Race Strategy?

When you go to a track, what techniques do you focus on first? How do you decide what to work on first and where to put your attention and focus? How does that change from practice to when the flag drops and the race starts?

Line selection, braking points, throttle control.
Focus is on consistency and error correction.
Nothing changes when the flag drops. Unfortunately, I don't miraculously become faster when it's a race.

Do you have to leave so soon? I was just about to poison the tea.

Do you ever draw the track? I find that helps tremendously with remembering points and solidifying on track reference points.

Most of us don't get miraculously faster when racing, you put in the work during practice and when the flag drops it's time to ride. Sometimes that can be enough to push you up to 100% if you were riding 95% in practice/qualifying which is why some people can go faster, but it mostly due to the time they put in before hand, on improving skills. My experience with it anyway
