Why set up a race circuit in a city? Public roads add a layer of difficulty for both driver and car alike that aren’t normally found at a dedicated race track, like varied road surfaces with differing levels of grip and a lack of runoff area that make mistakes costly.

You’ve just been tasked with finding a location for the next great street circuit™. Where is it located, and what series is it going to be used in?

Boston, because I always vote for pure chaos.

NASCAR Cup Series using that loop road for the terminal pick ups and drop offs at DFW.

It's always fun when video game designers build the street circuits we'll never get.

With stadium trucks

It may not exactly be a sim racer, but Blur has you covered:

With diesel powered Hummers. 

(Which is about as likely as any car race in SF)

 

I have to say, in general, street circuits are very narrow, make for bad racing, hard to watch and based on sim driving, not enjoyable to drive (in the GRM AC racing series, we avoid them like the plague).

Not Cincinnati... unless you want off-road truck!  (Yes, our streets are that bad and , no, we don't need another tax levy promising to fix them.)

Yeah, I'm gonna go with none.  We've got more than enough of them already.

Not a circuit but I'd love to see a rally sprint stage (dirt + asphalt sections) or Touge battle setup (Formula D would be bonkers as well) be run on Skyline Avenue in Duluth, MN. Twists, turns, through the woods and over look views with the twin ports as the backdrop. Would be one heck of a spectacle event IMO.
