Taken flat-out, at full throttle, by the most experienced drivers, the “Kink” bends gently downhill, opening up your view to the highest speed section of the track, which is then quickly followed by an intense uphill braking zone.
9 - SWITCHBACK
The “Switchback” is a highly technical right-left-right turn combination with a steep elevation change, cresting over a hill. Switchback is yet another iconic MMC sequence.
10 - TURN 10
Turn 10 is a flat-out right-hand kink leading to the fastest corners on the track.
11 - KRYPTOS
“Kryptos,” named because of its “blind” cresting downhill nature, this left-right combination challenges the best drivers over and over. Kryptos is possibly the most famous of MMC’s turns.
12 - THE HAIRPIN
The “Hairpin” is a classic hard brake high-speed approach, with a banked and uphill middle to exit that rewards an “attacking” technique.
13 - TURN 13
Turn 13 is a double-apex left with a short, hard uphill braking zone followed by a downhill off-camber, blind left-hand exit.
14 - TURN 14
The track falls away beneath you as you enter the blind downhill Turn 14, holding a late apex exit to set up for the following corner.
15 - TURN 15
A tricky entry speed and line balance define Turn 15, with multiple exit options to set up the entry to 15A.
15a - NORTH CONNECTOR
The North Connector’s off-camber, downhill entry which quickly transitions to an apex compression, increases radius on corner exit onto the back straight.
