I like that the layout of this latest one isn't as busy as a number of your earlier efforts.

Simplicity is by no means a bad thing.

track 35 is a fast anti-clockwise with 21 turns on the longest layout. T1-2-3 is very much inspired by the Senna chicane from Adelaide. scale is 1cm=25m, giving the front straight a length of 675m(27cm).

assistance required

I have continued work on my Tri-star Test Track concept on paper, but due to paper size, I have no real way to put all the points together. I may require someone on sketch up or Bob track builder the put more detail in. to say I struggle with details is putting it mildly.

I also have some debates about the track, one being whether or not I should put a bus stop chicane before the banked turn in point 1, I already have one after banked corner, before the tristar entrance.

My second debate is how I should run the track through the tristar itself, I will attach a quick sketch I did just now and I ask whether I should use the red line or the blue line between the points.


I also have some concerns for the descent on point 3, a part of me thinks its too steep and that another leg is needed

Why have the centre uniform, it can still be a star using several of those options. What sort of elevation changes would their be at the cross over points?

that is actually a fair point, why not have both? no elevation in the Tri-Star and point 1

track 36 is a 19 turn course with a few different layouts. heading is anti-clockwise. scale is 1cm=35m, giving the front straight to the first T1 a length of 525m(15cm)
inside pitlane would be used for main events using the long circuit T1 while the pitlane on the outside would be used for short circuit events

Interesting circuit, I reckon it can be used for most types of racing. You’ve got a good mixture there

track 37 is a tale of two very different halves, with the bottom half being quite busy with the top half being long straights with some braking zones to overtake on. scale is 1cm=40m, giving the front straight a length of 440m(11cm). heading is anti-clockwise.

also, either I have seen too many detective Pikachu trailers or does this layout look like a waving Pikachu with the top part as the ears, just noticed this as I type this

Thank you kerb for still keeping to post new designs rather regularly.
The first half of the lap of the counterclockwise Track 37 is quite different than what one would usually see: the beginning of the lap with the chicane/Esse as early as Turn 3 will create very tight racing after the start and everbody will be trying to squeeze through somewhere. The right-left-right at the beginning of (let's say Northbound) back straight feels also pretty unique. I like these details of the track. However, the circuit unfortunately becomes a stop-start fest on from entering the V-shaped section. If you'd ask me for suggestions on how to improve it, I'd recommend putting in larger radius corners at the tip of the V and at the end of the straight that comes immediately after that. But then, I've always tended to love 180 degree corners that are not hairpins. The beginning of the front straight also feels a bit too busy with yet another chicane near the pit entrance.
If you are going for that kind of vibe with your track, though, I'd recommend maybe drawing a city around it, or a "would-be city" like Yeongam.
Regards.

hey man, i'm just fighting on until someone with time and an arts degree can step in .
in terms of your opinion of track 37, I could make the bottom of the V a slingshot type corner, and keep the current hairpins at the tip. also when you say drawing a city around it, what exactly do you mean? my style of circuits tries to have parts where one can pass during the race, and others for gaining or losing time in qualy.

Well you've done a good job with that circuit. Plenty of places cars should be able to place. As for city around the circuit, I think he means to add to the landscape. Certainly your circuit is more interesting than most new circuits we've had in recent years
