After a fast launch, the course goes into a sweeper then the switchbacks start.
Although our car is fast and nimble out of the tight turns, it is no match for the AWD 1000 hp Plaids when it comes to point and shoot from turn to turn.
Fast acceleration from low speeds and good grip in really tight turns is key in this section. Cooling also comes into play here as airflow through the heat exchangers inst too great here due to the slower airspeed.
You can see the steepness of the climb here. This is also the most beautiful part of the course.
