Goal

Improve left foot braking and concentrate on smooth steering.

Conclusion

A great set of sessions . The left foot braking is definitely paying off.

Assigned Task

This is the last week for the MX5 Cup. Look to hit your fastest lap time. Jump on an AI race as well maybe 6 drivers (AI level 85) for some fun.

1st key mistake: 

Not using enough space on the exit

Why it matters

Great improvements here but hitting the limits of the track on each and every corner brings the lap times down.

How much of a problem it is for you

As you continue to improve with the left foot braking, the times are coming down. The finesse now comes from the racing line and this is over 50% of your mistakes this week.

See an example in your own sessions

A very clear example in segment 1, creating the tighter angle is putting more lateral pressure on the tires, instead of allowing longitudinal forces to dominate.

Learn to improve

Your understanding of the racing line is good but it is important to optimise this on each section of the race track.

2nd key mistake:

Missed apex

Why it matters

Hitting your apexes will allow you to make the most of the grip available and carry more speed through the corner. More traction will give better exit choices for your next corners setup.

How much of a problem it is for you

12% of all of your mistakes are missed apex

See an example in your own sessions

Segment 4 is an example of missing your apex.  On this sweeping corner you can afford to 'flatten' the apex more and retain necessary speed for the straight before T6.

Learn to improve

When driving longer, wider corners remember to adjust your entry and exit stategy, always have in the back of your mind. 'How can I retain my speed as efficiently as possible'.

3rd key mistake: 

Turning in too late

Why it matters

A hard technique to master as there are different ways of entering and thus exiting a corner. Coupled with track eccentricities mean trial and error is needed to optimise the corner.

How much of a problem it is for you

Again about 12% of your errors fall into the category of turning in too late.

See an example in your own sessions

Look at the racing line compared to yours for segment 1.
