Pressestimmen

"If you are a track-day driver or a regular racer, I guaranteed the $20 or less you pay for his book will be the most cost-effective way to lower your lap time you ever invested." - Keith Martin's Sports Car Market



“Ross Bentley’s Speed Secrets series of coaching books are a favorite around our office: they really help the driver to grasp what it takes to win. From cornering to the business of racing, Ross has covered it all. Ultimate Speed Secrets is a condensed version of all of his previous books and serves as a good refresher for those of us who haven’t read his back catalog in years. Put it on your shelf, or in your gear bag for those long nights before the big race.” – Grassroots Motorsports
“Virtually everyone who races wants to improve their technique and lap times. Ross Bentley is one of the best-known racing instructors who has been able to put to words what he teaches in person, down to choosing lines and adapting to different cars and trucks. This is the latest version of his previous work with completely new text, photos and diagrams. Well worth the read to get your needed speed!” - Vintage Motorsport
“Author Ross Bentley dishes on what every professional track driver knows about driving that you probably don’t. He’s no amateur; Bentley won the United States Road Racing Championship while driving for BMW-backed racing team, and the 2003 24 Hours of Daytona. Even if you’re not venturing onto a track, knowing how to clip an apex should help on freeway ramps.” - The Virginian-Pilot



"This new book presents more racing knowledge in an easy to comprehend, adapt and use than any previous ones over decades of racing. It is not a quick read but an excellent one with much to ponder, reflect on and put into practice. After each track session you'll probably return to it to further hone your skills and fitness both mental and physical. It is complete coaching for the vintage or amateur and it also has many items for the serious aspiring oval or road racer. This means team building, team dynamics, sponsors and sponsorships and much more. It has much to offer the vintage racer no matter the type of car or the intensity of the competition. Buy it, read it, practice the info and you'll be a safer, quicker and more satisfied race car driver." - Vintage Oval Racing

The title made me pretty skeptical. It sounded like those books which promises you to change your life in 10 steps. But the author is awesome. He is not even super experienced in racing. No he is experienced in teaching racing.

I bought that book mainly because I started SimRacing at the PC. And I mentioned that I am very weak because I had literally no driving technique. Before I read the book I thought I knew a lot of finding the right racing line. That was my strenght. But he showed me the real secrets of the perfect racing line. How I can adjust it, how I can find the line, what my priorities should be.

But the book grants you everything you need to know. Pedaltechniques, Physical mechanics etc etc. Even though I am not a native english speaker the language was pretty easy to understand.

One of the best things you can find in this book is, that the author bores you never. You never read sites over sites with dry theory. From time to time he tells you a small story about his life at the track. And sometimes you understand quotes of driver like Mario Andretti.

This is not only a book. It is the racing bible!

3.0 von 5 Sternen If you have the previous iterations of his books, this doesn't add much more. 1. November 2011
Von Charles F. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Flexibler Einband Verifizierter Kauf
I already owned the original Speed Secrets and Speed Secrets 2 and was hoping to get a lot more insight into racing and high performance driving from this book titled "Ultimate Speed Secrets". Unfortunately, a lot of what Ross Bentley says in this new book is a copy and paste of the information in his old books. If you don't have any of his books, then I would recommend getting this one and foregoing all of the other books. If you already have the original Speed Secrets and Speed Secrets 2, then don't bother buying this one as it doesn't add much more.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Maybe the Best Driving Book Ever 11. Dezember 2012
Von Hib Halverson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Flexibler Einband
My performance driving "skills" are primarily self-taught. While, at times, I have received some professional instruction from a few racers I know, for the most part, I've relied on books and practice on various race tracks and on twisty public highways, as my "instruction". I know I'd probably benefit from a real performance driving school, such as Spring Mountain Motorsports' "Ron Fellows Performance Driving School", but with today's stagnated economy, I just don't have the budget. So...I read books.

I've read many a performance driving title over the years starting with Alan Johnson's seminal Driving in Competition back with I was just a kid. Every so often since then, I'll run across one that looks good and I'll read it as a sort of "refresher course". Of course, I've also run across a few driving books which weren't worth their cover prices. Earlier this year, I saw Ultimate Speed Secrets and ordered a copy.

