Overall opinion of the circuit was positive, though criticism was levied at the lack of grip in Turns 1 through 4, and the proximity to the racing line of the outside wall along the long start/finish straight. Regarding the latter issue, Kawasaki test rider and 2000 250cc World Champion Olivier Jacque said, "I'm only 1 meter from the wall, so you really appreciate the speed." Added FIM Safety Director Claude Danis, "Everything was according to what we decided on my last inspection. Of course, there are small adjustments to be done." According to IMS, those adjustments include more artificial turf near Turns 1 and 16, installation of curbing, final sod work, additional roadcourse striping and removal of some oval striping.
