From 1982. I think that may have been posted before. That hairpin was early in lap, somewhere around turns 4-6 and only lasted year one of the race, being replaced by a 90 degree left hander from 1983 onward.

No, they were just five years late for David Purley.

just imagine the look on the faces of the drivers when they see it :cool:

At just over 3 km, the race would be 99 laps!
