As I was doodling around today, I came up with 3 quarters of a 2000s-style Grand Prix circuit layout (and in a way, it's a ginger
). But there is still a gaping hole in it. Now I'd like to ask you, fellow mytrackers, to please finish it.
The track runs clockwise. It's got the pitlane and paddock on the outside, which is fairly uncommon for circuits of the 2000s era. I haven't thought much about elevation changes yet, besides that the missing passage is meant to run moderately uphill. The length of the track can be estimated from the length of the pitlane (say, 700 meters), so the overall length of the finished track is likely to be longer than 6.5 kilometers.
The right-hander Turn 1 is a multi-apex corner, through which several different lines are possible. For a gearshift with 7 gears, it's probably to be taken in 4th at the beginning and 3rd at its end. The left-hander Turn 2 that follows suit is then used to accelerate out onto the next straight, which ends turning right into Turn 3, which has a smaller radius than Turn 2, but less angle to go round, so it should be faster.
It's important to get clean through Turn 3, because there is a highspeed passage to follow. The first part of that is the straight leading up to the Esses. The first of the two Esses was modelled on the Becketts-Maggots combination from Silverstone. But instead of Chapel, there follows the 2nd of the Esses, which are to be taken full throttle, because they have much larger radii. And the 3rd part of the passage is the backstraight that leads up to the hairpin on the bottom right side of the diagram.
Then, where the hole is, there is most likely an uphill passage which ends at a 3rd gear left-hander, at the apex of which there is the highest point of the circuit. Next, the track descends again towards the pits, beginning with a straight that fades into that long and fast multi-apex corner at the center of the track diagram, which ends at the back of the paddock in a right-left chicane through which fits only one car in 3rd gear (for 2 cars it's considerably slower). And after that, the track tightens towards the left with the final corner, which has its slowest point at its exit (2nd gear). And then, the start-finish line isn't far away anymore.
