  • How to focus when at the track

    While the difference is dramatic it could be a symptom of something like ADHD rather than set up which would see a less dramatic difference.

    The research is flakey and contradictory so what I say shouldn’t be taken as sure-fire fact, but there is some evidence to suggest that certain types of people require a high level of stimulation to function properly, Particularly those diagnosed with ADHD (though obvious diagnosis is not an exact science and definitions change over time).

    So it could be a pure neuro-chemical response to low-motivation during practise sessions, and the added intensity and purposefulness of a race means you are more stimulated and thus function better as your brain reacts in a more conventional way.

    I have exactly the same issue and it’s very hard to cope with because at the surface level you aren’t doing anything different. You are braking turning and accelerating. I would recommend looking up symptoms of conditions like ADHD and see if you share some of them.

  • Slow in practice, fast in race explained?

    How can I be 2 seconds off in practice and then only 3 tenths off on race day?
    I know that the presence of other drivers on race days means that one will push harder, but I am wondering if there is more to it? Where am I finding all my time on the race day?

    Let me know your thoughts.
