It’s time to go back to the YSAR roots and watch some video of people driving poorly. In the next couple months I’ll be counting down my 10 favorite tips on how to drive badly. Here’s a clip of a driver who has clearly brought his street driving practices to the race track. Does he drive a manual transmission in real life or just pretend to? Is he resting his hand on the gear selector because he doesn’t have a coffee cup handy? It looks silly and more importantly, it’s unsafe. If someone bumps him, he’ll lose control of the wheel and then the car. Keep two hands on the wheel whenever possible. That’s something you can practice in your street car.
What about drifting you say? This blog is about road racing, not drifting.
