A buddy of mine shared this with me and I found it very interesting. I thought it would be good to share here.

it's true it is a publicity. But the concepts exposed remain interesting to explore.

I'm using Racelogic's PerformanceBox and I've been able to find all kinds of time around my favorite circuit by just looking at where I'm going slow and where I'm going fast. On my last day out, yesterday, I made a quarter-second faster time through one sector on a cool-down lap (compared to my best lap of the day) because I cut two of the corners and took a shorter route at a slower speed while I was relaxing on my way back to the paddock.

You just never know...

I had the pleasure of having CanAutM3 as my instructor this past weekend on Le Circuit Mont Tremblant and we worked on a number of the premises in the article. A lot of the information really works well, especially the shorter line through some corners, including the entrance to the Esses and The Carousel. BTW. Thanks CanAutM3 for all of the great instruction, I learned a ton of new principles and now have lots of work to do.
