F1 Testing

Hey folks, well the season is drawing closer, and the excitement is building. Kubica has had a serious accident whilst rallying, but as a circuit designer, what do I think? Well, to be honest, armco / guardrail has always scared me. Armco is the cheap option but as a designer I always try to present the driver with a radius, rather than a blunt end hidden by tyres, but I would prefer concrete, however, this is expensive..... what can be done? I'll have a think and put my ideas forward.

By the way I have some great ideas about F1 and overtaking! I've got it sussed from a circuit design point of view!!!!

Well it's been a while but here are some more up to date images of Silverstone. As you can see the new Pit Building is coming along very nicely and is on target for handover on 6th May.

In the meantime here are a few more images including one taken from the roof. I'm sure you'll agree the views are spectacular and it looks like FOM will use this for the Grand Prix.
