Track details


Planet Blackwood by KiDCoDEa and DoN

This environment 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

The owners of the Blackwood Track have spend lots of money to turn the club-style track of LFS S1 into a professional Grand Prix-Track. 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.


This track is very wide and is ideal for rallycross races. It has plenty of overtaking spots. The difficulty of this track are the small hills and bumps in the mud-sections. Keeping the car stable is your main task. 50% tarmac, 50% mud.

Car Park

A big parking lot. A good location to create your own autocross track or learn parking.

South City

Planet Southcity by KiDCoDEa and DoN

There are many configurations to be found here - from short tracks to long, through a town situated in England. These tracks are good for both starting and seasoned racers.


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 backstraight. After this a long beautiful left hander takes you to the starting straight.

Sprint Track 1

This track has in spite of its length two long straights. Overtaking is really easy, this definately 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 better be careful.

Sprint Track 2

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 quiet 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

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

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. Definately 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.

Fern Bay

Planet Fernbay by KiDCoDEa and DoN

This environment situated in the sunny outlands of Jamaica contains a wide variety of courses with several road tracks and two rallycross courses.


A short course, well suited to the smaller cars.


This track is famous for it's very fast first chicane. There are a lot good spots to overtake.


The railroad bridge with the previous very fast double right is the thing you will remember first of this track. You will find wonderful combinations here and some hills. As this track has only 3 straights, you will have to time your attacks wisely.


Longest track of S1. This track inherits Gold and Green. Because it's very narrow with only 1 long straight and lots of turns, this one is maybe the most difficult track in LFS.


This rallycross track consists of 70% Tarmac and 30% sand/mud. Most of the track is very twisted and narrow. The starting straight on the other hand is very wide and long. This is the only real overtaking spot on this circuit. The straight, the tight hairpin and the big jump (you have way more speed here than in the "RallyX Green" configuration) in the back are the main characteristics of this track.

Rallyx Green

A very short rallycross track. 60% Tarmac, 40% mud/sand. Overtaking is very difficult on this track, because there is only one short straight and there are a lot of bends. A good start is very important here. The only possibilities to overtake are in front of turn 1 and in the long right turn at the end of the mud/sand-part.


This area does not contain closed circuits. Instead, setup testing and free racing on the autocross area or skid pad and drags can be done here. This is a good place to use the autocross-editor, enabling you to create your own courses on the big open spaces here.


This is the second area exclusively designed for autocross layouts. It is shaped like a very bold "L".

Skid Pad

You want to test the grip of your car? Is your setup perfect for cornering? The Skid Pad is the place the test this. Nothing more to do here though.

8 lane drag

Consists of a 1/4 mile (402 m) long straight,where 8 players can have a dragrace.Sounds simple,but needs a lot of skills and techniques.

Drag Strip

Same as 8-lane-drag,but for 2 players only. Senceless.

Kyoto Ring

In this Japanese environment, the atmosphere is set by the tri-oval - the 'ring', which links together all configurations. The configurations vary a lot - both slow and fast racing is good fun here.


A high-banked tri-oval, the fastest track in LFS. The third and final turn is the slowest, having the least banking. The starting line straight has a slight bend in it that can cause a crash if you aren't paying attention. Drafting, fuel, and tire strategies all play a major role on this track.


Part of the track is on the oval, which basically counts as a long wide straight, but the rest of the track is quite narrow and twisty.

GP Long

Planet Westhill by KiDCoDEa and DoN


The 5,2 km track, situated in a farming area in West-England, provides fast and wide turns, spiced up with two interesting chicanes and the widest and most beautiful finish-straight in S2 with a "no look" turn 1. Most parts of the track are very fast. The undulating track is definately made for the faster cars.


The Aston Racetrack in the middle of England has several longer and shorter configurations within a nice countryside full of forest and light hills. The 5 configurations include the longest in S2 with 8.8 kilometers. Fast and slow turns, some altitude changes and a great chicane are the ingredients to this racetrack.


Cadet is the shortest configuration in Aston. After some very slow turns you have to be prepared for the awesome downhill chicane (screenshot). Try to keep the balance here and during the braking for the last turn and you are back on the start/finish straight. Cadet has it's own pits and a different start/finish than all other aston configurations.


Club is a very popular track, especially in combination with the XFR. The main reason for this is, that it has many full throttle parts in which you can prepare an overtaking maneuver. The most challenging parts is the chicane-like combination in the mid and the chicane in front of the start/finish straight.


Even more popular may be this track. You will probably find racers driving on this track all the time. Again, overtaking is really easy here. Despite the very slow turns in the mid of the track, this configuration is very fast. Most drivers prefer a GTR on this one.


A very long configuration. After the first turn you will drive the cadet chicane reversed followed by another chicane the takes you to the grand prix-part. After a long straight and a very fast right-hander, a series of left-right combinations with a final long left-hander takes you back to the national part. This track differs not much from the Grand Prix track but these little differences (especially the cadet chicane), well, make the difference.

Grand Prix

The longest configuration of aston. It is very similar to historic with detours around the most dangerous parts. Instead of driving the cadet-chicane you will stay on national a little longer. The fast right-hander is replaced by a fast chicane, too.
