Note: This is a pretty long section, with lots of stuff going
on. Plus, now I’m about halfway through!
After Adenauer Forst, you take the little straightaway to
a constant radius left-hander [9:56:31
- turn in at the dot]. This in turn leads to another left-hander,
Metzgesfeld is a 90° left-hander, but you have to set
yourself up for Kallenhardt, which is hard [9:56:40
- turn in at the dot].
Kallenhardt is a very late right hander [9:56:54
- turn in at the dot on the left]. The apex is extremely late
on the inside right. After the apex, track out to the left side
of the track.
After Kallenhardt, you’ll turn left, and then take a big
righ-hander. The right-hander doesn’t look big, but it will be
if you take it like a double apex. Miss the first apex, track
left, and then bring it back to the right at the other side of
On the short straight before Wehrseifen, stay all the way
left [9:57:30 - my turn in].
You’ll probably drop to 2nd gear for Wehrseifen. No one had shown
me this corner yet at the time of the video, but it’s another
late-apex corner (aren’t they all?).
After Wehrseifen, accelerate to the left of the track going
into Breidscheid, the lowest part of the track. Stay left until
the pavement changes, then go to the right side of the track.
Brake, and turn at the end of the rumble strips on the right
[9:57:57 - turn in].
Breidscheid is another double-apex kind of turn (surprise!).
Go slightly wide on the entry point, track out to the outside
(right) part of the track, then back left.
I have video of me doing a braking-induced oversteer on this
corner while chasing (but failing to catch) a motorcycle. Quite
exciting, with the smoke and all. Luckily, if anything happens
here, the ambulance is nearby this area.
Finally, start climbing the hill up Ex-Mühle. Deep breath.
Go to Bergwerk.
