Anything ajokay can do I can do better… or, in this case worse
About as obscure a country as you’ll get, it does have a rather unusual shape which makes for an interesting layout. The ‘Formerly Soviet Sweeps’ are designed to be like Turn 8 at Istanbul Tajikistan is so mountainous- it’s known as the Switzerland of Central Asia- so there can be some interesting elevation changes in there too. The dashed lines surrounding parts of the circuit are grandstands. It’s probably my favourite design
The start finish runs along the border with Poland. I had to add a couple of chicanes- at Kiev and the Crimea- for safety reasons
Not much to say about this, it’s fairly boring. But it does pass Santa’s house up in Lapland!
Russia is the longest country on Earth, thus the Siberiaokruh Circuit would be the longest track in F1. The drivers will reach speeds of well over 200mph on the long Mongol straight, through a scaled down Ural Mountains, and there’s a stadium section around the Kamchatka peninsula (which for reasons unknown I labelled on the map as ‘Kamat’!)
Well it’s in the news at the moment and it has a decent shape for an F1 track. But like aj I found the North East area a bit tricky, which led to the formation of the alliterative ‘Mickey Mouse of Manama’. The long curves on the west coast look pretty cool though, and there are two good overtaking spots
The Pakistani Motorsport Association will presumably be boycotting any races at this circuit, because not only did I claim all of Kashmir for India, I pinched even more land north of Kashmir too!
I actually did two different versions of this track which looked completely different, because the countless Arctic islands leave plenty of room for interpretation
PS, the eagle eyed amongst you might have noticed that the name Bobby Robson is very faintly visible in a lot of my maps. That’s not a fancy watermark like Ajokay’s, it was just the book by paper was resting upon!
