Visual Guide To Cornering

MSF-Corner-Vision-TITLE

You have read it and heard it many times before. How to take a corner quickly and smoothly. Yet, when you get out there on the hills or on the circuit, you’re being left behind by the car in front. Allow me to brief you differently, hopefully with this one you’ll be able to better visualise what needs to be done.

These are the most basic-of-basic concepts you need to get into your mind if you’re serious about going quickly and smoothly:
1) Plan your lines
2) Look where you’re going
3) Brake in a straight line and don’t brake too late
4) Gentle throttle control
5) Go for a late Apex, then straighten out and floor that throttle!

In words, they’re hard to visualise. So I’m going to try my best here and make you understand it visually.

Brake, release, and Turn In

MSF-Corner-Vision-1

Balance the throttle, be patient

MSF-Corner-Vision-2

Approaching the Apex, straightening up, and opening the throttle

MSF-Corner-Vision-3

Touch the Apex, and floor it!

MSF-Corner-Vision-4

That’s as graphic as it can literally be! You can even practice this in simulators, it works the same. Get the basics right, then you can move forward to more advanced techniques such as Braking Into The Turn. But there’s no point trying that out if you’re turning in too early, accelerating too early, or even too late! When you see the road in the distance moving back towards the center, then and only then do you open it up. And when you do, open it up Big and Steer Towards the Exit, and your speeds will improve greatly.

Next, let’s look at how this affects multiple corners. In the real world, there are more linked corners than single turns, but generally the concept is the same: look as far as you can, take as late an apex as you can, and as soon as you see the corner open up you can floor the throttle.

Brake, look as far as you can, and turn in

Corner-Vision-Linking-1

Keep looking ahead, adjust the apex as necessary

Corner-Vision-Linking-2

Pinpoint the 2nd Apex, and strategise your cornering line

Corner-Vision-Linking-3

Past the 1st Apex, prepare for the 2nd corner

Corner-Vision-Linking-4

Set the car for the 2nd corner, balance the car, aim for a 2nd late apex

Corner-Vision-Linking-5

Head for as straight an exit as possible, keep looking at the end of the road

Corner-Vision-Linking-6

As you see the corner opening up, floor it!

Corner-Vision-Linking-7

So as you can see, you can’t run from the basics. Once again:
1) Plan your lines
2) Look where you’re going
3) Brake in a straight line and don’t brake too late
4) Gentle throttle control
5) Go for a late Apex, then straighten out and floor that throttle!

Stick to that formula, and I promise you, your speeds will increase greatly!

2015 will be the last year of SNF

SNF2015-last-SNF600b

We are sad to see it go, but this year – 2015 – will be last year of SNF…

..and will be replaced with a bigger, more fun, more encompassing speed festival that will bring as many Malaysian grassroots motorsports activities together as possible!

After 6 years, and numerous races, and SNF Touge, and SNF Moto, and SNF MSR.. we are ready to organise a new motorsports carnival, with a mix of many types of events, using the SIC Full Circuit, and all-day activity and circuit action. Some events that will run in the new series are:
– Door-to-door racing, of course
– Open Track day
– Moto racing
– ‘Drag lambak’ (True street only)
– Time Attack
– Drift Attack (we’re looking a new type of drift sub-genre)
– Autoshow

It will all fit in one, big, exciting day out for both motorsports fans, and your families.
The formula will remain the same: Exhilarating, exciting racing!
Imagine that: 8:00 am till 7:00 pm of motorsports!

It will be a whole new event… but a familiar one. Codename for the new event? “MSF“.

In a nutshell to whet your appetite:
Morning
– Ignition Track day, 2 x 2hr sessions
– Registration for MSF Racing Series
– Registration for support event A
– Registration for support event B
Noon (concurrent)
– Support event A session 1 (North)

MSF Racing Series

MSF Racing Series will take off where SNF Racing Series signs off.
– categories will be the same!
– annual Challenge Trophy to be introduced for RC 1 and Street Tuned
– annual Challenge Trophy for other categories will be sponsor dependant
Features:
– Similar format: practice/qualifying + 2 races
– Standing starts with 1-minute pre-race grid, no more rolling starts (bring your own race queens!)
