This is one of the great road racing tracks in the world. It is a high speed track.
RA is a very fast track with several "gotchas" for the unprepared. However, it has very large run-offs with deep gravel in most areas, so mistakes tend to be more embarrassing than anything.
The track is very hard on brakes with 5 significant braking points per lap. A couple braking points are downhill and require scrubbing about 100mph in more powerful cars. Make sure your brakes work, have fresh high temperature brake fluid and racing brake pads. It is recommended you bring a second set of pads with you.
The kink is a wild corner and you should be cautious there as any mistake will probably lead to a serious crash and at least the loss of your car. The kink has walls on both sides and no run off for the brave.
