Ed Pead has been driver coaching since 2004 and coaching young racing drivers from the age of 13 from 2007. Currently a Senior Instructor at Silverstone and a Porsche Driving Consultant at the Porsche Driving Experience Centre (Silverstone) Ed has acquired the necessary skills to coach and mentor his drivers.
There are two parts to the coaching, the physical aspect of driving, then the ability to apply your knowledge to focus your mind to achieve race wins and championships.
Using data logging and video cameras to improve the technique and in some cases overlapping data traces with datum laps set to identify areas of improvement then to refine and reduce errors.
The driving of the track is one aspect, the next is how we prepare for the weekend and organising the testing and qualifying to maximise our performance. Working closely with the iZone Driver Performance Centre (based at Silverstone) we create a working plan for the driver to be able to perform at his/her peak.
Understanding and implementing these techniques so the driver is focussed and relaxed is the next step to a drivers development to achieving consistent results.
Ed Pead: “I really enjoy working with the young racing drivers as they are so receptive and keen to learn and they are able to improve very quickly. Once they are up to speed there are barely tenths of a second between us and that is really great to see.”
