For my project this round, I renovated the Belgian Circuit of Zolder.
Obviously let’s get to the basic statistics first:
Track Length: 4.4916 km
Racing Laps: 68
Total Distance: 305.4288 km
Start/Finish Line: Bullet Dot
Sector 1: Dot #1
Sector 2: Dot #2
I’ve made quite some changes to the Zolder Circuit.
For starters, the first corner is now much deeper, hence making the pit straight longer, the curve is also a bit sharper, hence braking earlier to improve overtaking, but for the turn itself to remaining challenging.
Next, the 5-6 corner complex which was formerly known as the Kleine Chicane is now completely flat out and become a very fast, sweeping 130R-esque corner, although perhaps not as fast and a bit sharper.
Following that, the chicane ahead of what is now known as the Termalenbocht has also been taken out, and now these corners are taken almost like the two Lesmo curves from Monza.
Afterwards, the Jochen Rindt Curve, which was previously much tighter, has now been extended another 300 m further. The turn itself has become faster, but also longer. Similar to the everlasting turn 5 at Hungaroring. Then, to return to the normal circuit I have added a very fast right-left S curve.
Lastly, the final chicane before the pit straight has been flattened out, hence the main straight has become much longer. However, the new final Esse-bend is still curvaceous enough for the driver to think twice before taking it flat-out.
That is my newer version of Zolder Circuit.
