Luiggi's dreams

So here's my 4 a month dossier

This one is for a buddy I meet recently, we flew over his terrain (with google earth) and I came up with a little something.it's a 3km club track, goes clockwise, the rest you can see.

End section will be real fun.

Again, nice amount of overtaking ops, but lots of fun to be had, too!

Trying to keep up with the "4 a month" promise....I'm a little behind already!

Here's "Sakuyoshi Park"

It's a 5.4 Kilometer CCW for the full course.
Club Course I haven't determined the lenght but it's around 3K, and runs CCW.
Short Course around 2.3K and runs CCW as well.
There's a VIP tower, ambulance access for all areas, a parking lot inside, two bridges(not that I like bridges, they're not cost effective.

EDIT:Still some gravel traps are needed, I missed them because I did this quite from the hip, one at T2, another one at last corner of Club Course! (my bad)

Main straight is 900M

This track was not designed to look good or organic, I rather started out thinking what I would like to ride, as viewed from behind the handlebar of a motorcycle or the steering wheel of a car, what kind of corners and directional changes, in what order etc. so I don't expect to set the world on fire as the art is concerned, but try to put yourself riding this track, see if you like it.

T1 super fast approach but can't get too carried away because the next section is a quite technical succession of corners with many directional changes.

After T5 you get a little breather, heading for an increasing radius T6 with a chance to accelerate thru T7 which is quite a high speed turn.

Next section is a quite difficult set of multi apex corners, very hard to pin the best line.

Next section is another breather, preparing for a set of corners that you need to connect correctly, for the best lap times, they are deceaving, and getting too deep into one may screw the rest of the section!

Last section is another multi apex and the last hairpin leading to the 900 mt straight.
That's a lap around my circuit.

I think we'd all love driving around that. I also like the concept of the alternate tracks and they way they are laid out.
It would be a brilliant test circuit too.

Buddy, I'm absolutley sure Luiggi would ceremoniously sacrifice his wife to get a few laps on this baby

Jokes aside, a huge effort, both thumbs up!

If it were run clockwise, holy Mother of God at the 8-9-10-11 complex. If it had any elevation change, it would be the most ridiculously hair raising corner I've ever seen.

now that I look again, I see I got a lot to improve in the ways I connect circuits, it seems I design a circuit and then after it's done I look for places to put jumpers, rather than design two circuits that meet somewhere, if I made a good one anytime, it was because of pure good luck!

From now on I will think a little longer when designing splittable circuits.

Here again, as always I'm behind schedule on the 4-a-month exercise and I'll post this time a hi end racing club, with villas for members and participants to stay and a nice dedicated hotel with a view to practically all the track, mind you, this hotel is for racing enthusiasts!! nobody ever would look up a room here looking for peace and silence!

The track itself it's very uncharacteristic of my geometric designs, this one I don't even recognize it I hope I haven't unconsciously copied one from anyone in my subconscious.

That's it:
It's 18 turns, CCW, 3.8Km, the rest you can see here.
lready know the pit exit is kind of tricky, I put it at 125 meters of the corner so that racers are already slowing down when joiners come in accelerating.I also think reversing direction would be interesting but I have to rearrange a little bit the traps.

Your quite correct in that's it doesn't have your usual signature. Yet at the same time it's still clearly thought out (as is your nature preference) as a bike circuit rather than for cars.

I don't think changing the direction would work on this one, as you currently have the corners flowing in a "tight-in open-out" fashion that doesn't really reverse as it messes with the braking and overtaking zones.

Again for Bikes, well other than rainy MotoGP, there isn't pitstops, and bikes exiting the pits in practice and qually are usually pretty slow away and are able to find a blend into the flow of riders already on circuit. As such it doesn't bother me to much on this one.

A nice bit of elevation behind the pits and bottom left corner (in plan view) would great, perhaps something quite steeply up hill through the twisty bit before coming back down the short straight into the final corner. Maybe even the final corner being slightly below paddock level with on exit a gentle climb on the main straight that crests level with the start of the pit wall.

Agreed, not like your usual stuff - but just as great.

Cannot help seeing a camel here, BTW

THank you, that's an interesting comment,hat would be a difference between a car circuit and a bike circuit?

I don't think changing the direction would work on this one, as you currently have the corners flowing in a "tight-in open-out" fashion that doesn't really reverse as it messes with the braking and overtaking zones.


Yes the corners would change from increasing radius to decreasing forcing more trail braking rather than stop and go, I always try to blend corner types.

A nice bit of elevation behind the pits and bottom left corner (in plan view) would great, perhaps something quite steeply up hill through the twisty bit before coming back down the short straight into the final corner. Maybe even the final corner being slightly below paddock level with on exit a gentle climb on the main straight that crests level with the start of the pit wall.

That is totally a good idea, I thought of elevation changes but I didnt had time for that, I will throw a terrain contour map later on.
