[Cadillac Drivers' LOG] Around the Karussel

Recommended Posts


By Rob

I was thinking of the toughest areas of the Ring and immediately came to the Karussel.

It’s called that for the obvious reason: it’s a constant radius turn just like what we’d call a “carousel” in English. The best word to describe it is “abusive.” You can see from this photo that it has a bit of banking to it, and the pavement is very uneven.

One of the main things that makes the Ring such a great test of a car is the extreme forces it places on the vehicle. In the Karussel, the lateral and vertical forces – what we call “loading” on the chassis -- are really high. If you’re going to have a failure (something breaking or fatiguing), this is likely where it will happen.
