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.
I spend some, not all, of my free time on circuit design. I'm still in high school and I swim, so practice and homework gets in the way as well.

Circuito del Mediterraneo

A 3.0-mile clockwise circuit located on the Mediterranean Coast of Italy, not far from Rome. The grandstand designs I got from the 3D Warehouse, and I painted them with the Italian Flag colors.

That's interesting - because it's completely different with me: I remember in the early days, I had blot shapes in my head, sketched them on paper and then refined them.

But as the years went by, I m ore and more moved on from starting from general blot shapes and then refining them, and took on starting by one or two connected sections, and kept adding new sections until a closed circuit apepared. I might upload some of my initial pen sketches - they almost always look like a couple of different tracks sketched on each other - because there are some sections that never worked, so I discarded them - but no earsing ink lines So, my initial freehand trackline sketches mostly look like nonfigurative art really

But,. the main thing is that while earlier I started from the blot shape and went on refining it, nowadays I start from seperate sections and try to find a way to join them into a single circuit. So, at the end, the blot shape of my tracks is a surprise to me most of the time

Does my last track, or any of them for that matter, look a bit "Tilke-esque"? I think my last one looks a lot like Malaysia

For me, the last one you posted looks a bit like Mugello

Thanks for letting me know. When I first joined this board, I was at uni and mainly posted old designs or reworkings of old designs which I had designed with pencil and paper, old style, during when I was still in school.
But now ... work and other interests have let my focus slowly move away from track design.

You have posted some real beauties lately. I'm impressed. Syracuse is my favourite but I would prefer to run it in clockwise direction, with the runoff areas adjusted accordingly. And the best thing: all of these tracks flow well. Thank you for your contribution.

You seem to chop and change between allowing a paddock. Those without seem to suggest any straight will do.

I'm curious do you think of the pit and paddock during the initial designing?

Most of my tracks have a pit paddock. It is the building across from the grandstands. I may have called it a garage because that's what they are called here in America.
