It's on the Abbey corner, which is where I was last year. Happened to be the best corner because it was still wet there while most of the track had dried up. There's a big screen so you can keep track of what's going on. I recommend it, I'll probably be going back to Farm or Abbey this year.

Farm is a great place to sit. When I went I could see all the red hot breaks in the wheels, and the big screen helps you keep track of positions.
