Editorial Reviews

Autosport Magazine
. . . . This book enables the reader to understand some of the most complex theories of driving. . . Put simply, this is one of the books to read about race car driving.
Bob Roemer
No racer, or driver school participant should be without this book. (Bob Roemer - Roundel Magazine, May 1998)
Jim Kearney
For a beginner not to avail themselves of this book is unpardonable. More experienced drivers will also be making a mistake to avoid it. You may not agree with everything it says about racing, but it will make you think about your driving in competition. (Jim Kearney - SportsCar Magazine, May 1998)
Road & Track Magazine
Going Faster. . . is the most complete, most compelling, best illustrated look at the technique and science of race driving I've seen to date.
Steven C. Smith
Years in the making, it may be the best book on race-driving technique to date. Lopez has seen every mistake that can possibly occur on a racetrack, and his book is designed to help you avoid them. "Going Faster" is not a substitute for the Skip Barber three-day racing class, but considering the fact that it's more than $2000 cheaper, it's the next best thing to being there. (Steven Cole Smith - Car and Driver Magazine, August , 1998)

    Came Highly Recommended

    This book was recommended by an instructor at Watkins Glen - it's a really good read packed with info from cover to cover. The sad part is that it's hard to come by and B&N sent me a bent up copy, like always. I wish they'd pack things better!
