Ian Korf and I talk about his experience driving FWD cars, how to practice with simulators, and what a driver’s DNA says about their ability… and then Ian flips the table and starts interviewing me – and we talk about how to manage being nervous before an event, whether a driver should care about what happens to other drivers on the track, and what heroes I have.
Ian is a professor at UC Davis who is also a driving instructor, author of the You Suck At Racing book (available on Amazon), and an endurance racer. I stumbled onto his website, yousuckatracing.com a couple of years ago, and have enjoyed and learned a lot from the content there. Ian also writes articles every now and then for Speed Secrets Weekly. Be sure to check his blog out at www.yousuckatracing.com.
