Yes they were still there, very severe in my opinion. We actually broke the windscreen over one of them. I think the idea of them is to try and slow cars down on the very fast straight bits and would be better if replaced by chicanes. Lots of damage to cars on the day. We were hiting them at over 100mph so not suprising damage occured.
Apart from that twyford wood is an excellent venue and i will be there in new saph soon i hope.

I marshalled there last year at the 2WD stages when they were used for the first time and they were very severe then, the backend off the first car in very nearly went end over end when it landed right on its nose, still smashed the bumper raditor and indicator though.

Agreed not a bad venue though, always seems to rain when we go though
