    As title, what a great track, that's the first time I've been since they extended it, and what a great job they have done.
    I'd recommend it to anyone

    IT's just the place that's millions of miles from me and millions of miles of horrific roads.... i can't see me riding there.

    The 300?

    I like it, mostly, but hate Brundle, the BSB guys make it look easy and on the circuit map it looks just like any other corner, but irl it really twists my melon.... oh and I once fell off at Murry's because I'm an idiot.

    Brundle is important and best to back off a little. Then you get better drive out. I pass loads on the exit as folk in too hot

    It's so very very easy to go in hot.

    I found if I stayed really wide I could square it off and get good drive out, but it was a rubbish line if anyone got up the inside on the traditional line, because you were cutting back across the track right through them.

    <140 miles, dual carriageway and motorway the entire way (from Reading).

    Yet you happily do 170 miles to Pembrey?

    I struggle with palmer, my mate pulled away from me through there every lap, I just couldn't get it right all day.
    Overtook loads going into the bomb hole, couldn't work out why they were so steady into there.
    Had quite a moment at the end of coram when it shook its head and my right hand came off the bars, my arse gripped th seat tight and kept me on!

    It's a late entry and apex is a bit later than obvious. Go in wide and just let the bike glide (with loose arms) and let the bike run wide on the exit
