Race Pro: Track reveal - Porto

Atari and Simbin have released a new trailer featuring the Porto track. Check it out and dream of fast cars in Portugal. Or something. Here's the official write up on the track that came with the trailer:

"The Porto track in Portugal, also known as Circuito da Boavista, is the last street circuit added to the WTCC in 2007. The original track was created in 1958 and it took drivers at amazing speeds across tramlines, past small houses, and over cobblestoned streets. However, the original track closed in 1960 due to the high risk of accidents. The circuit as we know it today was revived in 2005. A few minor adjustments were made compared to the original track, notably some additional kilometres added to the length, now 5.333km.

The Porto track combines fast chicanes reminiscent of those at Enna Pergusa, walled sections that feel claustrophobic like parts of the Macau track, and some very fast sections on the long straights. The track is a series of driving-traps to test even the most seasoned driver's rhythm and concentration. Overtaking is difficult, so make sure you qualify in a good position in order to get a head start."
