People need to understand that, in a way, performance driving is just like normal, on-street driving - you need to build up a certain set of skills that become your behind-the-wheel-common-sense and rely on them.
Sure, since we’re talking about the track, this common sense will include shenanigans such as drifting, late braking and so on. But, in the end, it should all become a reflex, so that you can feel you’re about to make a mistake before you put yourself in a dangerous situation.
Here's an example for youLet’s take the driver of the Audi TT RS in the clip below - don’t worry, you’ll spot the car in the compilation. Judging by the racecar treats present on the machine, we expect this is not the man’s first lap of the Green Hell.
And yet he makes a terrible late braking mistake, entering a corner while carrying way too much speed. The point just before the corner entry - that’s the moment when his fast driver common sense should’ve kicked in, explaining the difference between late braking and... too late braking.
As you’ll be able to see, the mistake takes a serious toll on the TT RS. To prevent such things from happening more often, you should try to channel your hooning urges and whip your car in a disciplined manner.
