Lemans overview

Lemans Overview

This is also often the most profitable race In Real Racing 3. 80% of the track involves high speed straight, while the rest are mixture of normal to moderately sharp curve. Top speed is important, while cornering ability is also useful to keep the momentum high.

For fastest lap, corner cutting skills also important. For this you will need to turn Traction Control (TC) OFF, Steering Assist (SA) completely OFF and Brake Assist (BA) OFF too.

Here are some of sketches that I made in regards to few important corners in this race.

Here is an important part if you want to do corner cutting

Green line is the normal no-off-track line.

Orange line is moderate corner cutting, while red line is more corner cutting.

Red line can be fast but will need to really stable or your car would skid.

Porsche Curves

Overtaking cars in Porsche Curves need experience.

You have to know where the other car is heading and braking. Avoid crashing into other cars. Your racing line here would have to depend on if there any other car on the track.

If you are in doubt, just stay relatively near to the middle of the road.

Ford Chicanes
