Finding a quality driver coach for motorsport tuition can be difficult, so we’ve put together a list of Driver 61 recommended instructors. These instructors have been hand-picked and will offer you top class tuition on track. All driver coaches listed here have an excellent racing CV, but more importantly, can explain their knowledge efficiently and will help you become a faster, safer and more consistent driver.
As we’ve spoken about in many Driver’s University tutorials, a good driver coach can substantially help your progression on circuit, assisting you in numerous ways. If circuit driving is relatively new to you, your driver coach will first passenger in your car and verbally guide you around the circuit. This helps beginner drivers feel comfortable and develop quality fundamental driving techniques.
Once your track driving is beyond the beginner level, your race instructor will usually step out of the car – there’s just not enough time to give verbal instruction when you’re close to the ultimate pace. At this point, the use of data acquisition, such as a vBox, will be necessary. Your driver coach will usually set a benchmark lap time at the beginning of the day and then analyse and compare your data to best explain time loses. A race instructor, with the help of data logging, is the best way to find those final few seconds of lap time.
Here’s our handpicked list of recommended driver coaches. Please feel free to send us a mail and ask the instructors a few questions, to ensure they’re the right tutor for you.
