Braking in a Turn
Place markers #3 and #4 ahead and about 40 feet to either side of marker #2, as shown in the diagram.
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.
