the Nurburgring is one of my favorite tracks. They don't use much of the old track these days for races (F1, LM, etc), but mostly for specialty stuff! Great old track though!

Another one of my favorites is Le Mans. Here's a clip from 1983, before the put it the two chicanes on the Mulsanne Straight. Some the cars from this period would hit 230+ MPH on the Mulsanne.
