Don't Heel and Toe Like This Girl...

Learn the proper way to heel and toe.

The name of the technique is somewhat misleading as the heel does not really need to be involved as much as most people think. This is how Senna does it - note that he just rolls his foot to the right slightly diagonally as opposed to other drivers who don't move their toes at all and use the heel for the entire motion toward the gas pedal instead.

Here are more detailed instructions on how to do it right and keep in mind that you can also make better use of your right knee to help with your foot motion to the right. In my car, I usually move my right knee to the right until it almost touches the center console to make it easier for my foot to roll over toward the gas pedal.

Learn to do it right so you'd be ready to teach the girl from the picture if, you know, the opportunity presents itself...
