Working Out Your Driving Game Plan
Your challenge as a track driver is to develop a plan to navigate the track as fast as possible. You can do this by trial and error – with seat time and experience. You might become faster than anyone you know this way but you will always be limited. Your speed will be limited, if not by your budget then certainly by your experience and your time.
Motorsports and track driving is complex. There are many factors that affect your speed and your lap times.
You want to know you are doing the best with what you can control.
Without an objective measure you can never know how well you are doing for sure. Lap times comparisons are objective but they are also influenced by many factors outside your control – like car differences and the rain!
Motorsports data offers you a solution here. An ability for you to see more clearly through this fog of complexity. To answer your questions on how to go faster, how to approach a corner, when and where to brake, what gear to choose … and much more.
This mini-course offers you a guided insight into what is possible. A simple, practical worked example to show you how to start doing data analysis for yourself.

About Your Instructor – Samir Abid
Hi 👋, I’m Samir Abid. I’m an engineer from Warwick, UK. Data has transformed my enjoyment on track. Finally, being able to get certain answers to questions on how to drive the car or approach a corner has been great.
There is some complexity to motorsports data. It does not always do what the manufacturers promise. But it can still be useful to you. I hope you enjoy this short course and you’re able to start improving your track driving as a result.
