As was announced earlier today, Thailand will host a night race in 2014. But the circuit lay-out is yet to be determined. For those of you who get carried away rather quickly (like me), will want to design the lay-out themselves. So if you do, go to Google Pedometer and create your own vision of the 2014 Thailand GP!
The circuit is far from perfect: at locations a and b, the bridges feature elevation change, so we could end up seeing cars take to the sky if the bridges don’t get changed (that’s a bit dangerous I guess..). Do you have a better idea?
It’s very difficult to make a good circuit, because everything is so cramped. What’s more, this is in a residential area, so it’s going to cut hundreds of people of from the outside world. But Sanamluang Park is one of the few places I can find in the city that could actually support the pit lane.
The only other alternative I have is this, again with the pits in Sanamluang Park:
It should cut off less people – in fact, it might cut off no people – but it’s probably in violation of FIA regulations that actively discourage (if not outright forbid) circuits from using two sides of a dual carriageway as a circuit.
