Think its braking, with no "e"?
:P


Definitely worth watching, saved it to watch again.
Thanks, was just reading about this.


:D

Glad you could catch it in time.
:)

The points that seem most important about trail braking are use it on slower corners, when you are going slow anyway, and/or very briefly when setting the car's balance for mid-turn and exit.

Been reading Carroll Smith, Drive to Win, who also suggests using left foot braking.

Well, if you don't brake soon enough then you break.  What a language!  ;)
