    Good question
    If it is a world circuit which you can find on Google maps then I go there and use 'measure distance' feature. I mesure the track's starting straight and when uploading the image of the layout I just try to make the Designers starting straight (500m) proportionally smaller
    In Google maps I also measure width of the track

    I hope this helps!

    When recreating GT tracks though, if I have the length of the starting straight I use it. If not I estimate it and I make a quick layout and see how much I'm off. Then I start again enlarging the image or making it smaller.

    Is it possible to shorten the straight to eg: 400 m? If yes, how ?

    I don't think it is possible
    Staring straight starts with 500m in Eifel Flat and ends up to be I think 600m
    In Eifel I think is the same except it starts with 300m

    In Andalusia it starts with 200m and end up with 800m
    Probably it's similar in Death Valley

    Unfortunately this limits number of tracks we can do unless we proportionally make whole track bigger

    I hope PD will release patch to address this issue

    I have the same problem , on a track I want to make the original straits is 300 m but when the track is finish then it suddenly is 600 m insted of 300 , that is a big failure in that patch,
