This is a great track for beginners as well as advanced drivers. It's a low speed track with complex corners, lots of runoff and very few hard objects for you to hit when you make a mistake. Turn 11 is really the only corner where you can hit something solid although the main straight has a wall on the outside also if you puncture etc.

When it rains, this track is a track where you want to stay on the track. The track is basically built on a corn field and the ground around the track becomes a swamp in the rain. If you go off then you'll likely be up to your wheel arches in mud and the interior of your car will also be covered in mud. If you go off then stay off, coming back on will only bring the mud on the track and that means an hour track shutdown while they clean it off.
