This manual provides practical ideas to help experienced high performance drivers communicate what they know to students.   It is designed to be an aid in bringing back to consciousness some of the skills and techniques that are automatic and unconscious for experienced racers and high performance drivers.   It also suggests a structured approach to instruction particularly useful to new instructors.   Tables and illustrations compare and contrast the performance of novice, intermediate, and advanced students to help the instructor candidate observe and diagnose problems when coaching students.   A glossary of track terms is included to aid instructors to recognize jargon and to help explain terms commonly used at the track.
