A short yet fast lap characterises the Symmons Plains layout. The turn four hairpin and left-hander at the end of the back straight are the two best passing opportunities. Brakes are worked very hard with drivers standing on the ‘middle pedal’ hard twice a lap within half a minute of one another. The banking at the hairpin makes for a unique opportunity to line up a good run out of one of the slowest corners on the V8 Supercar calendar.
