Racing Driver Coaches & Instructors

Finding a quality driver coach for motorsport tuition can be difficult, so here you can find a list of coaches who work to the Driver61 methodology.

These racing instructors have been hand-picked and have worked together with Scott to train drivers as effectively as possible. All of our driver coaches 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 and training programme can quickly help your progression on circuit.

Our driver coaches work differently to most. We want to give you the tools to safely find the limit and manipulate your technique to generate more grip once you’re there. With this in mind, our training programmes and coaches don’t just tell you what to do, rather run you through these process so you can repeat the same in your car on any circuit.

If you have any questions regarding our racing coaches, tuition or driver training programmes, please get in touch.
