What is the racing line? Why is it important to hit the apex? The racing line attempts to make the largest diameter turning radius in order to minimize lateral g's on the vehicle, thus allowing for greater driving speeds. The idea is to try to make the track into as straight of a line as possible. The math backs this up.
