This is our third lesson for The Simpit Driving School and we are sticking with the basics.  In this lesson we talk about weight transfer and its very important roll in racing.  Weight transfer is a constantly changing thing while driving, and it effects our vehicle and the performance of it at critical moments.

When we move on to more advanced techniques both as a driver and as a crew chief it will be essential to understand what the car is doing at every moment on the track and how weight transfer changes the load put upon each tire.
