Yas Marina is a longer, wider track, but with a pretty slow corners. 80 spaces long, 65% is 3-wide.

There are a couple of places on the track where we have corners without speed limits. There are also a couple of the expected changing radius corners. However, a unique feature to this track are what I'm calling run-off lanes.

The outside lanes of every 3-wide corner or corner segment (4 in all) begins with a speed limit 40 mph faster then the lane next to it, only to slow to the same speed as the lane next to it before the lane ends. The idea is to create a lane that can accommodate a car entering the corner very fast, perhaps too fast, but penalizes it by eventually requiring that car to slow to the same speed as the lane next to it after traveling 1 more space. These lanes occasionally would allow a car to run faster down the straight and enter the corner for some advantage that it will not always able to retain through the corner.

Corner 1 should be interesting as well as it is very close to the start line and several cars can exit that corner after the first turn.
