“Also known as Hell Corner. Use third gear, important corner to get a good exit to carry the speed up to Mountain Straight. Loads of people go off here."

“Expect to reach speeds up to 140-150mph in the Morgan."

The Cutting
“Also known as Donut King Corner. Blind corner, go down two gears get over to right hand side, and aim for the marshall's post. A lot of time to be made up here."

The Esses and The Dipper
“You have to see this to believe it, it's very hard on the cars, a real diff. braker. Keep to the middle of the corners."

Falken Elbow
“Very quick blind corner, which then drops down. Don’t brake too late here, come out of corner then go hell for leather on to Con-rod Straight. Dickie Johnson went off here into the trees."

Con-rod Straight
“Stay on left hand side. Top gear, 155mph."

Caltex Chase
“Go into corner, put half the car on the white line on the left, take the right hander flat out ... then brake and go down three gears before turning in between billboard and marshal's post, being careful of the steep kerb. A low kerb as you leave Caltex Chase.”

VIP Pet Foods Corner
“Last corner before main straight, use late braking: it is important to get a good exit out of the corner onto pit straight."
