The vehicle's handling in extreme cornering situations can be tested on the Handling Courses. To this end, the handling courses are provided with a variety of different curve radii, curve slopes, climbing gradients, and downhill slopes. Sections of the track can also be flooded with water.
There are two handling courses (HC 1 and HC 2). HC 1 is designed for higher-speed driving, and due to the curve radiuses being between 54 m and 100 m it is suitable for all types of vehicle.
The curve radiuses of the HC 2 track are between 17 m and 115 m. In some cases the curves feature an inward or an outward slope. These facts lead to an increase in the degree of difficulty. Sections of the track can also be flooded with water. Pylons can be used to individually mark the length of track to be driven. HC 2 is not suitable for commercial vehicles and buses.
HC 2 also includes a track representing mountain-pass driving. This has the form of hairpin bends with curve radii between 6 m and 15 m, and with a number of different gradients.
