Above: Damon in the middle of the Abbey chicane: he’s come through the left and is turning into the right. Careful inspection shows that the back end is not obeying and is still coming out of the left-hander, hence the thick black lines of rubber and the steering pointing to the right as he corrects the sideways slide.

Above: Sorry about the wire fence… even from the very top of the banking you can’t always avoid looking through it.
