    Tapping the brake pedal before braking hard?

    I was just watching some Best Motoring videos and I noticed that the drivers are always tapping slightly the brake pedal before braking hard. They even do it while still accelerating. Is it some kind of brake saving method or does it have to do something with the pads and dust? Could anyone explain what the technique is used for? I googled for it but couldn't find anything.
    I will try to find some youtube videos so that you can see how these drivers do it.

    They are testing for adequate brake pressure (to make sure brake power is readily available when needed before the next corner)

    Re: Tapping the brake pedal before braking hard?

    Hi,

    Tapping pushes the fluids thru the brake lines so as to exert maximum pressure when needed. As stated.

    Re: Tapping the brake pedal before braking hard?

    And it is shifting weight to front of the vehicle so that break performance increases

    Re: Tapping the brake pedal before braking hard?

    Here's me thinking they do it after hard cornering due to brake pad knock-back......
