Went in 2004 & it's really good not Portimao great but good - 1km straight! - bit of everything really - rained a lot as I remember - roads washed away in Malaga..............

& it's been resurfaced since then as well - paddock is basic but then I'm spoilt with Brands, Portimao, Jerez etc - facilities wise feels a bit Mallory but in a good way

I would go there again on a circa 400 trip to Almeria but if I was spending 600+ I'd go to Portimao, Jerez etc etc

Used a lot for testing - but you already knew that didn't you :-)

I went there in 2005 with the CSS and it's great. It's got a real mix of everything with blind entry, off camber, fast and technical, a 1km straight. I had a ball there on my DD bike doing my levels 3 and 4 as a student. I reckon you'll really get into that circuit WJB.

We went to the circuit on the afternoon before our school to check out the circuit and Dunlop were there testing tyres with some old ex-GP racer whose name I can't remember. As he was coming onto the start finish straight you could heard what sounded like the clutch slipping. That was until you saw the smoke steaming off the rear tyre and realised he was controlling the rear spinning up on the throttle! Awesome to watch.
