I propose a slight alteration. As a hypermiler/ecomodder, I'm not interested in powering out of the corner, just getting through it while maintaining the most momentum. (I'm in neutral, engine off ) Going through the corner, I will be losing speed. Therefore, I can take the later part of the turn tighter than the first. This leads me to adopt a slightly "early apex" approach where I come in straighter and tighten the turn as I come around.
