In this "not so great" mid-afternoon shot, we see the high banking everyone talks about. A car can really hook up with all of that mechanical downforce. But the transitions are what cause most of the problems. This is a good angle to see a couple of significant things about Slinger. First, the straights are well banked too, and secondly, the top of the track maintains a level elevation. To make the banking, the inside of the track drops down and creates a unique transition that the car must negotiate. Getting the car to transition over these parts of the track is what separates winners from losers. This car is right at that point of transition.
