Caterham Academy: Driver Coaching

The tightly regulated approach to one-make racing means that championship winning results require both driver and car to be operating at 100%. Driver coaching combined with data acquisition is an important part of gaining improvement. Recommended Caterham driver coaches are listed below.

In addition to technical support, DPR provides driver coaching as an integrated part of the at-circuit support package which includes a unique video sharing capability. Being able to view a video record is a great aid to gaining the most from limited on-track test time. DPR supported drivers can benefit further from viewing shared video and data from other supported drivers out on circuit at the same time to compare and contrast lap times.
