Tonfanau race circuit is one mile in length, with a width of 22' 6'' and is run in a clock-wise direction. From the start line there is a short straight followed by a very fast sweeping right hander. This leads into a long, fast up-hill section with a steady left into a very tight hairpin bend. From the hairpin exit there is a slight left leading on to 'farm straight' – the highest point of the circuit. This leads into a continuous right that consists of three apexes, followed by a long downhill straight. This brings us to the last corner on the circuit 'paddock bend'. This is a slow 30 mph bend that proves very popular with the spectators because of the elevated viewing area. After approximately 100 yards you are returned to the start line. It's a spectacular circuit to cmpete in or just spectate.
