Passengers to be booked on the day
After holding a date on the Gp in September 2018 we are going back a year later, and it is well worth the wait.
We are charging a bit more however we will be operating with less cars than in 2018.
For this reason alone we had put up then price slightly. But of course there is as ever free first class tuition and Photography
provided on the day at no extra cost.
I do hope you can come along and Join us on the fantastic circuit.
The full Grand Prix Circuit begins on the Brabham Straight, an off-camber, slightly curved stretch, before plunging into the right-hander at Paddock Hill Bend.
Despite the difficulty of the curve, due to the straight that precedes it, it is one of the track’s few overtaking spots. The next corner, Druids, is a hairpin bend, negotiated after an uphill braking zone at Hailwood Hill.
The track then curves around the south bank spectator area into the downhill, off-camber Graham Hill Bend, and another, slightly bent stretch at the Cooper Straight, which runs parallel to the pit lane. After the straight, the circuit climbs uphill though the decreasing-radius Surtees turn, before moving onto the back straight where the track’s top speeds can be reached.
The most significant elevation changes on the circuit occur here at Pilgrim’s Drop and Hawthorn Hill, which leads into Hawthorn Bend. The track then loops around the woodland with a series of mid-speed corners, most notably the dip at Westfield and Dingle Dell and the blind Sheene curve.
From there the track then emerges from the left hand and cambered Stirlings Bend onto the short straight to Clearways and rejoins the Indy Circuit for Clark Curve with its uphill off-camber approach to the pit straight and the start/finish line.
