Am to be given one of these for crimbo :) , after looking at the various options and because the purchaser didn't want to f**k up I have narrowed the cars down to two , between an aston v8 vantage and Nissan gtr :) . Having narrowed down the choice of weapon leaves me in a quandary over circuit , two are head and shoulders above the rest imo , and they are either brands hatch or Silverstone...hmmm ? Not having had any experience before of circuit driving which in peoples opinions would they favour if given the choice and why ?

Before I give advice if possible it would be good if you could find out what circuit configuration they will be using as each circuit has more than one option.

Its quite rare to get a Brands GP circuit day so if that was on offer I'd probably go for that.

You'll have a blast either way I'm sure!

GTR is for the Playstation Generation Clive I'm sure you'll have lots of fun. I hear it's an amazing car.

Playstation ? I was an x-box man once but have long since passed that stage in my life . I hear the gtr is a leccy revelation with it controlling just about everything , hoping that will save me from straying of the black stuff.. :)
