When I know the course, I mostly early brake into the turn, downshift if necessary, either lift or coast through the apex and gently reintroduce throttle as I pass the apex. I only use left foot braking to correct a mistake, or if I have to tighten a line to avoid an obstacle (i.e. oncoming traffic...)

When I'm racing in GT3, I usually use cars with killer brakes (calsonic skyline, Arta NSX, Tom's Supra, etc) and use left foot braking (no clutch in GT3 so no worries about slamming on the wrong pedal) deeeeeeep into the corner, with a smooth transition through braking into hard accelleration. This technique really allows you to fly through a turn without dropping revs so it's great for narrow powerbanded cars, but it really eats your brakes.

In real life, unless you have HUGE fade free brakes, left foot braking is a bad idea as a regular technique. Like I said before, I'm still playing some parts of stunt by ear, so I haven't gotten down to a tried and true technique yet... most likely my lines will keep changing until I find something that works.
