This has to be the most exciting corner Ive been round on a race track - just walking it the evening before sent a shiver down my spine.

You arrive at the corner (in my car) at around 120-125mph, coming over the crest - braking to a blind turn in point. Once you turn in (at aroun 80-85mph - wasnt really looking at the speedo lol) , the road drops away and the clipping point is also blind.

Its deffinatly a big balls corner - get it wrong and its brown pants time omg

Ive driven round it on my gaystation and even then its one of those moments where you wait to see what happens every single time, a bit like the corkscreww at laguna seca or eua rouge at Spa.

Personally one of my favourite tracks in the world.

You Joking? Eau Rouge is pretty Much flat, depending on the line you take laugh
Plenty of runoff either side, and the kerbs arent too big either. Best corner in the world happy



3rd Gear for Paddock Stuy?

Yeah craig, im not talking about the speed, as you said its about the line. It goes down and then up and over a crest, you cant see over the crest so its important how you enter the corner. It must be one of those moments like when you squeeze through a tight gap at speed.
