I've returned for a brief respite in Layoutting this year. This might be my one and only layout this time; I am indeed busy with other projects around Adobe, Sketchup, 3Ds, aaand you get the point!
Thank you everyone for your support for this series!
This is a track I've always wanted to redo, having done a smaller version on Autocross.
Chosen location is Aston - the backdrop and scenery very much suits the environment of the actual track!
DTM does some crazy races here, and Norisring is steeped in history as one heck of a small rocket circuit. Blitz around the track in the GTRs for that authentic DTM feeling, or take something like the FBM and relive the European FBM Series.
The track is accurately scanned and outlined before put up in LFS. It is correctly scaled, and all environment objects like buildings, grandstands and cranes are exact to real life, giving a great visual display as well as depth, which most object-type layouts lack! Heck, have fun burning some tires!
Below you can find the file for original Norisring layout along with Updated v1 version with "gravel trap" (as seen in bottom post).

Norisring Small Update 1 (V3)
Small update to Norisring layout, with full pit lane with pit boxes, along with a podium.
my setup wasnt really good for this as i based it quick on an as1 set and set cambers to -2.5, 10% diff made the slides easy to adjust with throttle so i started doing a few runs with using TC only at the start. I had a funny walltap into the container on my lap which helped the car out of that corner really neatly
Its possible to go faster but you need good coordination and timing to get some leverage from the kerbs in the corners and there's a 50% chance you spin or get stuck in the kerb That's an impressive time, though
Seems the fastest, Pete! Maybe after hours of tweaking you can go faster.
Anyway, to everyone still subscribed to this fancy pancy layout thread,
Thank you for your continuous support. It really honestly means a lot to see people enjoying my work and it's rewarding even though there isn't much league usage (yet). Gives me the drive to continue thinking and crafting each track with joy and I hope I can continue to do so!
Every track from start to current has had a facelift and/or grid expansion. All of these updated race-spec courses have been uploaded with "V3" in the name. Do have a look!
Personal Favourites? I'll have to say Monaco, Norisring, Mid-Town Ring.
And of course, the Lmaoring - named for the fun we had with our late racer in LCS-R, Marcus, who sadly passed on last year. In his honor, the updated inner stadium section now features the finalised Marcus Arena structure.
Ninja Warrior Intermediate Course 1, BL1 LIVE FOR SPEED
NOTE : Course aesthetics have improved since above video. Return stage routes have been widened, and stages color coded..
Ever wanted to test your precision driving and patience? Wait no further!
I bring to you a two-part Ninja Warrior/banzuke influenced obstacle course, dug up from the archives of 2016! Few have conquered this course and fewer have done it in a fast time. Will you be the king of the course?
First ever competitive small-scale obstacle course I've made that will take more patience than most others! Carefully constructed to be neat, whilst being fully doable and isn't made of all-armco that will wreck your FFB wheel.
Put your slow precision driving skill to the test in this 4 stage course with your friends or simply take a spin and attempt to finish the run in quickest time possible. Upload your attempts if you wish! Recommended vehicle is XRG.
Each stage has a "return-to-stage route" to the stage start just like the real Ninja stages. You do not have to restart the entire course if you fall off once.
Have fun, and be sure to stay... calm!
