How Big the Isle of Man TT Track is compared to other Racetracks
Just imagine the qualifying there, though! You couldn’t do anything without a tow. I actually drove a time trial session on it in rFactor (not the most realistic simulator, but it’s the only one I know that has a mod with this track) and having just one car towing you down the straights gains you three seconds total. Obviously, if you’re in a large pack, it’ll be even more.
That said, I couldn’t accurately replicate what an F1 qualifying will look like because I’m pretty sure teams would just take off the front and rear wings for it, FF1600 style. Who needs downforce when the only actual turn on this track is done at 30mph!
