Sand on the surface of the circuit will be part of the issue and the new surface will also be playing a part, but early indications suggest the circuit is going to torture tyres. Herfoss: I just joked with the guys I’m glad Deon (Deon Coote, Penrite Honda Team owner),  is flying in a bit late today, as there’s a few tyres going in the bike… We’ve really got no choice. With 35 corners span over 7.7 km, The Bend is the second-longest permanent circuit in the world, and in my opinion, one of the most fun to drive!

Troy Herfoss: Many thoughts, we’re going to race here in a couple of weeks, but for what you guys want to know, I haven’t raced everywhere around the world where it has a mixture of everything like this. It was just a lot of fun that first session, and I wanted to give Clarky something to do, but I was too busy having fun out there sliding around, enjoying a new track. Saturday, September 12, 2020. Trev: Talking about sliding around, everyone is toasting tyres here this morning, so we might see half a season’s tyre budget gone in a couple of days…. It is early days yet, but even at what are the modest speeds the riders are running now, compared to what the true race pace will be, tyres are degrading massively. Of course, most teams have not even touched a clicker or changed a spring today, that might come later this afternoon, this morning was just for riders to get their heads around which way the circuit goes, and to start nutting out the fast way around the very testing 18-turn lay-out. This brand new facility is situated just outside of Tailem Bend, a little over an hour East of Adelaide, near the junctions of the Dukes Highway and Mallee Highway. Clearly the NextGen squad have got something worked out here very early on in the piece. It even contains a section that closely resembles the Maggotts – Becketts section of Silverstone! However, in the second session the honour of the first sub two-minute lap around The Bend Motorsport Park went to his young teammate Ted Collins!

It’s like a reverse Sachsenring down to the right there too.

Scott McLaughlin holds the lap record for a Supercars (Ford Mustang) in 1.47.495 August 2019. The highlight must be the second sector, starting from T9 to T29 (yes, you read right, a single sector with 20 corners ). We’re going to be 10-seconds off at the moment, so there’s no reason to waste new tyres.”. First Time around the Bend for ASBK - The Bend Motorsport Park onboard footage - Tailem Bend Track Map and corner speeds - Times from opening two sessions. That first sector of turns two and three remind me of a slower Silverstone, coming up into that first hairpin in turn six and it’s sort of a bit like Valencia, when you come flying around the fast left hander and brake heavily in there. Adelaide’s power supply, courtesy of Melbourne, and the brunt of oh so many jokes, goes right over the top of The Bend …

I then sat down with Penrite Honda Team Manager Shaun Clarke to look at the data trace and worked out a very rough initial guide to the corner speeds around The Bend. It is an hour's drive from Adelaide, straight down the South Eastern Freeway, where the nearest international airport can be found. After the opening two sessions though it is Ecstar Suzuki’s Josh Waters atop the timesheets. As you can’t throw money away just to learn the new race track.
