I am going on holiday for a few days, to Cologne, so I want you guys to build a street circuit in this area.
4.5-7km and needs to be mostly roads, one or two minor built sections are ok, but no purpose built circuits guys. You have until midnight on Saturday night (that’s when I’m back)26th March 2016, 14:17 at 2:17 pm #3160447th March 2016, 22:35 at 10:35 pm #3147815th March 2016, 7:55 at 7:55 am #314377
Some lovely, challenging test tracks here, each with their own unique qualities, and there are reasons to give each of you top spot, but I am going to give this one to Browny, his track just edged it for me, congratulations!1st March 2016, 18:43 at 6:43 pm #313687
Haas are serious about Formula1
So serious that they have decided to follow Ferraris lead and build their own Maranello.
This is Kannapolis, a Nascar hotbed where many teams are based, and they have approached you to built their track.
All they want is a straight of at least 1km, a variety of corners for testing purposes and some elevation would be nice too but isn’t necessary. The circuit must be between 4.5 and 7.5km and built within the 10 mile squared box drawn above.
Have fun, judging on Friday27th February 2016, 8:16 at 8:16 am #313405
Start finish line is Lakeside, the track hugs the lake before peeling off onto the main base tarmac for some sweet esses, before working its way to the north of the base, where we turn around onto the main taxi-ing runway, where 2 long straights are broken up by a tight right hand corner, the second long straight flies into a very long left, before a couple of tricky corners at the end bring you back to the Lake and the start finish line19th February 2016, 8:08 at 8:08 am #312482
No renders, but here’s my preferences.
Ferrari: all red, black wings, tricolore on the airbox
Red Bull: no purple, no Red Bull written on the sidepods, silver from the cans incorporated more.
Mercedes: lose the black on the engine cover and have Petronas green on the endplates as well as the sidepods
Williams: martini colours to be extended to cover some of the sidepod and more of the side of the cockpit
Force India: more green and orange, lose the silver
Renault: Yellow with black and white details.
Toro Rosso: less red and more gold, a navy and gold car with no red apart from the hand painted Bull please.
Sauber: I like the blue and yellow, but I would have all white wings and more yellow on the airbox and engine cover
Mclaren: white car, rocket red swooshes etc like the old Vodafone chrome livery but in white.
Manor: fully black car with red and white sponsors and minor detailing
Haas: grey, red and white car, like a cross between McLaren and Manor from last season18th February 2016, 22:15 at 10:15 pm #312476
Tough choice, but in the end I choose VMaxMuffins Paris redesign, lots of great monuments, corners and overtaking opportunities17th February 2016, 11:39 at 11:39 am #312432

Berlin has had to relocate the ePrix for the Formula E round there recently, and now others are following suit. You need to take one of the existing (or scheduled but not yet raced) Formula E circuits and relocate it within the same city.
Track must be no longer than 4.5km and have at least 10 defined corners
Judging on Thursday sometime in the evening UK time11th February 2016, 8:27 at 8:27 am #312240
Although I mapped it out so you go up the main straight into the infield bit first, I would like to to judge it the other way round as I feel it flows a bit better that way and that first turn with another piece of track on the outside would be too dangerous. So the Pits and start finish would be on the straight where the 2km mark is and the chicane is the first corner, track sits at a smidge under 5km and features several long fast corners and a couple of great overtaking spots at the end of straights, not to mention a tricky tighter maggotts and becketts style first section.31st January 2016, 19:25 at 7:25 pm #311994
Ok some interesting circuits here.
Toti I like Crete as a location and the elevation would be nice, but I think the roundabouts would be a bit fiddly.
Mark that will be a hugely quick circuit, and the straight would be epic, but I think it’d be a bit too long.
Jason the harbour would be great to race around, I wish you could use the South side of the harbour and build a bridge across the narrow gap, it’d be a winner for sure then
But my winner is Browny, the turn 8 style marina is insane and having 2 different harbour backdrops would be great tv, so congratulations!28th January 2016, 21:29 at 9:29 pm #311945
Cheers, it helped that I have actually been to Malta and can vouch for how smooth the roads are for such a small country.
New competition time, you have been approached by Greece to build them a race track for Formula 1, but as they are so broke it has to be entirely made from current roads. They are looking to profit from tourists that can come to the race on the Sunday and be on the beach for the rest of the week, so on or near the coast is preferable. Track must be between 4 and 6.5km long.
Recap, in Greece, 4-6.5km long, near the coast, current streets only. Judging on Sunday at about 7pm GMT27th January 2016, 9:48 at 9:48 am #31183823rd January 2016, 12:34 at 12:34 pm #311714
3 very different circuits, Brownys a tight looking circuit in the heart of a historical city, Jasons an undulating circuit around a unique landmark and mark Adams a faster looking circuit around wide roads.
I am going to vote for @rubaru because a circuit with Edinburgh Castle in the backdrop would be amazing in my eyes.
