The way I see it now:

1) Approaching a turn in say 3rd at 150 km/h
2) Start braking, till like 100 km/h, downshift to 2nd rev matching (means stopping braking for a bit)
3) Continue braking till 60 km/h, take the turn, accelerate...

Or, is it better to leave the revmatch downshift till later, like 70 km/h?
Based off your information, it's pretty difficult to give advice on "is it better to leave the revmatch downshift till later, like 70 km/h?"

Ideally, you want to brake then rev match so you're in the gear you want to be in, at the point in the powerband you want to be in.

Ideally, you want to heel toe and trail brake.
