    It would be interesting to know which corners needed improvements. IMO C1/C2 have practically ZERO runoff and these are corners that are taken at very high speeds. Anything going wrong braking into C1/C2 will almost definitely result in a big crash...especially on Superbikes. Like-wise C12 (last corner) has very little runoff at the exit and there are some metal rods sticking out of the ground all around the track as well.

    That is one nightmarish scenario. Especially since speeds on that corner are in triple digits.

    Plus, they need to cut the damn grass and get rid of all the wildlife in the track. One would think it's a reserve for pigs and snakes..
