How did they want you guys to take the hairpin at the end of the front straight? Double apex or single? Looks like you were doing a little both? The CCA had us going WAY out toward the end of the straight, then turning in for a single apex.

Yea I was black flagged for sound (the sound booth is between 5-6) in the early sessions so I had to upshift somewhere in the middle and downshift again right before 6.

I mostly single apexed as everyone has told me that's the line for the fastest lap. I noticed when I was right behind cars that were double-apexing, I'd gain on them pretty quickly on the following straight.
