Yes it is a technique that some racers use in specific corners at specific tracks.

I tried to learn to do it and found i did not improve my lap times when some others did.
Probably too tense and could not relax.
That' s about the time I actually made it up to the front pack where the fast guys of the day usually ran. It did not take me long to learn i did not belong there, got my boney ass back to the mid pack guys and enjoyed my racing for a couple more years.
Some guys race themselves and their own lap times, they usually live longer

As Clint Eastwood said " a mans got to know his limitations"

Same here. Just took me longer to learn that lesson.

Got some stuff to hang on the wall, but some broken bones as well.
