The Docks is a wild 3 laps in 1 race track that allows players to start in in various places.

Configuración para Singapur:

Neumáticos: 9
Frenos: 2
Cambio de marcha: 2
Carrocería: 3
Motor: 2
Suspensión: 2

Circuito claramente de neumáticos blandos, ya que permite una versatilidad estratégica inusitada.
Una configuración un poco menos arriesgada podría ser 7/3/3 en las tres primeras categorías dejando las otras igual. Un coche podría usar una configuración y el otro la otra, pero siempre con neumáticos blandos.
12 curvas, 9 de ellas de 1 parada, 2 de 2 paradas y 1 de 3.
Hay varios puntos clave en esta pista:

1.Tras la primera curva inicial de 2 paradas adelantar hasta 3 casillas (6 ptos. de neumáticos con los blandos) para intentar llegar a la siguiente curva. No hacerlo supone perder un turno de juego.

2.Los 3 ptos. restantes de neumáticos (1 casilla extra con las gomas blandas)deben utilizarse, si fuera necesario, en la curva de 2 paradas. Estas paradas deben hacerse en 4ª y 3ª marcha o en 3ª y 3ª marcha, procurando no pasarla en más de una casilla por los motivos ya comentados.

3. Antes de hacer la curva de 2 paradas hay 2 opciones:
a) Si estás en la casilla más adelantada de la curva anterior, probar a salir en 4ª, pues con neumáticos blandos con un 11 o un 12 llegas a la primera casilla de la curva de 2 paradas. Luego reduces a 3ª para la segunda parada.
b) Si no es el caso anterior, o salir en 4ª o incluso en 5ª si estás muy atrás. Con 5ª puedes llegar a la curva, pero con 4ª te quedarás a medio camino y o sigues en 4ª o reduces a 3ª, pero hay que tener presente que en la primera parada de la curva de 2 paradas no deberías dejar el coche más allá de la 3ª casilla de la trazada más larga (10 casillas); si haces esto, podrás meter 3ª para hacer la segunda parada. En caso contrario, tendrás que reducir a 2ª y perderás opciones.

3. La curva de 3 paradas conviene hacerla en 3ª-3ª-4ª. Para eso conviene utilizar la trazada más larga (18 casillas) y realizar las paradas lo más atrás posible.
De esta manera se llega a la última curva del circuito en 4ª y sales de ella en 5ª.
Pero hay otra posibilidad: si las 3 paradas han sido muy cortas y estás muy atrás en la curva, cabe la posibilidad de que salgas en 5ª marcha para llegar a la última curva del circuito. Únicamente en este caso. De esta manera saldrías en 6ª marcha de la últma curva del circuito, lo que te permitiría incluso adelantar a otros coches en la misma recta de llegada, lo que puede ser muy útil sobretodo en la vuelta final de carrera.


4. La curva final. En la primera vuelta sería fundamental que los coches blancos taponaran a los verdes en la parada de boxes, haciéndoles perder un valioso turno; para conseguirlo, los coches blancos deben salir antes de esa curva.

La parada en boxes es prácticamente obligatoria, a menos que el coche esté muy bien y no sea necesario, aunque con neumáticos blandos si no se para tras la primera vuelta, se pierde en beneficio de +1 movimiento extra, y no conviene la pena perder esa bonificación tan útil en este circuito.

Con neumáticos duros, una buena opción (aunque no tan buena como la anterior) sería:

Neumáticos: 7
Frenos: 3
Cambio de marcha: 3
Carrocería: 3
Motor: 2
Suspensión: 2

Con esta configuración puedes (quizá) ahorrarte la parada en boxes, pero creo que no es algo excesivamente significativo, pues no es seguro que no tengas que hacer la parada.

Configuración para Docks:

Neumáticos blandos, eso está clarisísimo.
Circuito de muchas curvas, casi todas de 1 parada, luego no es necesario gastar muchos puntos en neumáticos.
Sí en frenos y cambio de marcha para poder tener más versatilidad en la estrategia.

Neumáticos: 5
Frenos: 4
Cambio de marcha: 4
Carrocería: 3
Motor: 2
Suspensión: 2

Circuito donde hay que ir al máximo, lo que puede suponer bajar varias marchas de golpe, pero vale la pena.
Por eso tantos puntos en caja de cambio y frenos.

Hay 2 curvas donde gastar los neumáticos:
1. Una curva de 2 paradas donde puede gastarse algún punto de neumático (1/2) para asegurar llegar a la siguiente curva, de parada única.
2. Una curva de 3 paradas donde gastar si es necesario todos los puntos de neumáticos restantes. Una buena opción sería salir de esta curva en 4ª. De esta forma se podría alcanzar la siguiente curva en 5ª.

Again the two tracks: Singapore is quite slow and unexciting, 4th gear max track. But, the Docks is an unconventional, gimmicky, and FUN piece of street racing action! B-)

I've been wanting this for a long time. It's an awesome track that plays wonderfully. Rated 8 for now, but that's only after one 2-player game. I want more plays with more people to really get a feel for it.

I wanted that crazy track "The Docks" and found out that my FLGS had them available.
Wow, hell yeah, I never rolled the 6th geard dice twice in a row until we started at the docks. That is really one hell of a track. Has the feeling of a fun stunt track if you don't want the realistic mode.
Singapore is a cool track as well but, hey it comes with the docks, so it will always be the smaller light of this pack.

The third expansion to Formula D (the new Formula Dé). Two new circuits to race on; Singapore and The Docks. While the Singapore track is a real circuit, the Docks track is a made-up circuit.

The Docks are a great looking circuit, but the rules about what way you go and how many loops counts as a lap are unclear. Would be much better with a better rules sheet.

Singapore track -- 4. Not much back and forth action. Docks track -- 7. Lots of interesting decisions. Plenty of opportunities to use up equipment. Each turn has a completely different feel. Definitely would try that track again.

Great art for this board and the race is fine but not that many difficulties and only few options for strategic moves. A bite long to play and unforgiving, leaders can hardly be caugth.

Docks - 3 (initial rating to be played yet)
This one is not really a circuit with a single race track ; several path could be taken. So it seems that it is missing the core element of the game : the racing head to head fun.

Another excellent set of tracks! The Docks provides an intense and strategically fun track. I found myself standing up the entire game. The normal staggered start exists, but there is also a variant for a straight start with the choice made by each racer as to which loop you take first. In our first game, we chose a 3 lap race with a straight start and players choice as to which loop to take first. The end game was very balanced with some nice surprises. For example, two racers came in with an almost tied finish, off from two separate tracks and a third racer nearly passed the finish line...all in the same turn. Awesome game!
