Discover and develop your own track driving skills with individual coaching from Neill Watson. All the very best sports people have a coach to help them. Performance driving is no different. By utilising the services of a third party, drivers wanting to develop new skills and improve their speed, abilities and safety margins are able to develop skills at a faster rate than by trying to learn from a process of trial and error, which can sometimes be an expensive path.
What Is Driver Coaching?
There is a distinct difference between ‘track instruction’ and ‘coaching’. If you’ve experienced instruction that goes “Do this, do that” and “No, not there, brake there…” you were probably able to obey the ‘instruction’ but were left with little understanding of the reasoning behind what you were being asked to do. Neill Watson has several decades of experience in the motorsport and high performance car industry. The same analytical style required to write in depth motoring features proves to be very useful for clients wishing to acquire driving skills.
Whilst ‘instruction’ in it’s basic form has value, particularly when the occasion is a corporate driving event with drivers having less interest in acquiring skills, ‘driver coaching’ is of far greater value to enthusiastic drivers wishing to acquire knowledge. By gaining a thorough understanding of the principles behind the task, the knowledge and the thinking that produced the results can be taken away and used again and again. This is driver coaching.
All drivers are different and everyone should be encouraged to develop their own ‘style’ of driving. Instead of imposing a set of rigid, right or wrong, rules, we work to bring out your inherent preferences in driving and develop them further in conjunction with a thorough understanding of your car and it’s characteristics.
