Samir Abid, Race Engineer & Founder

Forget Vagueness. Learn What’s Really Going On.

You really want to improve your lap times but it is not always clear how. You work hard to pay for your hobby – racing, track days, sim racing etc – but it can be so frustrating. Yes motorsports is complex but it has been around a long time. Why do you get such ambiguous answers to even simple questions?

“What gear do you think for T1?
Wheres the best place to brake for the hairpin?
What line is fastest through the chicane?
How should you change your setup in the wet?
When’s the best time to change gear?
What should your tyre pressures be for best grip?
How do you know where you can improve your driving?

The list goes on. Simple questions. Vague answers.

Tell Me Why!!?

You want to know why something worked. You are curious to know if a different change be better? What else is important? You might wonder what a professional race engineer might do in your situation? – Surely these problems have been solved already!?

Most resort to the trial & error approach. Understandable as this stuff is complicated. But trial and error is slow. It is expensive and most times leaves you with more questions than you started with.

You Can Lap Faster

Imagine how good it would feel if you really knew how to setup and drive your racecar well? How much more confident would you be knowing that what you were learning was accurate, reliable and predictable?

What would it mean to you if you had the knowledge plus simple tools and techniques guaranteed to help you improve, go faster and have more fun?
