Braking, Steering and Throttle TechniquesAlex Lloyd6/26/12 2:00pmFiled to: How To Drive Fastalex lloydTopFb1365EditPromoteShare to KinjaToggle Conversation toolsGo to permalinkWe've mastered the racing line, but now we need to understand the techniques necessary to operate a car at its limits. This is the aspect that turns you from a wannabe racer, that is regularly ridiculed by all your competitors in the local autocross, to the guy standing atop of the podium, swigging the urine-tasting swill of Wal-Mart's own bubbly. Here's what I do when I look at a particular corner: First I figure out the important part of the turn –- entry or exit –- and adjust my line as necessary. Once I have located the ideal apex point, I figure out where the earliest opportunity is for me to get back to full throttle. When I have found it, I try to get to that point as quickly as possible and still make it back to 100% power at my newly marked spot.
