Revel in the delights of Anglesey, Wales’ best, and quite possibly Britain’s best track. Niall Mackenzie is happy to take you round
The second gear left/right section of Rocket comes up megafast and it also turns back on itself – so the best of us all run wide here at some point. Hard, hard braking while you’re upright is the key and then turn in early staying tight to the left. Then get ready for a quick change of direction before the nice sweep into the downhill horseshoe right.
You should then hug this kerb, gradually building some corner-speed but only giving full gas when you’re almost upright and have spotted an exit point out on the left. I get third gear along this short blast then back to second using some engine braking as I make use of all the track on the left into the Peel right-hander. This is a long bend exiting over a crest but it is best to use only 50% of the tarmac on the exit as you need to swing back to the right for the downhill run into the left of Seamans.
The Welsh version of the Corkscrew is in the next session
