Race Driving Tip

Speed Secret: The more you learn, the better you get; the better you get, the more you win. Focus on learning, and you’ll win more often. 

Given a choice, which would you rather have:


  • A race win where you didn’t learn anything?
  • A great learning experience, where you gained knowledge that you’ll use the rest of your career, but it came with a 5th place finish?

Okay, that’s a bit of a trick question. But think about.

No matter how talented you are, or how successful you are, the more you improve, the better your chances of winning in the future.

Unfortunately, I’ve met and observed far too many drivers who felt they had all the natural talent in the world, but were eventually beaten by drivers they felt were less skilled. Why? Because those “less-skilled” drivers focused on learning.

Here’s a challenge for you: This season, no matter what type or level of motorsport you’re involved in, make learning your number one objective. Focus on learning. Do everything you can to learn.

If you take this approach, and stay disciplined and focused, I bet you’ll be performing better and better as the season goes along – and you’ll get better results because of it.
