Few thoughts...

I have my seat memory set for both daily driving and track. When switching to track, the seat moves forward, more upright and slightly higher with side bolsters inflated to max. Doing so results in several benefits. Sitting deep in the seat with full bolsters keeps me stationary when cornering. Bent knees allow for comfort and your legs should not fully extend when braking, clutch, etc. Sitting higher allows for better visibility... Potholes maybe, but it's more about seeing the hood and gauging distance from curbs and corners. Lastly, adjust your mirrors so that you do not have blind spots. The center covers exactly that... The center rear view. The side mirrors make up the space between the rear view and what was previously your blind spots.

That's my 2 cents.
