The FIA-certified on-road circuit of the Porsche Leipzig Test Track is modelled on famous sections from racetracks around the world: from the first bend, based on the corkscrew at Laguna Seca, to the very last curve sequence reminiscent of the Suntory Corner.
Type: right-left-right combination.
Character: 12% gradient. And you can’t see into the bend at all. Added to this, there’s the constant switch between understeer and oversteer, and the high g-forces on entry. In short: simply spectacular.
Mobil 1 S
Type: right-left chicane.
Character: The S curve that throws up a host of questions. Too fast or too slow? With curbs or without? 2nd or 3rd gear? Approach from the outside or keep tight at corner entry? If you can answer these, you’ve perfected your driving skills.
Curve di Lesmo
Type: right-hand corner (oval).
Character: The curve that never ends. This extremely long-sweeping turn can be taken quicker than you think due to the almost imperceptible incline on the inside.
Type: left-right-left chicane.
Character: The key to speed is courage – and perfection. Keep as straight as a die, then turn the car and accelerate out of the curbs under full load.
Type: right-left combination.
Character: After braking hard and downshifting, manage the load changes sensitively to exit a curve with a very big radius and go straight into an extremely tight bend.
