    Time to announce the winner

    After a good inspection of all tracks, which I all really liked, im giving this one back to @vmaxmuffin. His creativity stood out when using the sections of the park he used, which made his track stand out the most to me.

    Over to you mate!

    Thanks!

    Ok so here’s the next competition…

    Scenario:
    The Grand Prix of Long Beach began as a Formula 5000 race in 1975. The following year, it became a Formula One race, and it remained so until 1983. Since 1984, it’s been run under both IndyCar and ChampCar, but Bernie Ecclestone has decided that he’d like F1 to return to the streets of California. However, the track needs to be extended before it’s used for F1.

    Rules:
    - The track must be a street circuit, using almost entirely (at least 90%) existing roads or carparks – some very small sections of new connecting roads can be used.
    - The track must share some roads with the existing track – it doesn’t matter if it’s 100m or 2.5km, but the new track must share some of its track with the current one. For reference, .
    - No buildings can be destroyed.
    - You must account for the width of the road. Roads should be at least 3 cars wide (e.g. 2 lanes + 1 “parking” lane), 4 lanes is ideal. A narrower road can be used if it’s obvious in street view that the road can be widened.
    - You must have room for appropriate run-off area.
    - A pit lane must be included in the design, either by written description (“Pit lane is from 2nd turn after 5km marker to just after the first corner”), another map or an image.
    - Track length must be 4.0-6.5km.

    Entries close at 5:00pm (noon) ACDT (Australian Central Daylight Time) on Wednesday February 26. This is 01:30am GMT on the same day.

    @Qingwa Yes and no – that is the original F1 circuit, but I meant the current IndyCar circuit. I meant to include in my post, but I forgot :P

    It doesn’t really matter which track your new one connects to anyway because the same area.

    Pretty tricky, there’s not a whole lot of options that don’t result in dull 90 degree corners. The segment between 1km and 2km is not quite ideal, but it’s hard to come up with something that’s (semi-) safe without destroying any buildings.

    Pit lane is the same as the current configuration.

    28,5m short, I hope it’s still valid, if not, i’ll change it.
    Pit lane is along E Ocean Blvd, clockwise, starting at the 3km dot.

    Same pitlane as now, though I’d imagine Bernie would put a permanent facility there.

    The long straight could be really fun with the new V6 Turbo engines..
