This is the second episode of "Attack the Track"  by The Simpit.  This series is about learning how to dissect a track map and pick our most important corners.  

Inspired by The Petit Le Mans that is going on this weekend featuring some great mixed class endurance racing, we are doing our track drive at Road Atlanta.  Road Atlanta is Northeast of Atlanta Georgia, United States and is a 12 turn 2.54 mile road course that is build upon a woody hillside.

The track features a variety of different types of corners, including on and off cambered ones, Blind corners and high speed ones as well.  It can be a challenging and dangerous track to drive.

For this track drive we are in a race prepped BMW Z4 GT3.

This is not a how to drive this track in a particular car.  We are not pointing out braking zones or turn in points.  Those thing swill change from sim to sim.  This is about picking the right driving line, and making good choices based on a track layout.  

Drivers should be able to take what we learn here and take it to any track to learn the same thing.

Fantastic!  Would have loved to see your fastest full lap from the cockpit view to see your brake points as well as turn-in and acceleration points.  Well done Shaun!!

Hey Shaun:

I was hoping to participate in the next race and on Simracing System it says it's at Fuji. Which version of Fuji should I download.

Thanks!

Sean,
I am all signed up and ready to race in the Carrera Cup, except for one thing.  How do I obtain Road America?  I do not have it in AC as one of my tracks.  Where is it?

Great review, you've convinced me to buy one of these for my rigsmile

One question, do you think the mounting brackets could be inverted (and swapped left to right) to mount it from the top?
