Talking Best Track Session Yet at the Glen!

Gents,

Today I had two of my best sessions at the Glen, and I owe much of it to my instructor. He helped me get on the power quicker as I saw apexes through corners, and gave me some tips on progressive braking to settle the car as I entered corners, which made me much quicker through them as well.

I also kept my tire pressures around 34 psi (stock PS2s) all around, which helped keep the car stable right through the session.

I really need to work on my heel and toe downshifting. I am comfortable in medium braking corners but hard breaking corners such as the first right hander out of the pits, shifting down from 5th to 4th, I tend to stay on the clutch too long which unsettles the car.

I would appreciate any tips that can help me further improve tomorrow.

Thank you.
