CHESSONS

Turn 1

Autosport (UK) - - LYDDEN HILL TRACK GUIDE -

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.
