In almost all of the categories mentioned above, our drivers have won races and in many cases have event gone on to win the championship.
Using a track day at a race or airfield circuit for coaching purposes, Purple Dot would set up a programme tailored around improving your specific driving skills.
After a few test laps in the hands of the instructor, the vehicle would then be handed over to the driver with the Purple Dot instructor taking on the role of advisor throughout the day; encouraging and providing constructive feedback during the sessions.
From time to time the instructor would provide demonstration laps to allow the driver to observe how to best achieve the optimum lap time. This enables the driver to compare lap times, crucially helping them to understand the key points of how to re-create the ‘perfect’ lap.
