    Huarney circuit, Peru (Clockwise)

    Length 9.4 mi (15.4 km) (The maximum length is apparently 15 km, but I am going to assume that no track will be counted that has a km length with the number behind its decimal point higher than 15)

    This circuit is located in the Peruvian Andes, with a 2.5 mi (4 km) straight on a highway and a high banking that goes over the highway as a bridge. The circuit has 400 feet of elevation change and in addition to the straight, it has some really twisty and technical sections also.

    @mfreire I assume you’ve linked the wrong track?

    http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=6517636

    Oslo Norway Circuit, Anti-clockwise, and I think 45 corners. I know the 4km straight isn’t technically straight, but it’s still 100% flat, plus both lanes would be used to make it extremely wide. Other than that, the road at the end of the straight would be converted to a temporary banking (so the left hander exiting the 4km straight) and also the right hander section of that as well would be converted to a temporary banking (I’m sure with today’s technology it’s not out of the question to be able to be done safely and well).

    A quick note. When the circuit comes to the first roundabout, instead of following it as it shows it would just go straight over it. I wasn’t really paying attention to what I was doing. Also, this same thing is to be applied to the bit of circuit that is at the 10km mark exactly. It shouldn’t follow the roundabout, it should go straight over it.

    As for the rest of the track, it is essentially made up of three types of corners. The most of them are quick 3 part chicanes and high speed sweepers following the road, and then on top of that there are a few tight a twisty bits.

    I think the most unrealistic section of the circuit is probably from the 6km mark to the 8km mark. It’s a bit high speed for the bends and the thinness of the road. Assuming the roads could be widened I don’t think it’d be a huge issue, but still maybe it wouldn’t work. I like that bit though. Maybe a way to slow the cars down before the bridge would make it fine, but I couldn’t think of anything at the time, perhaps using some of the grassy area just above the circuit just before it hits the bridge.

    Thanks for your submissions. They were all equally enjoyable to look at. However, there was one that was more equal than others. The circuit was brilliantly drawn, with the required long straight, as well as a continuum of fast, winding corners. Congratulations, @philereid .

    Thanks @chingh It was certainly a different challenge and I enjoyed that!

    In stark contrast to a really long F1 circuit being added to the calendar, a really short one is going to be added as well. The lap count wants to be around 100 laps, so the circuit must be between 3km and 3.2km. It’s not much leeway, but the circuit is quite small so it shouldn’t be too bad.

    Rules:

    – Between 3km and 3.2km.
    – Can be purpose built or street.
    – It must be suitable for F1, so nothing ridiculously tight to add corners. It’s a shorter circuit, so less corners are to be expected.
    – Must include a pit-lane.

    Deadline is sometime over the weekend! Good luck.

    Man it’s tough to get it exactly between 3 and 3.2. I went back to my old stomping grounds and found some streets in Cincinnati. Obviously, some would have to be widened and a couple abandoned buildings torn down to help provide better run off/build a pit complex. Pit lane would either be on State Ave. or Queen City Ave. LOTS of elevation change.

    New track between Glasgow and Edinburgh, between 3 and 3.2 km without pit lane, the elevation changes are amazing! http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=6524041

    I redesigned this closed circuit.

    This one goes to @mathers it looks like a proper fun track that does! It looks almost like an enlarged go-kart track! So, over to you.

    Thanks @philereid !

    We’ve got lots of great circuits around the world that aren’t used for Formula One, then we end up with the ones that are actually on the calendar that sometimes leave a little to be desired. I want to you to pick a circuit from the 2015 calendar and on the site of the track, create something totally different. You can keep three corners and three straights from the existing circuit, otherwise, everything else must either be reprofiled or totally changed.
