It depends what class you are racing mate.
If your racing a modified motor then you will probably find that you should brake coming into a corner and then coast through. Only put your throttle on in a corner at the point where you dont need to lift it again... (the best time is the ealiest you can get away with)
In a 27turn class you might find that you dont want to use brakes at all. (that can depend on track size and corner style also)
As for car possition coming into a corner, its always better to take a corner as smooth as possible, by going wider before a corner it enables you to take the line without the car turning on as big of an angle, Lines can change according to the following set of corners however though, as explained in a previous post.
hope that helps