Wow. Great book!

Rivals Johnson's book as the best driving book I've ever read.

Not only does it have great depth in its discussions of high-performance and race driving skills but it delves into a number of topics that other performance driving books either just gloss over or don't address at all. For example: there are chapters titled "race team dynamics", How the Driver's Mind Works, Brain integration", "Behavioral Traits" and "Decision Making" all legitimate topics of discussion for those planning on making race driving a "serious" hobby or a profession but which are sometimes neglected in other performance driving books.

The book's author, Ross Bentley not only is an accomplished race driving having the 1998 USRRC, the 2003 Rolex 24 at Daytona. He's also run the SCCA Trans-Am and raced Indy cars. Bentley runs a successful consulting business which enhances the performance of individuals, teams and organizations through coaching and other methods. Bentley has worked with not only race car drivers from the amateur ranks up to Indy cars and NASCAR, but all sorts of athletes and teams from lacrosse to racquetball and tennis. In the sporting world, Bentley's coaching specialty is in the mental game and that comes through loud-and-clear in Ultimate Speed Secrets. Not only do you get the usual stuff-corner entry, apexes, corner exits, esses, accelerating onto straights-but you also get a lot of useful counseling on how to prepare yourself, both mentally and physically, for high-performance driving and racing. For instance, I learned how making "lazy-8"s with my hands, doing "cross crawls" with my knees and touching the roof of my mouth with my tongue helps a race driver with "brain integration" and makes him or her better prepared just prior to going on track. Don't laugh. That stuff works and there's a lot more of it in Bentley's book.

For some-the sport compact types who like to drink beer, have 5-in tailpipes and talk hours about how their 700-hp Subarus can roast ZR1s-the book actually may be too long and way too in-depth, but for people serious about improving their performance driving skills, and especially those who want to race cars as a competitive amateur or a professional, Ross Bentley's Ultimate Speed Secrets needs to be at the top of their reading list. In fact, if they haven't already read it, they need to order it, now.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Ross knows how to get to the salient point quickly and effectively 20. November 2011
Von E30m3sm - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Flexibler Einband Verifizierter Kauf
I have read most of Ross's Speed Secrets books and they have helped me more than any modifications to my track car. As a long time track day instructor: skidpad, in-car and classroom Ross's books have helped me be a more effective driver and teacher this latest book brings together the bests tips from the previous works and adds new insights. I have especially found his discussion on the end of breaking point helpful. If you want to speed up your learning digest this book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The Racing bible 1. Dezember 2015
Von MaysEffect - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Flexibler Einband Verifizierter Kauf
As many have stated this book has all the knowledge any racer would possibly need. Nothing in this book is to difficult to understand and is geared towards the beginner looking to go pro. If you truly believe you are relatively knowledgeable in chassis tuning and racing edict then a lot of this will be redundant to what you already know. But i find it useful as i have a few friends that are casual spirited drivers that always ask me questions about driving technique that i can't always break down in the most fundamental way. But every answer that i couldn't explain, i was able to pin point the exact Q and A in this book that would solve our discussions.

The next thing is finding answers to chassis tuning problems one does not fully grasp while making modifications. On my quest to improving my cars i thought i knew what modifications would be best, only to find out what i wanted didn't always translate well to the road, even when the parts i purchased were premium parts. This book helped me figure out why certain changes didn't turn out as i planned and i was able to fix my tuning course accordingly.

Note- It is best suited to look at this as a index guide not a book to read page to page. The explanations for certain topics are not in order and has bits of each subject explained over multiple chapters. If you are looking for an answer, you probably won't find it under one chapter.

Lastly - I no way should you assume simply because you have the knowledge in your brain that you will already drive better. Practice..Practice and practice some more (as with everything in life). You can read about late apex'ing all day long. Not until you actually go out and practice it over a variety of turns will you actually start to grasp what you know.

The essence of two other books in one. Well written, with lots of helpful information; expect to work on the exercises to get the most out of this book.
