5.80 km, ~1.63 Liters per lap
  • No active overtakes until after Turn 9 Right, magenta in the map above.
  • The hairpin has often given troubles in lap 1. Be ready to slow down, a lot. Causing a crash here may be severely penalized.
  • No driving off-track, past the white line on the outside of Spoon (Turn 13-14 left)
  • Excessive number of off-tracks may be penalized after the race
  • No lapping in the middle of the Esses and in the middle of Spoon, under normal conditions. Give way before or after those.
    The best course of action is for the lapped car to run its line and normal pace and then give way soon afterwards, or before the esses if you see a car approaching.
    Giving way in the middle of the esses is doable but requires good car control. Furthermore, it will become a mess if a train of cars is approaching, with the lapper suddenly too slow on the racing line after the first car has passed.
