I also forgot to say, everything within the area can be used. All areas of water or anything like that can be taken as being filled it.29th July 2014, 19:00 at 7:00 pm #268717
Thanks @andae23 . I have to admit, I quite liked mine. Sometimes I do tracks which aren’t that great but this one I enjoyed making. The other tracks were also tracks I’d love to see in place of some of the current tracks we have on the calendar as well.
Right then, as for my challenge. Bernie has been fired, and has left behind a lot of money to be spent on a new facility (whilst this information was not necessary, it’s nice to think about sometimes). The new head of F1 has decided that they want a new race in Denmark. The new head is also a fan of Magnussen, so this may well explain the choice. An area has been delegated to be the location of the new circuit, and must be built within this area:
There are 5 things that the circuit must adhere to:
- Between 4km and 7.5km
- No more than 15 corners
- If you are creating an clock-wise circuit, there must be a sweeping left hander, and if you are creating an anti-clockwise circuit there must be a sweeping right hander. (This does not stop you having more sweeping corners, but there must be at least one of said corners)
- There can be a total of two 90 degree corners, but there can be none. This only refers to a 90 corner if it is a sharp turn (Turn 12 at Bahrain wouldn’t be classed as part of this criteria, but turn 1 at Austria would).
- The circuit between the 2-3km mark must come back within 100m of the pit straight, on the opposite side to where you would like to place your pits. Designing a pit-lane is not mandatory, just reference which side it is on.
This will end either of Friday at exactly the same time this is posted, or if there are quite a few entries, then I’ll extend it to Sunday at this time.28th July 2014, 13:44 at 1:44 pm #268563
Hamilton on Vergne. Very rarely do I shout ‘YYESS’ when an overtake happens, but that was just mega. It was similar to Alonso on Vettel at Silverstone.27th July 2014, 12:53 at 12:53 pm #26831922nd July 2014, 17:43 at 5:43 pm #26781512th July 2014, 22:02 at 10:02 pm #266454
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)
