SELF-GUIDED SIMULATOR TRAINING PROGRAM
Most of my coaching revolves around education and devising training exercises. The education portion can run the gamut from helping a driver work out the correct line for a complex sequence to teaching them how their driver inputs affect tire forces.
While education is fantastic as it can sometimes lead to instant improvements, training is where the real progress in someone's core driving abilities comes from. This is because the most important, but often hardest to attain aspect of racing is learning what it feels like to be fast. An educated driver can watch an in-car video of a world record lap and understand the physics of it, but they can't put themselves inside the driver's mind to see what it feels like. That "feeling" is a collection of finely tuned responses to various cues ingrained in muscle memory. This cannot be taught directly, it has to be gained through experience. Through training. So to help a driver develop these proper responses, I will identify an area they need to work on and design a training exercise focused on it.
I've always wanted to create a self-guided training program that can be used by all and now that we've created enough of these exercises we can roll out the most commonly used ones to drivers everywhere.
Setting your baseline (FREE EXERCISE)
Start your training program with a solid foundation. We will select your training ground track and first training cars as well as set a starting lap time on which to build.
Current Target Time: 16.948
Learn the fundamentals of driving at the understeer limit. We'll look at how car control cues and driver inputs go hand in hand to keep your tires at the peak of grip.
Now we will progress to the more difficult challenge of driving at the peak of your rear tires. You will train the new car control cues and driver inputs needed to drive at the limit of oversteer. Special training setups included.
Training Corner Exit
Now improve upon your baseline time by training one of the core skills needed to drive a perfect corner. Learn to spot your mistakes and find your own ideal apex.
Training the Universal Cue
In this unique training exercise we will use a special car to begin our training of the Universal Cue. The driving cue that directly represents the physics of racing and provides the final layer of car control precision.
Current Target Time: 15.670
Adam Brouillard offers remote driver coaching by phone and/or email. A driver will be able to purchase coaching time which can then be used as needed.
Adam's on-site coaching focuses on teaching a driver to self-analyze their performance while working up the track. He will also provide a breakdown of possible improvements to driving ergonomics as well as a training program tailored to the driver.
Mr. Brouillard is available for lectures and group instruction. A typical program for track clubs or instructor groups includes the following.
