While watching the race, i was thinking of what would be the best way to get rid of that annoying T10 chicane that everyone birates all the time, and I have some up with it! Of course, this is not realisic without ALOT of money, but still, could work…
I would propose a fly-over to create a track crossing. Accually an underpass would proberly work better in the atmosphere of the race, but I dont think that would be as easy to do (but what do i know :P). This then reverses the direction of the western loop. There is space for run-off at the end of the esplanade bridge, so no worries there. Keeping the old t12 Chicane means run-off isn’t needed at the old turn 10, and that chicane can go. I believe there is room at the end of Raffles Ave for the nessicary run-off there due to increased speeds.
The only issue that I can think of is that my proposed run-off at the old T9 (I put this on the map) isn’t really straight to the track. While this is not ideal, I believe it would still work well enough to not need something micky-mouse there.
Well I’ve just put too much thinking time into this little redesign, so leave you comments :P
