The Top Split – Episode #002 – Philippe Leybaert

In the second episode of The Top Split I take a look at the iRacing season that was for 2016 Season 4.  I took a look at the upcoming Australasian Superskips and Australian Formula 1 Championships.  Two new Hosted Leagues offering great racing opportunities for primarily ANZ club members, but, open to all looking for some great on track action.

In the main part of the episode I had the fantastic opportunity to spend some time talking to Philippe Leybaert, who is not only the community coordinator for the Skip Barber Official Series on the iRacing site and organiser of the Skip Barber 2K Cup, but, also a top flight driver himself.  It was great to speak with Philippe about some of the great work that he puts into the community as well as learn a little more about him.

One of the things that Philippe and I spoke about was increasing your awareness on track when looking to improve your driving and results.  I mentioned a series of videos called ‘Surviving Rookies’.  It’s a three part series by Scott Hanley.  Somewhat dated in terms of the cars on screen, you can tell they are from a few years ago at least.  But, certainly the content covered is still relevant today and well worth your time invested in taking a look.  I’ve linked the three videos below.

Thanks for tuning in.  I hope you enjoy the show and I’ll see you in the new year for more Top Split action!
