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 simulator-based training exercise focused around 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.
Mr. Brouillard'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 also 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.
Mr. Brouillard is available for lectures and group instruction. A typical program for track clubs or instructor groups includes the following.
