“The historic chicane at Monaco is certainly as much of a challenge to get right in rFactor 2 as it was in real life. The scene of Lorenzo Bandini’s fatal accident in 1967, it was an extremely tight transition between the cliff road and harbor road beside it. The chicane is probably the most difficult turn at the historic track, closely followed by turn one and the entry into Casino square.”
Tim also shares his thoughts on the approach to the chicane:
“You must stay to the right or you risk reducing your possible angles far too much. The escape road of the chicane is filled with bales of hay which you can easily slide through, sending them flying until you hit something more solid. The chicane has objects which are concrete, wood, supported by sandbags, etc, and these all react in the way you would expect. Clipping the chicane can lead you to go spinning down the following straight or even send you into the air, landing in the water of the harbor.”
Tim also commented on water movement, given its presence in the background at Monaco. “I believe I’ve seen water reflection of the ‘Red River’ at Spa,” Tim says. “But I can’t say I have noticed at Monaco. The water does move, though.”
Recall that these photos are representative of a work in progress. No poking fun at the driver… yet. The Monaco background to me already feels invigorating; and that chicane does sound like a challenge. What do you all think?
