Maximising The Corner Entry Phase

January 17, 2023

This tutorial examines in detail how to maximise the corner entry phase of a turn. Typically, drivers can lose or gain a lot of time in this area, which is technically complex.

There’s lots of balance required when releasing the brakes as smoothly as possible and beginning to steer into the apex. It’s easy to unsettle the car and lose a truck-load of lap time and just as easy to not carry enough speed into the turn – finding the balance is difficult.

This tutorial will cover:

  • Exactly what is the corner entry phase
  • How technique needs to differ for various corners
  • Steering and braking to maximise entry speed
  • Being conscious of limiting factors
  • Common improvements to make
