Bragg-Smith School of Advanced Driving

By Rickaz28

In Parhump, Nevada, two miles from Death Valley, CA there USED to be one of the finest tracks to learn how to drive fast-really fast. So fast that if you look down at the speedo or tach, you will surely slide clean off the track onto the desert floor.
In one week, I burned up a set (all 4) Z rated tires.
Oversteer and understeer, apex the turns, braking, and accelerating.
What an experience.
A word to the wise-never, ever do on the street what you learned in class, except for braking in a non-ABS car!
Rupert Bragg-Smith was my instructor and in my life, I should be half as good.
Best to all
Ricky
