Historical Results

Location - Gurston Farm, Broad Chalke, Salisbury, SP5 5HR

 

Start    
The start is a fast, long, downhill blast along Park Straight, so good technique off the line is particularly important. 

Hollow Bend    
A very deceptive, but quick left hand bend. When confident, should be attempted with a short lift, rather than braking

Karousel Corner    
Brake hard for a tight right hander, steep uphill rise, followed by a right hairpin. The steep gradient scrubs off additional speed between sections.

Deers Leap    
Still climbing, a short straight links Karousel and Ashes. You will be accelerating hard in a low gear from the hairpin exit, so keep it straight as the car will go light before you enter the next braking area.

Ashes Corner    
A 90 degree left hander, exit speed is critical before the long drag to the finish.

Finish    
Although flat out, the final straight - Burkes Rise - curves towards the end so a correct line is needed. There is plenty of room for slowing down before entering the top paddock. You must have all 4 wheels inside the white lines either side of the track as you cross the line.
