A spoiler can help you a little bit through the corners at slower speeds around 45mph, but only very little because not as much air is flowing over compared to 100mph. Take an F1 car for example, the faster it goes the more downforce is created. A guy I know who races did a little bit of testing with a spoiler and said for the type he was running he had to be taking a corner at about 60mph for it to create any usable downforce, any slower and it was only creating drag and slowing him down.
