I have been putting in some laps at the Sachsenring. It is nearly impossible to make many laps in a row with out crashing.
The big cintributor to this is the damn strip of "sticky dirt" on both sides of the track. If you put a wheel even slightly off, you get sucked off the track to your doom.
This track will destroy many teams. It is worse than Bremgarten in my opinion.
It is not hard enough with the slippery tarmac, dips that can send the car into a spin, curbs, walls, high speed section with drop-away banking on both sides, it also has to have "sticky dirt" everywhere.
Is there someone who can get rid of that "sticky dirt"? If not, I say we replace this track on the schedule.

It is not the driving surface that I was talking about. It is just off the driving surface.
I am insulted by your comment Michi. I have learned many, many tracks. The idea that I would not try very hard to get it right is insulting. I am not making the suggestion because I do not want to try. I am making the suggestion because this track will be the doom of many teams. Real tracks have been abandoned by real racing series because of their danger. Corners on real tracks have been reconfigured because they were awkward and no one liked them. Entire ovals have been torn up and redone for these same reasons. What I am suggesting is not cowardly, but wise. Besides my first suggestion was to fix a texture strip, not replace the track.

we've raced Sachsenring before. yes, some do have issue with staying on track, and no, i don't have results at hand to point out how many... or how many finished. but no one has ever called for it 'never to race here again'........ and we have had those kinds of calls, just not for this track
