Using every inch of track is critical to driving corners as fast as possible. But how critical? I explain more in this Speed Secrets tip.
The steering wheel. It’s almost a symbol for driving. And for good reason: it determines where you go. Well, actually you do, by how you turn it.
The next time you feel you’re not improving, or even feel as though you’re going backwards, I suggest pulling out a piece of paper and start writing down all the things you’re doing well.
As you approach a corner, turn your head and look at and through the apex, but have your eyes follow the imaginary pathway that you want the car to travel on.
If you can’t do something in your mind – in your mental imagery – you will never be able to do it physically. So time the laps you visualize to get a measure of how you’re doing.
To be a fast driver, you sometimes need to be creative, and even “let go” of the need to drive perfectly.
