On the long straight, all race vehicles will reach their maximum speed and then brake for the first corner which is T1. In 2010, Audi R15 TDi race car reached a speed of 289 km/h.

T4 is a difficult left turn, but it is also an ideal overtaking spot. After coming through the high speed T3, drivers will attempt to overtake their rivals using late braking.

T9-T10. T9 is similar to T4. As T10 is very close by, some drivers lose control here.

T14. This is the last corner and is a fast corner. Drivers only need to brake slightly and try to drive through the corner at the highest possible speed so that they can go very fast on the main straight in front of the grandstands.
