Get faster on track with Driver61’s unique track driver training programmes

The quickest way to the podium


The concept of the course is simple; remove all the usual distractions of track days or testing, freeing up mental capacity.

Then, identify issues in technique before breaking down the theory and installing proper technique through repetition.


Total confidence

Learn to find the ultimate limit of grip quickly and confidently in any condition. Ace that track day session, qualy or wet race.

10x on the limit

Much more time on the limit than test or track days, means you’re in the zone & learning at an accelerated rate.

Skills that stick

Change core techniques to drive faster, more consistently. Make permanent improvements that transfer to any car.

Intensive training

Cover over a Grand Prix distance during the day. Repetition is the mother of skill — embed muscle memory that’ll help you win races.


Get faster, faster

Highly-effective, one-to-one training with Driver61. Bespoke courses to make you faster with maximum efficiency.


Rapid learning

Fewer distractions, massive track-time and our to-the-point coaching means the most efficient learning possible through our structured framework.

If you are thinking about whether to do this – stop thinking and just do it (actually on second thoughts – don’t. Stay as you are, continue to convince yourself the reason you aren’t top of the pile is all down to your car and I look forward to racing you!)

I got a lot more out of each module than I would have anticipated. It is going to take time to translate all this to my car and the racing environment, but I found it super helpful and would definitely recommend the experience.

I learned to proactively manipulate the dynamics of the car to maximize grip and rotation while at the limit. It was enlightening to be proactive instead of reactive. I can’t think of a driver at any level who would not benefit from this experience and I highly recommend it.

Hopefully this review will help other novices out there.
If you’re reading these reviews, like I did before attending the program, to convince yourself that the cost would be justified – put your mind at rest and get booked on as soon as you can. I cannot recommend this highly enough. I can’t wait to put what I learnt into practice on track!

Hi, I’m Scott Mansell (from the Driver’s University) and I’d like to introduce Driver61 driver development programmes, practical driving courses to make permanent improvements to your circuit driving.

I’ve been lucky enough to spend the last 15 years – and thousands of hours – of my life racing and coaching at circuits around the world.

During this time, I’ve seen many drivers – even the experienced guys – get the fundamental techniques of driving completely wrong.

The unfortunate thing is they never get close to reaching their full potential and waste a lot of time and money along the way.

With this in mind, I’ve designed a range of training programmes that quickly instil perfect technique and creates lasting changes to make you faster, safer and more consistent.

Previously worked with the following brands & with drivers from:

Our methodology


The concept of the course is simple; remove all the usual distractions of track days or testing, freeing up mental capacity. Then, identify issues in technique before breaking down the theory and installing proper technique through repetition.

You’ll shortcut our decades of learning on track as we transfer our knowledge as efficiently as possible.

Coaching during track or test days can often be quite two-dimensional. The focus is commonly on braking a few metres later or turning in at a different point, rather than working on core technique – not to mention all the distractions and lack of track time associated with track and test days.

Our training will furnish you with the bespoke tools to perform these complex judgments yourself, meaning you can “self-coach” and transfer the skills to any car, circuit or condition in the future.

If you’re looking to significantly improve your technique, reduce lap time and make lasting changes as efficiently as possible, this course is for you.

The on-track Pure Pace MasterClass is formatted to work on various layers of technique, using the following, very efficient, structure:

1. Identify an improper technique

2. Uncover why the driver is making that decision

3. Explain and demo the proper process

4. Practice until it becomes a “natural” method

5. Move on to the next technique

We hold the programme on a private test track, so there’s no circuit traffic. This means we have the flexibility to work on technique and run drills that we just wouldn’t be able to do on a track or test day.

The issue with track or test days is that it’s impossible to get into a rhythm, using up valuable mental capacity and making it impossible to change core technique.

Using a private circuit means there are no distractions so you can learn efficiently and make permanent changes.

The day is all about spending our time as efficiently as possible.

There is no classroom padding and we’ll spend almost all of our time in the car working through practical techniques and then ensuring you understand the theory – there are over 4 hours of drive time.

We use Mazda MX-5 road cars during our training programmes and often get asked why. Even though the Mazda isn’t a particularly fast car, it’s perfect for training.

  • It’s set up perfectly for the type of training. The balance is right, plus softer suspension means any issues with technique are highlighted.
  • It’s slower, meaning more mental capacity available for analysing your own inputs and improving technique.
  • It’s slower, more time in the corner and on the limit for longer. More time in that zone means faster learning.
  • We’re going to be doing around 200 miles on track – many other cars won’t take this punishment!
  • I’ve used the MX-5 when coaching every client, therefore I’m very efficient in finding the core of a driver’s issue (rather than learning the car).
  • Communication is easier. Our programmes are all about efficient learning and a quieter road car help this cause.
  • The process that we’ll go through – with regard to self-analysis and execution – means you’ll easily be able to transfer the learning into your track cars.
In terms of improving your core driving technique, our programmes are much more efficient, effective and a whole lot cheaper than attending track or test days. You’ll spend much more quality time learning proper technique to take a huge step forward with your circuit driving.
