Was a well organised event
A hot day but great event
Hot, very well organised
The 1 mile track, 13 times is an interesting proposition. It is slightly mind numbing but at the same time if you were trying to go for setting a benchmark, it's very useful to have the predictability lap on lap.
The track has slight undulations but those little hills become much more significant lap after lap (again, you know they are coming, which is a different mental challenge of its own.)
