I work in Welwyn Garden City. Welwyn Garden City has a Waitrose supermarket. You can see it from the main road, but it’s not immediately obvious how to get to the carpark.
So, very helpfully, they’ve put up a large sign on the nearby roundabout displaying a map and directions to follow.
Now this was lost on my non-motorsport-fan co-workers, but every time I see the sign I have a set of strange directions in my head…
…So, how do you get to Waitrose Car Park?
Through ‘Goddards’ and down the ‘Wheatcroft Straight’. Ease off through ‘Redgate’ and then back on the power through the ‘Craner Curves’ befor braking for the ‘Old Hairpin’. Finally, straight on at Starkey’s Bridge, park up, grab yer trolly and shopping you shall go!
Anyone else seen motor racing circuit layouts in unlikely places?
Woah that looks really cool. We dont have signs like that in the US :(
bump. Anybody, Nobody?
Not quite unlikely as it is in the correct location so to speak;
If you follow that link you will see a relief of the Montjuic circuit used in the late 60’s/early 70’s
Oh wow, great find there!
So I was cooking up some juicy steak for my dinner lastnight and discovered one that bore an uncanny resemblance to La Sarthe.
Here’s the La Sarthe map: http://twitpic.com/6dwamm

You know… it really does!
Spotted what could be Sector 3 of a Tilke track: http://www.anvari.org/db/cols/The_Most_Unusual_Roads_in_the_World/The_Most_Complicated_Junction_Svindon_England_-_Map.jpg
haha love the Nascar one. I’ve heard of the magic roundabout before- I really hope I never find myself driving through Swindon.
Okay, so I just saw a trailer for an upcoming film, The Killer Elite, and I was trying to work out the song used in it. It’s called Rock You Like A Hurricane (classy!) by 1980s German metal band (explains a lot) The Scorpions. And for some absolutely bizarre season, the cover of the single has a diagram of Jerez on it:
Haha, that’s a brilliant spot.
There’s a “magic roundabout” in Hemel Hempstead too that I’ve driven round (in either direction) several times. You have to have eyes in the back and sides of your head.
Ha Ha, I work in WGC too and I know what you mean about that sign!!
