009 – James Chartres: Preparing for a Fun & Successful Event

James Chartres and I talk about how a club racer or track day driver can manage all of the things that are needed before and at the track, and still allow time to really focus on one’s driving. We also talk about some specific driving techniques, including left- versus right-foot braking, trail braking, and driving a momentum car.

James races a Spec Racer Ford in the SCCA San Francisco region, runs his own team – Kanga Motorsport – and in his spare time is an aerospace engineer for NASA (or is that the other way around?!). As a club racer, James has put together some amazing marketing partnerships to help support his team, too.
