Tutor Profile

Ben Clucas’ array of experience in a variety of different race cars gives him a wealth of knowledge to pass onto anyone from the experienced racer to the complete novice. He’s been racing since the age of 9. In that time, Ben has driven a wide range of cars from top line Single Seaters such as Formula Ford, Formula Renault, Formula Toyota, Formula 3, even Formula 1, to V8 Supercars, Mercedes DTM, British Touring cars, Porsche 997 Cup cars, Radicals, CN cars, Historic cars and many different types of GT cars.

“I have a huge amount of experience in race coaching, and have been doing track instruction since 2001. I have been involved in driver coaching in a vast list of varied cars, and have thousands of track miles in Single Seaters, Caterhams, Ginettas, Porsches, Ferraris, McLarens, Aston Martins, Nissan GTRS, Fiestas, Lotus’ and many other types of race and road cars (please click here for a more comprehensive list of cars I have been in).”

“Not only have I got the experience from my successful driving career to draw from, I have done well over 2000 days as a circuit instructor, which is just as important when trying to get the best from my clients when driver coaching. This means I know the best way to get the most out of you, and can adapt my style to help you understand the points and techniques I am trying to get across. I will make you faster, improve your all-round racing and help with setup, proven by the success of my customers having won many races and championships. Please see testimonials, and customer results below.

A number of track instruction options are available: You can simply book me to come and sit alongside you in your race car on a test or track day; alternatively, you can hire me to set data for you and go through the data and video comparing it to you throughout the day. I have a wide-ranging knowledge of most onboard video and data systems. I also work extensively with clients and race teams during race weekends to try and get the best out of drivers, from giving advice on setup and how to approach qualifying, to reviewing the race footage and seeing where things could have been done slightly differently. An intercom and in-car camera will also be available to aid with race instruction during track and test days.”

Ben coached me intensively when I won both the Caterham Roadsport A and R300 Championships. His help was invaluable, not only did he make my driving faster, he also helped me with lots of other aspects of racing, like how to approach qualifying, getting a tow and race craft etc. If you ever need a data lap set, Ben can jump in the car and within a few laps you'll have a very fast lap to compare yourself against. I would recommend him to anyone.

I have used Ben's coaching and it has been excellent. Ben has worked with me on lots of days, making me much faster and pointing things out I would never have noticed myself. His help is invaluable, he has a huge range of knowledge in Caterhams and speeds up the learning process no end. I will certainly be continuing to use him in the future. The Vbox system I have is great for quickly and simply finding where you need to be focusing on to find that extra time and Ben is very knowledgeable on how to use this system to the best of its ability

Ben has helped Harry make the big step up to car racing much easier. He has given us advice on driving, team choice, car setup, everything you could need help with. It's been great to be able to get advice from someone who has been there and done it himself, knows everyone in the paddock, and is still professionally racing
