USA braking boards

lewislockinglewislocking Member New Car Smell
I don’t know why the braking boards have been adjusted but turn 1 and turn 12 at USA are really bad. The braking board for turn 1 is so far to the right you cannot see it and just have to guess. I didn’t actually know there was one until i went on time trial and stopped to have a look.
Turn 12 it’s like they have been pulled backwards, the braking zone was at the 100m board like most heavy braking zones but the gap between the 50m board and the apex of turn 12 is around 100m. I can adjust and brake at the 50m board but it’s just not right it just be alot further back. 
Obviously i don’t run the racing line so just wondered if anyone else struggles with these corners?

    Yes, I do struggle with turns on this course.  Seems the turn 1 distance signs are on the other side of a fence well off to the right side, they are totally useless.  I'm guessing that's how it is in real life, which is a poor design choice, especially considering how blind that first turn is.

    Looks like they are very poor sighting in RL. Makes for the added challenge ;)

    You get to see brake marker boards? There's hardly ever a 100m board anywhere. Try hard racing line users often deliberately wipe them all out.

    I hated Baku marker boards for turn 1. Wish text was bigger

    Hate when that happens, I always try to find as much as possible other references. For Baku turn 1 the kerb  on the right is my reference point, I never even noticed there were maker boards there.

    Good to hear but doubt they’ll make any changes. Just makes you wonder why they were changed in the first place.

    Yeah was actually doing some TT there and can’t see the brake markers at all for T1 was using the black box as my braking point.

    find it a bit annoying actually
