It's really true.

There are many things that factor in to driving as fast as possible around an autocross course, but few matter more than minimizing distance. When you're going ~45 mph average, an extra 10 feet is a big chunk of time, so perfect arcs with the biggest radius through the corners is not necessarily the goal like it is on a racetrack where you need to take as much speed as possible onto each straightaway.
