Years ago, even before I got my driver’s license, I taught myself how to perfect heel & toe downshifting, by watching in car footage of rally legend Walter Rohrl dancing on the pedals of a mighty Audi S1 Quattro Group B car. To this day, pedal cams are mesmerizing. Watching a skilled driver’s fancy footwork on the pedals is somehow magical.
Our friends at Canada’s Best Racing Team have paired up with Piloti shoes, so a foot cam view is a perfect fit.
Crank up the volume and watch Ron Keith takes a lap of Sebring in the CBRT Ford Mustang TA2 machine. There is no heel and toe action here, because these cars use a gearbox with straight cut gears, which allows for a quick lift and then shift strategy. This lets the driver left foot brake, making the brake to power transition instantaneous.
