In Reply to: Your definition of an apex is? posted by dpeete on February 09, 2000 at 19:19:38:
The picture is the start of a long curve (I hope this is the turn I'm thinking of) Go inside like that and you can't exit and carry enough speed through the straight.
Is this the long left sweeper that leads into a short straight, medium-heavy right to a brake slamming left hairpin? (Never been there, just an in car Camera watching freak) Speedvision! woo hoo!
: I am not sure how you define an apex, but if you have driven Sears Point you would know that the Carousel's apex is farther down the road than this picture shows and therefor the proper approach into the apex is from the outside... again, I am not far enough outside but the cars following me are way inside.
