Hop on the Karussell
Yes! Karussell! It's exactly like in Gran Turismo 4, only instead of lounging on my couch, I'm struggling to stay seated properly as we fall down into the steep banking of this long, looping corner. I couldn't believe how fast Theo took us through this turn during our orientation lap. I'm not quite sure why this corner is made of bumpy, lumpy concrete; perhaps asphalt would flow down the slope gradually.
This is the sharpest corner on the Ring, but you can take it very quickly due to the banking. Jay took a bunch of photos through Karussell. The forces and banking are so extreme through it that it tricked the accelerometer in my camera into thinking one shot like this had been taken upright!
I think the sign here says "Go to Hell". The Ring is nicknamed die Grüne Hölle: the Green Hell. About a dozen people die on this track every year.
