By no means am i a pro or even really an intermediate driver, but feel free to comment good or bad. I will happily take on any criticism. I think the main problem i have is not letting the car flow through the corners and tend to try and hug the corner too tight on exiting which causes tyre squeal and loss of speed. I could probably turn in a little later too.

Your first dry lap was a BTG of 11.18 and you were a little cautious (and rightly so!)

Your last Video was a BTG of 10.05 which is a good time, and you wer far smoother and hit moe kerbs, but when you have the full width..Use it, just let the car carry its speed rather than fight it.

The Nurburgring might not be the place to try it but will make a big difference next time you go.

Knowledge and confidence and the ability to piece sections of corners together is the best way.

I liked My wet lap ,It was actually raining all the way round and I managed a time of 11.40 but it was smooth and consistant and taught me a lot

and after 15 laps all withn the roof down in a lowly 130 BHP MX5 i got to 10.03 with no drama.

You should be able to knock another 20 second off your time with a few more laps.
