I'm hoping that this list can be a source of help to those wondering which Formula De tracks are the best choices to purchase or play. I've only played a few of the courses myself. So please, all you Formula De vets out there, chime in with your thoughts!

Also, I encourage those of you with opinions on the various courses to rate them on this site.

Monte Carlo (Monaco), shown
Zandvoort #1 (Netherlands)

The basic set (at least in the Eurogames/Descartes edition) comes with these two tracks. I particularly like Monaco, one of the slowest and most convoluted tracks in the series.

Zandvoort #2 (Netherlands)
SPA-Francorchamps (Belgium), shown

The SPA track is one of the very best, and the Zandvoort #1 and #2 can be combined into one gargantuan course. Certainly, this is one of the very best purchases for someone starting a small track collection.

I've raced at Kyalami once, and it seems to be a solid but unspectacular course. I've not had a chance to try Imola.

Magny-Cours is a magnificent track, but Monza (which I've never played) always looked very pedestrian to me.

Watkins Glen (New York, USA)
Silverstone (England), shown

I like the quirky Silverstone course, with long-ish straightaways followed by wicked curves and chicanes. It's one of the courses that some folks race with doubled straightaways (two points to move one space, and an odd remainder can be either used to move or discarded). I haven't raced Watkins Glen, but I like the fact that it contains two optional sections - the more variety, the better.

The Montreal board is visually striking, although I'm not sure how well it plays. Long Beach features an extraordinarily long straightaway followed by a very tight chicane.

With four tracks in one package, this is a great buy - although the card stock is thinner. I've played and enjoyed all four of these.

This is probably going to be my next purchase. Both courses look interesting, and fairly different from any of the other tracks available.

New edition of the base game.

Includes
Race City stret track(shown)
Monaco

Race City is a good track where you get to use sixth gear. Expanded by "The Shortcut" (Free print-and-play expansion)http://www.boardgamegeek.com/game/39567

Monaco almost the same as in the Formula De game, but "Chicane" now has a longest route of 10 (7 in the old game)

Third expansion for Formula D: Singapore(shown) & The Docks.

While I have not played the Docks, I have had the pleasure of racing in Singapore once, and it was a blast, although my car did not make it home. Come to think of it, it did not make it past the third corner - blasted rain!

This will be the 4th expansion for the 'D'. Picture is Buddh.
We are waiting for it, because the release was delayed for almost half a year now.gulp
The design looks interesting and I want to play it (... right now)
