Jim Kearney operates KDD, Kearney Driver Development. He is a driving coach who’s mission is to help drivers become faster, more consistent, and competitive. He spent 32 years racing in Formula Vee, Formula ford, F2000 and SSC. He is a four-time SCCA Northeast Division FVee Champion with numerous top ten finishes. He’s a published writer with his words appearing in Sports Car magazine and Speed Secrets Weekly to name a few. Jim’s Napkin Manifesto, “Little Things Do Add Up.” Is a testament to Jim’s philosophy about driving fast and tuning the helmet, not engineering the race car. As drivers gain confidence, performance rises and happy drivers go faster.
Jim decided to go racing and purchased a Formula Vee kit and spent 16 weekends building the car. A challenging task considering his lack of mechanical skills and experience.
Jim’s Napkin Manifesto is his Ah-Ha moment and has become a cornerstone to his coaching practice. This manifesto is based on the concept that little things do add up.
