Okay, your next mission, should you choose to accept it is to build a circuit for the New Zealand Grand Prix, which you are going to create from scratch.
First of all, go to New Zealand in the GMaps Pedometer.
You will need to find a large, empty space within two hundred kilometres of Auckland International Airport. It should be somewhere near a major road (which are in orange), or at least have easy access to one. “Easy access” is defined as being within fifteen kilometres of a major road.
Using the manual plotting tool, draw a circuit that is between 3.5km and 7.5km long. However, the closer you can get to 5.5km (which is about the average these days), the better it will be for your final mark.
Now, you may not destroy anything. At all. Not even the minor council roads that only get used by a handful of residents (you may destroy dirt roads and paddock fences if you need to; assume you have purchased this land for the purposes of building a circuit). Nor can you use any part of any existing road in your circuit.
Your circuit should contain between twelve and eighteen corners (a corner being defined as any constant change in direction; sometimes it can be a little tricky to get perfectly-straight lines).
Finally, no straight on your circuit should be more than a kilometre long.
When you are done, save your circuit under the “terrain” profile and post it here. You will also need to make a second submission that shows the distance from your circuit to the airport. Do not use the elevation profile (under the options for mile markers and calorie counters).
I am looking for a circuit that is challenging and unique, but also realistic.
