  • Peter Baldwin:

    "When I used to go to this track in the 70's I could never understand why they made it so narrow. I believe it was originally an athletics track and the width of the first and second bends seemed to remain virtually the same. The only place where passing was really possible was on the crown of the third and fourth bend, as Graham Jones and Tom Owen often showed. How pleased I was to learn that in 1996 (or 97) they actually widened the bends, unfortunately the entrances and exits to the bends are still too narrow which makes the racing too processional. Still it's better than it was in the early days. "
