Professional driver coach
“Data doesn’t lie, and sometimes as a driver you have to accept that something is being done wrong and act to fix it in order to make strides forward. This is the perfect tool to highlight areas of improvement.
“If you adopt the position of fooling yourself into thinking everything is right, then you’ll never improve. This system makes you face reality as it is so accurate. Sure, sometimes it can be a bit bruising to the ego having a machine point out your flaws, but ultimately it gives you the facts to learn from.
“Some drivers get by on just a camera, but the real value is in the data and the numbers that go with it. Sure you can see when you’re hitting an apex with a basic camera, but what you can’t see is what impact that is having further around the lap. You need the data for that and being able to refer to both the video and the graph and sector times gives you such great reference.
“The data also allows a coach to back-up what they tell a driver. We can physically replay and point out the effect a different line or a metre difference braking has around not just one corner but around a sequence of turns or even a lap. The art of placing a car is key, and having the visuals and data you can get a trace of where the car is going point-to-point.
“Having the dual cameras is great for me as a coach as I can see what the driver is doing, and also how they are acting. I can see if they’re stressed and uptight or if they’re relaxed, or I can see what they are doing with the steering wheel or the pedals at any given moment, which makes it so much easier to understand how a driver approaches things and the processes they go through inside the car.”
