Driving tips from Kris Meeke

Some people say that being able to drive fast is a God-given talent, while others say that you can learn it. I'm not quite sure which is true, but I suspect the best drivers benefit from a bit of both.

So, after a couple of requests, I'm going to share a few rally driving techniques with you, so you can get an idea of the sort of things that are going on inside my Peugeot S2000 rally car.

A lot of people watch me in action and then come back and say that my driving style is aggressive. I'm surprised, because everyone who sits with me in the car says how calm I look!

The answer is that you can make a car do what you want with subtle inputs - there's rarely anything to be gained from being aggressive behind the wheel. But that's not to say you can't drive aggressively but with a light touch!
