Steady rain the night before the race meant it was time to get the extra sets of goggles ready because it was going to be a muddy affair.

It seems like half of the course requires 4th and 5th gear, which makes for somewhat unique conditions when it comes to the normally tighter, slower grand prix circuits, but the track ended up being a ton of fun, as it roughened up well, and made line selection […]
