Become a better performance driver with Speed Secrets
With the promise of autonomous vehicles in our near future, and current
cars equipped with all sorts of mind-boggling "driver aides," many feel
that the art (and science) of performance driving has been lost - or
will be. But no! For every device designed to take the act of driving
out of our hands, the desire to actively participate in the control of a
car becomes even stronger for driving enthusiasts. One only needs to
look at the number of performance cars available today to see that the
desire to truly drive is still in strong demand.
In Speed Secrets: The Lost Art of Performance Driving, Ross Bentley
explains in plain language how you can become an even better
performance-oriented driver, whether it's to enjoy a twisty mountain
highway, to take that secret back-road route to work, or to participate
in a track day on a racing circuit.
From how best to use your car's controls, to cornering, to dealing with
adverse driving conditions, this book will make you a better performance
driver. Along the way, you'll learn what ABS, traction and stability
control, self-braking systems, and semi-automatic transmissions do and
how best to incorporate them into your driving.
Speed Secrets: The Lost Art of Performance Driving will help you
understand your car well and be an even better, faster driver. Most
importantly, it will fuel your passion for driving!
