Master Lime Rock Park’s “Big Bend”
Take On Big Bend
Probably the most famous corner at the track, this is actually two tightly linked right-handers. Big Bend is two corners (1 and 2) and combined, the car is changing more than 180 degrees in direction. Big Bend is a classic entry-speed corner – you want to carry as much speed into the corner as you can. This is a very long, and pretty fast, decreasing radius right sweeper that officially counts for two turns. Each driver with some experience at Lime Rock tends to have their own line through this turn.
