Digging into topics such as trail braking, cornering lines, race track specific advice, data acquisition and video analysis, upshifting and downshifting, handling and car setup, steering techniques, and the skill of using the throttle - all while driving on track - the goal is to not just entertain you, but also help you learn.

Michael Roban and I talk about what it takes to be successful – in anything, including all levels of motorsport… Advice for when first starting in track days and racing, how best to learn to be a better performance/race driver while not taking too big a risk with your car, learning from mistakes, and his advice (as a relative newbie to the sport) on how best to get started.

Michael’s day job is financing motion pictures, a career he started by giving his services away for free (not unlike most pro race drivers). Just over two years ago he discovered track days, and then club racing, and has started racing with the Porsche Owners Club (POC). Michael and I met when I was leading Racer’s Clinic program for the POC at Spring Mountain.

Michael Beck, Adam Nielsen and Robert Vierhout from the Ten-Tenths Podcast join me to talk about autocross, engine swaps, and why people are in this sport. And then… each tells of their Aha! moment when they learned something that made a big impact of them driving faster – something you can use.

The Ten-Tenths Podcast is just over a year old now, and has become popular because of the casual – and often, very funny – discussions that Michael, Adam and Robert have.

James McMahon and Davin Surdivant of Kartpulse join me in a conversation about how to use karting to tune up your car driving skills, and even more… actually going karting as an end in itself. It’s such a great form of motorsport, and James and Davin share their experience in this episode, providing advice on what you can learn from karting that you can apply to driving your car.
