I'll throw this on in the mix as well.

Didn't read the instructions properly, they'll have to do a lap and have the grid on the pit straight

neither did I, I thought the line on the canvas was the starting line ... I'm not having problems since I put a straight right after but that's was pure luck.

Here's a quick one. Kept it simple as I'm not a fan of the typical kart track layouts where the circuit is constantly folding back on itself to make as long a track as possible

Thsi one is one of those fold back use all the space ideas. A few good straights and a slow corner onto the pit straight for safety reasons.

Here's a couple, MS Paint specials. The second design does waste a little bit of space but has a more unique layout than some (the exact dimensions might need fudging also, I didn't have a gauge for 6m wide at the angles)

These are a mixture of faster sweepting sections initially and closed corners looping back on each other. Essentially, you get closer racing on simpler circuits, so I would try to avoid over complex tracks, especially for hire tracks.

Errr... there's something i don't seem to understand... The "tender" says: "... the drivers can exit the pits onto the grid" All your designs have the pit exit AFTER the grid - which is hardly a wonder, since both the start line and the pit exit have been included "by default". So, the designs simply cannot meet this requirement.

What did i manage to misunderstand?

Well, we're kind of painted into a corner here (no pun intended). Either 1 of 2 things has to happen:
- The first piece of track after the first corner (assumed to be bottom left) has to be a straight
- The pit lane has to run counter the track direction, with the entrance in the bottom left and exit in the bottom right (I've seen this before, but not very often)

I was a little perplexed by this requirement also, but I tried to meet it using the first option.
