Latest post of the previous page:

Now I see it, that's obviously a Sandown class circuit.

As for what they host, minor club races, China is motorsport wise at the same point where America and the UK where in the 1950s. People have money and cars and want to race them, just non of the air bases. There is one track in there that was build and demolished with in 2 or 3 years, so not all of them seem to work out.

A track blipping in and out of existence in China is actually quite common, The Shanghai Expo Circuit, Shenzen Circuit, and Beijing Hi Valley Automobile Park / Pinggu Higu Circuit, are all now inactive after less than 5 years of operation, Shenzhen didn't even really get a single year to its name. Also, Literally Every Chinese Street Circuit shares this fate. the Beijing Olympic Rowing Centre Street Circuit barely existed for a year, Yancheng to my knowledge, only hosted one race, and the old A1GP Track is nonexistent these days.

It's kind of sad too because China has an insanely diverse array of circuits.

I think I fixed the front page, took me way to long to realise there are two files of the same name on the server. One htm the other html, I've been working on the html the whole time. :blush:

Also added the new Indy track in Nashville. Terrible north south orientation with that one.

Just a kart track today, PF International

Plus the first version of the upgraded national track lists. I still needs some work on the styling and some icons here and there but functionally it's there, just ignore the duplicate ROC lines they are just for demonstration of the scrolling behaviour.

Question regarding the flag location, left or right of the countries name, I'm 60/40 towards right myself.

Looks fine.

PF Intl. was one circuit I always wished I had driven when I was karting. Never went there though.

Updated Dundrod. Apart from minor alteration of the roads it should all layout changes should be there.

An airborne addition this time

Not quite sure if I like the blue of the sea instead of white for the background colour.

Updated Goodwood, both the FoS and Circuit. Mostly a complete set, I'm missing the 1936 hillclimb layout and the 2005 Rally stage. I figure it's more likely that if someone can get a hold of a 2005 FoS program there should be a map in there. For 36 I'm not holding out any hopes, even Motorsport has only a paragraph on that event.

Also found this wonderful clip while researching

Hi there. I found by Wayback on some old page related to motorsport circuits proposal of Barcelona (from May 2003 probably), which I didn't see anywhere else, even on gdecarli. It introduces chicane for Europcar corner (not the one which we have from 2007).

Updated Del Mar Fairground venues. If someone has information about the SCCA races in the 1960s, there are some open questions I have.

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.
