Knowing what gear you need to be in for each corner and counting the gears when you downshift is a must. Once you figure those out it will get easier. Up shifting becomes automatic really quickly, just listen to the engine to know when to shift.

Thanks. Up shifting is easy because of the engine, as you mention. Nice tip for down shifting though, I'll try it! :)
