Keep them coming, Oscar...

This one shows that they got pretty close at that dodgy little kink. But not as close as competitors at Woody Point in 1936.

A long time ago we had a thread about that circuit...

Someone was going to make it happen again, as I recall.

Beautiful, as always.

You may be interested to know this track is in use again. Since 2011 a Leopolis Grand Prix, event for historic cars is run on the same track.

Including the missing transition curves?

I don't remember...

If you can work the 'search' feature here you can read it.

In fact quite a number of threads on the subject already:

And this page of Peter Morley is also still online

(to use the search function, just right click on the "advanced search" button at the very right of the 'search' panel, then open in new tab or window. This opens the 'search form' where you can enter the words you are looking for in 'find words'. As unfortunately the forum has been deivided into three parts ("The Nostalgia Forum", "Historical Research" and "TNF´s Archive" - this is also the reason why the "normal search function is almost useless) you have to select all three of them (or whatever else you want to include) in the "Find in forum" list. To me the options "Match - Search title and content" and "Display - As a topic list" work the best. When you click on a certain entry in the result list then it will directly link to the last post in the thread where the keywords ar mentioned.

Yes, with a taxi-way in the place of the Melling Road.

Reno- Stead Air Force base purchased by Bill Lear in the late 60’s as hq for his Indy Steam car program. Part of this was plans to create a duplicate of the Speedway to test his cars. Never got past the earth moving- grading stage. BUT- the track is STILL visible on google maps today. Look just to the left of the north end of the diagonal runway shown in ozpata’s map.

What a difference it makes to have that water showing to the left!

While I instantly recognised the shape of the circuit, it took on a whole different outlook with the sea there. Also the village.
