If you guys have time to look and see how fast you are going entering a corner you are doing it all wrong.
Only way I ever know how fast I am running is from telemetry.
The Focus is not a straightaway car. You should be all over the back of or pulling away from most cars in the turns if you are up to speed and the car is handling properly.
You need to compare yourself to your times not other guys on the track. Maybe compare yourself to other guys in equal cars but don't look at a V6 or V8 car and think you are slow, because you get pulled on the straights
