Historical Results

Location : Curborough Sprint Circuit,  Wood End lane, Lichfield, WS13 8NF

The spiritual home of the Lotus Seven Club Speed Championship. It’s technical, fast and very exciting. Despite the fact that we visit this venue twice a year and many competitors also hire it for additional practice, the perfect lap always seems to be just out of reach! There is normally a large turnout of spectators who come to enjoy the almost uninterrupted view of the track and a great day out.

Remember the turn in at flagpole after Paddock bend on the first lap now has a penalty cone, make sure you don’t ruin your run by sending it flying.

Description

Start

Stay calm there is plenty of time. One car on track at a time!

Paddock Bend

This is a quick corner with far less run off than you may think.  I consider this the most challenging and toughest corner all year!  Try not to take the last cone out but get close.  Remember COLD TYRES! Watch the cone on the apex into woodside on the first lap as this carries a time penalty.

Woodside

Keep calm but try not to back off to much there is time to be had here.

Molehill

Now we get to the technical bit.  My tip - stay to the right on the kink before hand and brake in a straight line deep into the left hand kerb.  Stay up on the hill and use it to turn the car - early on the power and head for Fradley.

Fradley

There are a couple of lines around this corner some more traditional than others. I brake late to the outside turn and get on the power early. Others sweep around in more of an arc.

Flagpole

Brake late and deep. Try and turn the car before the apex so you can be on the power before you get there.  You won’t get on the power otherwise for another 30m.
