“Driving a car at the limit exiting a corner is like tight-rope walking; entering a corner with the car on the limit is like jumping onto a tight-rope blindfolded”
The difference between the best drivers and the rest is how they use the brakes to minimize time spent slowing down, then maximize corner entry speed in a way that allows them to get to full throttle even sooner exiting the corner. Simple as that! But how? That’s the “super-trick advanced stuff” I’ll share with you in this webinar.
Improve your braking and corner entry speed… consistently.
Ross’s Speed Secrets webinars have been great learning experiences for me. They’re very convenient, and in a short amount of time I get information from him that I can use the next time I go to the track. Very practical and useful. I only wish that I could have them all to myself!
What about you?
When asked, “What’s the one thing about your driving that you’d like most to improve?“, most drivers point to their braking and corner entry speed. This webinar is for you if you’d answer this question with something like these…
- “Brake release. I’m still over-slowing the car more than necessary.”
- “Better balance via control with footwork.”
- “I chicken out and brake too soon on straights when I am going real fast.”
- “Braking consistently at the limit…to the correct cornering speed the tires can take.”
- “Finding/identifying the most effective braking point.”
- “Over-slowing into a corner. Carrying more speed.”
- “I’d like to perfect my threshold braking.”
- “Wheel rate and brake release. I need to work on the ‘flat car’ concept with micro inputs on the wheel before adding the bulk of steering input.”
- “Corner entry speeds and how to judge between braking too much and get to the throttle early vs braking less and feeding throttle.”
- “Left-foot braking.”
- “Trusting the brakes… actually trusting the grip.”
- “How turn-in and brake release changes depending on the corner.”
- “Judging corner entry speed and not over-doing ‘slow in fast out.'”
- “Smoother and quicker transition from brake to gas.”
- “Improving trail braking and not over-slowing the car at the end of a high-speed sector.”
- “Proper timing and speed of clutch pedal release during heel-toe.”

Registration closes on January 16th
As with all Speed Secrets webinars, this one will end with a Q & A session. You get to ask whatever is on your mind.
The webinar will last at least 90 minutes, but likely longer (depending on your questions). And if you register but can’t participate on January 18th, you’ll be able to download a recording of the entire session and all of the resources I provide. The disadvantage of not participating in the Live session is you can’t ask questions (but someone is likely to ask the same one); the advantage is you can replay the recording at your own leisure.
What we’ll cover:
- When to late brake & when not to
- How to set the ideal corner entry speed
- Where to look when approaching & driving through a corner
- How to increase your corner entry speed without hurting your exit
- The when & how of trail braking
- 4 ways to use the brakes to drive faster
- Brake references
- How to use your peripheral vision
- When & how to improve heel & toe downshifting
- How to use your vision & hearing to improve corner entry speed
- How to improve your lap times
- Specific practice “exercises”
Is this for you? It is if…
- You’re an inexperienced or experienced HPDE or track day driver
- You’re an autocrosser
- You’re a club, vintage/historic or pro racer
- You’re a rally or rallycross driver
- You want to learn the most you can in the least amount of time
- You want to drive faster
Packed with take-away skillsets to practice to improve my driving to go faster. It was awesome! Can’t wait to go to the track tomorrow to put into play!

Frequently Asked Questions
Will I be given any notes or hand-outs?
Absolutely! Prior to the webinar, you’ll receive a link to a specific “note-taking” document to help you throughout the session. Then, a video recording of the entire presentation will be posted online for you to download after the webinar, as well as any resources I talk about during the session.
What if I sign up, but can't be on the webinar?
The webinar will be recorded and you’ll be able to access and download it after the session (if you’ve registered for it). You’ll still get all the materials and information, but obviously you won’t be able to ask questions during the live session. (And we’ll miss you…). However, you will be able to watch the recording at your own leisure, on your own schedule.
Will there be an opportunity to ask questions?
Yes. It would be a little boring if not! So, throughout the session, I’ll take some questions. Then, at the end, we’ll have a Q&A session (that’s my favorite part!).
I've never taken a webinar before. How does it work?
After registering, and prior to the webinar (the day before, and once again on the day of the webinar), you’ll be emailed a link to sign in. To participate in the webinar, you’ll need to be online on a computer, tablet or smartphone to view the visuals and hear the audio. A few minutes prior to the start of the session, click on the link and sign in – you’ll have the option of listening/viewing through your computer, tablet or on a phone.
During the webinar, you’ll be able to view my presentation slides while I talk through the topics, plus you’ll have the opportunity to send in questions. I will answer as many of the questions as possible as I go through the presentation, and then I’ll set aside time for Q&A at the end of the session to answer the rest of the questions.
If this is your first webinar, you’ll find out just how great a learning experience it is. You’ll learn from the convenience of your own home. And no, there’s no need to get dressed up (or even dressed!) for it.
