Clearly, they bought a job lot of bus-stops a few years ago, and they won't stop installing them until the whole circuit is a slalom!

Sorry Pete.

It wasnt aimed at you

Will be good to see how everyone copes with this bit of the track now, if they have not resurfaced the bumps round Gerrerds you might be better off getting a Supermoto to get on a decent line

Looks like a smaller version of the final chicane at sugo .

Just my opinion, but chicanes are always crap - every one of them, but as WJB says, how the hell are you supposed to stop for that??? There are going to be lot of washed out front ends! And this is meant to be safer

And, they will be spoiling one of the best viewing places in the UK - watching the quick lads coming out of Gerards is (was) awesome.

it does look as if edweena's now got a sister!!! looking at the photo, the only safe way round, is to be entering another edweena's type right left, then back onto the straight, otherwise there's no way round without the risk of an off in a big way......

I dont mean to be insultive, but does 'back of fag packet' ring a bell?

I hope it turns out well, bit like a painting 'looks crap untils its done'.

Well they have either ruined one of the nicest corners in the UK or created one of the best flip flop chicanes ever.

Proof of the pudding an all that ?

Hope they take the old circuit section out where the new bit crosses the old or there could be some interesting surface changes going on mid chicane :O

Will have to give it a go though this year and try to get there when its dry!
