Re: Clothoid?

These are the sorts of corners that can conflict with the (awful) 'chase the limit point' soundbite often used. It is paramount when teaching limit point cornering techniques that the fact you may need to ease/feather the throttle mid corner is discussed. These corners do catch some out but I do kno...

Not sure. It's what Roadcraft snappily calls "an overtake in the absence of all other hazards". The flowing one you mainly do on the dual c/w maintaining a constant speed.
