Twice I tried 5th but I felt I lost something with the shift so I just stayed in fourth and really rode the redline. I glanced down a couple of times and the digital speedo read 215.

I felt like I wasn't carrying enough speed out of the carousel. I think a few more times around I could exit that last corner cleaner and I will be switching into fifth and hitting higher speeds on the front straight.
