Because I like doing it for no reason whatsoever, here is a satellite view of the circuit. http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=6974237
Looks to be about 2.75km long, and the longest straight is about 600m, which I think is pretty much on par with the other longest straights in Formula E right now.
Turn 9 and 10 looks pointlessly awkward. I like turn 5. Unfortunately it has the silly chicanes of turn 11,12 and turn 13,14, but I guess they are necessary. I think my favourite thing is the fact this track goes over what I expect to be quite a busy highway. Overall, the track doesn’t look super exciting, but does look (to my eye at least) that there could some good racing here.17th October 2016, 16:45 at 4:45 pm #330645
So, apparently I’m not so in the know with this track, but I believe that this is the circuit that WTCC race in Marrakech used for this year (new for this year). This is a redesign of the original circuit, and boy is it far, far better than what was originally there. The old circuit used to be awful, so I’m glad there has been this change.
Can’t believe I completely missed that it had changed though.17th October 2016, 11:13 at 11:13 am #330585
Here’s a pretty fun overtake.21st September 2016, 19:52 at 7:52 pm #329074
Also, I must say I quite like this circuit. It has no silly chicanes and some flowing corners too. Looking forward to this one quite a bit. Plus, the scenery should be amazing.21st September 2016, 19:49 at 7:49 pm #329073
Create a G-Map of the circuit (it’s pretty close but not perfect), in case any one wanted to have a look. http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=69581043rd July 2016, 15:45 at 3:45 pm #323875
What a great calendar. It’s still a shame they have to have the big game over the winter period, but as soon as April starts, that looks pretty amazing. Also, very excited to hear about what Rd 5 will be (I believe 9 is supposed to be a different London round?). I really hope both double headers are approved.21st June 2016, 15:51 at 3:51 pm #323184
Just a little over 24 hrs later, I have decided that @mathers is the winner! Congratulations.20th June 2016, 15:33 at 3:33 pm #323092
I’ll give my verdict within the next 24hrs. Thanks for all the submissions!14th June 2016, 18:29 at 6:29 pm #322347
No restrictions on location!14th June 2016, 16:43 at 4:43 pm #322344
Thanks @toti. My challenge:
Oh my, Bernie has gone mad (or at least, madder than usual), and it is your job, the unfortunate souls who have to put up with Bernie’s nonsense, to make the most of what he has suggested. Bernie wants a new street circuit, but he wants one with a twist. Bernie wants a street circuit that is only 2.5km-3km long, has one corner which utilises either a 270 degree turn around a roundabout, or a figure 8 layout.
– Can destroy one building/set of buildings that are not people homes, but only if there is a really good reason for it. Creating space for run off is not a good reason, but a pass through to get from one section of road to another is a good reason.
– Roads must be wide enough, or sufficient space to be widened. However, one section of road, no more than 300m, may be a tighter bit of road.
– There must be at least one 600m straight.
– A pit-lane must be designed, or described.
So, we’re going for a silly, but realistic F1 circuit, that is a lot of fun to drive! Good luck all!10th June 2016, 15:17 at 3:17 pm #32178428th May 2016, 9:50 at 9:50 am #32075620th May 2016, 18:56 at 6:56 pm #320427
Hey guys, apologies for the delay. I keep on not getting the notifications through on email so miss a lot of the posts. Also, it’s nice to be back doing this. I hit a design burnout and wasn’t particularly enjoying it, but I feel good about it again.
Anyway, thanks for the win!
So, my challenge starts like this. You’re just driving along at an F1 circuit of your choice that isn’t a street circuit, when all of a sudden, oh no! A meteor has come down and crashed into one half of the circuit that you are currently at (can literally be any non-street F1 circuit, and which half it has crashed into is your choice).
So, the way this works is, find the furthest east part of the circuit, and the furthest west point of the circuit (or furthest north, furthest south). Find out that distance and half it. Split the circuit down the middle, top to bottom, or left to right. Which ever half you choose to have been hit by a meteor, you have free reign on how the circuit will be rebuilt.
– Circuit can not be more than 1km longer or shorter than the original.
– Can not design outside of the current limit of the racing facility.
– If you take away the original pit-lane/straight of the circuit, you must either design a new one, or state where the new one is.
That’s it. Hope you enjoy this one.16th May 2016, 16:56 at 4:56 pm #32005428th February 2016, 20:54 at 8:54 pm #313467
I only have the HD package but can still view Sky F1.
Wasn’t Sky F1 supposed to move over to the Sky Sports package instead of the HD package, or is that something that was never confirmed?
