    I was told by the guy that moves pylon locations that there has been 21 changes to the course over the years. As to dates/reasons/distances I do not know. I believe the biggest change was when they added 3% to the length in 2003 in order to make a "More realistic" length. I believe it was to make the breaking of 500mph easier but makes it really difficult to compare speeds from prior with present.

    IIRC the course was originilly about 9.3 or 9.8 miles but due to encroachment it is now down to about 8.2-3 miles (RARA link to length is broken)

    NAG would probably be the best resource as to specific lengths and dates.
