@gally,

are you referring to the following?

“It's not just a straight line and then a simple 90-degree corner, then another straight line and another simple corner. We put sections of track that really lock themselves together, so you have to be really good and technically correct. There are also some fairly high-speed corners, high-speed exits and of course a long back straightaway with real hard braking at the end.” - 1993 world champion Kevin Schwantz describing the layout to Crash.net back in April 2011.

I believe he was referring to the fact that Kevin was involved with the design of the track and was the original promoter of MotoGP at the track. Then CoTA screwed him out of the promoter deal. They even went so far as to kick him out of the track during the test session and ban him from the track.
