Practice, practice, practice:
these are the best three
words of advice. You must master cornering, braking,
and acceleration to make it to the winner's circle. But
the true blend of talent and skill is when you can see
the fastest racing line and take advantage of it. Here
are some tips and techniques you need to succeed.
To reach the winner's circle,
you need to discover the best
line around the track.
Worldly
racers know that the fastest
line between two points is a
curve. This curve is called the
"racing line."
Forza Motorsport
shows
imaginary lines on the racetrack.
These lines follow the general
path of smoothness and least
resistance. These lines are the
"generic" lines for the moderate
racer and apply to a wide range
of cars, so you don't always have
to follow them to be the fastest
on the track. The line's color
changes to indicate your
appropriate speed based upon
the track conditions. Green
arrows suggest acceleration
(such as when on a
straightaway) and red arrows
indicate when you should be
braking (such as if a hairpin turn
is coming up). By following these
recommendations, the moderate
driver can obtain a higher
average speed as well as the
safest route through a
challenging track.
However, when you get your
own unique vehicle pimped out
the way you like it, the racing
lines may not show the best way
through a track for your car.
As an alternative to
following the suggested
line on the track, watch
for where the tire tracks
are grouped near the
corner entry. Their
location may indicate a
better line.
