    A fantasy track with 5 layouts. This is the full GP-circuit.

    It also has a:
    • National circuit
    • Club circuit
    • GP-short circuit
    • Intermediate circuit

    Thanks! I am very pleased with the layout.
     
  4. looks nice, but is there any reason the walls have to be so close to the track everywhere, it has a armco canyon feel to it.

    yep. because it is a WIP track.
     
  6. Cool look'n layout,I look forward to having a crack at it.
    But why HZ? Is it based on a real track of that name or have you heard of the
    awesome '79model(HZ)Holden over there? Hahaha!
    Nah,just joking but very nice work though!

    HZ stands for Hunze. I just needed a name for the track. Basicly the track is finished. I want to spice up the terrain a bit and i need a sollution for the "Eau Rouge" corner. All the cars take off after this corner. Maybe i will change the layout a bit before this corner.

    How do you mean take off?
     
  9. That really does look very, very good.

    Just a small thing (and this bugs me about a lot of BTB tracks, plus I understand it is WIP) - IMO the BTB grass and gravel textures are awful - that is one thing I would definitely change if I was making it.

    But I'm not, and apart from that I love it - even the enclosed armco - gives more sense of speed - the track already seems to have great character.

    When they go over the crest, as seen at 44 sec in the video, they liff off because the cars are getting light, when driving the National Circuit layout.

    yep. and i have a few other non-completed tracks.
    An oldie which also has a tread: Hunzering.
    Then i have a Interlagos/Buenos Aires alike track, which contains a very fast outer circuit and 2 road course inner tracks.
    Also the Assen 1954 project is on the line. (10 mile old track through Assen, Hooghalen and Laaghalerveen).
    An other project in my own towns vicinity, the Westerwolde circuit project. But i haven't found the right layout yet.
    In Stadskanaal, my home town there was also a street circuit which i can see when i look out my window!
    Then i have a kart track..... the Aviadome-track which combines a real kart track with a motocross track layout and an oval. Very nice track.
    Yeah i am dedicated.
     
  16. Oy, Erwin, for some real non-fantasy stuff you may want to take a look at www.wegcircuits.nl/photos.html

    There were some really nice ones back then, now waiting to be revived...!

    How can i make a package of this? I know that it is possible. Brianza (Monza) and Silverstone 89-91 is an example of this.
