Track Revisions - Hockenheim While I was a bit thrown off by how this would look from an airplane, I decided on something like this for two reasons: -OTL will be similar to TTL, in that outside of Spa, there's going to be a push to shrink the tracks enough to get more laps for the paying attendees. -The new OTL Hockenheim layout must have been the result of massive apathy. The Hockenheimring was designed for speed. Pure and simple speed, and even with the 20th century added chicanes and stadium section, it was still a speed track. This version uses this, and where the Clark chicane is, a copy of the original Ostkurve is mated to the original circuit, with a short straight connecting to one of the access roads. This curves off to follow the road which links the chicanes, into a more flowing back-and-forth section before rejoining the first access road mentioned. A hard left later, and it rejoins the short track. I'm assuming it's about 5.5 to 6km. Yes, the Neue-Ostkurve at face value will sound like a slap in the face to Depailler's memory, but the new version would incorporate better runoff and barrier structures.
