    @philereid and @npf1 both designed a very good track, but the first one is more exciting in my opinion.
    So @philereid, over to you!

    Thanks @toti

    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!

    I dunno where the circuit was actually is located, so I just made this at that airport in Berlin
    Pit Straight is about 410m.

    Since there is no distance limit for the Le Mans and Nurburgring porition of this challenge, I am going to take a big chance and submit an insanely long circuit. This circuit is 28.9 mi (46.8 km) of gloriously sineuous public roads formed together plus half of the existing Le Mans 24H La Sarthe circuit (it’s about half, I think). This circuit has probably around 300 corners, and a race here would have to be run like a rally, most likely, with the cars setting off at certain time intervals. All of the straights on this circuit are 1.4 miles and shorter. Most if not all of the roads here would have to be widened a bit for racing use, but considering the lots of open space in this part of France, these roads can be widened, definitely. A circuit like this would be extremely difficult to manage, of course- but this is all a hypothetical contest anyway.

    @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.

    Berlin ePrix redesign:

    http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=6548750

    2.44km, pit lane on the inside as shown.

    The pit straight has a very slight curvature, conforming to the hangers(?) (and grandstands in between). Turn 1 is sweeping and fast, a little like the new Silverstone Turn 1. Also like Silverstone is turns 2/3, forming a complex similar to the new Arena section, which I have found has made for some good racing in recent years. Turns 4 and 5 lead on to the back straight, which leads to the hairpin Turn 6 – a passing opportunity. The track turns back on itself with turns 7 and 8, ???? left at Turn 9, which then leads to the tightening Turn 10. A medium-length straight (by Formula E standards) leads to the hairping turn 10, followed by a more sweeping Turn 11. A shortish straight leads to the turn 12-13 chicane, which is similar to Albert park’s final two corners but with a much shorter straight in between.
