    OK! So I’m just going to announce the winner for this round so that we can continue the competition.
    So, I really liked @pezlo2013 ‘s track but I think that the winner for this round should be @npf1.
    Although you stated that it wasn’t one of the best, the track in Phoenix is unique in the sense that it contains a lot of corners which are very difficult to get right. I believe that the track would bring some very good races because it has a very unique design, intriguing corners but also good overtaking spots. @andae23 A track like yours would be epic but the rules stated that it had to be plausible for current F1 usage and I don’t think your track offered enough run-off areas for today’s F1 standards. @ajokay, yours was a very original idea but the rules stated that the track had to be minimum 3.5km and with yours being just over 600 meters, it was ineligible to win. Let the competition continue!

    I’m not sure I’m entirely comfortable winning while I ‘appointed’ the judge, but I’ll take it, unless the others protest.

    Here’s the (provisional?) challenge:

    I’ve ‘gone back to basics’ before with my challenges and I’m going to do so again! Your challenge is to find some French public roads and make a nice ‘old school’ track out of it.

    Rules:
    – Has to be set in mainland France.
    – Between 3.5 and 7.5 kilometers
    – You are not allowed to use previous F1 tracks on public roads (but you may use parts). These include Charade, Rouen, Reims or Montlhéry. The Le Mans 24 hour public roads are also not allowed.
    – You are allowed to built ‘over’ structures such as roundabouts and traffic islands.
    – You may build a ‘start finish’ section as some of the above tracks or the old Green Hell had, but this can only contain 4 corners from leaving public roads until rejoining them.
    – Pitlanes are nice (and can be newly built) but not mandatory.
    – Since tracks like these often either had a large number of actual corners or a large number of sweeps which could also be called curved straights, there is no corner limit.

    I’ll judge the entries on Friday after the end of FP2.

    I like Phil’s and Kingshark’s tracks, but both are pretty urban and modern. I had a hard time deciding between Andae’s track and Cucamest’s track, but in the end I’m giving the win to @andae23. Old school, but with a number of overtaking opportunities.

    Yay! :)

    Alright then. Dakar, Senegal. Apparently, there’s a circuit there called Circuit de Dakar Baobaps. It’s mostly used for local and national races, but now Formula 1 wants to race there because Bernie.

    So your challenge is to redesign it to be fit for Formula 1. Some rules:

    – The circuit shall be between 3.5 and 8 kilometres in length.
    – You shall build your track including run-off areas within this area. You may destroy everything within this parameter if you so wish.
    – A pitlane is appreciated but not mandatory.

    And for the rest there are no rules. Entries close Tuesday at noon. Good luck and have fun! :)

    @andae23 I don’t know if it’s just me but the milermeter link that shows me the map that defines the area in which we are allowed to change the track in just shows up as if there is one dot and no lines (although it does say there are 1.17km worth of lines). Could you please post another link or a picture?

    $$$$ IMPORTANT $$$$

    So here’s the new area restriction: http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=6384264

    I still have no idea why the other one didn’t work.

    New area is working on my end, working on my track…

    5.63km clockwise circuit, 12 corners. Relatively similar to the Red Bull Ring, yet much longer and should be faster, with some high speed corners.

    Also, @andae23 that is an issue I randomly have sometimes, and I have absolutely no idea why.

    My entry: http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=6385276
    Pitlane: http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=6386172

    4.4km clockwise circuit, 12 corners. A mostly high speed circuit with a few slow sections (a bit like Silverstone). The track mainly follows the original circuit but with some modifications for runoff and general F1 suitability.

    I’ve reversed the direction of the track, but the pitlane would remain in the same place, it would only need a different entry.

    http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=6386351

    For some reason I couldn’t load any of the other tracks on gmaps, so please let me know if mine does work..
