beware of the two "S" chicanes :). I quite like the 2nd one, it seems to dip down a bit on the apex coming out of it before rising again. Go fast enough and its possible to have a good fishtail up the short straight (while still using full throttle).
Take care of your brakes. Get braking done before entering the corners.
Generally be careful. There isnt a lot of run-off. The corner at the end of the long pit straight seems a common place for car damaging accidents. If you really want to push the car to its limit (and risk a spin) do it in the hairpins, the 2nd one preferably.
I`m no expert though and have only been on the track a few times myself. I did 5 parade laps to start with to learn the circuit. You can still have some fun on the parade laps if you slow down to build a bit of a gap in front of you.
Have fun, it is a fun. When ive watched before I thought the track looked boring until I had a go myself.
Oh and wave at the totty in the crowds :)
I take it you've been there before then?
