    Greetings,

    We just published a new, original article. Mike Skeen and Johan Schwartz are presenting a series of track-walk webinars called CircuitStudies. Skeen is a veteran of many professional race series including IMSA Weathertech and NASCAR Trucks. Scwhartz is the 2016 Pirelli World Challenge Champion and a BMW Performance Center instructor.

    Skeen and Schwartz used Sebring's turn 17 to illustrate a typical CircuitStudies track walk:

    ...you want to remember that this corner connects two lengthy straights and has a big bump in the center, so you want to compromise your mid-corner speed a bit in favor of high entry speed and a good exit....Focus on braking deep into the corner, minimize the coast on the way to the bridge, use the little dot on the bridge as a reference point for your placement as the car rotates, and try to pick up the throttle early at the exit."

    Thanks and enjoy!

    p.s. You may notice that we changed our name. More on that to come.

    Reading The Car Through Your Hands And Feet

    "If you ever find yourself pulsing on and off the brake pedal, work on making it one efficient motion: Make the first hit as hard as you can (without locking the tires) and smoothly taper off as you approach the turn-in."

    "The goal in every corner is to get maximum exit speed by giving the car one nice throttle application as early as the car will take it"
