We found this video from SafeIsFast to be useful for one of the most challenging and important topics in road racing. This is especially the case in Spec racing, BOP series and races on flowing tracks. SafeIsFast summarizes:

"Today, overtaking in all forms of racing has become more difficult than ever - and that has made the ability to qualify well one of the real keys to winning.

But how do the fast guys lay down a flyer when it really counts?

To find out, we asked some of the fastest guys from the top racing series in North America just how they do it: Indy 500 winner Takuma Sato and fellow IndyCar ace Graham Rahal, IMSA Prototype’s fastest driver Ricky Taylor, Porsche factory driver Patrick Long and former Indy Lights Champion Sage Karam."
