Proper racing technique as you approach a turn would be to 1. Scan ahead, look for turn, apex and exit if possible 2. Brake and Shift 3. bleed Off the brakes 4. Turn-in 5. Clip the apex 6. squeeze back onto the throttle....
It was on part of the oval that I needed to upshift. I understand not wanting to shift on a full turn. But I was accelerating though gears on the oval and would have to let go of the wheel to shift into the next gear since my right hand wasn't at the 9 position.
