Motorsport is a highly addictive and extremely exciting activity, and many competitors invest heavily in improving and refining their machinery in order to gain a competitive edge. However, very few competitors are schooled in the use of psychology to develop the mental strength required to improve their performance, or indeed to be the best of the best. This book, written in digestible, down-to-earth language, aims to provide a 'psychological skills training' package that should, with practice, improve a competitor's mental approach, so helping to improve their success on-track.
Dr Paul Castle, a Chartered Psychologist, has been working as a sport psychologist in the area of motorsport since September 2002 and has helped experienced racers at the highest level of British Superbikes as well as young car racers in Formula BMW. He has been researching, collating and writing material for this book over the past five years.
