Race start:
It is always good to be ahead and on the front lines but on this circuit it won't have any extra impact driving the first curve, any position will do.

Focus 1:
The first S of Beckett Corner (3 stops, 22-15) has to be driven carefully to exit in 5th gear if possible but an exit in 4th is not that dramatic. The 19 space long straight line right after can be challenging as 2 twice 4th gear is often too short (41% of success) and one 4th and one 5th could overshoot.

Focus 2 :
In the Club Corner (2 stops, 13-6) an early entry can allow an exit in 5th of 6th bringing a significant lead. This is an excellent area to attack but it will probably cost some tires or some gas according to when you want to gear up in 6th.

Focus 3 :
Here in Luttfield (3 stops, 23-13) an early entry allows to gear up early and it could pay off in the long straight of the stand that could be crossed in a single 6th gear without any bad consequences in the next corner.
If you don't have to absolutely stop at the stands, this straight is a good place to attempt an attack. You can always head for the pits if the rolls are not good for a cross in one roll.

Focus 4:
Copse corner (1 stop, 7-3) can be crossed in high gear, 5th or 6th ,to attempt crossing the next straight in one move. It will just require some gas for the brutal slow down for Beckett Corner (3 stops, 22-15).
