Peak Your Confidence and Concentration Using Championship Mental
Strategies Guaranteed To
Immediately Boost Your Racing Performance!

Dear Auto Racer,

How often during your career has a slip in mental focus, a moment of doubt, or poor composure cost you or your team a podium finish? The mental game of racing may be far more powerful than you previously realized. Please let me explain…

Most racers naturally think that the best car on the track wins every race. Right? But I am here to tell you that the fastest car does not always win the race. Why?

Because you can possess physical talent, get more seat time than anyone else, and have the best car on the track, but these do not guarantee success in racing. A driver or race team is only as good as the weakest link…

A lack of confidence, indecision, or making too many mental mistakes can negate the fact that you have the fastest car on the track. Your MIND controls the body. What the mind thinks (or believes to be true) is replicated by your body.

Leading auto racing stars also believe that the mental game of racing is THE key to success…

“Racing is a delicate balance of man, machine and attitude.”*
~Chip Ganassi

“Racing is 95 percent a mental game, and that’s going to be the hardest thing – to be confident enough to be calm and patient and not panic in any situation out there on track.”*
~Carl Edwards

“Racing, regardless of what people say, is a mental sport. If you believe you can win, if you’re in a car that can win, you more than likely will. If you have a negative attitude, typically you won’t get very good results.”*
~Jamie McMurray, NASCAR

One problem is that most racers wait until they are deep into a slump or something needs to be “fixed” – and they have tried everything else before they commit to looking inside at their mental game. But, by then the mental scars are well formed.

No race car driver is perfect or should expect to be perfect. I am sure, at one time, you lost your confidence or focus momentarily and it cost you a win or podium finish.

The Most Common Mental Game Spin outs

The first step to an improved mental toughness is to understand what mental game challenges cause you to spin out mentally. Let’s do a quick test:

  • Do you try to be too perfect with your racing and then over-drive your car?
  • Do you set such high expectations and thus never feel like you perform up to your own expectations-making you feel unfulfilled?
  • Do you ride the confidence roller-coaster and your confidence goes up and down quickly based on your performance on the previous lap?
  • Does your own internal mental chatter cause you to become distracted during races?
  • Is it harder for you to focus on the starting grid when your own pre-race jitters distract you? Does you heart pound out of your chest? Is you breathing faster?
  • Do you perform like a star in practice or qualifying, but in races freeze up or become paralyzed by excess tension?

Having helped my students overcome these mental game obstacles, you can learn the same powerful mental strategies I teach them.

But before I offer my solution, I want to make sure you know that I have the credentials to back me up!

What’s My Background?

As a dedicated mental game coach, and racing psychology expert, I have studied, researched, and worked with 1000s of athletes for nearly two decades. Over the course of my twenty-some years working I’ve accrued an impressive list of accomplishments and credentials such as:

  • Working with some of the top athletes in the world including Motocross Champions, NASCAR winners, and CHAMP Car Drivers on techniques to improve confidence, focus, and composure for racing.
  • Interviewing many top athletes in the world including Dan Wheldon, Ernie Els, Mario Andretti, and Jeff Emig to uncover the strategies, techniques and skills that keep these professional athletes at the pinnacle of performance.
  • Authoring and producing an extensive library of sports psychology books, videos, audio programs and training seminars (Visit the proshop or seminar page for details).
  • Other mental coaches brand me as a “master mental game coach” because I teach other coaches and psychologists my unique mental training system. The MGCP certification program certifies coaches so they can teach their athlete’s mental toughness.
  • Earning a Ph.D. in Sports Psychology from the University of Virginia having published more studies than any other students at the time.

What My Students Say

“Harness the power of confidence!”

“Every serious race car driver needs to work with a mental game expert, such as Dr. Cohn of Peak Performance Sports. Dr. Cohn taught me how to harness the power of confidence, focus, and composure on the track. Even better, I am able to use his mental game strategies for racing to my life!” *
~Burney Lamar, NASCAR Driver

“I won my last race!”

“Dr. Cohn, with your help I won my last race at Hockenheim. Your mental strategies really helped me improve as my results improved dramatically during the year. I received a 3rd, 2nd, and then won my final race of the season!”*
~Jonathan Summerton, F3 Euro Series Driver

“Made all the difference!”

“Even when I’m competing at a high level, my confidence is great and I am able to keep it elevated even in very tough situations with Dr. Cohn’s help. My mind is able to focus on the process instead of on the outcome and it has made all the difference in my performance!”*
~Alex Garcia, Atlantic CHAMP Car Driver

~Brian Hoppe, NASCAR Driver

~Matt Boni, Motocross Champion

“You’re our secret weapon!”

“Your work with my son Taylor has really helped him to improve his focus in races. He performs much better under pressure. Your coaching is so good that I don’t want our main competitors to find out about our secret weapon-Dr. Cohn!”*
~Kevin Johnson, Taylor’s Father

“Mental imagery works amazing!”

“I just wanted to let you know that the mental imagery tape you made for me works amazing. Seriously, it is the greatest thing ever. I listened to the tape 5 times over the weekend. It helps me get into the greatest state of mind. So relaxed it is unreal. So, thank you very much for all you help and patients with me.”*
~Lindsay Wadsworth

“Upper hand with mental strategies!”

“A big thanks to you Dr. Cohn! I just can’t get over how much of a wonderful resource you are Patrick for the mental game of motocross! Never in the history of sports have I had such an upper hand with your mental strategies!”*
~Nicky Labrecque
