Thanks! Except for the last lap, where I almost spun. This was my second session going this direction. Yes, and catching faster drivers as well.

One tip if you drive clockwise again through the carousel. That "turn" is crowned, so if you can stay closer to the inside you get a bit more camber and can carry some more speed. You'll notice two yellow spots on the inside. I have seen good drivers actually touch both. I can't hit the first one, but if I am touching and parallel to the second one then I can roll into the gas a bit more agressively. Otherwise, I have to limit my throttle to stay on track and keep back from kicking out. From there, I am trying to use as much throttle to push me to the outside so that I can set up to come parallel back into the inside of the end of the carousel to set up for mid apex turn 1.

Thanks Denis! Funny you mention that, because I wanted to try the inside line after watching others taking that line last week (CCW). My instructor from TDE wanted me to take middle line, believing there was more grip there. If the inside has a slight camber, then what you say makes sense. I will definately try the inside line next time in either direction.
