Ok this one goes to AoB. Nice flow to the track and it somewhat resembles the original. Szisz, I couldn't wrap my head around how to make that bridge work. It's a cool idea, but I think it's too tight for the elevation change.

I didn't have time this week to even have a good look at this one.

Onwards with the next, I should have time over the weekend.

After much indecisiveness, the next challenge shall be:

The Cape Town ePrix

typical ~2-3.5 km Formula E circuit length

As per normal, no purpose built sections for FE, but the airport or city streets are fair game (or maybe even the docks, doubt there's room)

Mind the length of straights, track width, etc.

Try to avoid dodgy areas and residential areas, but not obligatory.

Cape Town Castle of Good Hope ePrix circuit at 3.0km. Ignore the distance markers...I've decide the S/F line should be along Newmarket St on the north side of the castle..somewhere around the 1km marker. This is a pretty wide boulevard and should also provide plenty of space for the pits.

This was a surprisingly difficult challenge, and it took me a long time to come up with anything.

First I tried this one, but at just over four kilometres, its a bit long for Formula E, and even they might find it just a little too twisty.

Then I tried this one, but ruled it out on the grounds that encircling the hospital with a race circuit wouldn't be very bright.

Then I tried this one, which would be a visually stunning circuit, but the roads are barely wide enough for two cars to go next to each other, let alone to overtake at 150 mph.

Eventually, I settled on this one, the Seapoint Street Circuit, which makes the most of stunning sea views and a very handy bit of pit lane-shaped road.

I'd like to put something around the Green Hill stadium complex, the big plazas are narrowed by bollards down to 2 cars wide which is too narrow. To use the roads themselves would eat up the distance in no time.

Bollards are typically pretty easy to remove, with the right equipment. I would say go ahead and design something cool all over those plazas and parking lots. Plenty of pavement around (and inside!) that stadium...go for it. Just watch out for the trees. Those aren't typically as easy to put back in the ground.

GO ahead and pick a winner...work has got in the way of track design these last few weeks and probably the next few as well

been a rather busy week for me, apologies.

Both tracks had a straight that would put FE cars into their limiters, but...

rubaru: Excepting for the missing chicane to the 800m straight, the only issues are a small bottleneck on Chapel into Keizersgracht and the corners on Castle are somewhat weird.

Szisz: While I like the idea (Punta much), the necessary chicane on the long straight would be tighter, but more importantly, the penultimate corner would be a substantially threat of spinning and the road there is barely as wide as the Spark is long. Also, the pit-out is a shonky thing indeed.

Winner is rubaru

Apologies all - Not sure if the news was only local, or if the whole world heard about it, but my region (Mid-Atlantic USA), was hit by a rather large snow storm this weekend. All my efforts went into digging out so I could drive to work today! I'll check back in a couple hours to post a good and unique challenge.

Alright let's change it up a bit. This is not a street circuit. I want to see a completely purpose-built facility on this unused land on the outskirts of Havana, Cuba.

http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=6767284

You own this land, so existing buildings and roads inside this boundary can be destroyed or retained at your discretion.

Your criteria are:
1) Have fun and go a little nuts.
2) Circuit shall be over 5.5km in length and somewhere around 16-20 turns.
3) If you can, show me a pit lane / paddock. Otherwise, define it in your text.
4) Do NOT give me a Tilke-drome. Think Suzuka, Monza, Spa, Silverstone, Montreal for your inspiration.

Deadline will be Thursday Noon EST (1700 GMT?)

I think the pit area is rather obvious. Also, this area is a landfill. Do note the elevation changes, not major but apparently we have a Bahrain bump in T16.


[Won't be back until Thursday or Friday (time zones are annoying me)]
