The rev count is calculated by multiplying the track gear ratio by the current speed, so lower gears correspond to more revs at the same wheel speed when compared to higher gears. These figures have been scaled up by a factor of 1.44 from the Commodore 64 track data, to bring them in line with the other BBC Micro tracks. The values from the Commodore 64 version are 72, 0, 72, 47, 40, 35 and 30.
