ZCT106 - Presto
« on: April 03, 2010, 07:14:10 PM »
Track spoilers : You will find a few unusual track sections when racing Presto. If they feel too bewildering after your first try, read on...






  • The bridge chicane. Don't be confused by the optical illusions and just drive it as a walled right-left chicane. By finding the right breaking point and trajectory you should be able to drive it at least as fast as a conventional small corner.
  • The fast chicane with barriers. The solid bridge pieces being used as barriers are there to prevent fast grass shortcuts. So what you need to do is to keep the car on the asphalt, especially through the middle part of the chicane, and you should be fine.
  • The final section. Again, don't be scared by the special effects and just drive straight through the jump and to the finish as fast as possible.

As for the rest of the track the key point is finding an effective trajectory, potentially using grass cuts, speed adjustments and maybe controlled slides. That is especially true for the tricky sections after the loop and the banked road stretch, where there are multiple reasonable racing lines to choose. In general, however, there is one easier way to do a section if you'd prefer to think about it later. Having a good look at the track map helps too...

The key message is : don't get scared! :)

I'm sorry to say it won't be a very popular track in the lower regions.

I agree, btm it's cool to have a track like this sometime. It helps to grow up your "stunts powers" ^_^.

Spectacular laps in the top 5 guys! And Pitman did also a good job in closing in to the veterans. I am happy that you made one of my intentions with the design - namely, stimulating pipsqueaks to find different and creative solutions - a reality  :)
