That's pretty interesting to see. A couple of pretty fast corners in that new planned section too.

Sorry to be Buzz Killington, but I would like to point out that the sub-heading for this forum reads "Use this forum to chat about Motorsport in general". Do we really need a thread called "Motorsport General Discussion" when that's what the whole forum section is for? :P

Silverstone proposed extension of Stowe in 2006 it never happened, they were also going to build a oval for a rally SSS and incorporate it into Stowe aswell.

So I guess this needs to be renamed to "circuit layouts never raced"? :P

I know it's gonna sound weird, but the old front wings (or at least the one on their) look awful to me compared with the new ones.

Today I went to a car show at my school and they had some real gems there! 

First of all they had Colin McRae's 2002 Ford Focus WRC rally car with the lovely Martini livery and stripes and it was awesome. The whole inside was carbon fibre and there were so many switches too, and the steering wheel was just a steering wheel, no buttons or anything.

Then they had Tom Ingram's current BTCC car and he was there with his engineers! Unfortunately Tom was talking to some other people but I had a chat to the engineers and they told me some various things about the car, but one thing I didn't know was that the car doesn't actually have a Toyota engine! They use some special engine which I'd never heard of before. Anyway, he opened up the bonnet for me and showed me it and it was pretty nice.

Then they had some various classic cars, such as an Aston Martin DB5, an old Mini race car, which is so low to the ground it is mad. It is so basic inside too, awesome. They also had a Lotus Esprit, a Porsche 911 RS, old VW campervans and Beetles, old US cruisers, cars from the 1930s, and a sweet BBQ to go with it too. Lovely day!

As this thread has had some track layout alterations, how about we make some of our own :p

I've made some very slight alterations to Abu Dhabi which I think would perhaps make the racing a bit more exciting, taking into account the sea and hotel of course :p

You can make some of your own by going to http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/ 

Just draw the route manually (straight lines) and double click where you want your next point to be. Then click 'Save Route' when you are done, and share publically, then get your link and post it here.

This seems like the right place to put this.

In the 2015, WTCC is going to race at Nurburgring Nordschleife

Only just spotted this thread. 

So
glad the above changes didn't happen as I can't imagine the alternate layout being anywhere near as good. The proposed circuit area on the right of this drawing is relatively flat, so it would be nowhere near as interesting as the current GP circuit!
