Improving driving skills and car setup

With a bit of time in between track events, I've been reading and watching videos on driver improvement, car setup, etc. I've found a few that I thought may be helpful to others. I have no affiliation with these and only posting them as info that I found useful and of good quality. If you have some of your own, please post here.

I've come across these myself. Great posts to share! Sadly there is no replacement for seat time.

Ross Bentley - Ultimate Speed Secrets book is somewhat of a bible in terms of fundamentals.

+1, it's amazing. His track walkthroughs with Peter Krause are great too.

Actually there is, not in a car. I started driving in a shifter kart awhile back. Itís a great way to sharpen your skills. Thereís a good reason F1 drivers drive shifter karts in the off season, at least in the old days.

Absolutely, though I'd consider that an affordable way to get "seat time" and thus one in the same.
