When approaching a 1st gear corner, I'm in 3rd gear rushing down the
straight with the corner ahead of me.
I find I can improve my time if I
keep in 3rd and keep accelerating for as long as possible. Shortly
before the corner, I'll brake and simultaneously blip and downshift 2 gears basically
missing 2nd gear all together. I don't have a slipper so it gets a little jumpy at the
back but I can reduce that with a little bit more practice.
Is this good
practice or should I be downshifting from 3rd into 2nd and then into 1st
sequentially? I'm pretty sure staying in 3rd and missing 2nd on
the downshift down to 1st gear improves the time as your on the gas for
longer on the straight but wanted to check in with those "in the know".
