About Ross Bentley

       Born in Vancouver, British Columbia, Bentley grew up in a racing household (father was a race mechanic, brother a mechanic and driver). He became one of only seven Canadian drivers to race in the CART Indy Car series in the 1990s; he continued his professional career in endurance racing. Bentley won the 1998 GT3 United States Road Racing Championship and the 2003 SRPII Class Rolex 24 Hours of Daytona.

       Bentley currently owns a consulting business, Bentley Performance Systems, which focuses on improving the performance of individuals, teams and organizations through coaching, workshops and the development of custom-designed programs. Bentley’s perspective for business performance is based on his background as a high performance athlete and the founder of four successful companies.

       In the sporting world, Bentley’s coaching specialty is in the mental game. In addition to coaching race car drivers from the amateur ranks up to Indy cars and NASCAR, he’s worked with athletes and teams from lacrosse to racquetball, and motorcycle racing to tennis.

       Bentley founded Speed Secrets Driver Development Services in 2002, whose coaches work with race car drivers and motorcycle riders worldwide. In 2004, he co-founded The Driver Training Group in Redmond WA, focusing on training for new drivers through its SWERVE Driver Training.
