Alright, another win!
Since we have the Chinese Grand Prix coming up, I’m giving you the Chinese Grand Prix challenge. The Shanghai International Circuit is unable to make the 2014 calendar, but China wants to retain their Grand Prix. Your mission: design a track in the People’s Republic of China to host F1.
You may use an existing track other than Shanghai (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Motorsport_venues_in_China) or build a new (street) circuit. The rules are as follows:
- Track length has to be between 4.5 and 7 kilometers.
- Street circuit designs are not allowed to demolish buildings or roads.
- Purpose built circuits are allowed to demolish roads and buildings.
- Since the Shanghai International Circuit has 16 corners, you should aim for that number as well. A corner is a change of direction, at Shanghai, I would define the first corner as the moment the track bends to the right, up until it turns left for the first time.
As always, a good redesign is preferred over a bad new track, a good new track preferred over a bad redesign.
The deadline (for now) is set to Easter Monday, April 1st (tricky date, but I’m not joking), 11:00 GMT.
