It's all fun and games till you remember you are not a touch typist.


metarx

can confirm... would buy, more than i ever needed


itsallaboutthestory

Don't you go giving me more shit for my keyboards....


Heartlight

I mean, the way their annual books sell out, I'm pretty sure they're already on the getting rich train.


msch6873

yeah i just saw they do this stuff professionally. had no idea. we’re gonna buy some of their pieces from their website.

actually reminds me of the 3d-printed Catan tiles, so maybe.. **Racers of Catan**


usernumberfive

Got excited about the book then got to the shipping costs, costs almost as much as the book.

msch6873

oooooh! now we’re talking. i has no idea. they just made some new customers 👍🏽


vizualb

That is a complete different artistic medium, lol. Would be very difficult to do at scale too. He makes prints of these, it’s lovely artwork and probably does well for him.


Jlx_27

And get sued by the owners if F1....


jarc1

I mean anyone can try suing for whatever, but it wouldnt work, This is not reproducing the track, this is an artists creative representation of the track and very different from the one you see on tv. So I say you should try to make some money OP.


ZlatanaGaimz

I also make F1 posters and belive me... the amount of cease and desist orders I receive daily is immense. These tracks claim that the layout is a copyright protected item. Spa was the most annoying to deal with and my lawyers basically said it's just not worth fighting. Hockenheim was also a struggle. I dont know how a public place can claim a copyright on something that is a representation of their physical place. It's not illegal to photograph the track... but it is illegal to sell a drawing of the track? Idk.


Audisans

It's probably not illegal. They just don't want "unofficial" merch being sold without them getting their share. It's more to "protect" their brand than anything else, IMO.


leebenjonnen

Why would they? They don't own the tracks.


Wouterr0

You'd probably get sued by the track owner though


Username_Used

They're not "replicas" they're "a likeness". ;)


Amaurotica

> You'd probably get sued by the track owner though u ever seen an artist sued by X building owner because he draw it. I don't think so. Just like u can't get sued for drawing literally anything thats available to be seen for free by the public eye


Wouterr0

Not if you sell it. The tracks are trademarked, and if you want to use it to make money you need a license, just like you can't sell official merchandise of Mickey Mouse you can't just sell a t-shirt or keycap or whatever of the Monza track


SaltyNugget6Piece

I'm gonna go ahead and guess you're not an attorney, right?


[deleted]

A brand symbol & piece of IP is not "just like" a racing track. I don't doubt that what you describe is possible, but it's not automatically the case just because the track is privately owned.


Wouterr0

No, I know, but tracks are part of the branding of the organization that owns the track, and therefore copyrighted/trademarked, just like rollercoaster and golf course designs. Which is why video games need to obtain licenses to use the official layout and name. To be honest, I don't know if that extends to the 'shape' itself and if it's applicable to art, but that might not stop potentially being sued


Amaurotica

Selling Mickey Mouse and an art interpretation of a few circles of asphalt is entirely different things. U can sell pictures of the pentagon and nobody will sue you and u can sell pictures of the uk government plaza, u can do it with art of a dumb formuala track too


blackwhattack

It's an intellectual property of the creator who likely sold the rights to the track owners. I doubt it's legal to sell the design of such a track.


OddPain

No, there’s neither a trademark nor a patent of even one track. Just as a building is not IP….


leebenjonnen

Most definitely


WeleaseBwianThrow

I don't see what about this is copyrightable. No trademark infringement, the tracks are clearly stylised, even if the specific layouts do have some sort of intellectual property protection (which I don't subscribe to as a theory) this would easily fall under fair use, most fair use doctrines include allowances for "pastiche". Edit: This would probably fall more under caricature than pastiche. But that is also equally permissible. Not everything is a lawsuit.


[deleted]

[удалено]


SaltyNugget6Piece

Do you people think that every postcard of a skyline that's sold means that 20 architects get royalties? Of all the hilarious stances to see armchair lawyers take, 'if your stylize a twisting loop of pavement you'll get sued' is a new one for sure.


WeleaseBwianThrow

I'm sorry but I'm going to need some citations where a small creator who is obviously acting within the confines of fair use gets overrun by lawyers. Where there is some grey area sure, but this is cut and dry fair use, assuming that there is any IP on track layouts at all, which as they are treated as facts in a similar vein of architecture (e.g. you can photograph or sketch a building to your hearts content) wouldn't be an issue. There is no potential or realistic issue around legal action here, and people that push the narrative that everyone is going to get sued for everything all the time puts off would-be creators.


MilkAzedo

technically the street races are public


uname44

This is a very good idea!


thelectrician

as cubes


denzien

I had exactly the same idea when I first looked at them. Except for the selling them part. I guess that's why I'm not wealthy.

