When you go to the joker lap, that’s the fastest speed you have on the track – down to Pilgrims you’re doing around 110-120mph. Normally I brake very late here, and let the car really turn and float a little bit up to Chessons Drift, which is a very tight right-hander.
You have to be very neat before you hit the jump. My personal thing is the more gravel you have, the more chance you can do a big attack to gain time. But you have to be smart when you do it, attacking hard but neat at the right places as well.
Deciding when to joker at Lydden is really dependent on the traffic, and for me the best timing was always the first or the last lap. What is good for the joker there is that you can commit early and carry lots of speed in.
