Name the Corner!

Post by jammin78 »

A new game to keep you occupied in the off season without having to insult any driver that dares speak.

Try and guess the name of the corner/section of an F1 track from the photo! If you get it, post your own and let people guess etc, as per usual. I'll start with a nice easy one.

So, what corner is it?

Hmmm not as clear as it seemed at first. It looks like it's sloped upwards, which makes me think St. Devote. But I don't think there's been a barrier on the inside there for some time. Could be the last corner, Antony Noghes, or whatever it's called, but I'm not sure the geometry's right.

So I'm going to plump for Rascasse...?
Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then he is not omnipotent.
Is he able, but not willing? Then he is malevolent.
Is he both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil?
Is he neither able nor willing? Then why call him God?

Victory to Balibari, Rascasse it most certainly is :)
Good method of deduction. Over to you.

If only I could apply such logical reasoning to things that mattered!

Just have to find a picture of a corner that's A, not huge, B, got the name in the title and C recognisable... but not too recognisable.

EDIT

I second that answer. I remember standing on top of the rise above it and looking across that glorious view last year.

Yup. Three correct answers in quick succession suggests that was too easy!

It's not really that hard when the name is on the actual page you're referring to :)

You are too good, yes it's "The Masta Kink" at the original Spa, Sir Jackie ended up in a barn just to the right.

Masta. When I saw this thread I thought it was 'name the coroner'. I only know Quincy so I'd have been rubbish.

Wow, that was a lucky guess, it's the only name that stuck in my head after watching a feature on BBC last year about the old Spa track, and about the demise of many brave drivers! Someone else please take a go in my place, I'll do some work or something haha.

@ Michaelmad - that's more than I know!

OK, out of my league now. Maybe I'll start posting corners from my Scalextric track, they're all based on real ones. Possibly the only circuit in the world where Interlagos' Senna Esses precede The Karusel which leads into maggots/becketts before spitting you out into Parabolica.

Off topic but I recognised the old Spa corner simply because when we went to Spa this year we got lost for 4 hours and ended up walking the old track accidentally :blush:
