Andy's unique teaching abilities will ensure participants gain understanding and speed using the facilities at the NCM Motorsports Park in Bowling Green, Kentucky. Additionally, participants can bring their own track-worthy car, or utilize a track-owned Corvette. THE PSYCHOLOGY OF SPEED The Psychology of Speed with championship winning driver Andy Pilgrim is a clinic to help drivers get into the right performance mindset, giving them the tools to get quicker. Topics covered in the half-day program include mental preparation, tire/chassis analysis, managing horsepower, aero vs mechanical grip, to trail brake or not to trail brake, virtual track walk and a Q/A session.
