My Tracks

This is something I have been wanting to do for a long time now.

I spend a lot of my spare time designing race track layouts. I have done hundreds in the past, and now I would like to share them with my friends on this forum.

Each week I will add a new one to the thread. Please feel free to comment on the layouts, or even add your own to the thread.

Here is the first one - Observation Park.

The 1st turn is a tight right-hand hairpin (a good passing place. Turn 2 is a similar hairpin, but a left-hander. This flows into turn 3 - an opening right-hander. The entry to turn 3 also begins an uphill climb. You reach a crest just before the braking zone for the turn 4 chicane, where the track flattens out.

Then is the flat-out run down the back stretch. The track runs slightly downhill until the slight left bend, where it flattens out again.

Turn 5 is another tight, right-hand hairpin, good for overtaking. Next is the uphill left-right turn 6 & 7.

Between turn 7 & 8 is a crest where you start going downhill. Turn 8 is a fast right-hander. As is turn 9. Turn 9 also has a dip on the apex. Immediately after 9 is the fast and slightly downhill left-hand turn 10.

The track flattens out just after 10 in preparation for the flat turn 11 chicane. The exit of this chicane leads into the uphill run through turns 12 (a slowish left) & 13 (a fastish left).

The track continues to run uphill through the 90 degree right-hand turn 14.

The track begins to go slightly downhill just after 14. It continues downhill through the high speed (left-right) turn 15 chicane. Just after the chicane is long right-hander where the track flattens out mid-turn. The final turn (17) is merely a flat-out left kink onto the main straight.

The yellow bits are obviously the kitty litter.

The red bits are the stands.

And the grey bit is the paddock.

Reminds me of Imola in a way...

...I've actually designed a few tracks as well, might scan them in some time.

You should do a circuit made up of some of the fastest/best corners, I'd be interested to see how that would be like. (And I'm not talking ovals here!)

I noticed the American 'Racer' magazine did an article (or perhaps a series?) on just this idea. I can't recall which corners they used, as I was shamelessly reading the magazine in Border's Books.

I've seen that sort of thing done numerous times before, I even remember someone made a 'best of' F1 track for GP2, it was good fun to drive on, but nowadays, most of the old corners have been slaughtered or chicance, so it was hardly a brilliant track.

I remember reading an article where Coulthard and someone else (maybe Hakkinen) chose their fav corners to make a track. Can't remember where I saw it.

mac: Thats would make a good CART/ALMS track, seems nice and exciting.

Great topic mac! That looks like quite a unique and challenging track. 2 questions:

a) What's it's length?
&
b)What did you use to create it?

a) I haven't worked out an exact length (maybe I should) but I think it'll be about 4.5 kms - similar length to Barcelona.

b) I used the most technologically advanced methods possible! I merely drew the circuit, filled it in with black texta, and scanned it. The one with the track details was just done on Microsoft Paint.

Pete, you're right, that was the bit like the Variante Alta chicane at Imola. The chicane's a bit slower though.
