Game and console suggestions to learn Nurburgring?

Hey all,

I was wondering anyone could suggest a good game to learn the Nurburgring?

I may have an opportunity to drive on it (extended stay in Germany) and wanted to spend some time ahead of time to practice.

Not sure if there are any PS4 or Xbox One titles with the track yet, I haven't kept up at all so that's why I'm asking now.

Also, ideally the games won't require a ton of time to earn (via license or experience) to get to drive on it, either!

Thanks in advance

The only experience I've had with that track recently is Forza 4 and Gran Turismo 6. I would suggest Gran Turismo if you're going more the simulator route, at least on consoles.

Maybe on consoles. Overall, neither of them stand a chance against the PC.

Not true at all. I have both games, a pretty good setup (all fanatec clubsport gear), and have a fair amount of real world track experience and the GT series is more realistic when it comes to driving feel. The only place where you can say Forza does a better job is graphics (though debatable) and definitely the sounds.

Forza 5 does not have the ring yet. Forza 4 does.

Any suggestions for a PC game for learning the N-Ring? Nordschleife loop in particular? Thanks.

I can't say I have very much experience when it comes to PC simulators, but I do plan to get Project Cars when that's released. From what I've read, Gran Turismo 5 and rFactor/rFactor 2 [PC] are quoted the most when it comes to accuracy of the 'Ring, even including bumps in the road where it would normally be in real life.
