Default All tracks flat?

I was just wondering if there are any tracks that aren't all flat..
maybe somthing like laguna seca....obviously not that grand, but at least a incline or decline with a corner..
It seems like having a track like that could add a whole new meaning to driving skill, not to mention being able to setup your car for it..
anyway just kinda thinking out loud....

Hi,

Take a look at this track i raced at last Sunday as part of the Southern Touring Cars Championship (STCC) in England. It was an off road track that was laid over when the touring car scene took off.

I have never attached pics before so hope these work

These sort of tracks are very good fun to race on. The sweeper in the last pic gave you a really nice run on to the straight...felt sorry for the marshalls though if it went wrong!!

The thermometer was a akward corner, but was a good place to sneak inside someone

the broxtowe track's main features are the jump at the end of the straight and the parabolic corner IMO.

I guess that U.S. hobby store owners don't want to invest money into tracks like that; too hard for the drivers.

That is all gonna change when I start my Hobby Store...... even gonna hire someone to cut the grass!

I've been asking about these types of tracks for awhile now, these types of tracks will make you rethink how you set your cars up.
