This is the view from the far step-up, looking back toward the rostrum

The Main Straight
The Main Straight

This is the start/finish straight and the fastest part of the track.

The Big Berm
The Big Berm

Located at the end of the main straight, this is a huge feature and allows you to carry a lot of speed.

The Triple
The Triple

Immediately after the berm, can either be done as a triple jump or double then single.

The Step-Up
The Step-Up

The furthest point from the drivers, show this feature respect or you'll be off the back!

The Big Double
The Big Double

This feature comes immediately after a tight 'Z' section, if your car can't accelerate well you won't make this spectacular jump.

The Mini Double
The Mini Double

A quick blip of the throttle should see you safely over this one, but be careful of the 90 degree turn straight after.

The Washboard
The Washboard

Also known as the 'whoops'. This really sorts the men from the boys, the boys will limp over each bump but the men do it as two doubles :-)

The U Bend
The U Bend

Very tight turn back on yourself, can be very slippy in the wet here

The Spine Approach
The Spine Approach

At this corner you need to assess the other cars and decide how to do the spine.

The Spine
The Spine

This is a big feature with two distinct ways of tackling it, either launch of it and land hard, or brake just before the summit, landing quickly on the other side throttling hard.

The Small Berm
The Small Berm

Hit this right and you will end with a perfect line to get apex right on the last step up, do it wrong and you will lose time or worse end up in the car park.

The Mini Step-Up
The Mini Step-Up

If you get this right you can fly, the best can take this with no brakes.

The Bombhole
The Bombhole

You can't plant the loud pedal for the straight until you have negotiated this, be brave here!
