Seating position is critical, whether you’re racing, enjoying your car on a circuit, or driving on public roads. During the season I teach seating position to countless students at performance driving and racing schools, and Porsche’s recently produced a video on the subject with Patrick Long, the only American Porsche works racer.

Pat goes through the proper fundamentals in this video and consider this the gold standard on how to sit behind the wheel. Whether you’re new to driving or have decades of experience, watch this piece because the material is top notch. It’s also part of a video series on the new 911 R, so you might want to subscribe if you’re a Porsche nerd like all of us are at VVUZZ. Be sure to leave any questions below.
