How can I create amazing looking racetracks for my city? I want to host Le Mans 24 hours.

1) things to remember when doing this for a real track:
A) work from the center out. (although in my example I'm starting with the yellow lines if you plan to add anything mid road then start with that and work out)
B) do the entire track at once restarting poses serious problems
C) the snap-to will make perfection near impossible
D) this is pretty large about the size of a expressway track.
2) here is a look at what your aiming at generally depending on your taste:
to create a fine line you need to set two roads next to each other using curved roads you need to mirror your first road. then chose the plaza tool to add yellow line between the roads
Note: in the next following picture the arrow points to the yellow line
here I was going to add a broken and solid white line for an example (for ease I'd suggest doing this before any other steps) by using the plaza tool i allow a gap between the last filled part and the plaza i'm placing then fill it with white instead of black creating the line
here is what it looks like: note. its really hard to get any accuracy when working with curves and a very narrow space.
the same technique can be used to create the checkered inside corner edge with somewhat better control of the outcome.
remember you need to enclose the area first. if you don't want the shoulders that large you can set a new road the distance you want it to be wide away from the line and fill that instead of simply replacing the original road with black.
by alternating between white and red plaza to fill the void you leave you create the corner checks.
then adding the slide zones and then trees you end up with a reasonably realistic race track.
