Driver Coaching


With over 20 years of racing under my belt – from racing Karts in the CIK-FIA World Championship to competing in the Indianapolis 500 and winning at the 24 Hours of Le Mans – Martin has valuable experience that he can call upon and share to deliver a competitive edge for any driver. With success stories in British Touring Car Championship and British GT, Martin has a proven track record of using his driving skill, his classical training as well as his empathy and understanding to deliver real results.

 

“Why do I need a driver coach?”

Every professional athlete, from the NFL superstars to the Wimbledon pros, has a coach to ensure they reach their maximum potential. Racing is a tough business to crack, and you need to give yourself the advantage of a professional to help you avoid costly mistakes, shorten your learning curve, and help you make up the extra time on track.

 

Who do I work with?

Martin works with all experience, ability, and age levels. Some of his clients have been complete racing beginners, working on the basic fundamentals, and others are top veterans like Takuma Sato, who he assisted during the 2014 IndyCar season as a scout. Martin’s only prerequisite is that you have a willingness to learn and an openness to new ideas.

Martin and his team can offer a range of services including

  • Driver Coaching
  • Video analysis
  • Engineering support
  • Driver race-weekend support
  • Race Spotting
  • Simulator Sessions
  • Career Development
  • Opportunity Evaluation and GAP analysis
