Good UK track for viewing. Pretty much any position around it gives you a good view of the action. With the track being relatively short you see more laps and the riders come past more often. Also with the new rain shelters you can dive for cover when the inevitable shower comes.
Had great fun karting, despite doing so in a blizzard! Lots of drifting, spinouts and competitiveness. Would definitely recommend.
