Become a Better Racer

Watch Racing School Lessons Online. Practice Using Your Simulator of Choice.

Want to Win More Races?

No one likes to lose a race. Especially car people.

We are always looking for ways to be the quickest on the track.

Maybe you searched YouTube for racing tips, but wanted something more complete. Or you feel racing school is a little too expensive and rushed.

What if you could learn and practice at your own pace? What if the racing school came to you?

Introducing Keys to Speed

Keys to Speed is an online course that walks you through race car driving theory in only two weeks. And it helps you practice what you learn on your racing simulator of choice.

You won’t just be quicker than others–you’ll know why you are quicker.

This site has helped thousands of drivers since 2016, and I'm happy to announce Keys to Speed v2.0 is now available.

Detailed Racing Techniques Explained Clearly and Simply

Hi, my name is Anthony Curtis, and my automotive content has helped millions of fellow gearheads drive faster. In this course I give you the best material on race car driving theory.

Most racing schools are run by former racers or driving instructors. But I approached Keys to Speed with a background in engineering and racing physics.

As Einstein said, if you understand something deeply, then you can explain it simply.

It took me years of research to get that depth of understanding. And then I put together a new, simpler approach to studying racecraft. It's a series of easy-to-follow videos, quizzes and drills.

I'm not going to ride copilot telling you to, "brake here" or "turn there" on one specific test track.

Instead, you will learn why steering, braking and accelerating need to happen at certain times, and how to make the right choices for any track.

Practice Like the Best

The line between real and sim racing is blurring each day. Pro racers are turning to simulators and sim drivers are turning pro.

In the video above, 2021 F1 World Champion Max Verstappen makes a strong case for the power of sim racing practice.

Max says, "These sim drivers, they're so quick...I like to test myself and improve myself to also learn from them...which also helps me in real life."

And if practicing in a sim is worthwhile for someone with that level of skill, we should all be ready to take advantage too.

Before piloting this Ferrari in real life I already knew the car from simulator practice–the engine personality, shift points, and handling. The experience was much calmer and smoother as a result.

How much faster could you improve with nearly unlimited practice laps? No need to wait until track day or burn through expensive tires and gas.

Sims are the future of racer training.

But the only thing worse than not practicing enough is practicing the wrong techniques, and cementing bad habits.

Keys to Speed will make sure that doesn't happen to you.

Lesson Highlights

You will learn the same racing concepts used by professionals racers, but in a more modern format. The material is split into 9 sections each building on the earlier ones.

The Keys to Speed makes timeless racing advice easier to understand. The videos are short so you can find the time to jump on for a quick lesson. No excuses! You will become faster.

In the example above, we are looking at a simple process you can follow to shrink your braking distance. This is one of 50+ bite-sized lessons that will make sure you get the full picture as quickly as possible.

These lessons are a mix of lectures, animations and racing footage not available anywhere else.

So let's talk about what you will take away from this experience...

Course Goals

1. Feel calmer and more confident when driving:

  • Sharpen your racing reflexes with a few simple changes
  • Know whether or not you are truly improving
  • Avoid common mistakes people make with practicing

2. Know how to get the most from your race car:

  • Steer more smoothly and deliberately
  • Brake harder without losing grip
  • Accelerate sooner out of a turn
  • Avoid bad habits when downshifting

3. Find the better line through any track quickly:

  • Break down and analyze the critical sections of the circuit
  • Understand why the typical apex is rarely the fastest
  • Spot tricky parts of a corner to build a better racing line
  • Know which race tracks will match your skill level

How Does It Work?

Access racing school material from your device and practice on your favorite racing game or simulator.
Access racing school material from your device and practice on your favorite racing game or simulator.

Watch these lessons on your computer, tablet or phone then use your favorite racing simulator (PC or console) to practice what you learn. Use Assetto Corsa, iRacing, rFactor 2, Project Cars, Forza Motorsport or Gran Turismo.

Learn and make mistakes without worrying about embarassment or damage to your car.

The course is delivered over two weeks to keep you motivated. But you can complete each section at your own pace. This allows you to absorb more than the "download" sessions at a typical racing school.

Joining Keys to Speed also gives you access to:

  • The Physics of Racing video lectures to help you understand car control at a deeper level
  • Drills to help you practice and truly hone your skills
  • Quizzes to check your understanding of the material
  • Downloadable cheat sheets and resources you can refer to at any time

Become the Racer You Always Wanted to Be

I remember the frustration of being slower than others and not knowing why. And I have seen how difficult and expensive it is to get a complete picture of race car driving.

It took me years to collect, simplify and test this content. This is your chance to shortcut that process, and become quicker sooner.
