Some alternative layouts.

That could be an interesting way to breathe new life into old tracks.

How do they flow backwards? Or is it sort of much of a muchness?

I only tried spa once in the lotus 49, and it was actually quite nice---bit less of a modern track and a bit more crazy (not least because the runoff areas are clearly in the wrong places---think of eau rouge). But I think it is a race case and might not work easy for "serious" races---think of the pit exit in a reverse spa... completely nuts.

Croft 2007 with working pitstops! This one's still the right way round, I just fixed the lack of pitstops and added more pit bays up to 39.

They are like entirely different tracks. I try to think of them as that. Sometimes they look strange with kerbs and runoffs in the wrong place but hey. I sometimes remove alot of the tyre bundles as they aren't serving a purpose. The biggest hurdle is some of the LODs as some obects that had short viewing cutoffs because they were only seen in the mirrors are now viewable head on.

Thomson Road with grid spots bumped up to 40.

I can add any number of pits to any track, much like OSRW has done.

That's good to know. Can you also add cones or even a white line to where the pit lane starts and the pit limiter comes on?

I have updated Gentrack1 Reversed with a Pit Lane speed limit line. Redownload from the link in the OP

Cones I haven't had a look at yet.

When you do that, are you modifying the base track or adding an extra layout, like the OSRW pit boxes?

I can do it both ways. Adding stuff can always be done by introducing a new model but to remove stuff I need to edit the original track.
