Fitness is not something that drivers should only work on away from the track – stretching prior to getting in the car can improve your performance, and reduce injuries if you’re in a crash.

The Speed Secret this week is about making your car show its weakness, so you know what to do to improve its handling. Ross also writes in response to the question, “Can you tell just from looking at someone whether they have the physical abilities to be a good race driver.”
