@vmaxmuffin I know where they are, but I was curious because when opening that link it says 30.8 miles, so I was curious if there was a smaller area we needed to be doing it. As the challenge appears to be just anywhere within the Rockies, I thought that it must be a mistake maybe.25th March 2015, 10:47 at 10:47 am #295074
@joey-poey I can’t see the area that has been marked out. I’m not sure if anyone else is having this issue.23rd March 2015, 11:36 at 11:36 am #29494920th March 2015, 9:03 at 9:03 am #294831
After watching the race itself I agree that there are some problems that I didn’t see before. One is that the purple colouring of the fastest lap on the already dark background actually made it quite difficult to see what time it was sometimes. Another is that I do miss having the running order on the left. I think they could still do it they just need to shrink the new graphics down a touch to make it happen. Other than a few missing features, I do really like the new style. Just needs refining.18th March 2015, 19:30 at 7:30 pm #294780
Thanks @vmaxmuffin ! A little bit of back and forth happening here. :P
Right, sorry about the delay in coming up with something, but I was really struggling with what to come up with. I’ve decided that the task this time is to come up with a hybrid, street/permanent circuit within a major city from around the world.
-Either 1/3rd street and 2/3rd permanent, or 1/3rd permanent and 2/3 street (it doesn’t have to be exact, just try to follow it as closely as possible).
-5-7km in length.
-Pit-lane must be designed.
-If your circuit is 1/3rd permanent, it may only have one corner sharper than 90 degrees on the permanent part. If the circuit is 2/3rd permanent, it may only have two corners sharper than 90 degrees on the permanent part.
-The permanent part(s) do not all have to be together.
One thing you can do is that if you can find a location within a city that is just a few roads with no buildings, you can destroy those roads and create an area for a permanent part of your circuit.
Good luck.14th March 2015, 5:19 at 5:19 am #294267
I love them for the most part, I think it’s a really nice and sleek design. My only issue is that the running order displayed on the left seems to take up much more of the screen now. It doesn’t seem as far left as it could be which I think could be an issue. Otherwise, I like the change.12th March 2015, 17:14 at 5:14 pm #294129
7.7612km, 20 corners, clockwise.
T1 is similar to Copse at Silverstone, but it goes on for longer and has a large turning radius meaning it wouldn’t be as quick, but it is still certainly a quick turn 1. There is then a short run to T2, a quick sweeping left hander. Another short run follows to T3, a slightly tighter that T2 but still sweeping right hander. This is followed quickly by T4, a slightly tighter version of T3, but to the left. A short run comes next followed by T5, a very quick flat out sweep to the right. Another short straight to T6, a right handed hairpin that opens up on exit to allow for quick acceleration out of it. A medium length straight comes after that and leads into T7, quite a long and sweeping right hander which should be flat. The cars then have to switch sides to enter T8, a medium speed left handed corner.
T9,10 comes next, both forming a similar corner to that as Malaysia’s T5,6, but a little bit shorter overall. This very quickly leads into T11, the slowest corner on the track, quite a slow right hand hairpin. This leads straight into T12, a very easy swerve to the left. Between T11 and T13 is in reality a medium length straight. T13 comes at the end of this, a sort of quite fast almost sweep kink to the left, similar to T1 at Hockenheim, but with a more open radius apex. T14 follows, and is essentially the same corner as the one before, but has a slightly less open radius, making it more of a kink.
T15 is a long sweeping corner to the right, which is followed by a short straight down to T16, a very quick sweep to the left, which would be on the limit of being flat, but it should be. A more open sweep comes next, a long right handed one of T17. T18 follows after a short straight and is essentially the same as T17. T19,20 comes next and is a long sweeping style chicane almost. Cars flick to the left with a sweep and then have to quickly switch to the right for a tighter corner, although it’s still open radius.
For this track, there are 7 total layouts. There’s a west, north and south circuit, as well as west+north, west+south, north+south and the full thing. Pits and how the circuits join are shown.9th March 2015, 23:40 at 11:40 pm #2938436th March 2015, 17:05 at 5:05 pm #293633

Me and a few guys should have our team sorted by the time Sebring comes around. Also now that they are grouping all of the GT3 events together to make a mini endurance championship, we’ll probably be on board to do them all. Already done Daytona (which stupidly I stayed up all the way through for), so we’re looking forward to doing more on better circuits.3rd March 2015, 12:59 at 12:59 pm #2934492nd March 2015, 22:14 at 10:14 pm #293426
@mfreire In all honesty I was hoping someone would go mad with it. Not too mad though as I’d say it still had to be realistic :P A 7 lap race I think that circuit would end up being. The entry passes my usual test that I do when working out if it could, theoretically, work.2nd March 2015, 10:19 at 10:19 am #2933751st March 2015, 22:17 at 10:17 pm #293356
Alrighty then. I wasn’t entirely sure which challenge I wanted to put forward so I’ll just put both up and you guys can choose which one you want to do.
So, the first challenge is similar to this one, taking a longer track and modifying it. This time however you have a choice of remaking Le Mans or the Nurburgring Nordschleife + GP circuit.
The second challenge is to redesign the newly unveiled Berlin Formula E Circuit using the same area as it (or near enough the same area).
Rules for first challenge:
– Must use at least 50% of old circuit. (I wont be too strict on this though if it’s not exact, but make it as close to 50-50 as possible)
– Assume all road around Le Man are able to be closed and widened if need be. Also assume all the area inside is usable as well.
– Assume all areas of the Nurburging within the current circuit are available to use as well, but nothing outside the current circuit is.
Rules for second challenge:
– 2-3km long
– At least one 400 meter straight
That’s about it. Good luck!
