I've got an idea...How about a national championship? If you want to, you can make a "championship" with gmap-pedometer, while following these four simple rules:
1. there must be between sixteen and twenty races
2. all races must be in the same country
3. the circuits must be street circuits or road circuits built on existing roads
4. the tracks must preferably be in the agglomeration of the top sixteen-twenty cities in that same country population-wise.
With this, here is (of course) the Belgian street championship (in this case, the communes with the highest population will be used), with 19 rounds!
1. Antwerp http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=4355985
, a quick circuit, slowed by some 90 degree-corners and a chicane in the old city.
2. Ghent http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=4356032
, a mostly fast and flowing circuit with some fiddly bits towards the end, in an uninspiring scenery, very much like Valencia.
3. Charleroi http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=4356049
, this one features a go around both sides of a roundabout, giving the track a bag-like shape in the city center.
4. Liege http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=4356070
, get ready to go flat out in narrow streets as well as wide boulevards lined with trees, as we run into the heart of Liege, taking a detour in front of my school in this 7km circuit crossing bridges four times!
5. Brussels http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=4358368
, a fairly slow circuit winding through Brussels' historic center, with a straight stretching over more than 1km in a track otherwise full of turns.
6. Bruges http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=4358396
, to each series its insanely impressive circuit (Liege), and to each series its insanely uninspiring circuit, this one. Quick turns followed by slow hairpins and 90 degree corners.
7. Schaerbeek http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=4359680
, a very fast circuit, punctuated by some chicanes. Probably the Monza of this championship.
8. Namur http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=4359756
, a nice break from all the relatively long circuits with a short blast in the city, with a nice long Interlagos-like flat-out section as well as a slow-but-flowing twisting section.
9. Anderlecht http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=4359764
, a track of three thirds: the first part is quite slow, with two hairpin turns, followed by a part with some right-angled corners, finished with a very quick section back to the start finish line.
10. Leuven http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=4359771
, it may be long, but the laptimes won't, as a whopping four straight kilometers will be taken flat out around the city's highway, with a difficult infield and a tricky chicane to start the main loop.
11. Mons http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=4395229
, an incredibly boring circuit despite some fairly quick sections. Overtaking should be possible with some big braking zones.
12. Molenbeek-Saint-Jean http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=4395243
, a fast circuit with some heavy braking zones. Perfect for overtaking.
13. Mechelen http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=4395244
, a quick but uneventful track (most of these are pretty much the same).
16. La Louviere
That's all for today, I'll be back with more tracks in the next few days.
