to be verified
Description North Weard airfield hosts many dragster races, of course using a strip as drag strip. But some different events has been organized here that used a circuit: i.e. moleracing.com shows a Formula Vauxhall Lotus on the starting line in March 2004. According to the same site, it is a bumpy airfield that uses an interesting mixture of flat out straights, twisty chicanes and a roundabout followed by a sweeping fast complex of curves to complete the mile long course. The only map I found is on Creative Vinyls shops, but it’s in perspective and low quality. Besides, I tried to fit this map to airfield aerial photo available on Multimap, but with no results. So there is something wrong: I don’t know if the map is wrong, if the circuit was built after aerial photo was taken or if there is any more problem.
