Nice! My fave track (well close with Cadwell haha) am there Friday and Saturday.

Have a great day, if your in fast will be full of folk getting in practice for the weekend.

Shell you can go round way faster than you think. Down into cascades is a little square of tarmac in middle of track, want to be over the corner of that when tipping in.
Druids is a git to get right.

Well I come out the other end... lol

I’m not sure who grades the groups, but I was in Novice and people where wheeling past me...

Anyway, I found shell a good corner.. catch it rite and you can sling shot out of the bend..

But found the track really good fun.. but can imagine it could also trip you up..

Thanks for all the advice cheers

Glad you had a good day 👍
Lovely track isn’t it. Clay hill and last bend onto start finish straight my faves.
Pre race meet groups are always a bit suspect.

That’s the one you pinch the left hand barrier over a brow into a small blind corner? Loved it..

Unfortunately we don't get to use the best corner of the track any more - Knickerbrook, a proper balls-out fast right kink before driving up Clay Hill. There were issues with the amount of run-off available, which they couldn't extend due to not owning the land behind it, so in the true British style of doing the crappiest and cheapest fix, they defiled it with a chicane. And if that wasn't bad enough, they added insult to injury by naming it after Steve Hislop, one of the cleanest and fastest guys of his time, a guy who loathed the stop-start nature inflicted by these abominations.
