Layout and SectorsEdit
Sector 1 & 2Edit
After driving through the long main straight at top speed, you will be faced with consecutive right hand corners. Turn 1, past the straight, changes from an ascent to a flat surface, making it easy for the car to drift outward and hit the wall. Using the 100m marker board on the left as your cue to start braking, and set your apex deep into the corner. Go flat out after exiting.
Turn 2 is the opposite, going from a flat surface to a descent. Turn the car quickly towards the exit to raise your exit speed. From here, there are a series of high speed corners. The sector split is set after turn 3, which normally can be taken at full throttle.
Continuing your momentum from turn 3, continue through turn 4 at full throttle. Turns 5 and 6 form a slightly tight S-bend, turning left and right. Brake before the 50m marker board, and utilize the bank on the inner side to clear the corner. Accelerating on the outer side of the track, approach turn 8. Let off the throttle using the bridge as your cue, and turn in. For turn 9 that follows, go over the small bump at the corner entry with throttle off.
Sector 4 & 5Edit
For the ascending right hand turn 10, brake lightly before the 50m marker board, and accelerate out at the middle of the track. If you are not careful, turn 11 is a spot where you are prone to hit the wall as it becomes tighter the further you go in, and also changes to a downward descent. Control your speed using the throttle, and set your apex far into the corner when you turn.
Afterwards is turn 12, around the toll booth. Using the 150m marker board as your cue, set your apex on the corner of the second kerbstone on the inside as you go around. Care must be taken not to rush your exit, as accelerating too early can cause the car to lose balance and speed.
- In Turn 12, a stadium can be seen in the background, which is based on the Meiji Jingu Stadium, a real-life baseball stadium located in Shinjuku, around Tokyo R246. The stadium also appears in Broad Bean Raceway.
