8km clock-wise circuit. There are 18 corners.
The biggest part of this track is the 2.2km straight. The feel of the track is that you travel down the 2.2km of the straight and then you work your way back through all the corners.
I’ve always wanted a circuit with a ridiculously long straight, which could possibly allow a pass and a re-pass.10th July 2014, 18:43 at 6:43 pm #26633710th July 2014, 12:22 at 12:22 pm #266324
I can’t seem to get gmap-pedometer to work properly. Every time I save a route, it keeps on deleting all the points bar the first one, and it says that the course is the length between the first and second points, of which the latter no longer exists. Anyone know a fix? :P I’m disappointed because I had a circuit I really liked.30th June 2014, 23:05 at 11:05 pm #264958
3.7km clock-wise, 13/14 corner circuit.
There are some technical areas, some relatively high speed sections and long enough straights to hopefully promote overtaking.25th June 2014, 12:02 at 12:02 pm #264397
4.9km circuit, 9 corners, about 25km from Naples City Centre.
The stadium section is entered with a fast right of T4 (similar to Hockenheim). The actual stadium section would be seated like a football stadium, with seating all the way around the edge. The fast right would go under the grandstands entering the “football stadium” and then cars would exit this stadium at the right of T8.
The idea is that it would literally be like entering, driving around and exiting a football stadium. Obviously there would also be a lot of grass runoff with gravel as well, because otherwise it wouldn’t look right. Also, the stadium wouldn’t come all the way up to the track, due to run the need for run-off areas.23rd June 2014, 17:58 at 5:58 pm #26427423rd June 2014, 17:36 at 5:36 pm #264272
@pezlo2013 Tt breaks the fun if you give me the win! :) Also, I don’t really have a good challenge at the moment, so feel free to take it. After all, it was your win.22nd June 2014, 21:31 at 9:31 pm #264201
Either Ricciardo on Hulk at T5, or Kvyat on Perez at the same turn. Probably Ricciardo as it was a last lap effort.16th June 2014, 19:43 at 7:43 pm #263180
6.16km clock-wise circuit with 17 corners.
Last used by F1 in 1996.
My philosophy was to try to extend each of the straights, and add extra to them, to both add overtaking spots and also even more character to the track, and to make it a challenge, with high speed zones and some difficult braking points.
The parts of the new circuit which incorporates the old track which are quite thin roads would be widened.
The chicane before the final turn was added due to the fact there wouldn’t be enough space for run off at the final turn with the speeds the cars would be doing. It also adds an opportunity to add a grandstand there.
The pits are to be exactly the same.
I also added a few extra lines for what could be used for other race series.11th June 2014, 14:23 at 2:23 pm #263018
http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=6335042 – Pitlane
Anti-clockwise 4.85km circuit. There are 18 turns.
T1 is just after the 4km marker, and the pits would reside on the outside of the track, on the area of grass available. The entry to the pit-lane starts before the kink, to make the pits actually long enough. The exit is a tunnel (same as Abu Double), though it could be made to be so it enters more straight just before t1.
- A section of 4+ esses (On the new section of track)
- An Anti-Clockwise direction
- Maximum of 3 90 degree corners (There are exactly 3)
- A corner reminiscent of any other corner on the current F1 Calendar (The kick which leads into T1 is the same as the kink in the Singapore GP straight)4th June 2014, 15:25 at 3:25 pm #262275
4.72km clock-wise circuit, 13 corners. Turn 1 is exactly where the 2km mark is, the quick right hander. The pit lane is created in the area with all the grass. It would be to the right of the track, with the entrance to the pits coming directly off of the right hander (drivers must stay right to show they are entering). The pits rejoin at the entrance to turn 2.3rd June 2014, 17:05 at 5:05 pm #262224
I’m going to end this one here. I think it has had a lack of entries due to not being able to see the rule set. So, this one goes to @vmaxmuffin whose track I think is excellent, and assuming the roads could be done in such a way that it wouldn’t be dangerous to use them, it would actually be a realistic event. Hopefully more people will enter for yours. It might be hard to judge the tracks if you can’t actually see them though.27th May 2014, 13:56 at 1:56 pm #261920
@retardedf1sh Shame that there were not that many entries. Still, I’ll take the win, and hopefully there are more around this time.
So, Bernie has decided that he wants a new street circuit located somewhere in a major city in Europe. All roads used for this circuit must be, or must be able to be, 3 lanes wide, with a preference of 4 wide.
- Must have no more than 18
- Must have more than 10 corners
- Must be between 3.5 and 6km in length
- The city must have an airport, or an airport within 20 miles of the city, and it must be a realistic candidate in terms of attendance.
Design away. Hopefully the rules are open enough that you can create some good tracks. This will end in 3 days from now, or later if there are quite a few entries. Good luck.21st May 2014, 17:27 at 5:27 pm #260919
