Other than making sure your car is in good order, take it easy going into Duffus Laughing Keep an eye on your mirrors and dont let cars overtake in silly places.

And taking it easy into duffus doesn't mean go in with no power on. You WILL end up going round it backwards that way. If there is tuition book a session or go for a few laps with someone more experienced. There are always loads of people to ask that can show you track etiquette and lines. Might not make you into an f1 driver but should help you out.
