Style Vs Technique

Technique is king, as it is in all equipment based sports but your individual style is also important.

I was fortunate to work recently on an event with a couple of legends of the sport and looking at their data showed near identical lap times but wildly different styles: one attacked corner entry; the other was all about mid corner speed.

This shows that although you should focus on your technique, get the basics right, but tune them to your style. Forcing a different technique can challenge your confidence and driving fast is a confidence game.
