Comment
A tight left hand corner after long straight. It leads very quickly into another tight left hander, corner 2.
Best treat them as one section.

Entry
BP: Hard breaking - using the pit lane exit lines as a guide

TP: Marshal station on the outside

Apex
Gear: 3rd (600, running lower gearing)

Exit
Use all of the track, aim to get to edge of track at middle of far right kerb.

Comment
One of the few right handers - quite slow: This is the first right hander for over a minute, be aware of
cold tyre on right.

Entry
BP: ?

TP: There is a long thin strip of grass on the left, just before the corner: Use the beginning of this strip as
a guide (might be out of date from video)

Apex
Gear: 2nd

Exit
Corner is initially tight, then opens up relative slowly - power out of corner carefully.

A long left hand corner, so expect to hug the apex for some time. Leads onto a fast section, so focus on
drive from corner.

You will hug the apex for some time - it's a long corner.

Exit
Use all of the track, ready for very fast downhill lefthanders.

Corner 8 - right, 225 degree
18 February 2009
22:49

Comment
VERY long corner, 90 mph.

Entry
BP: ?

TP: Probably not too important, as corner is so long. But grass on left of corner entry becomes bare:
That could make a good marker if it is in the same condition.

Apex
Gear: 3nd

Either hug apex, or on a powerful bike use two apexes.

Exit
Don't use all the track - messes up the next tight left hander.

Comment
Slow S bend. The S bends are too 'deep' to straight line.

Entry
BP: ?

TP: Small white mark near edge of the circuit.

Apex
First of an S - so hit it centrally.
Gear: 2nd

Exit
Don't use all the track - messes up the next corner.

Comment
Slow S bend. The S bends are too 'deep' to straight line.

Entry
BP: No breaking

TP: Just use eyes to judge.

Apex
Gear: 2nd

Last of S-bend, so might be worth cutting in late to get drive to pass slower rider.

Otherwise, aim for dark tarmac repair at apex.

Exit
Okay to use all track.

Comment
Slow corner

Entry
BP: ?

TP: Use fence posts on right as guide - last one before corner has bigger, isolate, bush behind (might be
different now).

Apex
Gear: 3rd

135 degrees - so expect to hug apex for a little while

Exit
Use all of track to be ready for next left hander.

Corner 12 - left, 95 degree

Comment
Slow corner

Entry
BP: ?

TP: The concrete track barriers pincer in towards the circuit - there seems to be a transition in colour
from brown to white - use that.

Apex
Gear: 3rd

Repair strip at apex - aim to get wheels inside it.

Exit
Classic exit - use all track

Comment
Not really a corner - more a kink, leading into a slow corner.

Entry
BP: ?

TP: Not Applicable.

Apex
Gear: 4th gear

Apex isn't as important as being in the right position at exit.

Exit
Exit is really the entry position to the slower corner leading onto the start finish straight, which will be
critical for speed along the straight.

Corner 14 - left, 90 deg
18 February 2009
22:56

Comment
Medium speed corner leading onto long start finish straight.

Entry
Braking Point: Not sure - but uphill, so brake late.

Turn in Point: Aim for the marshal umbrella outside, this is also the turn in point (however, noticed in
other vid's that the marshal moves his location!)

Apex
Gear: 3rd

Aim slightly after middle, to get best drive on to long straight.

Exit
Use all track the track for best drive
