How to Prioritise Circuit Corners for Maximum Benefit


In today’s tutorial, we’re taking a look at how to prioritise corners at a circuit to help reduce lap time.

Not all corners on a circuit have equal importance, as carrying good speed into, and more importantly out of, can result in various time differences depending on the type of turn.

Therefore, it’s important that a fast driver is conscious of which corners he should focus his attention, both regarding adapting racing line and car set up to suit the most significant turns.
