Re: What Is - RACECRAFT

Racecraft is a pretty vague term and you probably would be better served to split your question into the components that make up racecraft. Those would be:

1) Practicing
2) Qualifying
3) Starts
4) Beginning, mid-race and end-race pace
5) Passing
6) Tire usage
7) Pit strategy
