Nice work Dan! The first half of the Falkland Islands circuit reminds me of Caesars Palace – not good! But I agree with you on the Cyprus track, that is brilliant. I actually can’t pick any faults in it. :)
I think the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus might not agree with that Cyprus track Dan. Unless perhaps their President was allowed to hand out the trophies on the podium!
On the subject of Cyprus, y’know what would be cool? A Famagusta street circuit. For those who haven’t heard of it, Famagusta is a kind of ghost town that has been left untouched since the Turks invaded abck in the seventies. I’d love to go and have a look around, but it’s closed off to tourists apparently
These two countries haven’t featured in World News for many years, so I thought I’d remind people of their existence by circuiting them.
From the start line the circuit climbs, quite steeply up the back straight until it reaches its peak at Benghazi. It then levels out along to Tripoli, before steeply descending down through the s-bends on the Niger border.
Thought it might be interesting to try and make a circuit out of such a long, thin country…but it wasn’t. I added in the hairpin switchbacks to try and give it some sort of main feature, and whilst I imagine the southern hairpin to be banked, AVUS style, the rest of the of the track is dull.
Nice one xD I like Chile, just maybe make the straights straighter and take away some of the akward curves.
Ooh, glad to seen this has been ressurected! I might have a go at Chile when I can be bothered

Here you go:
Best I could do. The data for Varosha – the area of Famagusta that is closed off – isn’t in the GMaps Pedometer, so I had to improvise. It’s also quite crude … but then, it’s 1:30 in the morning here.
Ah I almost did one for the world! I couldn’t work out how I wanted it to go though.
Yeah, it didn’t turn out the way I wanted it to, either. World maps tend to be centred on one of three cities: London, Tokyo and New York. The map I used is a London-based one, which is the most common. I wanted a Tokyo-centric map, because then I would have been able to use the Bering Strait to connect Russia to Alaska and later make a giant loop through the Caribbean without it apearing too fiddly or too busy. The third type of map, the New York-based one, is horrible because Asia runs right through the edges of the map so you get the world’s largest continent cut in two. They’re only realy used by the American military, though.
Chile just looks like Paul Ricard!
What about the palm island in Dubai
It’s very suited to modern F1 circuits. It’s in the desert and goes Straight, Hairpin, Straight, Hairpin etc.
The Spanish and the Portuguese circuit, both can be combined to the Iberian circuit
My Europe track. Two long straights connected by a parabolica like corner. Banking around the bay of Biscay and Iberian peninsular. Crimea section if its getting to high speed. China like corner around Corsica.
The chicanes are added both because of safety reasons and because of Singapore and Brunei
EDIT: Added start line and pit lane
Kudos NetBurst for making your such a neat design!
