Improve your execution and car control
Become the boss of performing under pressure
BeST 2 hours I've spent on learning what and how I can improve my autocross performance! I knew I had a lot to learn, and this course covered A LOT of what I already KNEW I needed to work on. This course discussed and provided me with actionable steps to improve those things I KNEW needed work. However, this course discussed topics at a depth I didn't even know I didn't know (definition of ignorance I think!). Then, to end the course with an HONEST offer to reach out to Vivek Goel personally with questions, (which I've already done and have received positive and encouraging responses each time) is amazing! A National-level Course Designer and a National-Level Driver Champion who offers to help others improve their performance in order to enjoy our sport even more...WOW! This course provided exceptional value that I will be able to review over and over as I prioritize and progress on my personal areas needing improvement!
Imagine you have been autocrossing for 6 months or a year. You go to each event full of enthusiasm and have a great time, but are in awe of how much faster the top drivers are. You ride in the car with one of them for a run, but it is just a blur. You have absolutely no idea how you could go that fast.
Or imagine you have been autocrossing for a few years. You made steady progress for a while, but you sense that your progress has stagnated. You tell yourself that you do this mostly for fun, but a part of you is burning to go faster. Some newer drivers who were once slower than you have caught up to you, and you are frustrated that you are not improving anymore.
Or imagine that you compete at a national level. You have the capability to win, but your performances are inconsistent. On some days, you are as fast as anybody! Other days, you struggle with pace or make mistakes. You are tired of feeling like you are so close, but still so far. You look at the drivers who win consistently and resign yourself to thinking “they must be aliens”.
The thing is, we get to choose whether to do something about it or not. For sure, you can just keep doing what you’ve been doing; you can continue showing up, and hope you improve that out of sheer “force of will”. Imagine doing that. Do you see a clear path forward?
Or, imagine if you could gain the know-how to come to every autocross armed with a system for decoding any autocross course, a greater understanding of the driving techniques the best drivers use, a finely tuned mechanism to detect and fix the smallest mistakes, and a rock solid plan to ensure you keep making continuous progress.
Transform your autocross game with the help of the most comprehensive system for understanding all of the nuances of autocross and improving your performance, no matter your current skill level.
In this course, we will:
- Break down the problems
- How to know what the correct racing line is every time
- Know when to minimize distance vs maximize speed
- Improve your car control
- How to get better at performing under pressure
- Get accurate information validated through theory and observable in practice
- Establish a set of rules using which you can optimize any corner
- Learn how to identify and correct mistakes quickly, with minimal loss of time
- Destroy nervousness by taking control of your psychology
- Gain the knowledge to never be confused about what to do on track
- Identify specific skills for YOU to practice through targeted exercises

Frequently Asked Questions
Is this course for novice, intermediate, or advanced drivers?
I have tried hard to make sure there is valuable content for drivers of all skill levels. Though, to be frank, I do NOT think this course is well suited to someone who is brand new to autocross. I think you will get more out of this course if you have a little bit of experience under your belt because you will be able to put some of the ideas into richer context. Maybe you are relatively new to autocross, but you’ve fallen in love with the sport, and you want to discover and dissect all of the secrets behind reading an autocross course, improving your car control skills, and going faster. Maybe you’ve been autocrossing for a few (or many) years and have made decent strides, but are frustrated with feeling like you’ve stagnated, and are ready to supercharge your development and take your understanding of theory and your driving to new heights. Maybe you are already a very accomplished autocrosser trying to make the leap to the upper echelon, and want to know how the “alien” drivers are able to do the things they do, and what national champion autocrossers do differently than everyone else.
How much does the course cost? Is it a one-time cost? Or a recurring subscription?
The course is launching with an introductory price of $58 for lifetime access. Let me clarify what I mean by “introductory price”. This course will continue to evolve over time. I will be adding new sections (on car setup, using data, and more). I will also continuously update the existing materials to use better examples, better diagrams, more intuitive explanations, and such. As the course gets bigger, the price will go up accordingly for new buyers. BUT PEOPLE THAT HAVE ALREADY BOUGHT THE COURSE WILL ALWAYS GET ALL THE NEW INFO AT NO ADDITIONAL COST. In other words, whenever you buy, you are buying lifetime access for a one-time cost to a growing library of material. But the earlier you buy, the cheaper it will be.
What does the course include?
The course includes 2+ hours of classroom style video content, with loads of supplementary material such as PDF downloads, worksheets, links to insightful in-car footage, etc. Across all of that, we will be covering LINE SELECTION (distance vs speed, the secrets of corner entry, how to know which cones to be close to, figuring out the line through an entire course, etc), DRIVING TECHNIQUES (advanced car control, driving in the rain, how the line changes for different types of cars, and more), EXECUTION (recognizing and analyzing your errors, minimizing the effect of mistakes, determining your approach for a 3-run event), and the MENTAL side of performance (dealing with nervousness, performing under pressure, how to learn when riding along with other drivers, analyzing video, and more).
Can I buy this as a gift for someone else?
YES! Go here to buy the course as a gift for someone else.
Is Beyond Seat Time becoming a paid-only/subscription website?
NO! I will still be publishing articles/posts just as always, and will strive for my articles to be more valuable than the material that other places charge for. This course (and any future courses I offer) are the only things that will have a price because of the massive effort that goes into building them.
Is course equally suitable for circuit/track racers?
Great question. While the underlying principles apply to all forms of racing, the material in this course is tailored to be most applicable to autocross. I plan to release a similar course for road/circuit/track racing within the next couple of months. While I would love to take your money right now, I am not interested in that short term gain. I am more interested in being a trusted advisor who provides long term value to you, so I recommend waiting for now.
Will there be a contingency program?
Possibly. I am working on the details of that.
