|Autodrome Lago Maggiore - Center|
|Circuit Length||1.706 kilometres (1.060 mi)|
|Track Type||Original Circuit|
|Appears in||Gran Turismo Sport(Update)|
The center circuit of Autodrome Lago Maggiore is a short 1 mile long circuit that combines both straights of the Lake Maggiore circuit. This makes the track ideal for learning the basics of sports racing and kart racing, while still allowing for high speeds.
The circuit employs both shortcuts into its design while still retaining parts of the original circuit, such as turns 1 and 2 and the high speed chicane leading up to the back straight. Both shortcuts are set on descents and therefore are spots prone to understeer.

For the hard left turn 1, brake using the 100m mark board as your cue. Depending on your approach speed, this may be as far back as the 150m marker board. Exit the corner from a middle line. Once you brake and enter the tight turn 2, turn the heading of your car while being careful not to apply too much throttle. The surface is banked towards the outside, so you need to be careful not to go wide and off the track.
For turn 3, turn in where the kerbstones on the right start, aiming for the apex at the orange kerb. Release the throttle slightly before the apex to avoid understeering the car towards the outside wall. Reapply full throttle as you descend down the hill. Maintain full throttle from the exit of turn 3 through to 6, clipping the apexes of each turn in sequence.
The second shortcut comes up quicker than it appears and is completely blind, with no clear indication of where it starts other than the distance markers overhead. Begin braking from under the overhanging sign at the 150m marker board, and brake in a straight line. Maintain steady throttle as you enter, aiming to touch the apex. As you exit, increase the throttle and allow the car to move towards the outside of the corner, aiming to increase your speed as much as possible for the run home.
