    It’s not just the track itself that makes it bad, but the elevation and the surroundings as well. With my track you are guaranteed to get none of them.

    Here’s my attempt. Lots of awful corners, and a nice long straight section for no apparent reason.

    Ok, i’m going to choose a winner
    All tracks were terrible.
    But @andae23 , @ajokay, @npf1 and @kanil made their tracks in places that they could actually BE in f1 calendar lika Abu Dhabi or Valencia.
    @philereid made a track in some random remote city in Burma, but there was a bit of diversity in his track, and corners around 5km mark could be interesting.
    So, the winner is, in his third try @retardedf1sh !!! His completely boring track in some salty plains 150 km near the closest town is the worst circuit ever. (in my opinion)

    Thanks @qingwa . Pretty much messed that up.

    Here’s the next challenge:

    You must create a new track to a country that has never hosted a grand prix before (preferably European). Here’s a list of all countriesw that have hosted a race:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Formula_One_Grands_Prix

    Here are the rules:
    – It must be near a major city (approximately within 100 km radius)
    – It cannot be based on an existing circuit
    – It can be purpose-built or a street circuit
    – It must be 4.5 km and 7 km in length
    – It must have at least 15 corners but no more than 25 (based on your interpretation)
    – It must have a long straight for overtaking

    -Note
    I had a genius entry for @qingwa‘s challenge if I took the time to look, so I hope someone decides to do it again in the future :)

    Jakarta street circuit. 4.48km, 16 turns. ~700 meter main straight.

    A few roads might need widening, but it should work.

    Can’t fix the bugs in my entry above, So I’ve made a few changes in the entry below

    http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=6278536

    Note: I do hope the Interlagos-esqe flat-out sweepers at the start of the lap can be counted into a ‘Long Straight’.
