Video in Race Coaching

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 you ever have customers who:

  • Have trouble putting into practise what you are saying, or even don't belive that what you are advising will make them quicker?
  • Find it increasingly difficult to identify areas for improvement as their abilities increase?
  • You would 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. 

Answer:

Video VBOX Group

The VBOX Motorsport range of in-car camera systems provide video with tightly synced data so that you can quickly pinpoint the areas that need improving. Once discussed, our systems give you the chance to prove through undisputable data that what you advise works. This alongside the ability to easily provide clients with a video memento of their time on track, makes VBOX systems the ultimate driver training tool.

Ben Clucas Kia"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 100mph, is very challenging - and often difficult for the client to fully understand.

Using the Racelogic Video VBOX system has totally revolutionised 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, 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 analyse 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."
