Mimicking a city environment, the South City track is distinguished by tight turns and Armco barriers, and is the most popular S1 track. It contains six road configurations, plus reverse. These tracks are good for both starting and seasoned racers.


South City Classic
Short: SO1
Length: 2.0 km / 1.2 miles

One of the most popular tracks in LFS S1. It is a short fast configuration in the streets of the south city. The characteristic feature of this track is the bus stop-shaped double chicane that is surrounded by walls in the middle part of the track. It is important and difficult to exit this one with as much speed as possible, because of the following back straight. After this a long beautiful left hander takes you to the starting straight.

Sprint Track 1

South City Sprint Track 1
Short: SO2
Length: 2.0 km / 1.2 miles

In spite of it's short length, this track has two long straights. Overtaking is really easy, this definitely a city track for great fights. Because this is a sprint track, you won't be able to pit in (for changing tyres or damage repair), so you'd better be careful.

Sprint Track 2

South City Sprint Track 2
Short: SO3
Length: 1.3 km / 0.8 miles

This is the shortest tarmac-track LFS has to offer. But despite it's length it has many tricky turns. Because of that you will not find many overtaking possibilities here. The main characteristic of this track is the long combination of turns after the start and the bumpy braking zone on front of the last corner. Keeping the balance there is quite difficult. Don't be confused by the pits, you can start from here, but you cannot do a pitstop. It's a Sprint Track, just like Sprint Track 1.

City Long

South City Long
Short: SO4
Length: 4.0 km / 2.5 miles

As the name indicates, this is the longest South City configuration you can drive in LFS. The first part is from Classic, the 2nd from Sprint Track 2 and the last from Sprint Track 1. If you are fast on this track, you are fast on any south city configuration.

Town Course

South City Town Course
Short: SO5
Length: 3.1 km / 1.9 miles

This track is pretty similar to SO Long. The only difference is in the last part, instead of turning right after the tight hairpin, you follow the straight to the long last Classic turn. Definitely a great addition. If you don't like Classics 'Bus Stop' but the rest of it, drive this one, but be prepared for the twisty Sprint Track 2-part.

Chicane Route

South City Chicane Route
Short: SO6
Length: 2.9 km / 1.8 miles

This track is SO City long, minus the SO Sprint 2 track. The normal direction goes the opposite way to the other SO tracks using the same start/finish line.
