Goodwood is right handed, open and undulating.
Exiting the infield pit lane there is a short run up to Madgewick.
The three main corners on the circuit are all double apex, and here the first apex isn't too important as long as you hit the second one nice and tight.
The total turn is about 120 degress and there is a slight bump in between the apexes which lifts the car so don't try to change direction too fast in the middle.
Once the car settles again, back on the power towards Fordwater, a fast gentle righthander with a crest at the apex - this needs to be taken flat out for a quick lap.
A short straight, and then brake and downshift for the 30 degree right hander with no name (where Stirling Moss famously crashed). Hold the car to the centre of the track on the exit as you are about to turn hard left for St Marys.
Turn in positively but then relax a little as the camber drops away - the car will start to drift wide until the track rises again and grip returns.
Accelerate hard again and then brake firmly for the entry into Lavant, another double apex righthander.
You are about the enter the Lavant straight, the fastest part of the circuit, so keep it neat on the way in, and make sure you are propely placed for the second part of the bend so you can apply power all the way through.
Every extra mph of exit speed counts here. Hold the throttle wide open all the way down Lavant, straightening the slight kink and keep your nerve as Woodcote, the last double apex, rushes up at you.
Woodcote exits almost directly into the chicane so the priority is to keep all that entry speed for as long as possible - brake late and hard, turn in and perhaps brake again, touch the second apex, a quick squirt and then slow it right down for the chicane. Right then left, not much space on the exit and marked out by tyre walls, so technique wins over bravado.
