Spot on - Becketts it is!

Sorry to be horribly pedantic but isn't that Maggotts? I believe Becketts is the next corner?

Also if that is from qualifying this year then you couldn't have been more than about 10 feet away from me!

I thought it was just called 'Beckett's Complex' now - however if Maggot's is still the official name then yes it is!

I'm sure that was during Q2 - I was walking around the circuit trying to get the best vantage point (we left our covered grandstand seating - the missus wasn't best pleased) and I must have taken about 30 photos from there!

Well, the more I look at it the more I'm convinced it's not right. It's supposed to be Curva Grande, but it looks far too tight from that angle. Barriers are in the right place though. Parabolica has a bigger gravel trap on the outside and a grandstand doesn't it? There's less fencing at the end than there is in that photo.

BUt yeah, it's supposed to be Curva Grande, but I'm not convinced anymore, Monza corners all look too similar.


Curva Grande was the first thing that popped into my mind when I saw it.

Wow that one is tough. Only thing that springs to mind is a car facing the wrong way at La Caixa, or maybe the uphill chicane before Campsa.

It's one of the turns in the middle at Barcelona, the giveaway is that extra sausage curb they put on the inside of the corner to stop drivers cutting it too much. I think it's numbered turn 7?

Let's see who can get this one. Kinda vague, but the experts should nail it. :)

I'm not an expert so lets narrow this down,
2012 cars so it's on the calendar which lowers it to 20
It's in the day so it's not a night race which lowers it to 18
Not a street circuit, which lowers it to 15
Grass rules out Bahrain
left hander apex without rumble strip, rules out (that I can think of) Brazil, COA, Spain, Canada, Monza, Korea, India leaving 8
doesn't look like Spa nor GB or Hockenheim
That leaves Malaysia, China, Hungary and Japan
First thought was turn 2 China but closer examination reveals its not.
Next thought, Suzuka hairpin, not tight enough
Next Malaysia, pretty much all corners have rumble strips or astro turf
That leaves Hungary where two corners are possibilities turns 2 or 13 and this is where I'm stuck... so a guess...
Turn 13 Hungaroring


I agree with this deduction. Let's hear the answer :)

What was the answer on this?



Lotus chasing Lewis? Hungary then..

These were quite clear due to them both being Mclaren PR days.

1st is "The Toe" At Watkins Glen? I think its that corner, i'm not too familiar with the whole track due to being 18 and not playing much Rfactor lately haha.

2nd Photo is Bathurst, "The Dipper", straight after the Esses. Great bit of track.

How about this one?

It's the hairpin turn at the end of that zig-zaggy section at Austin. The corner immediately before the turn 8 Turkey style corner. I can't think of a corner number or name.
