I did it by numbering turns in a rhythm. I can’t read, but I can count. I learned the track by playing the video game a lot, and I watched videos. I count turns in a rhythm, like 1,2, tight 1,2, tight, 1,2,3 fast, 1,2, don’t be a pussy… [Don] Canet (who finished third in his rookie attempt this year) knew every turn by name; that is narly! I can’t remember shit, but I’ve got rhythm. I did the same thing for Isle of Man.
