About the circuit

The Brooklyn circuit is a very technical track, which has been compared to the Circuit Des Invalides in Paris as one of the more difficult tracks in the Season’s roster.

The first turn is a sharp hairpin bend, with the cars still packed tightly from the starting grid. This will likely force a very intense start as the limited space pushes the racers into close contact. The drivers will continue to jockey for position going into the next two turns which form a tight chicane. All the straights on the Brooklyn circuit are relatively short, so there is not much opportunity to really build speed to accelerate away from the competition.

Finding the right line in each corner will be crucial. Turns 5 to 9 are packed close together, and the only real opportunity to reach top speed will be coming out of turn 9, round the long slow bend of turn 10 into the finish straight. The drivers will be under a lot of pressure to perform here in the Season 4 finale in New York, and this technical track will undoubtedly add to the challenge. Be sure to tune in for this unmissable race.
