    Sounds fun. I’ll join this contest.

    I do sometimes make circuits in my spare time. Here’s a picture of one of my earliest designs:

    @GeeMac maybe i should have made the first part clearer but the track can only be inside the blue bit on this

    other than that anything goes

    Oh so close to getting to do a track around my hometown of Hook.

    @roblo97 Do we design this based on the actual existing roads? Meaning, do we consider whether roads are wide enough, or just simply go for our favourite shape based on the non-satellite image?

    @roblo97 Oh I see!

    I’m having a slow day at work, so I’ll take some of that action. I’ve based the track right at the bottom of the allotted area.

    Ladies and Gentlemen!

    Here’s my ‘Someone left the old Hockenheimring in the oven’ track! Shame the roads weren’t a little more co-operative, but it looks nice and would be high speed.

    Here’s mine:
    http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=5764772
    I wanted to include a few sections that I know from driving the area, such as the fast first corner, which is a downhill sweep onto the roundabout, them uphill sweep off it, quickly followed by a hairpin as a ‘true’ first corner. I originally wanted this slightly further along the road, but had to shorten it to be within the 8km limit. It the drops down again to the roundabout before heading into slightly more residential roads. There’s a kink on this straight before a 90 degree left, which leads into a nice downhill run, with a fast left and faster right. The next corner is a little sharper to ensure that every time the circuit encounters a roundabout, they are treated differently. The next straight has a fast sweep in it, and then reaches the very fast, uphill corkscrew. The following corner is double-apex, and the final corners are a slow chicane to break up the long straights either side. The track is very high speed, with 4 straights over 1km in length, but all have bends/kinks to make them more interesting for drivers, and visually for TV viewers. The only real problem is the roads being a bit narrow between the 2nd and 3rd km markers.

    This is mine.

    Around, through and across a lake. It is 5.1271 km km long, hence would do about 60 laps to complete correct race distance. It is also a relatively fast and flowing circuit. The start-finish line is the straight on Albert Street.
