EA have released a new trailer for the upcoming Need for Speed SHIFT, showcasing the iconic Road America track - a circuit sure to be familiar to most racing game veterans.
This week we look at Road America. The Wisconsin-based track is one of the oldest in the US and one of the most exciting in the game. Opened in 1955, the track has had a solid history within the racing world featuring on the NASCAR, Indy Cart and is currently hosting the American Le Mans Series.
Check this one out right here on AusGamers.

Need For Speed: SHIFT is due September 24th 2009 on PC, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Portable.

Umm,
Dirt (was fun though calibrating the steering aspect was a bitch),
NFS: Carbon,
Grid (Grid was fav so far)
Race - WTCC
rFactor

Haven't played the last two much to be honest haven't had the time up until now :P

Best fun I've had with a steering wheel was the other weekend out at QLD Raceway when I did 8 laps in a XR8 Supercar :P

Undercover was balls on the steering wheel and the pastel blue on an orange background mini map made my eyes bleed. It was uninstalled quickly thereafter.

Just realised I haven't tried GTR Evolution out and there is a demo for it on Steam :)

GRID > * imo, although this vid looks very interesting... but I'll hold judgement till the demo, because it's all about the feel of the game.

Of all the NFS games, Most Wanted was my favourite although I haven't played Undercover.

Amen! I get out there every ~6 weeks for a day in my beast. Nothing I have ever done can give the same adrenaline rush. 8 laps would be a bit of a cock tease though - finished just as you start to get the hang of it. Takes the first session to get some heat into the tyres !

grid is a turd when it comes to realism

GTR2 is excellent for realism but the cars and tyres are just so excellent it hinders learning

live for speed, iracing and rfactor rock.

LFS hotlap to beat:
formula BMW on blackwood GP, 1:14.71

iracing hotlap to beat:
rookie solstice on limerock no-chicane 1:03.970

Fortunately, I got the car on it's second session :)

Was so tempted to drop another $300 for another 8 laps (specially since a couple of mates got me the original laps for my birthday).
I was all "awwww" to find out later that if I had, they throw in an extra 2 laps (18 laps in total). There is a compulsory 30 minute wait tho cause most peeps aren't used to driving at that speed an throwing shit round/into corners for fear of "exhaustion". Felt like I'd just pulled up from a drive to work (which means I should probably slow down for corners).

Much greater HUGE leap of respect for pro drivers tailgating other cars at high speed after that within cm's of each other.
