Latest post of the previous page:

Thanks for that, I'm currently on the other side of the Med and 90 years back in time. You think it being part of France finding a large scale map of Oran in the 1930 would be easy, but no everything is focusing on the naval base at Mers el Kebir on the opposite side of the town to what I need. Not even the US Army can be relied on, apparently they invaded the place with copies of British maps.

Hi Michkov. When looking at 2003 Donington Park proposal, I saw your note about not finding any source for that proposal. But I knew I saw it somewhere, so I checked etracks again with Wayback machine and found article with photo about it. https://web.archive.org/web/20040712161 ... id017.html

I have more things to add:
Yas Marina original proposal (probably from 2007 I think)
Image
Korea International Circuit 2006 proposal
Image
There are also many proposals of Monte Carlo and Singapore on gdecarli.it
Also, not sure if someone sent you 2015 Monza proposal but you probably already saw that.

Took me a while but I finally found a decently scaled map of Oran that extends as far east as I needed. So here is the updated map of the Circuit Automobile d'Arcole used for the 1930 and 32 GP d'Oranie.

Also updated the Chino Airport circuit, which may or may not had a set of esses

4:00min. The first corner seems to be changed two times after Mark Donahue's crash. First a double apex corner and then a chicane.

Some nice onboards.

Hi, just wanted to say Sochi doesn't work now, probably after last update. This happens when I try to look at it.

I just found proposal from July 2013 for Interlagos (for season 2014). Only 2 corners are different, but there is new s/f straight with completely new pitlane and much bigger paddock.

Hello Michkov,

thanks for updating Azerbaijan section, never saw that proposal from 2014 before.

Just want to say the circuit (on which F1 is racing currently) had also its proposal, showed in October 2014. Not really different, but the 1st DRS straight wasn't supposed to be that long.

On the 1st picture, you can see s/f straight with different pit entry without chicane, which looks like pit entry on Indianapolis
2nd picture shows proposed layout
3rd picture is from racefans.net, where the layout also looks different, the straight is even shorter than the straight on picture 2

Updated Circuit d'Andorra of Trophee Andros fame, swapped out the whole Andorra section as well while I was at it.

Image

One thing I found is that the early Trophee Andros races 95-00 where apparently not held at this circuit despite what the internet says. Sadly I havn't found a good track map of it either.

Small problem I encountered with the latest version of Firefox on PC. For local files I'm loosing styling after clicking around on a page and reloading it afterwards. It seems to only affect locally saved files so the site shouldn't show it.

If somebody could try replicate this on their machine to see if this isn't my odd Firefox install at work. Here is what you do.


1) Unpack the archive
2) Navigate down to ./RCDB/Tracks/SWE
3) Open the .html file in Firefox
4) Press some of the links in the lines below the image
5) Reload the page
6) Take a screenshot if anything looks vastly different*
7) Report back


Thanks

*Image, table entries and number of buttons should change that is normal.

PS: Anyone familiar with Monza? I'd like to know if they still use the junior track connecting the front stretch to the exit of Ascari. If not when they stopped using it.

I know they run the Junior course for tracks days.

After some searching on the internet i found this:

Monza Track Days Information
There are a few options when looking for a driving experience or own bike or car track days in Italy. These are usually held at Monza. There are Ferrari driving experience that are held here and have use of the 1.5 mile junior course. If you would like to take your bike or car on a Monza track day then keep an eye on the track days calendar. There you will find dates for upcoming monza track days.

Brilliant, that broadcast isn't on youtube or anything is it?
