is a 500m demanding, safe, undulating outdoor circuit
|Turn 1. A fast physical
right handed corner in dry conditions, a true tester of driver
control, skill and patience in the damp/wet. A good exit from
this corner and you will carry speed onto the main straight
creating overtaking opportunities.
|Turn 2. Picture taken
looking back at Turn 2. If you have carried your speed
through Turn 1 then Turn 2 is a simple right handed kink onto
the main straight. If you didn't exit Turn 1 with speed then
this is were you will start to lose out and be prepared to be
overtaken on the straight. In damp/wet condition the kart can
step out a little testing your skills and reactions.
The Main Straight. This
is where you get up to some real speed. Overtaking is possible
thanks to good corner exiting speed beforehand. In the middle of
the straight you have a right handed kink heading towards the
top corner (Turn 3). Stay on the racing line and you really feel
the sensation of speed as you clip the apex. Then get ready for
the legendary "G-Force Top Corner".
|Turn 3. Legendary !!
This corner has it all apart from the kitchen sink. From the
flat out straightaway into a hairpin right, downhill, adverse
cambered corner. This is one of the corners that can make or
break your lap. There is no in between.... you either get it
right or wrong. To really appreciate and respect Turn 3 you have
to drive it yourself.
|Turn 4. With speed
carried from exiting the downhill Turn 3, you enter this left
handed kink in a flash. Clip the apex but not the curb for the
best line. In damp/wet conditions this corner catches many out.
Enter too fast and you will understeer.
|Turn 5. The second of
the "make or break" corners. A sharp left hand hairpin bend that
drives you insane. The biggest mistake made is entering too
fast. Enter too slow and you will be taken by the chasing pack,
Too fast.. you slide wide, lose momentum and your place. In
damp/wet conditions Turn 5 is the most demanding corner...how to
keep the kart pointing straight and when to get on the power for
the exit is critical.
|Turn 6. Don't be fooled
by Turn 6. A good exit from Turn 5 is a must to carry speed
through what seems like a never ending right handed bend. Get
your line right to carry speed, have a good exit towards the
start finish line and back into Turn 1. If you fail on Turn 6
then your speed is compromised into Turn 1 which lead to a poor
Turn 2 and Main Straight. Getting this corner right can
contribute to a great lap time.
