tentare molto la fortuna. Ovviamente, questa opzione non permetterà più una sequenza sicura con la curva Club.

Watkins Glen is a great track. There is only one 2 stop turn, everything else is 1 stop. But, the temptation to go fast is too hard to resist, because if you hit things well you can absolutely fly around the track. But if you screw it up, you end up being left behind. This is one of the better tracks I've played.

Watkins Glen is fairly short and straight-forward. Excellent introductory circuit.

Silverstone has only 5 corners - two of them with three stops - an interesting track with lots of options.

Same rating as original. My one memory of Watkins Glen is that one should drive with a big wing! Silverstone was a bit different given it's equally spaced straights pentagon type shape.

Silverstone: Cool, smooth flowing track with surprisingly easy 3-corners (due to thier length). Requires a bit of finesse to come out of the corners at speed (most are followed by decent straights).

Watkins Glen: Not played yet.
