If you want a high performance binding for ski racing, you'll definitely want to consider a Rossignol ski binding. For example, Rossignol manufactures high end bindings that offer a shorter mounting zone to make the fit more secure and efficient.
Additionally, they provide seven points of contact between binding and boot, as opposed to the average number of three points of contact. The idea is that by using this better binding, you will get a more balanced flex that will allow for better contact on the snow and therefore more control when skiing. Clearly, more control will make your racing faster and more accurate.
