http://www.driver-coaching.com - Onboard footage from a recent training day I did for one of my drivers.

The location is RAF Barkston Heath and the event is run by Javelin Trackdays. I use the slalom course following work on the Drift Course to teach drift, rally and track driving skills.

This particular run was a demonstration run to collect video & data, doing the run in 3rd gear only. Ideally the course should be driven in a combination of 2nd & 3rd gear but 2nd gear can overslow the car as you approach a turn. It's important to carry LOTS of speed into a turn so that when you lift-off and turn in you get the car to drift and effectively do the turn for you without you having to apply too much steering lock.

As it happened this run was the fastest even though I lost quite a bit of time in the hairpins with not having the torque from 2nd gear.

The video is captured on a 4-Cam Video4 setup from Race-Technology, supplied, fitted and operated by www.driver-coaching.com. I use this system extensively in my driver coaching where we are able to compare data & video down to minute detail to help the driver improve at a faster rate.