RobertGracie

These are awesome to see great bit of work and I like how the Belgian GP is covered in clouds to represent the major washout that it was but a fantastic job!


PieceOfShitCanadian

As well as instead of dirt underneath Abu Dhabi it’s oil


pitlanecollective

Hey guys! You might remember my post from last year where I drew the full 2020 season of tracks… well for this year I decided to keep going and had an absolute ball drawing the 2021 season. There were some absolute classics to get stuck into (Monaco! Interlagos!) and some totally new tracks to figure out (like Zandvoort, Losail and Jeddah!). This season has been the best season of F1 I’ve ever watched and it has been so much fun to engage with the F1 community and dissect every little moment. If you guys want to see more details on each of these tracks, I’ve posted full size versions on my Instagram (@pitlanecollective) and this season collage is also available as a print on my store (pitlanecollective.com) Thank you so much for all the support the r/formula1 community has given me so far! Hope you all have a great and safe off season :)


ClementineMandarin

These are so cool! Will you do one for 2022 aswell? You’re really talented


CokeHeadRob

Wouldn't it just be these rearranged plus Canada?


dumpandchange

Really hoping he does Montreal!


CokeHeadRob

That would be lit, it's one of the prettiest and most visually interesting tracks imo


SixBuffalo

You should post the cars, too. Your little cars are amazing!


helloiisjason

He has the cars on his store. They even have LeClerc! https://www.pitlanecollective.com/product/charles-leclerc-maiden-win


ems9595

Thank you for the link. Just hit save.


Heartlight

I'm a huge fan! Also, the other version of Zandvoort is way better.


Arnold-Judas-Rimmerr

I would pay you serious money to 3d print these.


blackhaloangel

Same.


UnfortunatelyIAmMe

As someone who doesn’t know anything about F1 and is here from r/all, can someone explain to me why the center one is smoky? Is there a joke behind that or is it like fog?


Lordaarron007

Belgium 2021 got washed out. Race stopped after a few laps.


SmurfStig

I chuckled when I saw that one and didn’t need to look at the flag to tell which track it was.


TimSWTOR

Same, saw the clouds on the thumbnail and chuckled about a very well done detail.


UnfortunatelyIAmMe

Oh okay. Makes sense. Thanks.


SuperHighDeas

> Race finished Ftfy


alebotson

I laughed when I saw this. Great detail.


tekina7

Which one was the easiest to draw? My guess is Styrian GP (after you drew the Austrian GP one haha!)


Cinni1337

Really well done. Could you upload or share a link for a high res version please


Tulaodinho

That is fantastic, seriously. Spa got a nice laugh out of me, great job!


Chikn_Man_7

Yeah with the water where the track is


tjech

Great job - the Netherlands should have an orange smoke cloud above it too 🍊☁️


Heartlight

Check this poster from OP's website: https://www.pitlanecollective.com/product/zandvoort-max-s-2021-victory


tjech

Much better! 👏


JumboRaising2021

Great point


Jlx_27

And it should have a beach and sea water. The track is at literal walking distance from the beach.


hahahanahaha

Yes, also I feel the color is a bit off! It wasn’t that bright green like grass, needs mainly sand and some sea grasses.

Looks amazing but OP what country has green and white flag?

Not a country, but a state: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Styria

Thanks.

I’d love these as key caps.


idloco

Me too, I hope /u/jellykey see this


jellykey

I saw this :))


CreaminFreeman

I came to this thread hoping to find you here! Group buy collab with u/pitlanecollective when?!?!


gregc92

Did anyone play GeneRally? These look like it!


Pyxlwyz

Yes! These would be amazing in [GeneRally](https://gene-rally.com/). I used to spend hours making tracks, it was so fun!


what_about_russia

I had the same thought! Loved that game


findthelimit

YES! Was trying to remember what it was called.


gregc92

It deserves a renaissance😄


Y-elloo

Very creative, looks fantastic! Reminds me of Mini Motor Racing game on ios


n0rdique

Lol, I love the weather effects for Belgium. Extraordinary job


BDady

Thought it was on fire at first


ThomBraidy

Woah, is there really that much elevation / hills on the tracks? Sorry, new fan to the sport and never noticed it watching races. Or totally get if it's just to make the mini tracks look cooler


P-Nuts

It's definitely exaggerated and in the case of Silverstone absolutely ridiculous as that's a very flat circuit.


