    By Ross Bentley on October 22, 2019 11:17 a.m.

    Driver coaches don't know everything, far from it. The idea is not to be a know-it-all but a thoughtful ally. The constant refrain in my head is simply this: What can I say that will most help?

  • Book Review: Legacy Drive By Paul Slavonik (249 views)

    By Peter Nelson on October 18, 2019 2:44 p.m.

    We recommend Legacy Drive to anyone looking for solid, enjoyable fictional motorsports literature. The character and plot development is great, it tugs at the heart strings, and even induces a smile and/or laugh (be careful if you’re self-conscious of laughing out loud while reading in public). The story isn’t always sad: there’s a good amount of comic relief which adds to characters’ likeability. There are lessons to be reminded of, there is inspiration to be found, and just good ol’ entertainment. It should be on the podium of any racing enthusiast’s reading list.
