    Greatest advice about braking in this video: “even though you’re racing the
    other guy, you never stop racing the racetrack”. This usually happens when
    you are in overtaking mode, and you tend to loose focus on the track itself
    and pay more attention to the guy next to you…

    “Even though you’re racing the other guy, you never stop racing the race
    track”. That’s exactly how I see it! It’s my car against the race track, if
    I can wield the race track to perfection, then I have more chances of
    beating the other guy.

    Would be curious how some one like me with iRacing would do this on lime
    rock. Already knowing the track. Would you have to much in the head and
    fail hard (some how I reckon this will happen) Or will you use that advandce
    excellent and do it simpler than other people (this I would more hope for ofc :P)

    Its always fun to trick people into not braking for the corner, and then
    quick them as they go straight off into the wall…… on Shift 2 and
    Forza that is.
