Race: Caterham Driver Coaching - Darren Burke and David Robinson join the DPR team for 2017
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 a vital part of gaining improvement.
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 our other team drivers out on circuit at the same time to compare and contrast lap times.
Coaching: Caterham Motorsport/DPR Team Coaches
For 2017 our driver coaching package has been restructured to include Darren Burke, a highly experienced professional driver coach and David Robinson who won the 420R 2015 championship after a year-long battle with Aaron Head.
