    Question for track junkies

    For you track junkies , Can anyone recommend a book to read on driving technique before I go to driving school and track.

    Re: Question for track junkies

    yes i was searching for a good book too, but no luck

    thats interesting stuff,although practise is the best method

    Re: Question for track junkies

    "Porsche high-performance driving hand book" by Vic Elford

    "secrets of solo racing" by Henry A. Watts

    The first book has a lot of nice anecdotes and stories while the second one is more to the point. Different styles, but I like both books.

    Re: Question for track junkies

    Both are excellent books......

    Re: Question for track junkies

    how about getting a copy of GT4 and spend time simulating rather than reading??

    Can we buy these books internationally? I'll be interested to read them

    Slow in / Fast out - that's all you really need to know.

    A little theory can go a long way. I also spend time on GT4 though.

    They are both on amazon.com, I would hope amazon can ship internationally. Good luck.

    "going faster mastering the art of race driving". this is the skip barber racing school.

    i only had few track days in cars/motorcycles but i can't stress enough how important it is to look far far ahead and look where you what to go. track days are a blast. have fun alin33.

    I just dug Secrets of Solo Driving out of my library to read. The Publisher is Loki Publishing (408) 245-4040 California. It was published in 1989. Great book.

    Re: Question for track junkies

    I like the title "Going Faster". I think it's at Amazon too...
