Barbizon school of racing

When I was growing up, I remember there were a lot of TV advertisements for the Barbizon School of Modeling. Their tag line was “train to be a model… or just look like one”. I think it’s a brilliant slogan. A quick search of the curriculum shows what you might expect: how to groom and present yourself. But they also have stuff like “eat wheat bread, not white” and “poo every day” and even “always have impeccable undergarments”. Great advice for models and racers alike. I imagine if they had a school of racing, it would include how to hold the steering wheel: place your hands at 9 and 3, and leave them there except to shift. Want to squash your on-camera audition? Pick your nose. Want to do the racing equivalent? Here are some ideas (watch the hands).
