Transcript 

Narrator – “The correct road position into a corner is usually wide because it gives you the best view around the corner and of potential hazards. But if there’s debris or any other hazard out wide, come in slightly to avoid it. Keep a good buffer from oncoming traffic in the other lane. Invest in the right lines at the start for a smooth and steady corner.”
