The corners of this circuit were named in May 2002. Starting at the start/finishing line (going anti-clockwise), the turn names are:-
Chicane
Deene
Yentwood
Pif Paf
Short link
Steel Straight
Graselands
Tarzan (the hairpin)
School Straight
Brook

Note that the historic circuit goes right at the Deene hairpin, going to Kirby corner before rejoining the Steel Straight.

"Link" Circuit

In 2006 a new variant was used, the 1.949 International Super Sports Car circuit. It largely follows the existing international circuit, but uses the reprofiled Bike Link onto Turn 4 to allow the cars the miss the Turn 1 chicane.
