Ep29. Tal Ziv On Helping You Drive Faster By Applying The Science Of Human Behaviour

Tal Ziv, a performance psychologist who has worked with some of the best pro drivers and engineers in the business. Tal comes highly recommend to the show by previous guest Jorge Segers [Ep.26/27]. But what is really the contribution of psychology in racing? Where is the link to lap time on the track? The motorsports community has long survived without this kind of expertise so where is the gap now and how can it really help your performance? 

A subject that doesn’t often get talked about, particularly in terms of performance improvement, its a fascinating show and I hope you get a lot from it. So grab a notepad, grab a coffee, sit back and enjoy.
