    Slightly off topic, but I find this strangely amusing and relevant to the BTB process.

    Having made quite a few fantasy circuits, I have just now realised they all share one trait.... they are all anti-clockwise. I understand is relatively uncommon in the real world (Interlagos, Instanbul Park, etc, being some notable anti's).

    I put this down to being left handed. I didn't design them that way consciously. .... Whenever I doodle a layout or sequence, it just alway ends ups going anticlockwise... Anyone else here left handed? Does this happen to you!?

    When I draw paths in Google Earth (usually following roads), they often end up being anti-clockwise even though I'm right handed.

    In the aiw dialogue, once you have appended the track and set the aiw lines up, click the next button down, 'Flip Direction' :)

    I draw almost all my tracks as anti-clockwise, but that is just because I think I prefer the flow of a left-hand first corner as opposed to a right-hand (although I guess you could also have a track run anti-clockwise with an opening right hander)
