From their website.

At 7.77 kilometres in its maximum configuration, The Bend combines technical corners, fast flowing sections and an aggregate rise and fall of 85 metres to ensure exciting racing and an enjoyable drive. The track design is unique in offering 8 circuit configurations constructed with all forms of motorsport in mind.

Time Attack event was hugely popular while back. Big number of cars and drivers. Many more spectators than anticipated. Graders levelled paddocks while people waited then parked Group I know there competing very happy with facilities.
