Guest contributor and racer, Canaan Manley, shares some timeless racing lessons below.
When you approach a corner there is a lot to do:
- Take note of your surroundings and braking markers
- Move to the outside and
- Get most of the braking done
But it’s not enough to get those done.
We need to make sure we do all of that work before we start cornering.
We want things to be settled and balanced as we turn.
Cornering is going to take a lot of traction.
Anything unnecessary, like last minute moves to the outside or heavy braking past turn-in points, will reduce cornering ability.
