I think Valley is a mix of Rally, Coast and Bay (look at wide roads and parking lots!)

On the French forum someone who attended the presentation posted this about it (google translated):
pod.GameuzZe wrote:First Valley, presented in the video, announcing himself as a mix of all the enviros (except for snow), the pipe is between a heavy car (like coast) and flexile (desert like). Then, in theory should emerge an enviro-style "American" in the quenching of desert and island, and finally an enviro "Asian" as snow and bay.
The name "Arena" has also been posted, appearantly for the american-like environment.

Some kind of beach environment hopefully. Loops and walls built into cliffs, watersplashes, sand and cliffside paved road sections, caves for tunnels and a vehicle along the lines of a 1/8th scale RC Rallycross buggy.

So no stadium-esque environment?

Although, I'm really liking the valley env. from the video I saw. the cars look both fast and good around corners. :gobananas:

I hope all environments will be natural, like the first 6 environments. I mainly disliked Stadium because it looks like plastic and somewhat artificial. I prefer environments, which could exist like this (ignorling loopings and boosters of course, which are integrated believable though).

I know what you mean and always wanted a more natural Stadium with grass instead of stands that nobody would see anything from. The Stadium physics make up for it though and the generic blocks mean that you can really get creative if you want to give a track built in Stadium a different theme.

Arenas and stadiums are virtually the same thing, so I wonder where the differences lie? Hopefully longer flat-to-banked transitions that can slope upwards or downwards (Stadium only has the latter, the former is in Desert), no bugs if there's dirt involved and less understeer in fast corners. I know that's what drifting's for :wink: .
