Need some winter time reading ?
 
Hey guys, this is good Reader's Digest length article on car control. Everyone could use some more car control. Note the part about running in the rain.

Thanks for the link, Jud. Great reading. When I got to the section entitled "How to Practice Car Control," I was reminded of the Yokohama-Subaru Winter Rally Series. I didn't know what "car control" was until I entered those rallies - which you did quite well in IIRC.

Hi Craig,

Glad you enjoyed the read. I recall all the fun and challenging driving of those winter rally series events, they certainly helped me build confidence. Too bad the 'anti stunt driving' legislation put an end to the series.

Strange as it seems to many, I quite enjoy lapping at a racetrack in the rain especially with all the electronics and driver nannies turned off.

Happy New Year Craig.

I love driving in the rain. And I prefer to instruct newcomers to the sport in the rain - you can learn the line anytime but car control ... rain helps lose those bad habits quite quickly.

And there was the time a few years back when my T2 car was on track for being the fastest car of the day at the DDT ... and then the sun came out!
