Good to know
Tucked away in a forest with a house in the centre, Folembray is not a typical circuit. On first glance at the circuit layout, it looks very ordinary, but it is actually a very exciting drive.
The circuit has a great mix of four fast sweepers and 2 great hairpins that entertains the novice and still offers thrills for the experienced.
A lap of Folembray starts with an uphill climb, passing the pits on your right hand side. There is a fast left/right sweeper, leading into a tighter but still very fast right/left kink. On the exit of these flowing corners, you are at the highest point of the circuit.
The first sweeper is relatively easy and you have a chance to enjoy the scenery. The second kink is slightly trickery. For a start, you are aiming for a house at 100+ mph and its downhill, with high kerbs to thread between. After this is the quickest part of the circuit as it continues downhill. At the bottom of the hill you have 2 right hand turns that bring you back on to the start/finish straight.
