SKG's tracks

Hello everyone!

I've been looking through these forum posts for a while now and I thought I should post some of my efforts. I've not been doing this for very long so ive only got a couple of tracks to show.

This is the first one. It runs clockwise, and I cant exactly remember the length, about 3km I think. The track width is 12m, ideally I'd like this circuit to be slightly longer, a lesson learnt.

See what you think.

Welcome along.

A couple of obvious missing gravel traps and things but overall a very nice first effort.

If as you say you've learnt from doing that one, I look forward to the next one and many more.

Welcome. This is a good first effort with a good balance between speed and technical sections. I also like how after every long straight there is a good overtaking opportunity. There are a few concerns with run off particularly the 130R-esque T14, and it also seems a bit short at 3km/1.8mi it looks to me to be about 4km/2.5mi. However, this is still a strong first track and im looking forward to see more from you.

This is what I came up with. The last sector has had a facelift, with turn 12 smoothed, allowing for space for a concrete run off area. I also removed turn 14 as it seemed to dangerous. There is also a larger gravel trap down into the new turn 15.

Great track...



before you took out the fun parts!
There was enough room to add runoff, it made the track so much more varied.

Great job, thank you

Ok. The circuit has been returned to its original configuration, and Ive squeezed in the required runoffs at the 2 fast corners.

Great track. With 3km it is a bit short, making it very twisty. That would make it ideal for touringcars, Formula Ford etc.
On the safetyside, the exit of the last corner is pretty dangerous. If you go just a littlebit wide, you are going head-on into a wall.
I am really curious wheather you have thought about things like grandstands, a tunnel or bridge to give acces to the pit and more of that stuff.

Yeah, thats just how long it turned out to be after building it. I think 4km would suit this circuit. I'll give some more details a go, it will take a while tho.

Will upload another track soon =D

Updated with Grandstand, access tunnel and inner service roads.

I also included the original sketch of the track, so you can see how its developed.

Starting fresh

Starting on my old thread again!

This new, unnamed, unfinished track has 5 different configurations. However, it is not possible to run more than one config at one time. I have learned from this and I will give it more thought in future projects, but I wont be changing the layout of this track. It has two pitlanes. the 2nd smaller pitlane on the infield section has no buildings (at the moment) and tents or awnings would be set up for smaller races/events if needed.

6 (not 5!) configurations. The shortest configuration is run anticlockwise, all others are run clockwise.

The chicane on the back stretch is optional and can be used if needed/appropriate.

There's a slight "Tilkesque" feel to it that I like.
