What the drivers think -
The old Forest Edge circuit was a high speed and flowing circuit. Barton Stacey continued the theme with the new track that is both technically challenging and hugely enjoyable to drive. It is definitely one of the top tracks in the UK.
Good mid range power is needed at Forest Edge. The range of medium - full speed corners is high and with decent straights Top Speed is also key.
With off camber corners and a range of curb sizes, it will take time to get a consistent pace. Concentrating on carrying speed through the medium speed corners will ensure revs do not drop too far and speed onto the circuits straights is maintained.
