Oh, I'm not saying he can't. Just pointing out that if he doesn't, there is a version similar to this style that already exists.

Thank you david for your comment (I'm sorry for having replied just now).:)

I was racing an ideal championship with my GR 70 Tour's tracks (5 km,1 or 2 pit stops per race and a lot of fun) and I decided to add 2 more rounds at this series. :scratch:
Here they are: La Condamine: a street circuit inspired by Circuit de Monaco.
Wiltshire: a fast circuit inspired by Castle Combe Circuit in England.
Expect other tracks like these in the near future.;)
I hope you like it, enjoy and please leave a comment! :bg:

Two more fantastic tracks Dragon, so simple but effective and both were easily recognisable from your inspiration.

(I'm not a big fan of british racetracks but...) Wiltshire is now one of my favorite tracks from all times, and the fast sweeps after the hairpin in A115 are not bad either!

And I feel like LaCondamine should now be my natural replacement for funny races in a monaco-like track. Bye Mondega, thanks for the decade of racing!

Well, someone sugested before F1 tracks and, because of reasons, I'd really like to see a take on Interlagos (I'm not sure how would you work out HMap, and not to repeat with Mini F1, do a take on a single turn or sector of the track?), or non-F1 tracks like Brands Hatch Indy or Le Mans (if you are not committing to do F1 tracks).

Interlagos is a pretty good shout, ~7 turns, big hmap, would be good!

Watkins Glen, Montreal, and Laguna Seca would be some suggestions from me :D

Oh, Glen and Laguna, those are nice aswell.

And I forgot to mention, I just think that Nordschleife version in WS 70 is just poetry. The most complex of the tracks, well pictured in a banked oval. The paradox and the fidelity of it is pure beauty.

I really would want to see this tracks above. Also Spa would be nice ;)
But the 70's was also the era of British racing, so I think more UK tracks would be nice tribute ;)

70's is time of Anderstorp, Kyalami, A1, Hocke, Monza, Zandvoort, SPA, maybe Zolder. For me it will be the best. ;)

A1 was Österrreich in 70's ;) Also Autodromo Hermanos Rodrigez was important and track where was Argentinian F1 GP ;)

Interlagos, Brands Hatch Indy and Le Mans are some of the tracks that I would like to do but also Nordschleife is a great challenge. Great idea, thank you. :goodvibes:

They're fine. Montreal is my choice for a hypothetical canadian's round of this series, as regards Watkins Glen, I was thinking about Nascar's layout and about Laguna Seca, I think the ideal solution is pre 1988's layout.

Maybe there was a misunderstanding, "70" (in this project) only represents the world size that I use for these tracks and not a certain historical period. ;) You can recommend every type of track (cir, stc, ral, roa, ovl) and from every era as long as it's achievable with WS 70.:bg:

Ummm... What doesn't mean you can't make some more British tracks :P
I'd really want download some big number (about 20) of "WS 70" tracks and make some championschips with bots (or my brother if he would want to)

Don't worry, I'll make some more british tracks because in UK there are many examples of beautiful circuits that I'd like to recreate.:bsmile:

What about a weird version of Grobnik? It will be tricky but I also think it will be interesting.
and as a Croat it would be nice to see it

IMO, it's hardly Interlagos without some hairpins in the middle... do you have room for at least one?
I like short, simple signatures!

Wondering if Dragon is still alive with the projects.
(And despite I like the hairpins, I really approve the layout, it remains of what you see on Sector A when in stands.)

Thank you for your comment cocney. :bg: It could be a good idea, I'll definitely try to make it. ;)

It's quite hard to find enough room for hairpins, at least in my thoughts. :shrug:
DownloadCars wrote:Wondering if Dragon is still alive with the projects.
I'm alive with this project, I only didn't have much time for trackmaking in these weeks but there are good news...

...here are two new rounds of GR 70 Tour: Gold Coast and Tonremal. :rocks:
Gold Coast: a street circuit with a tricky chicane inspired by Surfers Paradise Street Circuit in Australia (there is also a version without chicane).
Tonremal: a fast circuit inspired by Circuit Gilles Villeneuve in Canada.
I hope you like it, enjoy and please leave a comment! :bg:

I think Gold Coast is better than Tonremal. It has more feeling from the original track. Also you could make at least one more chicane or return at Tonremal - but it's only my opinion and still those tracks are fantastic ;)

Yeah, Tonremal doesn't make me think of Montreal. It's still a nice track, though. I need to update my collection and get some of your more recent tracks :(
