Every racing book talks about the racing line. When you start going to driving events, the coaches and other drivers will talk incessantly about the line. Set up on the outside of the track, brake, downshift, turn in, apex, unwind, track out. You’ve gotta drive the line if you want to be fast. Right? You’ll also hear that driving the line is the safest way around the track because other drivers will expect you to be on it. That may be true on a track day, but it’s not true in a race. If you want to get hit in a road race, one of the best ways is to drive the racing line. Why? Because when you set up on the outside of the track, you just sent an invite to a couple of ass idiots behind you to have a drag race to the inside of the corner.
