Why Speed Secrets?
Speed Secrets was created by Ross Bentley, one of the world’s most sought-after and successful race driver coaches who has been in the driver development business since the 1980s. Alongside, and beside his own racing career, Ross has coached Indy 500 and Le Mans winners, IMSA Champions, NASCAR race winners, rally drivers, motorcycle racers, drifters, and thousands of amateur racers. His Speed Secrets series of books are the most popular and used of all time, with nearly 200,000 books sold.
Additionally, Ross has been using simulators to coach drivers of every level and type for more than a decade. He understands how to bring out the best performance in drivers in the simulated and real track worlds.
Most importantly, Ross has coached sim racers – in person, remotely, and through his training content – leading to race, league and championship victories. His approach to coaching is an all-encompassing one, incorporating video, online, written, data, and in-person to address both the physical and mental aspects of racing.
A key to the Speed Secrets approach to driver development is developing a full understanding of the Why behind what a driver should do. It’s easy to plug in a car setup provided by someone else, or to simply follow what someone else does with their driving – but it’s a short-term approach. Instead, Ross will help you understand why a setup works and how you can tune it to suit your driving style; he’ll ensure you understand why you do what you should do with your driving technique. It’ll make long-term improvements to your driving.
Take your driving to the next level with the coach who has been doing that for decades with champions in practically every level and type of motorsport.
Once you join the Speed Secrets Sim Racer Academy, you’re a member of the team, where it’s in Ross’ best interests to do whatever it takes to make you an even better sim racer.
