Are you an instant reflex driver or a feel sensitive driver?

This week, Jake talks to Derek Daly. Derek has a storied history in professional motorsports to include Formula 1, Indycar and the 24 Hours of LeMans. Since his retirement from driving, Derek has built a life teaching those who have the desire and drive to compete at the highest levels of motorsports.

Jake primarily asks about Derek's book, "Race to Win: The 7 Essential Skills of the Complete Champion". The book is a how-to guide to get into professional motorsports. Jake covers all aspects of "The Champion's Pyramid" and the skills needed to not only become a professional driver, but to perform at the top in all aspects of driving a race car as a business.
