Latest methods in motor racing sport psychology are helping a small number of performers get out there and do a better job. Are you one of them and if so are you content that what you are paying for is really helping you? Sun1400 addresses the problems that are most relevant to you and your racing and provides practical techniques in motor sport psychology to help you get to where you want to be.
Making the change to a consistently high performing mindset in racing is a four-step process:
1. You have to understand that the prime motivator for change is you.
2. Look at everything you do in your racing life right now. How does this affect your mood, behaviour and thoughts and especially your motivation, concentration, self-confidence and control of nerves?
3. Think hard about where youíre aiming to be and why it is you are in your sport. What is it that gets you out of bed to go and train, practise, test and race?
4. Figure out how much what you are already doing is helping you get to where you want to be. Make a definite plan to develop and improve your mental approach, get the right team around you to make it happen and go and do it.
"I was very sceptical about
using sport psychology for my kart drivers but some of them just
didn't have the right mental approach to get the job done.
Mike identified the weaknesses to work on and put a focussed
plan together to move forward. With one driver, the change is so
big it's hard to remember how difficult it used to be!"

What Sun1400 therefore stands for
Sun1400 stands for ĎSunday at 2pmí
and represents the typical local start time and day of a F1
Grand Prix motor race. At such a point in time, when the five
red lights go out, it is the moment that exemplifies the key things you face in your racing: Challenge, excitement, fun, competition, accountability, preparation and professionalism.
When the race is ready to start, are you totally ready to race?
