Its pretty much the same going CCW. The only tricky part is the Diamond's edge. There's a kink to the right. At first you'll want to slow down on the straight and work your way up to a brush of the brakes.

For the sweeper (T9), beginners should late apex. More advanced drivers can kind of creep in from the left edge with a light brush of the brakes. There's camber on the inner half of the track. Then you need to get on the brakes hard into the bus stop.

Gut check is flat out then brake hard into T16. You can run really wide past the rumble strips to scrub off more speed if you want to be safe. Be sure to late apex T17. If you early apex, don't lift. Don't be a hero, just go off the track if you go into a spin. The car will shoot towards the inside of the track...unless you initiate a tank slapper...then who knows.

The only way you'll hit the wall is if you:

a) drive straight into it
b) are being a total jackass
c) try and save it, oscillate down the track
