Consistency -- How To Become a Better Track Day Driver -- Hooked On Driving
http://www.hookedondriving.com Driving consistent high-skill, high-quality
laps on the race track during a high performance driver education event or
racing is a key to success and dramatically reduces risk. Novice
performance drivers will commonly place "driving faster" as a higher priority over "driving
consistently" with disastrous results. You must use skills of concentration
and discipline—not pushing beyond YOUR personal skill limit—to
successfully drive consistent quality laps; and only then begin to fine
tune other skills such as maximizing use of the tire during corner entry
Hooked On Driving is a Performance Drivers School, hosting events across
the country; all you need is a car, tank of gas and need for speed.

Trackday Tips for Beginners
Information that I hope will help riders new to trackdays. I also forgot to
mention that some trackday organizations allow you to get a taste of what a
trackday is like by letting you ride in your street gear with a control
rider during the lunch break. Take advantage of this if you are unsure if
you want to do a trackday.
Another note: check your brakes before you go. The track will use up brake
pads in a way that the street almost never does.