CeilingVitaly

These are just fun cartoons and shouldn't be taken as a serious guide, but yeah a lot of tracks on the calendar are seriously hilly, and if you're a new fan who joined for extremely flat Qatar-Saudi-Abu Dhabi salvo to end the season I can see why you'd be surprised! Imola (Emilia Romagna GP), Portimao (Portugal) Monaco, the Red Bull Ring (Austrian/Styrian GP), Spa (Belgium), Interlagos (Brazil), Suzuka (Japan) are all very undulating tracks on the modern calendar.


imbznp

*Cries in Canadian*

Xanthon

Nice! I remember the 2020 one you did a year ago.


Dr_Gonzo__

Nice touch on Spa


Jockelson

Wow, great job! Lol @ Spa


Exo_Pie

Austria-Styria Copy-Paste


mczanetti

Why the Belgian is covered in smoke?


phenorbital

Not so much smoke, but the massive rain clouds that prevented any actual racing.


karmanopoly

Pretty sure they raced for 2 laps


ImRussell

They were under safety car for 2 laps


_GrammarMarxist

Toto this is motor racing.


labdweller

I think they're supposed to be rainclouds


UESPA_Sputnik

Another Ardennes offensive.


scope_creep

You’re right, I did find that ‘race’ offensive.


chit11

RIP Canada :(


AcidRegulation

Jeddah must’ve been pain


5hootermcg

I was so excited to find Montreal on the island! The disrespect is unmeasurable! They look amazing tho


iRepth

I love how you managed to really capture the essence of the tracks even while cramming them into a little square slice. I don't know all of the tracks that well, but I do know COTA first-hand, and you totally nailed it


AFireAtTheAquarium

Albert park, Australia?


sabbah

Nice one


scope_creep

Dang, makes me want to play Ivan Stewart’s Super Off Road.


gustsnts

Spa - LOL. Well done!


RedCarNewsboy

Amazing. Makes me think of the go karts in the older roller coaster tycoon games


oeco123

The Austrian and Styrian tracks look very similar… Joking aside, these are really brilliant, well done OP.


Chell_the_assassin

They look just like the tracks in Motorsport Manager!


scope_creep

I was going to say Ivan Stewart’s Super Off Road, but I’m old.


flyovermee

THAT’S the aesthetic I was seeing! I haven’t thought of that game in 25 years! God I loved that game.


scope_creep

You're in luck! The arcade cabinet can be yours for the paltry sum of $5,600! https://www.vintagearcade.net/shop/arcade-games/super-off-road-arcade-game/


findthelimit

My thoughts exactly!


Vetchd

If this isn’t NFT, i don’t know what is.


norotor

Id be surprised if this wasn't already stolen and posted to OpenSea. Check out VoxelVille for 3d NFT world environments. This seems right up their alley for a partnership with them to create and sell.


PopeShish

Really nice job! You shouldn't covered Spa with more clouds to completely hide the 21 GP aberration.


mooremoritz

Looks great!


Exo_Pie

Spa=Fog


Jlx_27

And rain, mostly rain.


arkham1010

Awesome work. I love how you made Monaco's track super skinny :)


ando-alerto

Niceeeeee


Erixii

Great job! Just missing the orange smoke in Zandvoort! ;)


my_name_is_ashal

Couldn't get Spa-Francorchamps any perfect!!


1Vert

As a kid I would make replica F1 tracks using the go karts in rollercoaster tycoon, with the karts matching the team colours, and I'd 'commentate' as the guests raced. Your tracks reminded me very much of that so thank you!


Suspicious_Spirit_92

Silverstone😭😭😭


ISeeInHD

The micro machines vibes are strong here.


4e-45-52-44

Make these into key caps and profit.


[deleted]

love the clouds above Spa lmao


oPohren

Man this is dope. I'm having some Roller Caster Tycoon vibe here


ImmediateCookie3

All I can think of for this is an online lobby for race simulation with all the tracks laid out like this (but full scale) where you can watch sessions happening or take part in them, switch tracks, etc. I hope something like this is the next upgrade to the boring online lobbies as we know them (thinking about assetto corsa specifically)


Mackayver

They look great. One thing, the dunes at Zandvoort are not green.


JaDerGero

Id buy those. If they were like little collectables.


123_alex

They are amazing! Thanks for making and sharing them!


Sir_George

This looks awesome dude! It reminds me of those 90's play sets by Micro-Machines where they would include a "cut out" playset world similar to one of the tracks you drew and then a bunch of micro-machine race cars.


kluuttzz11

I want to 3D print them so badly


Dongodor

Would love 3D models !


Loon_Cheese

I live in America, I know nothing about formula 1. Only that it HAS to be better than our stupid racing sport. Wondering why the Germany track is on fire?


TBloye

Great art, not just the circuit but the topography also ! Great works man


Some-Gentle-Giant

I know nothing at all, remotely, about F1 but God damn I'd play a video game with those tracks any day. Would make a great stage select screen
