  • You‘re a good sim racer who has learned through trial and error, but without a foundation knowledge of race driving.
  • You’ve you hit a plateau, and need resources to move past it.
  • You want to improve your chances of winning.
  • You want to win a sim racer scholarship/shootout, and even catch the eye of real-world race teams.
  • You are using a sim to prepare to be consistently faster on real-world tracks.

If so, join the Speed Secrets Sim Racer Academy and let Ross Bentley take your sim driving to the next level.

Introducing the Speed Secrets Sim Racer Academy

  • Proven resources to make you a better sim racer, brought to you by one of the world’s top race driver coaches, Ross Bentley.
  • Training resources delivered in video, illustrated, and written forms, with regular additions and updates.
  • Sim software/platform agnostic. Driving is driving (at least, it should be). While there will always be differences (subtle and some not so subtle) between software and hardware, our driving techniques and practice strategies apply equally to them all. And, they even apply to the non-sim world of real cars and tracks (after all, that’s where they came from).

The Sim Racer Academy will help you:

Join the Team

The Speed Secrets Sim Racer Academy is a community of like-minded drivers. You’ll be able to pick the brains of fellow sim racers, partner up for practice sessions and races, share information and opinions, and ask questions. This is also where Ross Bentley hosts regular “chalktalks” – live, online, Q&A sessions where he and special guests answer your questions.

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.

Not from me! While using someone else’s setup can make you faster, it’s important to understand why. That’s where the Speed Secrets Sim Race Academy comes in. Absolutely, purchase setups from other sources, but when you want to fine-tune it to suit your driving style – and understand how to tune your own setups – the resources the Speed Secrets Sim Race Academy provides will help you do that.

No. The Speed Secrets Sim Race Academy will give you the tools to learn on your own. That’s not to say that a 1-on-1 coach is not valuable – they are.

Absolutely not. The Speed Secrets Sim Race Academy is platform – hardware and software – agnostic. Everything your membership includes applies to every type of driving/racing sim software (iRacing, Assetto Corsa, Cars2, Forsa, Gran Turismo, etc.) and hardware.

We don’t provide specific, on-going advice on sim hardware and/or software. That’s not our area of expertise, and this is an ever-updating situation, whereas driving technique is timeless. We’re experts in driving. However, our Resources section does provide an extensive list of reviews of steering wheels, rims, pedals, rigs, motion platforms, etc. And we will host hardware & software experts every now and then in our Q&A Chalktalks.

You can cancel your membership at any time. Your purchased membership level will run to the end of its scheduled period, and your membership will not be renewed.

Your membership is unique to you. You will have a member login username and password that you should protect, and not share with others. Of course, all of the content on the member site is password protected, and is copyrighted so only you have access to it.

Whether you’re just beginning to sim race, or you’ve been doing it for years; whether you’re barely hanging onto the back end of the race field, or dominating races, you’ll find resources and content for you with a Speed Secrets Sim Race Academy membership. It’s for all sim racers, as well as real life track drivers who use a sim as a training/practice tool.

The moment you join, you have access to all the resources & content in the “library” – but you need to know that it will be updated with new content constantly. So, your membership becomes more valuable as time goes by. The longer you’re a member, the more resources you get.
