Cunningham: “Exiting Turn 5, stayon the right side of the road upthe hill to the Corvette Bridge.The braking zone is tricky becauseyou’re braking and cresting the hillat the same time, so you need toease onto the brake before your cargets light. But the turn-in is blind:You need to start turning earlierthan you think, and you need to usevery slow hands to make the radiuspretty. Start your turn-in early, butwith very slow hands so that youcan take a late apex. Most peoplewait to turn in and then never hit theapex or turn-in correctly, but withfast hands so they apex too early.”
Reynolds: “This little short stintup the hill is a huge deal if you havedrivers trying to get inside. Right atthe bridge, or maybe slightly beforeit, tap the brakes a little bit to set upfor Turn 6, which is one of my favoritecorners: It’s blind, and you’re liftingand braking and turning in and tryingto get your marks right, all at once.
“It’s really key here to pickout some markers so you knowwhen to brake and turn in; thenget all the way down to the apex.
I see people turning in too lateall the time; it’s easy to do.”
