I'm not doing any racing, but at the half pedal mark I can get out of any trouble that presents itself.
The OP doesn't mention which year or engine/transmission, which makes it a bit more difficult to answer anything other than general.
I find that if you do the 1/2-3/4 pedal trick enough in ECO mode [after a hard reset on purpose], it will learn that you honestly would like to get up and move after a while.
However, if I am coming up on a short passing area, a quick drop into Sport just before the passing area does shift it noticeably quicker... then just drop back to "I have to pay for this freakin' gas" ECO mode afterwards.
