By very quick you mean 200kph max right?

Yeah 200, but there's a nasty bump about halfway down on the left. I think they might put a chicane in there.

Breaking point is just past the MMS driveway cutting the right 6 into a right 3minus.

Yes. Looks like a goer. Road closure looks official.

Actually, there's a chicane in there now.

Doesn't make much difference as it's right near the end.

The chicane is there for safety; to slow you down for a higher risk, slower sharper corner at the end.

I struggle to understand why there is such opposition to a well organised, once a year event in an area that could well provide a great boost to the local economy?
Thank god for Manjimup/Pemberton...but unfortunately over 3 hrs from Perth...
