    Oschersleben - Shell Esses Left Hander Gravel Trap

    Has anybody else noticed that the gravel trap on the right hand side of the exit of the left hand element of the Shell Esses curve @ Oschersleben seems to behave like a part of the circuit rather than a gravel trap? By that I mean if you put a wheel a good foot or so over the line and right into it the car doesn't slow down or respond as if it's in a gravel trap but instead seems to react as if it's a wide circuit-level run-off area with no noticeable loss of speed or grip?

    See the blue circle...

    I don't have a video to back this up - I'll have to do one this evening if I get a chance - but I did a small online race with a friend of mine there in Formula Rookie yesterday and ran wide on several occasions in practice through there with no physical reaction from the car. I'm pretty sure it's a gravel trap - it certainly looks like one although doing 80mph+ through it I could be wrong but I'm pretty confident I'm not.

    I haven't seen it mentioned in any other areas - hence the new post - apologies if I missed someone else mentioning it...

    Bang on - but that section to the right LOOKS like a shallow gravel trap. Am I right? I just find that if I dip a wheel in it the car doesn't react as if I'm on anything other than normal tarmac.

    P.S. Sorry I couldn't view the video from the office.
