The track featured in the demo will be a short version of Mugello (pictured above), an Italian circuit used in the MotoGP.
Running across two sides of an impossibly scenic Tuscan valley, Mugello also differs from other super fast circuits in its frequent changes of gradient and the speed of its chicanes. There is a mix of slower and high-speed corners, although even the slowest corners are wide, allowing several 'ideal' lines.
Having foregone the modern tendency to reduce speeds by creating 'bus stops', Mugello's four significant chicanes are taken at a relatively high pace. Balancing out the need for firmer suspension on the high-speed sections, which compress front and rear suspension due to centrifugal forces, is the requirement for enough pliability to give tyre side grip and traction around the slower off-camber corners.
The suspension set-up quest is further complicated by the fact that on one section of the track the approach to the corners is uphill, on the other half downhill.
