Exceeding

The classic rules of passing to the left on the road do not apply on a circuit, as you probably know. 
When driving on a circuit, it's important to keep your track even when it's on the left side of the road, cars ready double-cross you will know where to drive

At the beginning of the straight line, your gaze must already be at the breaking point.
Before entering a curb you must have a full overview of the curb to be taken. 


Generally speaking, a corner is approached in three stages:
 

  • Corner entry: From the outside, braking with the straightest wheels possible to get good braking power.
     

  • Middle of the turn: From the inside, heading towards the middle to reach the chord point.
     

  • Exit: From the outside to exit the turn while accelerating again.

The Brakes

The circuit is very demanding for your brakes, keep this in mind. 
Before returning to the pits, take an extra turn to cool them down.
When starting from the stand and in the first straight line, check your braking with the left foot to be sure that they respond well.
