  • Ok.., Only two threads, try this.....

    I have been an afficanado of all types of racing for at least 50 years... I have been to many American race courses. I remember Turn One at Indy, Eau Rouge at Spa (F1 for youse guys at CC),... Puke Holler at Langhorn.... Quiddler Bacher Hoe at the OLD Nurnberg Ring... Die Flug Platz... (again F1)... All corners that are remarkable......
    What corners do you remember?
    F1, USAC,... Big Car, ... all are useable...
    surprise me....

    The Kink at Le Mans back when you had the unfettered, unchicaned Mulsanne Straight-and then the sharper righthand Mulsanne Corner after that. Heck, the old Circuit de la Sarthe in general.

        It's not a great turn, but I like it. The north turn, which would be corners 3 and 4, at the Milwaukee Mile. I go back to 1955 in seeing Indy Cars race there. To see a roadster, and yes, some dirt cars, going thru that turn, and the front left tire coming up off the track. Some cars, you would not even see that happen. But, others, they would come up off the track about a foot. It was beautiful!!!

          L'Eau Rouge as well.
          Also l'Esses at Le Mans when seen from the outside of the track.
          Daytona `Straight` end....
          Tarzan's Corner at Zandvoort was another hair riser

            Burnenville on the old Spa circuit made Eau Rouge look like a taffy pull. Turn 1 at Bridgehampton had a huge pucker factor as well.

              The Big Left Turn - Langhorne. Especially when it was dirt.

              Once paved some of the charm was gone - but still a great track.

                #1 & 2 at Knoxville, In the old days high up against the fence was a cushen. You could set your car sliding just past the flag stand hit that cushen and runner hard down the back strech. Before those big wings and tires that is. The track was still tacky after the feat.

                  As intimidating as IMS Turn 1 was when I saw it for the first time and cars flying by, standing in the dip of L'Eau Rouge and see the cars falling down from one hill and then see that steep, curved climb into the sky, (like facing a wall) that was the most intimidating piece of track I ever saw.
                  Seeing F1 or sportscars and/or GT1 cars rushing through that piece will make every `Oval Fan Only` realize that there might be more to appreciate than `tuning left only` racing after all.
                  That's why I mentioned it.

                    I'm not sure why, but I always liked the "new" Turn 9 at Riverside. It looked like an oval turn (but clockwise), and was a great last turn before the finish line.

                      Turn one at Indy is cool but turns 2, 3 and 4 ain't bad either... as I have plenty of memories of them.

                      other tracks I've been too? well there's the turns in front of the pits as Riverside... I recall a very vicious shunt with Doc Bundy in the corvette, Vern in the Jag and Lynn St. James crawling out of the flames that had engulfed her Ford Probe GTP. And I really enjoyed the first turn at St. Pete... which reminds me that I need to check the website so I can find out when tickets go on sale... don't want to snooze and miss out on grandstand 8.

                      The hairpin at Monoco has always been a favorite of mine... oh wait you said the tracks we've been too... do dreams count?

                        The Ostkurve at Hockenheim (before the chicane.)

                        Turn 6 or 9 at Riverside.

                        Turn 2 at Phoenix.

                            The right hand turn at Trenton.
                            I know what Indy means!

                              The kink at Road America isnt a hard corner but to go thru there flat out...it separates the men from the boys...

                              (*= as an SCGT player with a bunch of track downloads...lol)

                              *Pick almost any corner at the Nordschleife, most you cant see till your there..with special interest, the Brunnchen, Caroussel and Kallenhardt.

                              *Druids at Brands Hatch is an interesting corner as you head up hill, then make a 180 degree right and then plunge back down the hill

                              How can any corner thread be complete without mentioning the most famous corners of all....the banking at Monza. I'd love to get there and see it first hand...ahhh dreams
