Hey guys, since over 2 years I wanted to create a little guide for the Nordschleife but could never be bothered to actually do it. Now I copy+pasted all my posts I wrote about this track and finally created two videos about this awesome track. Here we go Changelog, so you know if there's something new: - 16th May, 2019: changed "patterns" in the 2nd post to the 11 categories, corrected a few corner descriptions Introduction: The Nordschleife has so many corners that you can't really remember all of them just like that. You need to build bridges and strings in your memory so you can browse your memory like a workbook. Sector -> section -> corner combination -> hints about how to take this corner right now It's like remembering a good story. You remember the basic, complete story and the more you dive into the story, the more details you remember. One leads to the other etc. Overall this track is mainly: Staying at the inside, some oversteer at the exit, a few repetitive flows, a few fast long bends where you need to keep the weight shift under control and a few times remembering to brake late or early to not crash. Basics about this track: I thought a lot about how exactly I am remembering this track and I came down to the following: It has a lot of very similar corners It comes down to be 11 categories of corners There are quite a few "repetition" that are only slightly different Once you've learnt 1-2 corners of each category, you'll get quick Then you need to attach strings to remember the combinations and repetitions The Categories: Some corners would fit in multiple categories. I chose the ones that pop into my mind first. High Speed Bends Right Side Kerb High Speed Bumps 90° Oversteery Right Tight Lefts The 2 Left Kinks Left/Right Under Braking The Karussells Sector 3: Twisty Part Stefan Bellof S (double S) Special Corners: Mutkurve, Eiskurve, Schwalbenschwanz The Sections with basic hints. Print this and look at it while practicing: Sector 1: - Hatzenbach Difficult Tight Left High Speed Bend Left Right Under Braking Right Side Kerb #1 Right Side Kerb #2 - Flugplatz, Schwedenkreuz, Hairpin (1st Full Throttle Part) High Speed Bend (Flugplatz) High Speed Bump (Schwedenkreuz) 90° Right Hander (Aremberg) - Fuchsröhre (2nd Full Throttle Part) - Adenauer Forst Left Right Under braking Difficult Tight Left 90° Right Hander Sector 2: - The Two Kinks and Tight Lefts High Speed Bend, (double left, one gear down) 1st Left Kink (braking) 90° Right Hander 2nd Left Kink (no braking) High Speed Bend (3x right) 1st Difficult Tight left (slow) 90° Right Hander 2nd Difficult Tight Left (wide) 90° Right Hander - little full throttle part (1st Full Throttle Part) 90° Right Hander - Big Full Throttle Part (2nd Full Throttle Part) Mutkurve, (brake + bit of throttle, 1 gear down, back on throttle) High Speed Bump Sector 3: - Karussell 90° Right Hander, (brake at left kerb) The Karussell, (dive in late, early on throttle) - Before The Twisties Left Right Under Braking, (no Kerbs!!, barely brake!) - The Twisty Section: 1st Right (3rd gear) 2nd Right (4th gear) Left+Right 1 (Kerbs!) (4th gear) 3rd Right (3rd gear) Left+Right 2 (no Kerbs!) (3rd gear) 90° right Hander Brünnchen Special: Eiskurve, (full over exit Kerb!) - Pflanzgarten 1 High Speed Bend+Bump, (brake after jump, keep throttle through the turn!!! Risk of spinning!) - Pflanzgarten 2 Double Chicane, (full throttle!) Stefan Bellof S, (take left Kerbs!) - Schwalbenschwanz Schwalbenschwanz Entry (beware of the weight shift!) 90° Left Hander (evil kerbs) Kleines Karussell, (dive late, early throttle, oversteer!) - Galgenkopf Uphill Right, (tap Brakes, move to left side) Downhill Right, (turn in on Hilltop, cambering gets you through) - Döttinger Höhe - Last Corners Entry Bends, (keep half throttle) Chicane, (Left Right Under Braking!) (bbbrrraaakkkeeee!!!) Done Videos showing what I'm talking about: First Video: This shows a full lap. You will see the category for each corner. Watch this while looking at the written overview above. You will start to build strings and see patterns, I'm sure! Second Video: This is cut so you'll see all corners of the same category to build strings and patterns in a different way. Watch this slow and stop between categories. It's not meant to watch as a whole!
