A description of the private road section of the course (not open for access
until race day):

"The private road is in good condition; once you make a left turn from the MotorSport
Park it is a long easy climb for about 1km, the road then bends right then left
down a hill. There is a turn cone 50m before the T intersection. As you return
it is a steady climb before a long downhill run into the Park. As with the way
out there are two sharp corners to negotiate before entering the back straight
of the race track."
