Today’s Tip – Rate of Turn

A short but important tip today.  The rate at which you turn the steering wheel into a corner is inversely proportional to the entry speed.

This is all to do with chassis stability.  In a fast corner you want to turn the wheel relatively slowly as you add steering lock into the corner, this keeps the car as stable as possible at high speed.  Into a low speed corner you want to be faster with the steering, if anything you want to induce some instability into the slower corners to help the car rotate around a larger angle more quickly.
