Thanks for the clip, the circuit looks great! Very smooth, very broad with a number of clear overtaking areas and very fast turns. I'm getting excited. :yes:

Looks like one of the few tracks on the calendar where as a driver you get the feeling you're going somewhere. Spa is another (better) example of that.

I think an edit of the thread's title is in order! a few trees and this looks like a world class circuit.

That first corner is a beast!

First corner and elevation changes remind me a lot of A1 Ring. It sure will be a track with a tricky grip finding and plenty overtaking spots. Nice job. :D

I tried to time it but couldn't clearly see the start finish line... it looks like it's well over two minutes a lap? :yikes: He must have been dogging it through the circuit, it's not particularly long.

I love that first corner. I have high hopes it'll become one of my favourite corners on the calendar.

I don't remember any other new circuit that had been told about this much.We haven't had any race there yet but I feel as if it's on the calendar since forever.

Green circuit, demo tyres, probably some extra limits on the car...

Or Jerome is in fact just really slow. :hehe:

Well, maybe his setting was wrong, but he was fighting with oversteer and understeer in many corners.
