THE SCIENCE OF SPEED

Welcome to the next generation of racecar driver education. Many people don't realize, but for a given car, setup, and conditions there is in fact a singular optimum way to navigate a racetrack in the minimum time possible. A set of fundamental physics based rules exist that can guide you in your never-ending pursuit of speed.

While a driver will never be able to achieve a truly perfect lap in reality, there is one place an actual perfect lap can exist. It can exist in the mind and give a driver a goal they can always strive to reach. That is what we teach in our program. A set of rules that take a physics based approach to finding an optimal solution on track and distilling it into an intuitive way of driving that racers at any level can begin to apply.

You will no longer have to try to mimic the laps of faster drivers. Instead, you will be able to watch their laps and identify where they are losing time. You will have a solid goal to focus on as you reach ever closer toward perfection.

HOW OUR PROGRAM WORKS:

Our Science of Speed Series books are designed to be an easy-to-follow guide that will provide all the tools a driver will need through their racing career. It is our primary goal to educate drivers to essentially become their own driving coach.

The books can be approached in any order, but we recommend you start with The Perfect Corner. These can be purchased through our website or at major retailers such as Amazon.

A purchase through our website will also gain you access to our Ask-a-Driver Coach service. You will be able to send in specific questions and we have racing coaches specializing in road course racing, karting, autocross, and sim racing who can answer.

For those drivers looking for more personalized attention, we also offer further coaching services ranging from one-on-one calls to trackside coaching support. Please contact us for details and pricing.
