Where are you going to put the rioters? Only joking, plenty of other places online to discuss Bahrain's current issues.


It's a good looking track, I too would love to see a few laps on video. Enjoy your weekend with it.

I think its a great track, lots of interesting bends to make it a challenge to drive. However unless you are running magnets you really need to leave 1 clear straight at least beyond a bend before you have and XLC. Sometimes you only have 1.2 a straight. Unless going very slo you will drift and miss the sensor. Also depending who changed lanes last will determine if you cange lanes as the changer does not select straight if if it was not alredy stright if you miss the sensor. It does not look too bad a carve up to fix this issue. Still , try it and see and have fun.

Looking good - are they 2 foot squares in the background, to get an idea of area needed?

(If ever a category could be justified in using magnets, it has to be F1 cars).

Dont know about setting up on the rug, tip some bags of sand on the floor for that realistic setting.

Do you have a link to a pic of that layout?

I used the picture www.f1-live.com had for the track

I knew they changed the track but could not figure out which version F1 will run
