The driver development program SAFEisFAST has released the latest edition of their helpful videos teaching the fundamentals of racing to drivers both young and old.
This latest video, titled ‘The Fast Way up the Racing Ladder,’ features two of the NTT IndyCar Series’ rising rookies in Patricio O’Ward and Colton Herta. The duo will race for Harding Steinbrenner Racing in 2019 after finishing first and runner-up, respectively, in last year’s Indy Lights championship.
SAFEisFAST has graciously allowed Open-Wheels to share the video and we will begin posting more of the engaging and interesting submissions from the program in the future. Check out the video below!
S.A.F.E. stands for Skilled, Assured, Fit and Empowered – the qualities that every young race driver must acquire and hone if they are to become successful.
SAFE is Fast provides online video tutorials and guidance to promote and teach the skills necessary to be both safe and fast on the track. Featuring expert advice from over 100 champion drivers and industry professionals from around the world, the site covers everything from finding the fast line and fitness training to race car engineering and set-up.
The site was created by the Road Racing Drivers Club, an elite organization made up of many of the world’s greatest race drivers. Members are elected by their peers and include Formula One champions, Indy-500 winners and champion sports car drivers.
