Drive to Win is not a driving instruction book. He said so in the beginning that he wanted to give advice to professional racers and those who want to become pros on how to conduct themselves, now to keep sponsors happy, how to get new sponsors, soliciting yourself, etc. He listed several resources for driving instruction like Ayrton Senna's book, Paul Frere, Twist of the Wrist (motorcycles), etc. I cannot remember any more off the top of my head now, sorry.


James, are you sure youve read the entire
book not just the intro ? ;)
Its very driver oriented and IMO, among
the top 10 racing books out there. I like
Caroll Smith's attitude. You know, he also
lies about that he wont get into lines .... :)

Perhaps you misunderstood my remark...
I didnt want to get into L/F, but
also do not agree with Lee's assessment
of L/F, therefore I thought it easier
to simply refer him to a book, for starters.
I didnt want to name Going Faster, because
thats a blow by blow description of what
most people know anyway. I couldve also
referred to a few a good German books,
but there might be a slight language barrier :)
Keith Codes stuff is good too, especially the
visual related.

Take care, and thanks
