The course itself is very demanding, from the slightly uphill start, a full blast up to 110 mph [in a Gould] under the footbridge to a sweeping left hand turn and onto the long 180 degree right hander at Ettore’s.

Then it’s down-hill and up-hill to the famous Pardon Hairpin, a climbing left hander that then leads into The Esses followed by a tight left hander up to ‘Semi-circle, a long right hander which you approach looking at only the sky! Then onto the finish, and unlike most other venues, back to the paddock via the return road.
