Tom Martin Driver CoachingPosted by WindingRoad about 4 months, 2 weeks ago
Tom Martin is a driver coach specializing in development of emerging amateur racers. He says "typically newer racers, and even many with years of experience, are on a plateau. They want and need specific instruction and practice on critical elements of both pace and race craft, with a focus on the new skills that are easiest to master because racing for them is not a full-time job."
Tom focuses on embedded coaching during race or HPDE weekends, where he can produce relevant reference data and video as well as car set-up assistance.
- Tom is currently the embedded instructor for the 2019 Spec MX-5 Challenge series.
- Winding Road Academy Certified Driver Coach
- AiM Data Analyst
Tom has 15 years of racing experience at both amateur and pro levels.
