You misunderstand, I can see that you have the pit lane and garages, that I meant with paddock is the area usually immediately behind where the teams trucks park, where the support category work at the side of their transporters under an awning. This is where the medical centre and such like are located in the real world.

Modesto has the traditional version, MidAmerica a slightly different version, but Syracuse, Vero beach don't have any space. Copenhagen and Mediterraneo have space to add the paddock area.

Before visiting the various UK circuits and walking around the paddocks I completely underestimated the room required for all the competitors, shops, conveniences, medical center etc, it probably showed in my earlier designs. It's important to remember to leave plenty of space when initially sketching out the circuit to ensure that the paddock is not an afterthought.

another nice one, by the way.

Oh! That's what you mean. Yes, some of my tracks have them, but I need to start making them in the future.

Here's Copenhagen and Mediterraneano with paddocks:

These are all pretty amazing, but they should be downsized at least 15-20% in order to retain their drivability. Otherwise you'll just be flat out (or nearly flat out) around all of these courses.

For instance, the Buenos Aires track should be around 2.5 and the Zaragoza circuit around 2.9. Just my two cents..

Hate to pop in with criticism, but be a little more realistic with your runoff, T1 at Copenhagen has runoff where it shouldn't be and it's absent where it's needed. And T7(?) has way too little runoff.


But other than that, very good efforts from what I've seen.

I think part of the problem is that your gravel traps don't really reflect the shape of the corner. In my designs at the end of a straight I have the edge of the gravel continue in a line from the outer edge of the circuit, and allow for a brake failure, before shaping the back of the Gravel trap either 90 degrees or a curve to bring the gravel back to the tarmac again.
Likewise in twisty sections I always try to allow for a car going straight on as well as understeering off the outside of the corner.

Not sure I've phrased that correctly but take a look at some real world circuits, maybe European Grade 2 or Grade 3 circuits where they don't have tarmac run offs.
