Flat out turn left, nothin' too it really, no gears or brakes, use the clutch and peg the throttle once and hold on for 4 laps.

Good story about the XS 650 powered tracker there,legendary rider Chuck Palmgren had none other than Dan Gurney doing his cylinder heads ,one night Chuck was all worried about over revving the fast but fragile Yammie.Finaly Dan says "what the problem Chuck?","well if I gear it down it revs to hard on the long straight,if I gear it up it would pull out of the corner".Hmm yes well I have a solution Dan says, goes to the toolbox returns with a shifter ,unbolts the tacho and throws it away."Now gear it down and hold it flat on the straight"  ;D
