I like your design style with a tendency to use long sweepers. In purpose-built racetracks where there is sufficient runoff space to include those in a design, they can be pretty cool. It is them that make Athens, Brazilia and Winnipeg special.

The stop-and-go oval circuit layout at Brazilia is quite unique. I like that but maybe the "oval specialists" out there would not. It should be pretty interesting to see how they fare against their "road ringer" competitors on this circuit.

At Athens, I would suggest adding a testing oval for use by manufacturers as a continuation of the long curve in the lower left part of the design to go all around the rest of the circuit and then some. That would keep the circuit operational for the time when there is no racing action.

Your characteristic corner shape is everywhere on your most recent two tracks. My guess is the Circuit de Macarena has got a boyfriend whose name is Circuit de Vitorino. The corner shapes of that one surely look quite different. Would you like to have a go at designing it?

Don't think I've commented on this thread before. I like seeing the great steps forward and you can see improvements in every design! I especially like the tracks Brasilia, Circuit du Versailles and Hot springs. Keep it up!

Also, if anyone wants to tell me how to get things to snap to the terrain in sketchup, that would be greatly appreciated, so I don't just have to make flat tracks.

In Sketchup things don't "snap" to the terrain.

The most simple topography is plateau designs. Level sections of circuit linked by uphill and downhill straights.

The second option is to have the circuit flat but add in small hills or scenery, around it, the circuit my still be flat but you give the impression of elevation.

Anything more than that gets really complicated and time consuming

... and that's where BTB comes into the picture

I seriously wonder how you guys find enough time to work on your pieces of art. I just don't seem to have the time, otherwise I'd probably asked for software recommendations and other advice already. Back in the day when I found this board, I was seriously bored but now, my other interests keep me busy. Hence the lack of new hand-drawn circuit designs from me. I have a few raw ideas / concepts for circuits which I haven't looked at in years, such as the skislope circuit, built in a former mountain downhill skiing resort where it just didn't snow anymore for a couple of years. But I digress.
May I ask you how much time you spend on your circuit design, compared to other interests? Thanks for info.

Well, it all depends on how much time i have. Lately (the last year or so) I've had much less time than before. And BTB takes quite some time.

Also, having spent so much time here, and seeing so many thracks, participating in so many discussions about different aspects of track design changed so many things... Before, I saw all the good things about my designs and concepts - now I see all the bad things... why this wouldn't work, why that wouldn't work...

This, together with the dramatic fall of active participation here, no wonder I've been doing it less and less.

The wiggly line takes seconds, the inspiration or correct looking wiggly line takes longer. once happy, sketchup gets you your basic outline pretty quickly using the offfset.
It's when you then start to add in circuit furniture like run-off and gravel traps that it can become tedious so 20 minutes here or 30 minutes there.
That's why recently I've not posted many what I'd call complete circuits.

Having said that I'm putting the finishing touches to one at the moment that only made it to that stage due to my being off work at the moment.

Ocala Racing Club

A 2.87-mile track located outside of Ocala, FL. Its primary use would be as a club track (and could be part of a country club), but it could be used for racing as well. Runs clockwise.
