  • Big willow critique

    I did big willow for the first time in a rwd car. The lap provided is from the 1st session of the day but it also turned out to also be my ftd. I dont have any data overlay or tire pyrometer readings but any help with the lines will be greatly appreciated! Flame suit on.

    1: missed apex, but good use of the tire's potential otherwise. Track out even if you don't need to.
    2a: you can probably scare yourself on entry a little more
    2b: track out even if you don't need to
    3: turnin is way early, downshift ugly, all wrong, but hey the exit turned out ok-ish
    4b: you generally want to apply the gas just once, but I like that you're playing around at the limit of adhesion.
    5: loose on entry probably isn't gonna get you a fast lap time. The braking and downshift could use tidying up. You need to be FLUNG to the outside of 5 and wondering if you'll stay on asphalt.
    6, 7, 8 not corners. You may be able to brave the bumps on the inside of 8, I think the resurfacing may have cleaned those up some.
    9 not bad, but you can probably turn in earlier and scare yourself more on entry, middle, and exit.
