EoE Colchester

Report by Colin Parsfield
Round 3 of the EoE took place on Sunday 28th June at CMCC’s Easthorpe venue just off the A12. The track is 100% grass, and despite the appearance in photos of being flat, it was far from this with many natural undulations. From the start line you headed through a quick chicane into a gradual left sweep which dropped away before a tightening left hook which was right on a crest of a bump. After a quick right hairpin, blast along a short straight you spun around to face the monster straight along the back of the circuit.

If you reached the end of the straight an opening left hand bend sent you into a series right left right twists heading back towards the rostrum.
