“There's very little to beat the thrill of driving on a race track. The freedom to drive fast. The challenge of learning the smoothest lines. The satisfaction that comes from getting the best from yourself and your car. Few things are more absorbing or addictive. However, if you're new to it, track driving can also be daunting and intimidating. Scary, even. At least if you attempt to drive too fast too soon, or take to the track in a poorly prepared car. There is much to learn. Fortunately Colin Hoad is here to help. Or rather his book is. With four decades of wisdom distilled into its pages, this comprehensive Track Day Guide contains everything the enthusiastic newcomer needs to get the absolute maximum from their track day adventures. The only thing it won't prepare you for are the number of friends you'll make, the laughs you'll have and the unforgettable memories you'll bank along the way. So, enjoy the book, and enjoy your track days. Something tells me you're going to have a blast.”
“Colin’s wealth of experience has been captured on paper here for the first time, and is a must read for any track day goer seeking to get the most for their hard won money and time. We are privileged to be able to share this book with our beneficiaries and are hugely grateful to CAT Driver Training for their unwavering support.”
“This is an in-depth and comprehensive guide to going on track and getting the best out of yourself, your car and your investment. All this without over complication and incomprehensible jargon. Don't start without it! After 32 years of racing and track days I still picked up useful tips and ideas so even if you have some experience there is always something to learn. And I love that the profit from book sales goes to such worthy causes as Mission Motorsport.”
