The Grand and Great British Grand Prix
This weekend, the fastest racing series of single-seater vehicles will visit the birthplace of British motorsport at the legendary Silverstone circuit. A place well known to everyone who has even touched motorsports at least once. One of the oldest race tracks in the world where all kinds of motorsport competitions are raced.
Silverstone was established in 1947 around the former RAF military air base, after several modernizations in its present shape is a 5891 m long and consists of 18 turns. Driving on Silverstone, every driver will find something interesting.
There are slow corners here, T4 “The Loop” and the combination T6 – T7 “Luffield” where exit traction is important. There are fast bends like T1 “Abbey” or T9 “Copse” where good aerodynamic balance is important (when following closely the preceding car it is easy to fall outside the track).
Finally, we have the famous combination of turns “Maggots”, “Becketts” and “Chapel”, which is the essence of the engineers’ search for a stable car setup. Drivers with weaker downforce may see their chances in the DRS zones on the “Wellington Straight” and “Hangar Straight”.
Virtually every part of the track creates an opportunity for interesting duels and bold overtaking maneuvers. One could mention here many unforgettable rivalries, both from the old days and the present – this is where the legends of players such as Nigel Mansell and Lewis Hamilton were born.
One of the key turns on the Silverstone track is turn No. 7 “Luffield”, a double right, where good traction is important both on entry and exit, after which the competitors for more than 20 seconds go along the old start straight with gas in the floor up to the famous “Maggots”, “Becketts” -and”Chapel” curve combination you can gain (and lose more) a lot of time here.
A large number of quick curves and the new surface strongly affect the tires, which are subjected to extreme overloads (mainly lateral). The right choice of mixtures and the strategy of long trips have a measurable impact on the final result. To all, this should be added, as always, unpredictable English weather, which can surprise players and team strategists at any time. All this makes the fans eagerly visit the British birthplace of racing to celebrate the national automotive holiday together in a picnic atmosphere.
As you can see, an interesting but flat like an airport 😉 the legendary loop of the English track can certainly provide a lot of excitement for both drivers and fans. Now it’s time for the participants of the IRG World sim racing series to write their legend this Sunday.
