I was thinking of building a replica San Marino in my garage but not sure how much space id need-i found the circuit lay out on the net should be ok to do it.
I remember San Marino from the video games as one of the "easier "circuits to race on !!
I take it you mean Imola circuit, which has had several different amendments to the original, firstly chicanes, then more chicanes after the Senna tragedy, then more recently after it had lost F1 the start area and pits were revamped.
San Marino (IMOLA) is a great circuit on the computer to race on. Would need some careful design to make it good for slot cars me thinks. Don't forget to include the rises and falls of the landscape!
Good luck with your idea however.
I did dabble around a while back and made some of the modern tracks into slot car circuits using design software, but got carried away and did them at a very large size. This one would need a Sports Hall
Hi, welcome to the forum. I watched the 6hr race from Imola yesterday - some great action but I'm not sure this'd make a great slot track, seems to me like there are too many chicanes & a lack of flowing sections. I've always thought a Suzuka inspired track would be great for slot racing - might be worth checking it out?
I agree with Stuart, the circuit at Imola isnt to bad, but the corners just dont seem to flow. The Pirratela at the top of the hill, which then sweeps down into Aqua Minerale isnt to bad, the then leads into the painfull slow Variante Alta. At least they have removed the final chicaine to help the flow. Maybe take a look at doing it as it was in the early '80s?
It lost it's character for me after '94
Good luck with the project, cant wait to see this!
