Race Coaching using VBOX

As an instructor, you have a good knowledge of how to get a car around a circuit in the quickest possible time and how to coach others to do the same, but ...

Do your customers have trouble putting into practice what you are saying, or even don't believe that what you are advising will make them quicker?

Do your customers find it increasingly difficult to identify areas for improvement as their abilities increase?

Would you like to show exactly how much quicker your advised line or technique will make them?

To combat this, you need a tool that clearly shows your customers where they are losing time and what they can do to improve their performance on track.

VBOX Motorsport in-car camera systems provide video with tightly synced data so that you can quickly pinpoint the areas that need improving. Our systems give you the chance to prove through undisputable data that what you advise works. It provides an objective back up and helps when dealing with big egos. You can provide clients with a video memento of their time on track.

Don't believe us? Listen to the experts.

What other coaches say...

Ben Clucas - Racing Driver & Coach

Ben has been racing since the age of 9 and has driven a wide range of cars from top line Single Seaters such as Formula Ford to V8 Supercars, Mercedes DTM, British Touring cars, Porsche 997 Cup cars, Historic cars and many different types of GT cars.
Ben has been doing track instruction since 2001 and has done thousands of track miles in many types of race and road cars including Ginettas, Ferraris, Aston Martins & Lotus'.

"I have coached drivers from complete beginners to semi-professionals looking for those last vital few tenths. Trying to convey quite complex information in a very short time frame, at over 100 mph, is very challenging - and often difficult for the client to fully understand.

Using the RACELOGIC Video VBOX system has totally revolutionized race coaching. This system makes driver training an exact science. It allows you to sit with your client in a relaxed environment after the session, quickly and simply pinpointing exactly where the time is being lost.

As a coach, this allows me to concentrate on the areas where the most time is being given away and compliment my clients on the areas in which they are doing well. It is a massively more productive way of learning and enables the customer to make huge strides forward during the day - highly satisfying from my point of view, but more importantly leads to the client having better qualifying and race results."

Rob Barff - Grade-S ARDS Instructor

Rob has extensive experience in both Le Mans Prototypes and all forms of GT race cars, regularly running up with the leaders in races such as the Le Mans 24hrs, Sebring and Daytona. He is an ARDS Grade S instructor.

"With the data interpretation we now get very detailed analysis on a lap by lap basis, whereas in days gone by when driver coaches were just sitting alongside the clients, they'd only get a general overview from the coach.

Now they get that broad perspective plus - over a cup of tea and in very much more a productive state of mind – they can analyze driving patterns; general areas of competence that can be left well alone; and areas of concern.

There are techniques that you can learn by yourself, but it will take years to do so; using the video and data massively shortcuts that process."

"Often there is little time between sessions for meaningful video/ data analysis. I credit the speed to validate and accurately define areas for time gain with VBOX and Circuit Tools software to be a major part of many Poles and Race Wins."

Guy Cosmo

“The quickest and most efficient way for me to get information to my drivers is from using the VBOX HD2 system.”
