This is more of a description of the track than a hot lap. My time at Roebling Road has been limited but I have enjoyed the track and I'm sure you will, too.
The track is one very long straight down the front and a series of decreasing radius turns around the back. A couple of corners are really two corners both in numbering and in how they are laid out. You have to think of them that way. It is a handling course with only two power sections, the short straight out of T7 and the "dragstrip". It isn't really a dragstrip, but it sure looks like one.
Turns 1 & 2 make a right hand hairpin at the end of the long straight. IF IT IS WET, be real careful as there are many flooded spots and many end up in the tire wall that is fairly close to the track at T1. Most double apex this curve, making a late apex for T1 and a regular to slightly late for T2.
Slight straight to T3, a LH 90. You exit T3 in time to cross back over to set up for T4 a RH 150. Most single apex T4 with a very late apex. There often is a lot of dirt thrown on the course here so watch for it. Roughly midway through the corner, there is a ditch perpendicular to the track towards the woods. If you go off track to the outside, it makes for a rather unpleasant ride.
Many exit T4 and stay left and ride the inside of T5 (LH 120) to the apex and then track out. I exit T4 to the left and then cross back to right to do a normal corner out of T5 with a late apex. They may be defensive that way but I have found that I can run faster so their defensive line keeps me in front since I'm faster. However, in Solo I, you don't need defensive.
Short chute to T6, slightly downhill. T6 and T7 form a RH 180 that runs downhill nicely. Regular apex at T6 and at T7, with T7 being maybe a bit late if you can manage to stick while still in T7. I believe this may be slightly off camber as it is usually hard to stick in this section. T7 leads to a straight that makes a slight bend at T8 (basically a flag station only up on the hill) and a very fast downhill dip in the center of RH T9.
The entrance to the pits is just before T9. On drivers left, you have downhill grass and then trees. If you get in the grass, concentrate on getting stopped straight. Many end up in the trees or crash into the barrier because they are trying to get back on track.
The track runs slightly uphill as you exit T10 and on the straight to the midpoint of the pits.
