I have attached my design for a circuit near Havana.

The first one is the overall track that can be divided into 2 smaller tracks ( Red & Blue) with a central paddock and 2 pitlanes. There are no actual straights so I have divided the track into coloured sections to help identify the different parts.

The light gray bits are long curves.
The yellow section features a series of fast left right curves that rise and fall,they should offer a challenge to man and machine.
The red section starts with an uphill part into a blind right followed by a curve to the left and the features a blind down hill left.
The orange piece features a tight left followed by a right left that should be good for overtaking.
The brown piece has a quick uphill right followed by a slower down hill left.
In the blue section there is right into a hairpin that will make choosing braking points difficult.
The light green section has a multiple apex left that are both slow and fast and should present a challenge to drivers.
The purple piece is a fast section that links the tracks.

The area opposite the main start finish appears to be higher than the pits and should offer good spectator viewing down into pits and the yellow section.

I'm interested, but pretty sure I can't even come close to that previous entry

This one is going to @wolfhound

Although not specifically asked for, I appreciate seeing three different layouts that could fit into this small piece of land. I think the curvies are a little excessive and lacking on straight bits for speed, but certainly it will challenge a driver's technical abilities.

Your turn to make up a challenge!

Here is a challenge. MSV recently bought an ex military airbase in France your challange is to design the track. In order to make it financially viable it will need to be able race circuit, school and track days etc. Include the pitlane(s) and paddock(s).
Here is the site co-ordinates.
49.629634, 3.539293

https://www.google.ie/maps/place/4937'46.7"N+332'21.4"E/@49.629634,3.5371043,706m/data=!3m2!1e3!4b1!4m2!3m1!1s0x0:0x0

This should be the pedometer link

Can you give us a little more specifics about what you need for "circuit", "school", and "track days"? Specific lengths or features you need to see?

I would expect that there will be more than one track layout with at least two options as to what circuit to use as the owner will like to be able to run two activities at the same time.
I don't know if you have track days in the states but they are where you can bring your road (or race car) and practice your driving skills on a race track normally with others unless you have lots of money so that you can play on your own.

However I would like people to use their imagination.

Wolfhound, you have asked about this location previously. http://tentenths.com/forum/showthread.php?t=145830

MSV's plans include a hotel development and keeping the runway alive as a private airfield.

without knowing much more such a challenge is difficult in the extreme

All I was looking for is a track layout with a few options.

It's a fantasy. Lay out whatever you like. Maybe use up some of the existing roads, re-purpose the hangars into a paddock or a hotel.

Hopefully I'm not the only entrant here. I've got a set of 4 tracks all utilizing the same areas. Races can't be run simultaneously, though, because the circuits do overlap each other a bit. Enjoy!

I think the area around the Oval can be repurposed as a hotel, sort of like what you see in Sector 3 as Yas Marina. I didn't have a good idea where to put the pit lane, as we'd obviously need more than one depending on which circuit was in use. But I'm assuming that the long straight on the west taxiway would be a good place, with its entrance just ahead of the 90-degree bend. Circuit runs anti-clockwise, by the way.

Perhaps not quite what was asked for but here we go

Area for the 1km oval

This is a 1km aero straight , new additions would include turning areas at each end.

This is the 5km main circuit. It runs anti-clockwise so as drawn the pit straight goes up into the first sequence of corners.before running back parallel peeling off around the end of the runway. The pitlane isn't the biggest but the hanger area to the real is the real paddock space with resident track cars housed in the various hangers.

Finally the roadways in this area don't lend themselves that easily to racing, so I'm designating this the driving school/road handling course and rally areas.

This leaves the administrative side of the base for hotel and conference spaces, all the while leaving the runway open.

I guess I should note that I'm just guessing on the length of my track. I used a google maps screen shot and drew my track in AutoCAD. I didn't have a real guideline on scale or anything, so I might be way off. Comparing my GP track at 6.3km to ScotBrut's track at 5.0km, mine is probably longer than that. Maybe even closer to 7km.

Just verified it with gmap-pedometer:

http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=6794042

Says it's 7.66km...makes it longer than Spa.
