Enter the Hocheichen and descend with full throttle over a smallish bridge. Manage fifth gear before blasting up Quiddelbacher Hhe, the steepest climb of the circuit. This is a totally blind rise, the kind Hans Stuck would take at 120 mph. Slam the brake pedal so hard it pops a shoulder joint.

We enter the Flugplatz section deep into fourth. It's a double apex section. Tricky. Power-slide the Profile through this part. Next is the Schwedenkreuz, a fast, downhill section. Catch fifth gear. It ends in a few seconds and the Profile's big brakes are put to good use. Every lap is a different experience. Everyone should do at least 100.
