I often find myself sketching circuits during boring lectures...

Does anyone have any circuits they've designed and can share?

These could be ones sketched or maybe road circuits drawn on google maps!

(Will share mine when I get my scanner up and running)

Cheers

During lessons, I usually draw F1 cars, but sometimes I think of some circuits. Don't have any examples on paper now though.
The latest project was eerily similar to old Osterreichring, while others were simple street circuits, perhaps similar to Phoenix.

I just make my tracks up on the spot, but i usually take inspiration from existing tracks

Think this is my favourite. Some great sweeping corners and overtaking spots!

I've not sketched a track since leaving college, but whilst driving along I often think certain road layouts would be fantastic for parts of a GP circuit. When I have some free time I'll draft up a circuit using some of the road layouts I think would be great on a track.

My school notebooks from the past four years are covered in circuits! I'm so glad I'm not the only one that does this! I don't think I have any that I feel like sharing. So many lectures have passed more quickly as I try to find the ideal racing line!

Nostalgia alert.

You would probably need to be 30 or above but anyone remember a game called 'grand prix construction set' for the bbc micro. We are talking mid to late 80s here. Anyway, one feature was that you could build your own tracks. A bit like scalextric on the computer. And like scalextric you could never get the last piece to fit together properly so there was usually a kink in the track, or you had to go back and put a different radius curve in somewhere. I loved that game.

If I knew how to show the maps on here, I would. There are some really nice roads in the Santa Monica Mountains and Hollywood Hills that would make for Nurburgring-like circuits.

I do that very often and my favourite is a modification of the old Hockenheim circuit with the cars going the opposite (anti-clockwise) way, an uniterrupted long straight and additional fast curves and a chicane elsewhere.

I am not sure how to scan and post it here and so I did a Flickr link.

Nice, except that there are no run-off areas. Plenty of "fall-off" areas instead and I guess that they should do.
