… that has to do with gasoline, acceleration and adrenaline. Decide for yourself whether you want to race around the track in a sports car or on a motorcycle, put your driving skills to the test off-road, get closer to perfection during a training session in the Driving Center or let yourself be initiated into the secrets of racing by motorsport professionals.
Turn 1 features the most action of all the turns. If a driver brakes too late, he gets carried outwards to the curb or beyond, and if he hits it too early, he becomes easy prey for his opponents.
A true overtaking hotspot. The slowest turn of the race track and the best place for an out-braking manoeuvre.
T4 – Rauch Curve
The curve sloping outwards is usually taken in third gear, followed by a shortshifting to seventh gear. If you are not careful here, you’ll be off the track in no time.
The track declines here and the drivers see the apex of the turn very late, meaning they have to turn in almost blind.
From 190 to 260km/h: The car must be positioned in such a way that it is not carried too far out at the end of Turn 8, because the curb quickly comes to an end here.
T9 – Jochen Rindt Curve
The drivers come into it at 250 km/h and drive almost blind into the exit of the turn.
If you don’t stay on the ideal line here and get some momentum to take into the 626-metre start-finish straight, you can end up losing the race in the last few metres.
T2 – Munzer Curve
The extremely fast left turn merges seamlessly into the steepest section of the route (12 percent incline. As of 2022, Turn 2 will become a chicane that is only driven in MotoGP and its supporting series.
This curve is not really tricky. For the pilots, the main thing is to prepare for the upcoming double links.
In Kurve 7 geht es für die Piloten erst in eine Senke und dann wieder bergauf.
