Playing Gran Tursimo 5 i couldnt help noticing the lack of quality Rally courses. i was playing Gran turismo 3 for fun and i realised that the old rally maps are better than The ones in gran turismo 5. Granted Toscana is good,but i feel that sector G,K etc. dont really count. I dont feel that this is rediculous to ask for some better rally courses such as Smokey Mountain, Tahiti,etc. I really found them more entertaining and exciting than the ones presented in Gt5. I also admit that Rally isnt even in the A spec/ Bspec and also that it isnt popular online ( so attention/developpement towards it is low) but i also believe that better courses might interest people towards it. There are a whole bunch of Rally cars in GT5 so it could be very exciting.
I don't think most people care about rally racing. People not racing the tracks online isn't due to the lack of quality tracks, it's due to people not liking rally racing. Personally, I think PD should just eliminate it from the game altogether in GT6 and maybe introduce another form of racing that has never been in the game, like an official fully functioning drag stip since so many people like to drag race in this game. Remove what people don't care for, and add what's popular that people are doing in the game or asking for. Eliminate kart racing, nobody does that anymore either.
My theory is, if your going to add a form of racing into the game like rally or NASCAR for instance, then take the time to do it right. If you're not going too, then why bother, because there are other games that have taken the time to do it right. So if you really want a good rally racing experience, you're better off buying that other game rather than GT5 that only did it half @ssed.
People don't care about the Relly in GT5 because it was done poorly. The cars slid WAY too much, and as the OP said, the tracks aren't good. On top of that, there's NO rallycross whatsoever (excluding arcade mode). Not to mention you get penalized 24/7 if you slide into walls going 15 mph.
Thats because that how rally racing really is.... you're racing on a dirt/sand, gravel, snow.... If you're having trouble sliding all over the place, then slow down and brake EXTRA early..... remember. Rally racing is just like road course racing, except theres a whole heck of a lot less grip available, so you'll need to use different techniques and lines for fast laps.
Yup...I believe it's the first challenge in the Loeb Rally event in the SE section. I think it's also found in Arcade Mode, but I can't recall which layout it is - I do know there are at least 4 different layouts...there's the G,K, and W layouts, and the Short Course, which is all tarmac.

sorrry for reviving an old thread but where is the Pikes Peak uphill and downhill course. The Escudo pikes peak and its monsterous HP was designed only for this course. I mean i know its a real track, but if you can afford to put laguna seca(for example) then put pikes peak. on a side not the rally mode always sucked. the best rally mode in the series has to be GT3.
