Tips For Bolivar Circuit.

At just over 780 metres in length, the fast and technical nature of the circuit requires absolute commitment from a driver while presenting passing opportunities at every corner. Always providing close and exciting racing, spectators are welcomed with whole track visibility from a number of viewing areas around the track.

TURN 1

The Bolivar circuit doesn’t tend to hold a lot of grip, so turn one should be approached with caution until your tyres come up to temperature. Stay on the inside at race start so you can hold the outside on turn two and set up an inside pass into turn three. Pick a braking marker into turn one, say just before the patch of dirt on the right. Be smooth and don’t get crossed up on the way in.

TURN 2

Hug the left curb but don’t run a wheel over it. A quick flick right will pick up revs so do this as early as practical. Ensure to stay off the right curb as this will hurt your run to turn three. Allow the kart to drift naturally to the runoff on the left but ensure not too wide so you can steadily make your way to the very right of the circuit ready for turn three.

3

TURN 3

A tricky and critical corner with no camber as typically found on similar corners. Only a short stab on the brakes is required.

It’s important to get the kart squared up to get maximum drive avoiding getting the kart unsettled on the exit curb as this can result in dirt and marbles on tyres which will effect set up for turn four.

TURN 4

You want to have a clean run through the chicane, keep off the inside curbs as they are very steep and will kick the kart around. Most classes will be near flat out through this section of corners and it is very import to keep the speed and use all of the exit curb through turn five.

5

TURN 5

This important set of corners acts as one of the best passing moves on the track into turn six. So you want to ensure the kart is handling well on high speed corners and not getting any slide.

6

TURN 6

The following corners are the best part of the track in my eyes. The entry to turn six is a great passing opportunity and being late on the brakes is very important.

7

TURN 7

A lot of corner entry speed is ultra-important. Be careful as various lines can be used and it may change over the weekend. This is also another great passing opportunity.

8

TURN 8

Finally, the ultra‐important turn eight and nine. There is a bump on the entry here and your entry line is very important.

9

TURN 9

This corner is very critical to get a good run down the main straight. This I think is also a very difficult corner to get right.
