I reckon that would be as good a spot as any, it's just by that kink in the back straight isn't it.

Yep, that's the corner you get airborne if you hit the inside curb just right.

I'm there on Sunday so will come over for a catchup.

With the BBQ And gazebo, just bring a deck chair and something to cook. :burnout:
From that spot you get a good view of the infield esses aswell as pothole which is always exciting :P

Pothole is the tits! Always a good bit of fun through there!!!
I hit the inner curblike thing at pothole with my knee in 3rd gear flat out at limiter (157km!) which smacked my foot into the peg which again forced the tyre past the edge of grip, sat it up, dipped in again in roughly a flippin half second..... but too little too late, it was either hit the tyre wall at speed or throw it side down........ stacked at 140km ish. slid ages on my head and neck, feet airbourne.
After a moment of recouperation and a long push back to the pits i only lost a second a lap! (shifting with my clutch hand down the straight as shifter was snapped!)
