Recently, I fell in love with the Formula One board game (not Formule D or Dé but this game). It is very well balanced and doesn't really leave room for luck but rather relies on planning and resources/risk management.

Unfortunately, the version of the game I have only has one track which can get repetitive after a while. I have not been able to find other tracks even different versions of the game.

I would like to know if there is any known additional content (both official and custom).

I have already created some cars to replace the stock ones and I'm currently trying to add known tracks such as Magny-Cours (currently 100x70cm board size). A second track would be helpful to have two references regarding the balancing of the new board.


Side note 1 : I have tried to use Formule D tracks but they don't fit because the compartments are too big and need to be aligned. Also, the curves require speed limits.


Side note 2 : Sorry for the potential English mistakes. If the questions requires editing (question clarification or grammar-wise correction), feel free to point it out.

  • You might be able to adapt the Championship Formula Racing games's courses (which do have speed limits for the corners). – ikegami Mar 21 '18 at 16:46

If you go to BGG they have some print and play files.

Also, Nice pick up!

  • Thanks for the information, I didn't know about this website. Sadly, there are only a few tracks for this game (it was to be expected). Hopefully, it'll help the creation of my new tracks. – z3r0 Mar 22 '18 at 8:26

I’m a huge french fan of this extraordinary game.

You can find several interesting tracks on the Lucidphoenix site:

The owner of the site is Douglas Schultz, who remastered "Speed Circuit" in "CFR".

  • Douglas Shultz also explain how he build the tracks, very interesting :) – Patrick aka Gnaow Mar 28 '18 at 21:04
  • Oho, un français ! Thanks for the advice. I have now finished my track so I can also give some advice regarding track building as I think mine is pretty balanced. – z3r0 Mar 29 '18 at 7:36
