Ever hear of "Autopolis"? It's a racetrack in Japan - 1 August 2008 - Will Pittenger's stuff for Google Earth and maps
My name is Will Pittenger. I have been making KMZ sets for Google Earth for a long time. After I starting making those, I wanted overlays for my sets. I was unsatisfied with the accuracy of the images available at Wikimedia Commons. So I started making my own with Inkscape and uploading them. Then I needed a place for anyone that liked my KMZ sets and/or maps to find others. For a while, a simple blog sufficed. But, once I started getting requests, I knew I needed something better. This site is the result. You are welcome to set up an account. Some activities are for registered users only. Take your time poking around and let me know what you think.

You might have not heard about this track. They have only a couple
top-level motorsports events. They tried to land Formula 1, but failed
and went bankrupt in the process. The circuit was considered too remote
due to the distance from hotels. Fortunately, Google Earth had hi-res
imagery here despite the "remote" location.
I have included an
overlay, two track configurations, and turn placemarks for each turn.
Bonus: I found a go-kart track with another 11 layouts.
