Figure 1 shows the data for a rider through the turn 14-15 complex and straightaway at Barber Motorsports Park. The top set of traces shows speed for two consecutive laps, while the bottom traces depict throttle position. Notice the rider carries more speed into turn 15 (top red trace) but is unable to open the throttle until later (bottom red trace) and thus loses speed down the straight.
