Today’s Tip – When Do You Accelerate?

Last week we looked at the ideal technique of getting into the corner but when and how should you accelerate?

In a modern car with modern tyres and suspension the ideal acceleration point is where you can get either full throttle or build to full throttle quickly and smoothly.

In an older, classic, car, especially on historic tyres you would aim to finish the braking earlier and pick up the throttle earlier to balance the car mid corner on the throttle. You would gently feed in the throttle out to the exit.
