I love Spa for the same reason.Originally Posted by Smedroc
Spa next....that is such a sick circuit.
The seeping bends as they fly up that hill
The race would run alongside the US Grand Prix in Austin which will hold its inaugural race next year. F1 CEO Bernie Ecclestone has shown interest in bringing F1 to New Jersey before and last year revealed plans for a race there should Austin - which at that time was still in its planning stages - fall through.
"It would be in front of Manhattan in New Jersey, with the skyscrapers in the background," Ecclestone said, adding: "Fifteen minutes from the centre of New York to the circuit would be marvellous."
We can only pray. Please do it at night.
The corkscrew is steeper than you can imagine. The elevation changes throughout the course is one thing that you definitely can't really get a feel for from watching a TV broadcast. Even after so many laps on the track in GT/Forza, it's surreal to see it in person. I can only imagine how it must be at tracks like Spa and Sachsenring where you can definitely SEE the elevation changesOriginally Posted by SinnerP
^ Actually, regarding LSeca, I was thinking it might not have enough ground-clearance to deal with the undulations of the track. I've never been there so, of course, it might not be as steep as I imagine.
