I do agree with him on a lot of points, you leave a lot of unused track and could get even faster there. Wish I could have ridden with you!! Stupid stupid clutch issues...kept me off track. Next time I'll make you give me a point by!!
I was bummed you couldn't challenge me buddy! guess we have wait until next year for that point by (ehem, not going to happen)

Another thing PixelBlue... When you shift from 5th to 3rd going into turn one... I kind of cringe bc sooner or later your gonna do the "money shift" and go from 5th to 1st gear!
thanks David! all good advice! there's still room for improvement. I agree downshifting into 3 is a better way to take T3 however I don't like to veer left before taking T1. I think the hard transition unsettles the car a bit. the car is definitely capable shaving off a 2 more sec if the electronics stop interfering. I was down on power most of the day
