Your 4-Week Training to Faster Lap Times

The concept of the Sim Pure Pace MasterClass is simple; we provide you with a step-by-step course on the core fundamentals of racecraft, and then get on the track with a group of students, me (Scott Mansell) and my coaches and to practice and critique your race craft.

You’ll shortcut my 25 years of learning as I transfer my knowledge as efficiently as possible.

I have seen both beginner and advanced drivers lose significant time and consistency due to an incorrect understanding of racing fundamentals. Focusing on learning and drilling these techniques have proven to improve the consistency and ability to find the limit of all my students regardless of their level.

Week 1: Vision

If you don’t have your vision in the right areas on track and moving at the right time, you’ll be off the pace and constantly make mistakes. Our “Vision Week” teaches you how to permanently change where you’re looking, to give you the right information at the right time.

Week 2: Steering

We often see sim racers driving on a self-induced limit – they look fast, but are ultimately off the pace. During “Steering Week”, you’ll learn how to get the most out of your chosen car when driving through a corner, meaning faster cornering and ultimately a quicker lap time.

Week 3: Braking

There is a lot of time to be found on the brakes. If you want to fulfil your driving potential your braking technique needs to be perfect. During “Braking Week” you’ll work on maximising the braking phase and building speed with trail braking.

Week 4: Grip Generation & Limit Manipulation

The final 1% of lap time comes from adapting your technique to get the most from your car at each phase of the corner. We’ve developed a process to refine this and during “Grip Week” you learn exactly how to drive your car on the absolute limit, every lap.

I've spent countless hours, many of it frustrated trying as hard as I could.

I've bought books, got help for everyone I could and even paid for help.

Since I've learned in detail how vision helps time driver inputs [via this course], I've placed 2nd in 6h ELMS Monza & 6h ELMS Sebring, won a solo victory in VLN, and am now competing above my iRating in LMP1.

Preparing for the Indy eSports Series and adapting to iRacing was an eye-opener for me. Because of the diferences with the real world, I was struggling with my consistency and how to find the last %2 in my lap times.

However, in just a week, by helping me with my equipment, games settings like FOV and by running laps with detailed telemetry analysis, I was on pace with the top drivers who had been playing iRacing for years! They were great and fun to work with, and made a huge improvement!.

Before the training my best time was a 59:875. I didn't know what else to do and could not get the time down no matter what! After the training I did around 30 laps and managed to get my timing down to 59:405. Most importantly, I managed to do it very consistently.

My driving style has changed and I believe I will be soon able to lap in the 58's. I feel a lot more confident with my new driving style, more involved, more organic, and much more consistent.

Further Details

I hold the course in iRacing using the MX-5 car. The iRacing simulator’s physics combined with the MX-5 are the perfect platform for understanding weight balance and grip at a speed that leaves mental capacity for interalizing techniques.

The course takes places over 4 weeks that includes instruction delivered via our online learning platform (mobile and web supported) and four on track sessions with me and our coaches. During these sessions, you will be pair with an instructor and 4 other students, all being coached on the techniques taught that week, and your overall pace. I’ll also be stopping by to give my feedback on your pace as well.

On the track days, by leveraging the streaming features of Discord, my instructors and I can both teach you on the track then live view and correct your technique to maximize your time with us.

 

 

 

Our MasterClass takes place over 4 weeks. Each week you will recieve detailed technique training and drills to run on your simulator.

Then, every weekend, you join my instructors and I on the track for training. You’ll be grouped with 4 other students and an instructor who will all be practicing the newly learned techniques and getting up to speed on different tracks.

 

  • Week 1 – Vision Technique and Drills
  • Week 2 – Steering Technique and Drills
  • Week 3 – Braking Technique and Drills
  • Week 4 – Grip Generation and Limit Manipulation

I use a MX-5 car during the MasterClasses and often get asked why. Even though the MX-5 isn’t the fastest 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. 
  • I have often found that faster cars hide core fundamental mistakes that you are making. You’ll be amazed how well a slower car highlights those mistakes and how you will then be able to see those mistakes in faster cars.
  • Because it’s a slower car, there is more time in the corner and on the limit for longer. More time in that zone means faster learning.
  • 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.

For a limited time and number of students, I am offering my Sim Fundamentals MasterCourse for an introductory rate please enquire for more details.

Note that all tracks and the MX-5 are included with the basic iRacing subscription, so all you need is an iRacing subscription to join the training.
