    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.

    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!

    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 GMT

    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.

    Congrats Jason

    Awesome, thanks Browny

    So, Formula E has announced that they are expanding the calendar, and they have asked you to pick a location for the next race.

    All they want from the circuit is somewhere in a central city location, in a major city in Europe. It doesn’t have to be the capital of the country, but it has to be a large metropolitan area. I want to see a track and pit lane (look at the innovative pits formula E already use)

    Good luck!

    At almost exactly 6km, the Glorious Leaders High Speed Super Pyongnang Speedway will be the fastest F1 circuit of all time.

    Based loosely on Sochi and Montreal, the pit lane would be incorporated into the main straight

    Pitlane to coincide with where the start end is, so a pretty small pitlane, with the entrance on the inside of the preceding chicane and the pits to the south of the track in the infield, with the exit feeding in after the turn 1 kink
