Some major changes have already been made to the track.
The track will start with sprint at the top of the hill Sv. Ivan (St. John) at 256m, and continue on gravel or rocky terrain beside the main road. After a couple of turns it will turn right on the mountain path on the slopes of the Kalvarija hill. This part of the track starts with rough rocky part with mild incline, but soon continues with steeper section. There will be several turns and also some small jumps in the pine tree forest. The surface is mostly rocky or mixture of rocks and dirt. The track then comes to the middle part where it leaves the mountain path and rocky surface and enters the forest park ‘’Podjavori” – the former winter residence of the Habsburg Archduke Charles Stephen.
There are several fast turns, berms and compressions.
After a high speed section, the track crosses main road, where the last part of the track begins with a jump into the narrow street and then continues on towards the finish in the centre of the town Veli Lošinj at 0m.
The track is 1,7km long and it is estimated to be around the 3 minute mark.
