For helping you get the best time possible in the weekly Time Trial Event, I wanted to write this article where I show you the optimal break points and acceleration points for each Time Trial (I’ll update with each new time trial).
Porsche 911 RSR Through The Years Time Trial (May 18th, 2020)
This Time Trial is on the Porsche Test Track and it’s not that difficult if you have the few crucial breakpoints ready (see below):
Let’s now take a closer look at all the break points here for the Time Trial:
#1 – in the first corner you have a right left right combination that you can take with some speed and break quite late. Also use the grass to go a little straighter than the track is, this will save you speed and help with the final time as well.
Accelerate straight in the next corner to the right side at the peak point of the turn and go full speed again until reaching the next breakpoint – no need to play it slow here.
#2 – the next turn is not far away from the first one and look out for the small street on the left side, this will be your breakpoint here that works well for that turn.
Accelerate slightly before the peak of the turn again and take it as steep as possible here.
#3 – now go all speed on the long straight and break when you see the sign that shows 150 meters on the left side to get the perfect breakpoint for the next turn. This one is a really narrow one and the make-or-break for your final time in this time trial.
Accelerate at the peak point of the turn again. You can go a little on the green to the left when gaining speed again.
#4 – this is the counterpart to the last straight section but it’s shorter and the turn is not that steep, your optimal breakpoint will be at the sign showing 100 meters on the right side.
The acceleration point is again in the peak of the turn and then pedal to the metal to gain as much speed as possible.
#5 – The next one is a little tricky. Look for the 50 meters sign on the left side and then go as straight as possible through the handicap.
Start accelerating again before the barrier, you don’t want to lose too much speed here.
#6 & #7 – break before the peak point of that long turn and than a final rough break in front of the handicap at #7. Most people don’t take this section that aggressively and lose a whole lot of time here.
Break before the yellow strip on the right side ends and then go halfway-straight through the obstacle to keep as much speed as possible. From here it’s all-in
