From the Publisher
Driving a race car is not something you can do “by the book.” You have to learn mostly through hands-on experience, but you can learn many of the basics by reading and studying a book. Save years of trial and error learning by simply reading and understanding this book!
For the Beginner...
I hope this book serves as a reference for a long time. Some of the information may not make sense until you’ve gone past the basics and begun working on fine-tuning your techniques. But I hope it will help you start on the right foot and that you can refer to it again later.
For the Experienced Driver...
There may be a lot of information you already know. You may be using some of that information, and you may not even understand why you are using some of it. I suggest you read it again and really think it through. It’s surprising how a fresh approach can sometimes make it all click for you, resulting in a dramatic increase in speed.
This Book is Your Guide to Success
Parts of Ultimate Speed Secrets are written with one focus: driving a car at the limit, getting the maximum speed out of it, no matter what the surface or layout of road or track in front of you. Another part of the book is written in the pursuit of winning races. No matter how fast you are, there comes a time in racing where the wheel-to-wheel competition, or racecraft , takes precedence. It’s one thing to drive fast and another entirely to out-race the competition. And because some people either want to make a living racing professionally, or at least want someone else to off set their expenses, I touch on what it takes to be a professional racer, from career moves to sponsorship.
Even if you are a beginner, reading and using the information in this book may help you develop your basic skills without acquiring any bad habits. That will give you an edge on your competition, who oft en spend more time dealing with their bad habits than working on improving.
"This new book presents more racing knowledge in an easy to comprehend, adapt and use than any previous ones over decades of racing. It is not a quick read but an excellent one with much to ponder, reflect on and put into practice. After each track session you'll probably return to it to further hone your skills and fitness both mental and physical. It is complete coaching for the vintage or amateur and it also has many items for the serious aspiring oval or road racer. This means team building, team dynamics, sponsors and sponsorships and much more. It has much to offer the vintage racer no matter the type of car or the intensity of the competition. Buy it, read it, practice the info and you'll be a safer, quicker and more satisfied race car driver." - Vintage Oval Racing
"If you are a track-day driver or a regular racer, I guaranteed the $20 or less you pay for his book will be the most cost-effective way to lower your lap time you ever invested." - Keith Martin's Sports Car Market
