A LAP AROUND
A lap around Spa-Francorchamps in iRacing is a challenging and rewarding experience that requires precise driving skills and a well-balanced car setup to get the most out of it. Here is a detailed explanation of one lap around Spa:
As you approach the start/finish line, be sure to get a good launch and carry as much speed as possible down the long straight that leads into the first corner, La Source. This left-hand hairpin is a tight corner that requires a good exit to set you up for the long uphill climb to Eau Rouge. Be careful not to brake too late or you may run wide and lose valuable time.
As you crest the hill and approach Eau Rouge, be prepared for the sudden drop in elevation as you enter the corner. This famous corner is a series of three right-hand turns that can be taken in one fluid motion if you have a good car setup and the right line. Be sure to keep your speed up through the corner to set you up for the long straight that follows.
