The long Blackwood backstraight after the chicane

The Blackwood circuit has one road and one rallycross course (plus reversed directions), situated in England's countryside. Blackwood is known for its versatility, because it contains a bit of everything.

GP Track

Short: BL1
Length: 3.3 km / 2.1 miles

The Blackwood Circuit has been revamped thrice in the history of LFS - once at the start of S2, once for patch Y and once again for version 0.6R. The S2 version added a better pit lane and removed some rather large bumps, and Patch Y made more improvements to the facilities and tightening the chicane. Version 0.6R revamped the whole Blackwood environment. Although the characteristic tight chicane of the original turned into a long wide one, it's still Blackwood. Besides this chicane, the tight hairpin (first turn), the long straight and the esses in the back of the track are defining the look and feel of Blackwood.

Short: BL3
Length: 1.8 km / 1.2 miles

This track is very wide and is ideal for rallycross races, with cars lining up three abreast on the starting grid. It has plenty of overtaking spots. The difficult parts of this track are the small hills and bumps in the mud-sections - watch your suspension and clutch. Keeping the car stable is your main task. 50% tarmac, 50% mud.
