Thanks for info lee.

BTW Left foot braking will cost you time and speed. Remember that if you are still accelerating BEFORE reaching the apex, that means that your entering speed is not high enough. The maximum speed is allowed by the maximum adhesion in the corner, and braking in a corner is not the proper way to reach maximum adhesion. And also you should consider reaccelerating after the apex, not braking. Just my 02 driving cents.

Im not going to get into a discussion on L/F braking. Suffice it to say, my problem
here was occuring during pad warm-up, which
was being done before any real driving.
They are Ferodo DS3000 race pads.

Also, im sure someone can suggest a few
books on basic race techniques? e.g.
Drive to win or something along those
lines etc.
