That's very true but it's still great to learn the track like this.I know. Grant Turismo has too, but it's different for arcade and simcade compare to ac and rf2.
I think since GT6 all real tracks in GTS were laser scanned. So no problems learning the track with GTS.I know. Grant Turismo has too, but it's different for arcade and simcade compare to ac and rf2.
Since it's in the Assetto Corsa Forum, it refers to the official, laserscanned version from Assetto CorsaI'm not sure which version of Nurburgring this guide and thread refers to, but FWIW, Niki Lauda listed the leap at Pflantzgarten as "the most exciting place in all the world's grand prix tracks" in his first book (1975). The last airborne leap in Grand Prix racing back then. A spot which caused Hans Stuck to opine: "That knocks the wind out of you down to the last fart!"
Nice video and absolutely agree!Just jumped into this interesting thread.
Drove Die Grüne Hölle in real life just a couple of years before GPL came to the sim marked with a Nordschleife track available, and just after this playing the track mod for F1C99-02 (yah, I was born in a wrong era, and had to wait as a late teen until Speed King for C64 as most advanced 'sim' in 1985 ).
I agree with almost all parts of the OP's tips (big kudos!)
Except that I will narrow it down to a more general driving manner, speaking complex tracks:
Those simple basic rules helped me a lot in early rally games and my real life debut at Nordschleife and later more complicated simracing tracks such as Machwerk, Solitude, Nordschleife Gesamtstrecke, and rally courses like Peyregrosse, not to mention the Kesselberg 70K Runde and especially Targa Florio 72K classic track.
- Slow in - fast out
- Keep the car stable
- Start out first lap in a slower car (more grip than power and able to break before crash)
- Drive first couple of laps at maybe just 70% of full speed - close to cruising.
- Split the track up in sections in your mind after own choise.
- Concentrate at one or two sections at a time the first laps you drive
- A lot of sections with slightly curved course can be regarded as straight lines in your mind
In fact my first lap at Targa Florio in a GTR2 mod some 10 years was near to perfection, just as some marathon runners experience their first marathon as close to perfect; I felt calm all the way, taking it easy with slow in - fast out all the time. At the second lap where I tried harder, in fact I ended up 45 secs slower! So again - have the safe cruising feeling with early braking and fast out all the way, and doing right heel+toe handling of the gearbox payed well off.
Apart from that, I can warmly suggest both NS beginners and +2000 laps experts of the track to take 43 mins of their time with this video from real world classic race car driver driving Die Schleife:
