    While reading a biography of Graham Hill (F1 racer of the 60's era) I came across a quote. Something like "You mostly race the track, more so than the other drivers." In other words, drive the car to its limit, but keep it upright and between the lines. Smooth and consistent will get you around the other guys.

    Agreed. I always feel that way. That's why your practice hot laps are so critical. If you've got great lap times, it's a gigantic leap forward.

    Though, I've had times where I have amazing hot laps in practice, but in the race with a driver pressuring me constantly just 0.3 seconds away...I sometimes crack.

    I used to be very late at braking. I've eased up on the brakes to hit the apex now and concentrate on the line and good exits. Dropped my time by seconds at every track and car.

    Thanks to everyone for providing these resources, I've learned a lot. Previously I've driven around the tracks rather casually without actually thinking too much about it - with the expected the results. Do any of you have a suggestion of good car/track combinations for practicing basic skills such as racing line, braking points, cornering etc? Last time I practiced with a Toyota GT86 on Oulton Park Island which I think gives me a good variety of challenges. But maybe there are other or even better examples?
