YOUR GUIDE TO MASTERING THE BEST OF BRITISH CIRCUITS

DONINGTON PARK

Don’t rush into Redgate.

MASTERCLASS

1 Redgate

Redgate is a really tricky turn to get right. Use the triangle of paint at the pit exit as a braking marker and get the bike as close to it as possible on the approach to the turn (some racers will even cross this paint to open up the first corner, but avoid doing that on a trackday as there will quite often be a bike in there). Go down two or three gears and get the bike settled right down before you turn in. Don’t be tempted to turn in too early, stay out until the pit lane exit ends and then drop the bike on its side. Pull it in to the apex where the gravel path meets the kerb on the inside of the track, it will feel as though it’s too late at first but it will allow you to get on the gas hard down Hollywood, without running out of tarmac.
