There was originally a concrete wall on the edge of the track at the end of the straight. They removed a section when they started running drags to give an escape road. They removed some more wall and stuck in a sand trap. The trees and bushes are a long way from the track, the camera has made it look very short. It was a bit of a blind drop off the circuit into the escape road.
Wow. So, turn sharp left when you get to the end of the straight - but are there any barriers? Is there a run-off area? Yikes.
The turn at the end of the straight is not a hard left, it is a fast kink.
From what I remember this meeting was run on the normal "South" circuit and not the long "GP" circuit. (I may be wrong on this) so the cars would have been turning into the first road on the left.
