Still struggling with improving your lap time on a racetrack? Luckily for you, we’ve got the second part of our series about improving your racing line. If you haven’t already done so, be sure to check out our first part about the racing line.


When drivers talk about racing lines, there are two main schools of thought on how to best approach a corner. The first technique, appropriately known as the classic or traditional racing line, aims to hit the geometric apex of the corner. By hitting the apex of your turn in line with the geometric apex of the corner, you’ll be able to smooth out your corner efficiently as well as maintain your momentum by minimizing the tightness of the corner arc. This method of attacking aggressive corners like the ones you’ll see at SPEEDVEGAS is also the easiest way to reduce the likelihood of oversteer and understeer.


The modern racing line has grown in popularity because it offers the driver the opportunity at the fastest overall lap time. This method looks to take advantage of corners that specifically lead into longer straightaways by hitting the racing apex after the geometric apex. By sacrificing some entry speed, driver’s who can exploit the modern racing line on our racetrack are able to come out of the turns at much higher speeds.


Both techniques have their own pros and cons, but the modern racing line offers the opportunity to reach faster lap time, but only in a high powered car. Luckily for you, SPEEDVEGAS offers a wide selection of high-performance exotic cars like the Ferrari Scuderia or the Lamborghini Gallardo. The best part about driving at our Las Vegas racetrack is that you can experiment with your racing line in a safe, controlled environment.


SPEEDVEGAS is located just 10 minutes away from the famous “Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas” sign and is sure to be an unforgettable experience for any car enthusiast. SPEEDVEGAS is scheduled for opening in March of 2016. For more information, check out our website, www.SPEEDVEGAS.com or give us a call at 1-877-597-6403 Ext. 226.

​When people talk about a racing line, they aren’t referring to any kinds of physical markings on the track but rather an imaginary line that driver’s follow to maximize their lap time. Depending on the situation, it may be best for you to enter a corner from the outside and dive inward or vice versa. Determining the optimal racing line is a skill that is essential to drive an exotic car at a high level.
