ROAD CONDITION AND FEATURES

Fantastic sliding pavement for any speed or discipline.  The length of the road is buttery smooth, with a few waves in the last corner to mix things up in the lead up to the final straight. An inclined start-line sets you up for the first lefty, it will be tight here but sliding isn’t necessary. Following this is a dropping straightway with a slight left leading into a huge right hand corner which can be ridden in a multitude of ways, no one’s certain which is the fastest.  Out of the big right you’re shot into a long straight that chucks you into an equally big left, however unlike the right, the left isn’t quite a switchback.  It throws you into the ever steepening right-left chicane which sets you up for the final straight away. The final straight is short but is decided by how you take the proceeding chicanes, not mass.
