“A fascinating read. It will provide you with an understanding of the driver’s mind at a deeper level than ever before.”
– Ross Bentley, race driver, coach, author
In The Science of the Racer’s Brain we want to tell you what your brain is doing when you are going very, very fast.
We take what is known about the psychology and neuroscience of expertise and ask: how can we use this knowledge to better understand the skills and abilities of the racing driver?
This book is written by a cognitive scientist and a race driver performance analyst, fully scientifically referenced and illustrated with 32 figures… but it is no dry textbook! It is based on the authors’ passion for the art and science of motorsport, and blends the story of motor racing with cutting-edge science.
We bring you, for the first time, the untold stories of the racer’s brain.
