Topic: In car video from Saturday morning at NJMP

https://youtu.be/LNdJBR336aM

Some video from inside the slowest car in the top 10 on Saturday from about 2h45m into the start. 

Yes I noticed that I have developed a slight shuffle steering habit.

Thanks for the video, looks like some clean, fun driving!

This is a good primer on hand position

You should really be keeping your hands at 9 and 3

And learning heel-toe is a great skill to learn on track.

After racing cars for 15 years I have never had that problem until now (seriously watch any one of my other videos I'm always at 9 and 3 perfectly).  I attribute it to this car having a smaller wheel and much tighter steering, and I also had major shoulder surgery last year.  Trust me, next race I won't be doing that again.

As a fellow shoulder injury guy I sympathize. I'm doing the 1-2 shuffle with the steering wheel. It works well with the Alfas power steering - not so well with my other cars manual steering. It didn't slow me down at all but I'm trying not to make it a habit.
