LayoutEdit

The circuit is essentially an oval track, featuring 3 turns having different radii and bank angles. Each one requires a different approach to complete safely and quickly.

Turn 1 is the tightest out of the 3. Make sure to brake enough so that you do not hit the wall. After turning in, gradually let off the brakes and get on the inside. Once you are past the apex, exit at full throttle.

Turn 2 is loose enough that you can clear it flat out, moving your line the left most position with the blue surface on the left serving as your guide. Get on the outside of the track just before the 200m marker board.

For turn 3, turn in using the 100m marker board as your cue. Head towards the inside while you brake, and use the blue surface on the left as your guide to go flat out on the exit.

In some cars, such as lower N class cars, you can take all corners at full throttle if your speed is low enough and has sufficient cornering.
