Port Road Notes

Prep

  • Use the best rubber you have available. It will make a difference.
  • Watch your videos from the previous event. Figure out where the gear changes are.
  • Check tire pressures. Aim for 32 PSI hot for semi slicks.
  • Turn off windscreen washer taps.

On The Day

  • Don't drive like a dick. You will enjoy the event more if you try for the best time you can possibly do. Don't try and do a massive burn out off the start line. Port road is not the event for fucking around.
  • Don't try and do the first corner in second gear without lifting off unless:
    • The track is dry,
    • You have good rubber on the rears and
    • It is not your first run of the day.

Track Notes

  • Start Lots of revs off the start line. Better to have a bit of tyre spin than bog down the engine.
  • First corner Change into third while buttoning off. Ease the gas on carefully.
  • First barrel You are going faster than you think. Brake a bit early.
  • Ambulance corner Stay in third.
  • Alleyway short shift to third.
  • Alleyway, final exit Button off more than you think you need to. It will set you up for the final corner and is the fastest way through. Brake really hard.
