SKG should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Ok, as promised, more pics.

Full circuit: 4.8km
Short Circuit: 2.8km
Oval*: 2.2km

*The Oval isn't really an oval, more of a short loop. There is a wider area at the end of the pit straight for a chicane to be built if the cars will be reaching the first corner of the oval at dangerous speeds.

Well done.
You've made it look like the terrain is heavily involved in the tracks layout; very organic, very realistic.

The Short Circuit is my favorite.

A nice design indeed. I agree it's very natural looking. WTCC surely would love to visit there.

Thanks for the kind words fellas. I put lot of effort into this one, and it took a while to get right. Hopefully I'll have some more content soon.

Once again, here is a new one, more pics and details to follow once it is more complete. Tried to go for an old style circuit this time, taking inspiration from the older British circuits. More soon!

I think this track is pretty challenging for the drivers. Especially the part from the far north of the track to the south-east is a blast.
I'm not very fond of your solution of the pits. The entry is very unsafe, with the pointy side of a wall to close to the run-off area of a big brakingzone.
My solution would be to move the pits and paddock much further to the west, with the entry well into the straight, and the exit after the righthander.

Thanks for the comments. I can see your concern, Im not very happy with the way it is at the moment either. This isn't finished yet, so I can still easily make changes without too much work. I will try to figure out another solution with the current Pit/paddock location, and I will relocate to the west if I can't figure it out!

I'm glad you like the circuit.

The most obvious solution to the pit in, is to curl the wall around on itself, showing a rounded face (with tyres or barrier in front) to a "straight on" accident. It would push the pitlane up to the garages further away from the straight a little, but you could compensate for that by having more of a Shanghai style straight on entry into the
pits.

I think I've found a better solution. Obviously, tire barriers and protection will be added when I add my details. (I did have to reduce the pit/paddock area slightly)

Its great to see the forum more active recently. Heres a new one.

4.5km. Fast sweeping corners and long straights forcing teams to make a compromise between straight-line speed and downforce for the turns.

Optional chicane on the last turn.

Can you show a more detailed view of the pit entrance and exit roads please.

The entry looks to cut across a gravel trap, and the exit uses the tarmac run off?

I'd tuck both behind a wall on the outside to the gravel.

The pit entry actually follows the outside curve of the gravel trap for the last corner, but I decided to add a little extra around the outside of the pit entry in case someone overcooks it.

Same with the exit, it follows the outside of the runoff at the first kink. The gravel around the outside is only there in case of a tangle at the kink.
