It's complicated.
Good idea, and I like the layout of the track. But that airfield looks like it might be used a bit more often than the one that TG films at. ;)

Haha, yeah, the airport is still in operation. But whenever I fly out from it I always think how much fun it would be to get a free hit on all that tarmac.

Some of the corner names are frineds' nicknames, others are taken from the local area, the rest are pretty self-explanatory.

It takes a bit of effort, but it's pretty easy really and a bit of a laugh.

:driving:

Haha, must be in a region cause the map isn't high-res

BTW Even our "International" Jean-Lesage Airport is a POS, it's quite old, small and there's barely no flights..

My gf's father works there in the control tower, I always thought everything was controlled from Montreal these days but apparently it isn't..

alright, here's my take, again not much to do with so little..

sorry bout the size, and I can't be arsed to name the corners.

would have done it at Teeside as there's a lot more fun to be had there, but I can't get good enough arial views

I had several thousand layouts to choose from. This one is 9.4 miles long with a 1.75 mile straight. I tried to mix high speed straights with lots of corners.

Had a bicycle once.
We got to get the AMG/M/S cars up to pace somehow. ;)

On a sidenote. I just checked back with google earth and they updated the satelite images for Hamburg.
All you low ressers should check if they did the same for your region.
