Built as an Indy-style oval, with an infield track grafted on as an afterthought, join Niall Mackenzie for a lap of the east midlands track
You’ll approach turn four in 3rd gear but will also be accelerating all the way through using all the track on the exit before peeling right into turn five. I might not be revving out in all the gears, but I shift to 4th gear to settle the bike over this rapid bumpy section then wind the throttle on as I straighten up and get to the edge of the track ready for some hard braking into turn six.
This 90-degree right is the slowest corner on the track and will normally be 1st gear. But get your bike upright and off the edge of the tyre as I’ve seen some classic highsides out of this one. You’ll be into 2nd gear as you head up the rise to exactly where you want a nice late apex to keep you tight to the right on the exit.
