Title: I can't go any longer without knowing the new VIR North turn numbers...
Post by: Spinak 627 on September 03, 2020, 10:42:55 AM
Looks like there are "sections" of turns now and then a,b,c for turns within those sections:


•   T1 is the same (what used to be T1 and T2 is now just "Section 1")
•   What was considered "No Name" is now T2 or "Section 2"
•   T3 and T4 and still the same. AKA "Section 3" and "Section 4"
•   What was T5 and T5a is now "Section 5" and it contains 4b & 5a (not really feelin that)
•   T7 is the same
•   The esses after T7 is "Section 8" and consists of 8a & 8b (This used to be T8 and T9)
•   Old T10, the fast left hander (ECU Corner) and the following double-apex right-handers are now "Section 9" and consist of 9a, 9b and 9c
•   Old T14, "top of the roller coaster", is now T10 or "Section 10"
•   Old T15 (left just after top of roller coaster) is now T11 or "Section 11"
•   Old T16 (left just before Hog Pen) is now "Section 12" and consists of 12a (left) and 12b (First right apex of Hog Pen) - So the left/right is considered a "Section"
•   Old T17b (last apex before the straight) is now a lonely T13 or "Section 13"



So, North only has 13 turns now. To help me memorize this I am going to try and remember that 3 and 4 are the same. 7 is the same. The left-hander (ECU Corner) is now 9. Roller Coaster is now 10. Hog Pen is now 12b and 13.

I mostly made this post to force myself to write this all out in an effort to memorize it. Feel free to chime in with any pertinent information

You only have to remember one turn number, that’s turn 9. The rest are the same and then you go by the name for everything else.

NASCAR bend
The hook
The snake
Roller Coster
Hog Pen

I am using the old track references cause that new shit is bunk!!!!!! I crashed in 5a not 4b damn it!!!!!


It will always be “no name” and anyone that questions it or refers to it under the new terms is a conformist P&$$@!!!!!

Only 4 turns have a name
“Oak tree “
“Hog Pen”
“Fishhook “
“The Bitch”

EOR

In which corner did our recent proposal occur?  Perhaps the track can consider a special name for that corner?  For posterity.

Yeah Monkey I question that too as he tossed his ECU to hell and back in NO NAME that’s it’s name it’s not a number you don’t like it ride with some org that doesn’t put air fence out and calls it turn 2.
But I digress. Kyle has multiple ECU ejections so how do we label one turn vs the next. This is where we need to get as a society. No numbers just turns. No special ECU ejection points. You can do that where  and when you want. Let’s get back to freedom to crash with no judgement no matter our..........

Those 'section numbers' are corner worker station numbers.  :tiphat:

I too vote to stick with the previous, proper set of #'s 1-17a, that new shit is whacked!

Oh no, people look at me like I’m an idiot. Then I do the MotoGP racer hand motions and they get even more confused. Lastly I pull out my track map and point. Then they get it

For those working with me at future VIR N events, this is how I will refer to the corner numbers

•   T1 is the same
•   What was considered "No Name" is now ECU-b
•   T3 and T4 and still the same.
•   T5 and T5a
•   T7 is the same
•   T8 and T9
•   T10, is now ECU-a
•   T14 is Start of the Roller Coaster
•   T15
•   T16
•   T17 is Hog Pen

No Name = Death of Blue Pig Corner
Turn 10 = the corner formerly known as ECU corner

Kyle's ECU tosses might rival my don't remember that crash turns.  Pretty soon I won't remember anything about the track.

If you walk the track late at night some say you can still hear the sound of a tumbling ECU through the grass...

Wait what corner can you still hear an ECU tumbling through the grass? You are a multi ejector!!!!!
So what if we walk the track on a full
Moon you will hear that noise from “No Name” AKA  ECU Sputnik 2

All the way to “Upper ECU Corner”
