@necrodethmortem The problem is the current pit building could not contain all teams and cars. There are too few garages, as well as virtually no place for the FIA and FOM rooms. That’d be more of a problem to me than the VIPs and Paddock Club, which used to be dumped at the paddock, near the Tarzanbocht anyway.
One of the things I liked in the original Gran Turismo games was the ability to run alternate layouts at the same location, and how reverse tracks could alter the feel of a track as well. Since Bahrain seems to be the ideal candidate to have a severe turnaround as far as layout is concerned, I had a go.
Using the inroad of turn one creates a Hockenheim kind of T1, followed by a part of the ‘Endurance lay out’, rejoining the track going the ‘wrong way’ into the back straight, a hairpin and another straight, for that Avus-ring feel. Different final turn, and I think this’d be much more of a high-speed, high-wear track.
A version with some more, longer sweeps.
Also, please excuse my over-Tilke-fying of the Bahrain track.. http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=5717493
