This is a fantasy of mine, a scheme I made that pits some of the hottest rolling stock right now against each other in quick-fire races. This may or may not happen in real life. I sure hope it does.

Right now, the seeding is randomized (full stipulation below), so where they are in the bracket doesn’t really reflect their performance before getting paired.

As this is more of a fantasy and it will take long before the stars align and all tracks and cars are in one game (or Assetto Corsa mods), we shall make do with voting which car will win their respective heats.

Potrero de los Funes is an underrated race course; running in a similar vein as Mount Panorama, this 6.1-kilometer circuit is equal parts mountain road and street circuit, with a breathtaking backdrop and one of the best centerpieces any track can wish for: a natural lake. Equal parts fast and technical, the circuit is one that can turn up the excitement level to past 11. Just make sure to double-check your number plate.
