Place markers #3 and #4 ahead and several feet to either side of #2. Practice the turns by accelerating through the gears in the straightaway, downshifting at the turns (marker #2), and coming to a smooth stop at #3 or #4.

  • Keep your eyes forward, and look around the turn as you approach #2.
  • Release the throttle before you shift, and keep your foot clear of the shift pedal after you shift.
  • Move your weight forward and lean into the turn.
