Driving tips for the track: Double de clutching

he double de-clutch is best performed using the left pedal! To change gear you depress the clutch, move into neutral, release the clutch match engine speed, depress the clutch and engage the next gear.

So how does this method work and is it better than a single clutch gear change on a modern car fitted with a syncromesh?


What is brake fade and what causes brake fade?

This phenomenon known as brake fade can be quite unexpected and lethal and I would hazard a guess that 1 in 4 cars are likely to experience brake fade to some degree. Brake fade manifests itself by a spongy feel on the pedal and little or no braking force. Do not confuse brake fade with bad brakes or a mechanical fault as it applies to brake systems in relatively good condition.
