What were they thinking?: Chicane fail – WTF1

What were they thinking?: Chicane fail

Many people aren’t fans of Hermann Tilke and his circuit designs but he could do a lot worse. This is the Motorsport Arena Oschersleben in Germany, a track that hosts a round of the World Touring Car Championship.

Rather then the usual first corner chicane, the track was changed to feature two 90 degree turns. As the video below shows, it led to ridiculous circumstances.

The commentator sums it up nicely saying “The guy who designed that corner should be taken into a dark room and be beaten”.
