To Survive at High Velocity

Racecar teams look to reduce the time it takes their cars to complete a circuit. They focus most of their efforts on improving what's called cornering speed, because it's in the corners, where cars must reduce speed, that precious time is lost. Using a mix of practice lap and actual race footage, this video segment adapted from NOVA highlights the forces at work on a racecar as it travels around a track.
