My System Specs

Default Racing game input...

So I recently moved (and plan to move again this summer, into Ottawa). For now I am VERY close to a racetrack (that I hear is pretty sick!)


I am looking for a racing game that I can build/design my own track. I wish to be able to practice (read memorize) the track layout. This is my main concern. I wish to make it to scale, and the track is 5km long.

Realistic handling/driving/physics would be my 2nd concern

Graphics are my 3rd concern.

The track is the only MANDATORY item for me.

I am open to any and all recommendations! (Except "Stunts" ahhh the good ole days!)

It would be perfect if the game has a BMW 3 series (e36 or any).


EDIT ~ Proper track length

i dont knwo about making your own tracks..........for a basic program i would look at rfactor.......lots of mods out there for it so I assume you can mod it yourself............and the graphics are great.

If you want the best sim racing I would go rFactor or iracing.com but iracing you cant mod anything and its a monthly fee..

if you watn to go old school find a copy of nascar 2003 and you can make a track mod for it

Forza 3 has great reviews...not sure about track customization though
