rally car can be taught, it is not something one is
born to do. I believe we can all improve our
driving by practice and reflection with the help of a
good coach. Anybody that thinks they are the worlds
best will not improve. It is true to say that some
people will reach a higher standard than others but it
is quite feasible for an average driver or even a
complete novice to drive a rally car competitively,
given the right coaching. One of the major pleasures
of instructing is seeing an improvement in your
many, many factors involved in driving cars quickly.
Not everyone needs to understand why a car reacts in a
certain way, for some, knowing why things happen will
help a lot, whilst for others just getting in and
doing it is what matters. A good instructor can adapt
his coaching techniques to the individual.
I can coach
one person or even up to six at a time, the ideal
being 1-3. I have available venues around the UK and a
choice of different cars, rear wheel, front wheel and
4-wheel drive, left & right-hand drive.
mornings instruction would be
- after arriving
at the venue, a brief and informal discussion of your
aims/objectives is followed by a more in-depth
briefing. Then into the car for tuition - student
practice and instructor demonstrations, with
appropriate feedback. I cannot overstress the
importance of building the session around the student
and not necessarily sticking to a fixed format. I feel
this is the major advantage of having personal tuition
and a good instructor makes this happen.
