Circuit LayoutEdit

Sector 1Edit

The Seattle Short Circuit begins with the same long stretch along the waterfront as the Full Circuit, curving gently to the left, and followed by a tight, double-apex right-hand hairpin with very little room for error. This takes you under the elevated highway and round the back of the pit-lane. However, instead of taking the gentle left turn and heading over the infamous three jumps, the course stays on a straight path here towards a wide 90° right-hander. The first sector ends before this corner.

Sector 2Edit

Sector 2 is a much more technical portion of the course. Starting just before the 90° right-hand turn, it then takes players down a short straight to a sharper 90° left-hander, which then leads to an even sharper pair of right-angled corners combining to form a 180° right-handed hairpin. After turning 'round here, there is a much longer straight than the previous one, leading to, once again, a 90° left. Sector 2 ends just before this corner.

Sector 3Edit

Consisting of the final two corners, Sector 3 starts with the aforementioned left-hander, then heading down another medium-length straight towards a very tight 180° hairpin, the final turn of the lap. High-powered vehicles may prove difficult to handle here, as the combination of high-speed braking and the sharpness of the corner can cause oversteer. After completing the turn, a short blast down the straight is all that remains to complete the lap.

Race Series featuring Seattle Short CircuitEdit



  • When driving past the closed left turn towards the jumps featured in the full course, you will notice it is very low-texture and missing details. This is probably to save memory for the driveable portion of the track.
