The artificial grass on the exit of Turns 1, 3, 10, 13 and 15 has been replaced by a more hard-wearing product. ’Sausage’ kerbs have been installed at the apex of Turns 4, 5, 9, 11, 13 and 14. The verge behind the kerb at the apex of Turn 8 has been laid with concrete. The entire verge between the track and the asphalt run-off area around the outside of Turn 11 has been laid with asphalt. The verge at the exit of Turn 13 has been extended with asphalt.
