I've heard that they're looking to improve overtaking at Brands by changing the profile of Graham Hill bend so i think it's valid although i'm not sure whether it'll look like that!

The link won't load, but if it's what I think it is, then I can say it's certainly not a piece of track design I look favourably upon (and I am a bit of a track design nerd).

As John Cleland said about the new first turn at Oschersleben: ''Whoever designed that corner should be taken into a dark room and beaten''

It's a different version to the one you're talking about

That's going to end up being a hugely banked corner as it basically heads right back up the hill.
I can't see it happening, they've already reprofiled Graham Hill once already (1998?) to improve possibilities for overtaking there. It'll ruin the flow of that back section and slow the approach to Surtees ALOT. Not a fan Sad

That's exactly the one I was talking about Nick. It's a very poor piece of track design.

Aah right, i'd seen designs to make a little chicane just after the exit of Graham Hill bend which would have made it a lot like Oscherslaben
