Diagram for practicing braking in a turn

In the straightaway, speed up into second gear and then downshift as you approach marker #2. After passing marker #2, make the turn and stop as close as you can to marker #3 or #4. When you can stop without skidding, speed up into higher gears in the straightaway.

  • Keep your eyes forward in the straightaway, and look around the turn as you approach marker #2.
  • Before shifting, remember to release the throttle. After shifting, keep your foot away from the shift pedal.
  • Move your weight forward, and lean into the turn.
