Features, Racing I By Winding Road Staff I August 31, 2016

But simple execution comes from practice and preparation: see Mark’s article on the "Grandmaster" passing strategy for additional ideas about how to set up these passes. And, after making passes like this, do not copy Mark’s missed shift coming out of T4 — apologies to fellow MX-5 Cup driver Nick Bruni who damaged his car when Mark got first gear instead of third.
