So this is free practice? Sweet. I would just recommend relooking the line that you are taking. For example, on the first turn, you should be on the outside of the track then turn in and stay along the inside of the turn. Then when you go back to the right, you will have a much higher exit speed.

Uh, not really. Best case scenario, you'll end up in the grass if you take that line on a race track with any kind of speed. Worst case is you go off and slam into a barrier.

Its 35 dollars for the day to run. the line dosent look the same from the angle that the camera is compared to what the car is actually taking. as for the first turn there my car is never going fast enough to make a difference whether i take it on tight or wide since im going at such a slow speed it dosent affect it

it would make a huge difference if you took that first turn and stayed on the left side after the turn, to set you up for the next one where u could exit with the greatest speed onto the little straight. its all about putting you in position to exit the last turn on a set of "linked" turns with the greatest speed possible....anyways looks like its really fun!
