The first round of the re-freshed D1GP USA is quickly approaching and we’ve finally got a look at what the drivers will be facing in Anaheim. From the diagram its different from the “Dojo” concept that was released a while back but this setup looks pretty challenging nonetheless. After a long straight drivers will be heading into a right hand turn at about 65mph and from there its all front facing clipping points until the finish. Should be interesting!! If you haven’t gotten your tickets yet, point your browser to D1GP.com. Word has it that the VIP seats are already sold out so if you’re looking to be there you should hurry before its down to standing room only!.
