Just sharing a short and fun little project I did in honor of the first race of the 2024 Formula One season; the Bahrain Grand Prix. I wanted to include more trivia about the track but ran out of time (the race starts in 8 hours!).

We'll see if I can keep up with the F1 calendar, but so far so good. Here's the track guide for this week's Grand Prix in Saudi Arabia. It was a bit of a challenge fitting this long thin track into 128 pixels!

I was able to round this one out and include a bit more info/trivia about the track that I didn't have time for last week and I'm fairly happy with the result. I'll likely go back and update Bahrain to match.

I keep looking forward to these - I am pretty new to pico-8 and so seeing these as an F1 fan give me great inspiration. Keep up the great work!

Knowing that there's at least one person out there beyond my friends and family that is enjoying these is hugely motivating. Thanks for the kind words!

Round 4 - Japan! (one of my personal favorites!)

I'm experimenting with a different color scheme for the track layout this time. I wanted to try and improve contrast on the small screen of my Miyoo Mini +. Made a few other small tweaks to the template here and there. Enjoy!

Round 5 - China!

We're back in Shanghai for the first time since 2019! It also happens to be the 20th anniversary of the inaugural race in 2004!

Round 7 - The Emilia-Romagna Grand Prix

Well, the "Formula 1 MSC Cruises Gran Premio Del Made In Italy E Dell'Emilia-Romagna" if you're being technical, but how am I supposed to fit that in 128 pixels?!

Round 8 - Monaco!!!

This was one of the more challenging tracks to fit into this format so far, and with stats dating back over 70 years, the data entry was a lot more tedious than previous tracks. Phew, glad this one is finished! Looking forward to the race this weekend!

Round 10 - The Spanish Grand Prix!

Coming in a little late with this one, but at least I got it done in time for qualifying. These next couple of weeks will be interesting to see if I can find enough time to keep up. Three back-to-back race weekends!

Round 11 - The Austrian Grand Prix!

Another one of my personal favorites (possibly second only to Interlagos).

I made some improvements in the code this week that won't really be noticeable to the end user but will make life a little easier for me going forward with regard to data entry. One minor noticeable improvement is that I'm now displaying gap years where no race was held. Previously, it might have just looked like a typo where I inadvertently missed a year or two. Going forward these will be noted explicitly so hopefully there won't be any ambiguity.

At some point I'll find the time to go back and apply all the improvements I've made back to the earlier track guides. Eventually I'd like to figure out how to get these all to fit in a single cart or figure out how multi-carts work.

Anyway, enjoy the track guide and the race this weekend!

Round 12 - The British Grand Prix!

We're halfway through the season already?! On the one hand, it feels like ages ago that I put out the first track guide, but on the other hand I can't believe I've already cranked through 12 of these. Feeling good about being able to get to the end of the season without missing one.

Happy race weekend! Just a couple more before the summer break.
