I’ve been coaching for 15 years, spending thousands of hours in the passager seat (26,000 miles this year alone) and many more analysing video and data to help drivers of all experiences improve their track driving.
I hope you’ve watched some of our Driver’s University series, where I explain the technical details of driving quickly on track.
Over the years I’ve built a large knowledge of race driving, race craft and engineering that will ensure your coaching sessions are as efficient as possible, allowing you to make big steps forward.
Scott is quite simply the best of the best!
Scott is quite simply the best of the best!… he gives you the fundamntal tools that you need to become a better driver. Even after only day with Scott my whole approach was transformed. Worth every penny.
Should have done 10 years ago
Excellent introduction to track driving with constructive feedback. Andrew tailored the training to my needs in a relaxed manner with plenty of insights. Facilities and programme allow learning to embed relatively quickly. A day well spent
I continue to be impressed with Scott
I continue to be impressed with Scott as a coach. He’s a great guy. A great communicator. A great motivator.
Scott’s teaching approach helps the student build the necessary skills and self-confidence to drive safely on the edge and recognize when the driver can get even more out of the car. Scott constantly questioned me about how i negociated a turn and then forced me to focus on what was happening in the car.
Having two days available meant that we could identify my skills gaps, drill on closing the gaps, and then increase driving precision and speed on each section of the track. I had a lot of seat time as we had the track fully ot ourselves.
Great for drivers at all levels
Great for drivers at all levels. The online tutorials have significantly improved my technical understanding and helped me be quicker on track. The circuit guides are great, and I also bought a pair of Alpinestars boots from the online store which were a great price and arrived quickly! Driver 61 really is a great resource with new content all the time. The admins are always available for advice. Lots of info, all in one place. Highly recommend.
Excellent day, excellent people. Learnt plenty.
The approach of the instructor, Joe, along with the friendliness and the space given on the circuit, is second to none. One of the most useful, fun, interesting days I have had. I now have aspects to work on, with a structured way of achieving them, be it on the road, or on the track. Well worth the money. If I could go again straight away, I would.
It does exactly what it says on the tin…
It does exactly what it says on the tin ! The course is first class learning. The ground covered is exactly what I needed and took me much further in my car control. A great experience.
A day with Scott
A day with Scott at Bruntingthorpe was what was needed for me to move up to the next level of driving. I’ve since had couple of test sessions to put into practice all the tecniques learned on track with him. And went on to lead my first race.
