    As soon as it starts to dry up at all, the grip quickly comes back.
    turn 4 is where I ate shit in the rain

    I haven't even noticed them riding when the track is warm and tires are warm. The center seam gets people, but the fast guys use it to their advantage and bounce of it going in to turns, like turn 8...

    I have never had my bike slide on me because of the road snakes...

    The main straight has an optical illusion.....while nearing the end of the straight, the road starts to go down hill giving the appearance that turn one is closer than it appears.

    If you aren't aware of it, you'll find yourself on the brakes then back on the gas then back on the gas before entering the turn. If you are unsure where you need to be braking, be aware of your brake markers(that's what they are there for). Each lap you can start braking later and later, til you are comfortable with your distance.
