Racetracks by Carlos Segura and Chris Manfre.

In the world of motorsports, all eyes are front-and-center on the drivers and their racing machines. Not to be forgotten, though, are the circuits on which the high speed action takes place. Each track has its own personality and is a work of art in its own right.

RACETRACKS is a tribute to 111 of the best known tracks in the world. If you're a racing fan you will surely spot your favorites right way. If carbon fiber and alloy flying by at 320 kph isn't really your thing, we think you'll still appreciate the RACETRACKS as forms, and find ways to use them in your design and illustration.

Planning on using these icons in a video game or other product? Contact us to arrange proper licensing and feel free to check out the usage guidelines.

Note that the RACETRACKS have been optimized as graphic elements. Tight passages and convolutions have been adjusted to balance the forms and convey the spirit of each track, rather than just the literal cartography.

Produced by Justine Mendoza and Chiharu Tanaka, PSY/OPS
