– Correct, Pause, and Recover
DwD 0330: CPR and Racing – Correct, Pause, and Recover)
CPR is typically referred to in a medical emergency. But in racing, CPR is in reference to Correct, Pause, and Recover when you are out of sorts on the track. The thought behind the acronym is that when your car gets out of shape or out of control on a track, one of the things that should be taken into consideration is that this can often require a procedure where you not only correct for the issue/error, but you must wait an appropriate amount of time for the correction to take effect on the car. This allows the change to be transferred to the car through the vehicle through the suspension and then after seeing the car respond, the driver will then have to finish the process with a recovery to continue along the desired pathway on track. This is because the correction will often lead to a change of course that requires a further input to track properly. The unique aspect of this process is being relaxed enough to wait and feel the pause before applying the recovery before the correction has taken place. Without the pause, a driver can often get caught up in greater and greater oscillations and get “behind” the vehicle and end up in a worse condition than the original issue would have caused. This is likely part one of several episodes.
