There are quite a few things that don’t matter much when driving day to day on the street that suddenly become important when driving at speed on a race track.

Professional Race Driver and Coach, Scott Mansell, has given permission for our competitors to access the techniques that his Company Driver 61 has developed in the below Tutorials from their Drivers University.

Many of these techniques require practice and patience to master. The good news is that many of these can be practiced during every day driving to help them become second nature. You will find that the art of going quickly and safely around a race track is acquired through quality practice.

When on the track, concentrate on the quality of your driving more than your speed. With quality practice the speed will come as you become more familiar with your car and the track.
