5. iB_Rainy_Forest 6,5
+ Considering that this is one of very first tracks made by iBlaze, not bad at all.

My votes. Grades are out of 10 and based completely on my feeling, which in my opinion is still the most reliable way to rate a track.

1. Scud - Sc_Clarityre - 9.0
+ An absolute joy to drive with every car. Challenging, but at the same time quite easy to do a clean lap.
+ Looking great, although the lightmap is a bit over the top.

2. Etmil - Et_Halstead - 8.0
+ Fun to drive especially with sliding cars, good with Anti too.
+ Nice track length for casual racing.
- Non-standard rotation of those little cones makes it hard to assess pattern placement and to predict crashes.

3. dede - de_Plore - 7.5
+ Good-looking, decent racing track.
+ Some incredibly challenging turns. (or is that a bad thing?)
- The overall feeling is not that good; doesn't flow nicely.

4. iBlaze² - iB_Rainy_Forest - 7.0
+ Nice and simple.
+ Decent drivability, especially considering iBlaze's trackmaking experience.
- It's a bit too "90 degrees". Giving straights a different, non-standard rotation makes turns more interesting.
- Some obstacles are a tad too close to the track.

5. Keppana - k-Futurebahn - 6.5
+ Should be good to drive with Formula 1 cars.
- Doesn't meet the criteria that you yourself made, these terrains make it unsuitable for default cars.
- Track edges look unfinished.

6. Nerd [Uk] - Fox-Highway-55 - 6.0
+ Some nice curves, this track definitely would've had more potential via the "normal" approach.
- Too lengthy.
- The highway doesn't have an added value, and the first turn might be confusing to some.

7. Rendy Andrian - Re_Big Billow 4.0
+ Fancy looking palms.
- Variable track width.
- Straight tiles used to make curves.

7. fixxxer - Xx_Fuseday - 4.0
- Variable track width.
- Obstacles are way too close to the track.

Don't blame me, I just copied from Keppana's opening post and I'm sure Scud did too. Fix'd anyway. :P

I almost forgot to vote, thanks for the reminder.

1. Sc_Clarityre - 9
Excellent track. It has every kind of curves, and it's perfectly drivable with all cars. Probably last part could've been a bit better.

2. Et_Halstead - 7,5
I liked it, but some curves last forever, so it's a bit boring with fast cars such as Speeder. Very good otherwise.

Fox-Highway-55 - 7
Road signals are a bit confusing (during the cup, I considered the two vertical lines after first curve like a "do NOT go through this way"). Maybe closing "wrong ways" with obstacles would make the track more clear.
Obstacles' distance from the track is variable, so you can't drive all curves the same way; put a better attention when placing them.
Finishline is very unsuitable for wanking & start, which makes it a ugly track :D

4. IB_Rainy_Forest - 6
Some obstacles are too close to the track. Placing obstacles too close to the outer part of curves makes bounces possible. Normally I'm never talking about landscape, but this looks a bit too much repetitive :P
Pitlane is a bit strange indeed, and Tijny is correct about "90 degrees" curves. Drivability is quite okay though.

6. Xx_Fuseday - 5,5
I liked track shape, even though it's a terrible racing track because of variable track width and obstacles almost over track edges :D

7. k-Futurebahn - 5
This is hard to rate, because it would deserve better vote if we were considering F1 cars. Thin edges that could make it a bit strange to drive. With default cars it's really hard to drive, because grass/sand/etc cutting doesn't work exactly like with default tiles.
I didn't like the V-curves at the top-right corner of the track.

7. Re_Big Billow - 5
Pitlane should've been to the other side of the main straight, because guard rail makes it first curve quite hard. Various track width & obstacles too close to the track make it very hard to drive. Straight tiles used to make curves aren't very cool.
