Just pin it bro!That is FUCKING insane!!!! I mean I saw Marquez personal suitnat Laguna today in the alpinestars booth that's not a very big man but he must have some huge balls because to fly over turn 1 like that is literally insane!!! Nope I do not posses big enough balls to go full WOT over the crest of turn 1!!! @sbk1198 I will personally host you just to see you fly over turn 1 at a max speed of like 50 because you are too scared lmfao!!! :devious :BigGrin :laugh
Yeah... not my favorite turn :rant: But after the first try I made it my bitch the next two trips to that trackI still think turn 3 is the worst there :glare:. I can never get it right. The tire is cold by that time and it's off-camber.
Of course it's of no challenge to MM93.
Not sure if anyone else has read this but Elena Myers put up a blog a week or so ago talking about each turn on the track. Here's turn 1 and 3 descriptions...
Turn by turn guide to MotoAmerica at Laguna Seca
"Turn 1: The way I approach this turn, which some consider not a turn at all, is a bit different than your standard corner. Although you can’t tell on the map, the apex (the closest you get to the inside edge of the track in each corner) of this turn is the peak of the elevation on this part of the track. Although your line will be the same, you’ll really have to pick up on some reference points—bumps, lines, color variations or landmarks—to guide you through. The reference point I always used was the right side of the foot bridge that goes over the track here. I wanted to be leaned at a certain angle by the time I went underneath it.
The part where you’re leaned over the most is completely blind when you’re approaching it. This turn’s radius is more like a kink, so on a 600 you should be flat-out. It takes some serious cojones to do it, especially if you don’t have your reference points down. These elements of difficulty make this turn my all-time favorite in the country."
"Turns 3 and 4: These look like a pair of pretty basic right-hand corners, but that couldn’t be further from the truth.
Turn three is a decreasing radius corner, and quite balanced in terms of entry and exit so I always treated it as an exit corner, because that’s a safer and more repeatable approach. The entry is also quite tricky because there’s zero elevation on this part of the course and it’s really hard to see the inside of the corner. You’re going to be lost here without reference points.
Mine was midway through the curbing on the outside of the track, where there’s a certain point where I’d start my turn in. The key to this turn is to stay parallel with the inside curbing so you can get on the throttle as early as possible as you exit."
