I did not dare going over 120mph through it. Too scary, it is a very critical piece with a very short amount of time and track to brake before the corner that follows. Brake too early and be killed by oversteer, brake too late and crash...
probably a bit of a severe comment there
in the dry the corner which follows foxhole you take as much kerb as possible to ensure you get a nice wide turn in for the following right hander up to adeneau forest - if you pay close attention when driving the track you notice that the grass is worn beyond the kerb, goes to show how much people cut it!
if you brake too early then you won't be killed by oversteer - you will just have more time to asses your turn in point / brake too late then you will miss your apex, to crash it will take an awful lot more factors than your braking point
i agree that it is a very awkward corner, Ian was in my EK9 when i missed 4th and over rev'd the engine into the corner - no such dramas in the M3 yet thankfully.
when you take the foxhole on sticky tyres the compression really sucks the car in, by the time your mind processes this you don't have long to brake, change down a gear, turn in.... then if you take the corner at pace you have to then make sure you have a wide entry into the r/h after, then again you are onto a tricky part of the track - adeneau forest........
adeneau forest is a tight section, you have a VERY late turn in to the l/h - turn in too early and you will ruin it
my replies before are maybe sound a bit too cocky to be fair saying i need to take things flat etc - the Nurburgring is a dangerous place, i'm not going to post crash videos as i ****ING HATE THEM!!!!! scaring people is not the best way to get people to appreciate the care they must take when driving over there - all i can say is make sure that your car is in 110% mechanical condition and you drive to within your own comfort zone and most importantly HAVE FUN!
