Hey, I'll say the Chicane is the worst feature at any track. Yeah, there are some walls (with airfence, btw) but the asphalt is good (except the aforementioned corner).
Where else do you get all asphalt pitting, free shaded, covered pits, free electricity, free compressed air outlets, FM transmitter of race calls, air conditioned meeting room, TV's with weather radar, and grandstands from which you can see the entire race? Showers are across the street and it is a race track, not a camping area, so to moan about the noise from the drag strip is comical.
I don't like the chicane any more than the next person, but to rip the entire track when many of its features are the best just doesn't make sense???
