Race Driving Fundamentals

Learning to drive faster has never been easier

Trail braking, weight transfer, driver vision and the perfect racing line - These are all concepts you’re going to need to master if you want faster and more consistent lap times. Whether you’re an absolute beginner or a seasoned racer, I can guarantee that there will be areas where you can improve your driving and that is where this course can help you.  

HPA's Race Driving Fundamentals course condenses over 20 years of knowledge from both top level professional racing and driver coaching, and provides you with a solid understanding of the theory, skills, and techniques that you need to master in order to go faster. This will ensure you aren’t left making the same mistakes lap after lap and will provide you with an analytical approach to analysing and improving your driving.

In this course you will learn how to utilise weight transfer to optimise grip and handling balance, how to get the absolute most out of the traction available, and how to analyse each corner in order to break it down into its individual phases and optimise your line. Along with key tips from the pros on onboard video, visualisation, data analysis, and more, this course is going to help rapidly accelerate your performance on track.
