Last winter, I wrote a series of letters to the Great Lakes Region's NASA GTS drivers on the subject of becoming faster and better racing drivers. I am re-posting these letters here in response to a number of recent requests to make them available again.
As this season's Winter Update letters are finished, I'll post them, too.
GTS Winter Updates from Winter 2009-2010
- GTS Winter Update I -- Tips for going faster
- GTS Winter Update II -- Tweaking your car
- GTS Winter Update III -- The start
- GTS Winter Update IV -- Dialing in your new aero
- GTS Winter Update V -- An introduction to racecraft
- GTS Winter Update VI -- Getting through traffic (added January 8, 2011)
- GTS Winter Update VII -- Passing (added March 28, 2011)
Also, as long as I'm at it, there are a number of posts I've made over the years in this blog which may be of interest to some readers:
- Corner balancing your car
- Heel-and-toe double-clutch downshifting
- Left-foot braking
- Steering with the throttle (with a detailed description of heel-and-toe downshifting in the comments)
- Driving real race cars. My favorite blog post of all, detailing a fast lap around Mid-Ohio.
- Weight transfer
- What it's like on a race track in and out of the rain
- Why you need a HANS device
And that, as Bubba said, is about it.
