How to drive Road America: tips from Porsche Factory Driver Patrick Long
We recently visited Patrick Long, Porsche Factory Racing Driver, at Wisconsin's Road America for the track's first Tudor United SportsCar Championship race. Road America is fast, exhilarating, challenging, and four miles long — a combination that makes it a favorite venue for professional and amateur drivers alike. Armed with in-car footage of one of Patrick's practice laps in the #912 Porsche 911 RSR, we sat down with him to find out how to drive a fast, safe lap. Fortunately, he was happy to help us out!

MVP Tracktime - Road Atlanta - Learning "The Line"
Learning the Line at Road Atlanta, with Don Yaun. - Revision 2 This video has a slow motion segment with a focus point (circle) where you should be looking for a full lap. The same lap is also run at speed so you can try to visualize where to look without the aid of the circle. There is a map in this video that shows the line as well but it is hard to see in the video so you may want to download the PDF and print out. It includes this map. Study it while watching the video. It is advised that you pause and read the text if needed. Also watch the video through several times before you get to the track to familiarize you with the turns. Download the PDF at: Instructors may vary the line somewhat and may suggest something a little different. This is intended as a guide to get you familiar with the track. Always do what the instructor in your car tells you to do as they know more about your car and what is going on at the time. I hope you learn from and enjoy this video.
