Just noticed that in my post I forgot to update my track description when I edited the link. That layout is supposed to be 4.45km, and 19-ish turns.13th June 2016, 10:54 at 10:54 am #322158
I will judge in 24h.14th June 2016, 11:22 at 11:22 am #32231514th 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!14th June 2016, 18:27 at 6:27 pm #322346
Any restrictions on a location? Cuz I love this one.14th June 2016, 18:29 at 6:29 pm #322347
No restrictions on location!16th June 2016, 20:27 at 8:27 pm #322518sam3110Participant
Pits would be along Avenue Kleber, as would the start finish, despite the way I have mapped it out here16th June 2016, 20:48 at 8:48 pm #322519MathersParticipant
The Glasgow City Grand Prix Street Circuit: 2.84km
Runs clockwise, pit lane leads off Western Hairpin.17th June 2016, 14:07 at 2:07 pm #322625
I’m still thinking..please wait for me!17th June 2016, 14:55 at 2:55 pm #322653
Decided for the Figure-8 option. Know this location well and thought it would be fun to have the S/F and the pits on a bridge.

I’ll give my verdict within the next 24hrs. Thanks for all the submissions!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.21st June 2016, 16:12 at 4:12 pm #323187MathersParticipant
Thank you very much!
Next up: A number of circuits have been on the F1 calendar over the years, and most of them no longer host the series. Your challenge is to take a circuit no longer on the F1 calendar and change it to entice modern F1 back. You can redesign the entire circuit, you can add a new section to what is already there, or you can simply reprofile a few corners. All I want is something that is different to what currently exists at that circuit. As I know this is a very broad criteria, if you’ve got two submissions, I want to see them!
Good luck!22nd June 2016, 0:27 at 12:27 am #323198sam3110Participant
Brands Hatch. Redone the GP circuit as it is too short for modern F1 in my opinion. Kept the paddock circuit intact, build a new Pitlane and garages though to bring it up to speed. A flowing but challenging track, with no artificial overtaking spots, but good drivers would still find a way past.
