Difficult one as my engine was having fuel injector problems and only on 3 cylinders. I think it would be lower as the straights have less ultimate lenght and the last "straight" before the finish has big sweeping curves which could be the limiting factor of speed. Someone else who has been to both might be able to answer better. I don't think you would have a problem though.

If it's the full track, my terminal speed is similar on the full straight at 3 sisters as I approach the chicane on the back straight at Blyton.

The speed is a lot higher exiting the twisty section to the right hander towards the pits.

Easily the best bit of the track. If you get it right, you'll be quick, wrong, and you'll have to lift a lot on the last corner, which spoils your fun (and your ultimate speed)

Highly recommended. I went in December and the Focus expired half way through the day

I'm glad I'm entertaining

Normally, I'm just irritating.

The small track is so small, you'd almost be finished before you started

But Yes, it's the full track or 95% of it.
