Helping You Be An Even Better Driver.

Drive Faster, Smarter & Have More Fun.

It’s all about YOUR results…

Everything I do – the coaching, the eCourses and eBooks, the podcast, webinars & presentations, tips & YouTube videos… they’re all meant to do one thing: help you get the results you want. What those results are, that’s up to you – driving faster, more consistently, safer, getting into the zone more often, saving money, having more fun, or whatever. Below are just a few of the resources to help you get the results you’re after. – Ross Bentley

Learn More & Have More Fun per Dollar

Performance & race driving is expensive! But, the more you learn, and the better prepared you are before going to the track, the faster you’ll drive, and the more fun you’ll have per dollar spent.

That’s why I created the Speed Secrets eCourses – you’ll learn more in less time, and be better prepared for when you get behind the wheel on track. Designed for high performance and race drivers of all levels and types, from beginner to professional, Performance Driving 101 and Inner Speed Secrets 201 will help you take your driving to the next level.

Webinar Library

The webinars I conduct have been hugely popular… to the point where many wanted access to past ones. If you missed one when I did it live, no problem. Data for Drivers, Reading Your Car, How to Learn a Track Fast, Drive Faster, 7 Ways to Improve Your Performance Driving, and How to Grow Your HPDE Events are all available now. Click here to visit the library (and unlike most libraries, you don’t have to be quiet!).

Learn Tracks Faster

Peter Krause and I share our 50-plus years of experience to help you prepare to drive some of the most challenging, popular and famous race tracks in North America. In these on-demand videos you’ll learn the line, where the track gains grip and where it doesn’t, how to approach learning it, and specific driving techniques to suit each circuit. There’s no better way to prepare to get the most out of every second you spend on these tracks. Click here to visit the library.

A podcast all about performance and race driving, where I have conversations with drivers, coaches, engineers, data geeks, officials… with one goal: to provide you with information that’ll make you an even better driver. Oh, and have fun.

Driver Coach

I coach drivers from novice performance drivers to elite-level pro racers; from NASCAR to Formula Drift; from Club racing to Global RallyCross; and road racing to oval track. In fact, on one weekend while coaching drivers at Le Mans, one of my drivers won a NASCAR race, and a motorcycle rider I was coaching set a record by winning a AMA race by the largest margin ever. With my own background and experience racing Indy cars, prototype sports cars, showroom stock, Trans-Am and GT cars, I can relate to just about any driver. I like to use every “tool” available, from data acquisition and video analysis to track maps and right-seat instruction. My goal is to be the most versatile and complete coach – I’m confident there are few as committed to the art and science of coaching as I am.


With eight Speed Secrets and one kart racing book, four eBooks, a weekly inbox magazine/e-newsletter, and hundreds of magazine and online articles, I guess it comes as no surprise that I love to write in order to share my knowledge and experience with you. But it’s how I do it that matters. Readers are always telling me that I’m able to take a complex topic and put it into down-to-earth, easily-understood words that they can use. That’s probably why my Speed Secrets series is the best-selling driving techniques books ever.


I love sharing my experience and knowledge, and when I’m not writing about it, or sharing it during coaching sessions, I’m likely conducting a seminar, workshop or keynote talk. I make them informal, humorous and fun, and use stories to make my points. My goal is to make my presentations educational, yet entertaining.

Some of the organizations I have worked with are:


“Speed Secrets training really helped me prepare for the transition moving up from karts into proper racing cars. Much of what I learned back then I’m still applying in my racing today, whether it’s competing in sports cars, open-wheel cars, or NASCAR. To be honest, there are so many things I use that Speed Secrets taught me that it’s now second nature – I’ve been doing it for so long. I’m very excited to have the opportunity to drive  for a team like Roush Fenway Racing. The opportunity really came about due to my successes in sports cars – I definitely attribute a lot of that success to the foundation that Speed Secrets gave me.”

“Ross Bentley is masterful at presenting complex concepts in an easy to digest, delightfully entertaining manner. A Ross Bentley seminar will ‘connect the dots’ and will improve your motorsports performance, whether it’s racing, autocrossing, rallying, time trials, lapping days, or high performance Drivers Education. A ‘must attend’ event.”

“On behalf of the Genesee Valley BMW CCA and the Niagara Region PCA, I wish to thank you for your presentation at our Instructor Seminar this past weekend. Bill and I have received nothing but kudos and praise for the seminar and that couldn’t have happened without your involvement. Your presentation was engaging, thoughtful, inspiring and very pertinent to what we hope to achieve with our respective and combined instructor corps. The seminar was a great venue for energizing and motivating our instructors for the season at hand and we hope to explore ways to do future programs with your involvement. Thank you.”

Quick FAQs
Who do you work with?

Well, just about anyone or any group that wants to improve their driving or instructing performance, such as:

  • Car clubs
  • HPDE Drivers
  • Track Day drivers
  • Club racers
  • Pro racers
  • HPDE Instructors
  • Race teams
  • Road racers
  • Oval racers
  • Motorcycle racers
  • Rallycross drivers
So, you don't only coach pro drivers?

No! I enjoy coaching drivers of all levels of the sport, no matter what age, experience level, or type of motorsport. Actually, I pride myself on the fact that I work with all sorts of drivers, and I know it makes me a better coach because it forces me to relate to all levels.

Is the content in your eBooks the same as in your Speed Secrets books?

No, it’s all-new and different. If anything, it compliments what I’ve written in my Speed Secrets books. That can also be said for my Speed Secrets Weekly e-newsletter. A kinda motto I have is “As I learn, you should learn,” therefore I’m constantly writing new material.

How can my club arrange to have you do a seminar or talk?
Just have whoever is in charge of these types of events contact us by email. We’ll take it from there (but feel free to encourage those decision-makers…). We’ll give them all the information they need – pricing, availability, content, requirements, etc.
