The original course is still intact. The new course does share parts and both enter the big sweeper (turn #1). When the whole course is in effect the 'competition course' is closed off. So for the purpose of the upcoming event it will be on the original course. I think they set it up this way so the dragstrip and the competition course could be used at the same time.
I'm attaching a picture for reference.
