“This corner is pretty simple in a modern car as downforce changes everything. Without downforce your weight management becomes much more important and we’re also on skinny Dunlop tyres in the Jag, so you have to be confident in sliding the car.
“To be fast in historic cars in the main you have to be sliding the car quite a lot, which is very different to modern cars where you don’t want to slide. High-speed braking wants to be done in a straight line, so you approach the corner fast, and you do surprisingly little: it’s just a brush of the brakes down to third to settle the car for an early turn-in. A lot of drivers turn in late, but you tighten the corner by doing that and it’s better to go in early and then run wide through Farm and the brake diagonally back across for Village and into second gear.”
