Video: One way to get faster laps? Watch how the pros drive.

https://www.youtube.com/embed/ywBKVPIUlJ4

Honda Racing pro race car driver, multi-time SCCA Solo Champ and all-around cool guy Tom O’Gorman took some time at the 2020 Roar Before the Rolex 24 to show us how he learns to go faster by watching cars on track.

From the infield fence at Daytona International Speedway, he shows us how watching the pros can make you a better driver.

So, here's the thing: Tom (hi Tom) looooves making videos with us. Any other topics that you'd like to see him cover?

Great Video! How about one on Sim Racing and how that can make you a better driver on track?

Honestly, Im knew to this guy, it'd be cool just to hear about HIM. How he got started, how he prepares for a race, and even what he does when he's not racing. What perks being a factory driver offer etc

I enjoyed this video, I liked him, seemed relaxed, not pretentious, and really explained the race a lot and very well. Great ambassador of the sport!

This is cool. I'm going to specifically try watching for brake lights tonight at the cart league. The tracks are setup so the corners you can see brake lights are really far away from the spectator area (maybe on purpose) but I'll see what I can do.
