New Track Design

Ok, here it is. I have it in PDF format. It transfers better from the CAD. Please post any questions regarding the track. Also, I would appreciate a critique of the track from any. For purposes of scale, the width of the track at the start/finish line is 60'.

Please critique.

Thanks,

Matt

Either I'm not using the right program or something happened because I couldn't make out a track outline in that picture. I suppose the other possibility is that it's really faint; if you've read through the thread on track safety, you should know that I don't see so well.

Its a PDF of a 36" x 48" blueprint. Very light until you start zooming in. The transfer from CAD to PDF takes away some of the fine differences in line weights. Hope you can make it out. Image files come out terrible.

Thanks,

Matt

I faakin love it!

That kind of and infield gives huge number of variants,just make sure each and every possibility is covered, regarding stray cars/bikes. Make sure none of those can re-enter the circuit at a place somebody might get a nasty surprise, by using apropiate barriers and gravel pits. You will need to use the infield smartly so thet your track is not a glorified oval with eternal left hands and I'd love to see a detailed infiel proposal.

From what i see ,it looks very professional and advanced.

It also looks like you guys have lots of financial capability!

Good Looking track Matt.

Where is it located and what will be the distance?

Lots of new tracks in the SE US now.

Stark FL, Salsbury NC are two new tracks.

Along with all the other tracks, Roebling Road, Savanah GA, Sebring, Moroso FL, Barber in AL, Road Atlanta, Teledega GP,

Would love to know more. I rent tracks and put on driving schools severl times a year.

Track length is 2.6 miles. Minimum track width is 36' up to 60'. 10,300 square foot clubhouse, 104 trackside condos each with their own 32' x 32' garage, 210 16' x 24' garages and 148 acres for future development outside the track for motorsports industrial, commercial and retail. All FIA standards are clear on the track. We have an oversize pit lane, 30' pit boxes and an excellent location which I will reveal when we get a contract on the land (hopefully in the next few weeks).

I posted on the other board I didn't know where the Stark FL track is but now I remember. Its a rather small and narrow track.

Our facility is planned on 350 acres and is top of the line in alot of ways.

Very soon my design will be going to the engineers so any feedback is greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Matt

No. Not billions. When you consider costs of construction of new F1 tracks from $300 - $500 million, this in no way even approaches that. I am not at liberty to say what the cost is but I can say that if things go as planned in the next few weeks, we will be ready to begin final approvals for construction.

Not sure which direction its going to run in but for me on first impressions...the pit exit whichever way fires the cars straight out into the racing line.

More comments once I've had time to look properly

Tried the zoom last night, but no dice. I still couldn't see the outline of the track itself.

The pits have been redesigned more times than anything. What we ultimately have arrived at is a pit system based on plenty of run out and visibility. To properly make the pit exits safer would be to slow down the on track traffic more in both areas. The pit exit (counter-clockwise running) brings the cars out on track close to the racing line but the hairpin is a late apex so we are estimating that it will not be as bad. The only other solution is a complete redesign. Still working on it. Good eye.

Thanks

Matt
