The Long Final model area is part of the Forest Qualification area and borders the Long Final competition area to the southwest. The terrain is highly relevant for the Long Final race. The ground is hard and is dominated by oak with some open areas and bushes. The terrain is moderately to very hilly, with the steeper parts more relevant to the longer courses in the Long Final race. Runnability is good in the open areas, while somewhat reduced in the forest. There is some undergrowth. There is an average network of tracks and roads in the area. There are very few water features in the area. There are some rock formations mostly in the forested areas, but there will be more stones in the Long Final competition area.
16 controls are placed in the area. They can be visited in any order and without time control. The controls don’t have SPORTident equipment. The model event represents the Long Final area, map and control placement.
