I'm just going to assume that the jist of it is that the secret to winning is more turbos

I haven't read it yet, but I already like where it is going.

From the intro to the book:


STATEMENT OF NON-LIABILITY

Our society has reached the point where I am advised that,
in order to protect myself from possible lawsuits, I should include
a statement of non-liability in this book. Since I
believe that the human being is wholly responsible for his
own actions, I strongly object to this necessity and to the
morality that has spawned it. However, I would object even
more strongly to being sued-so here it is.

The price of man in motion is the occasional collision.
Motor racing is dangerous. In order to be competitive in this
business it is necessary to operate at the outer edges of the
performance envelope. The closer we come to the edge, the
greater the risk of falling off becomes. This book is about
improving the performance of the racing car and its driver particularly
with respect to the roadholding department. It
deals with the deliberate exploration of the outer limits of
traction. The closer the racing car approaches its potential
in this department, the less forgiving it becomes and the
greater the chances of paying a sudden stop type penalty
become when an error in judgment occurs.

If, while attempting to apply any of the ideas, procedures
or advice contained in this book, you should come unstuck,
you will have done so through your own conscious decision. I
disclaim responsibility for your actions-and for your accident.
