Knowledge of over 40 race circuits includes the Nordschleife, Spa and Le Mans, plus many hill climb, sprint and airfield venues. This vast experience, in every type of car, enables John to understand the unique challenges and the solutions required for the widely varying and ever changing issues that a driver must master to achieve the best result.


John’s service is highly individual, giving bespoke help, advice and support to drivers on and off circuit.  He has worked with a large number of drivers both novice and experienced and of all ages. This service is offered privately and with major trackday organisers, manufacturers and dealers.

“I cannot recommend John Norrington highly enough. I have progressed from complete novice to a race-winning driver within one season and all the credit goes to John. Having had instruction from several driving and track day coaches in the past I can say that John’s decades of race experience and further training as an advanced level coach made a meaningful difference. The technical driving skills that he taught me increased my speed significantly (and this is where most driving coaches start and end) but it was his coaching in regards to the psychology required for my best driving performance, race strategies, risk/reward decisions and how to manage and influence the behaviour of cars around me which helped me to initially drive very quickly on track, and then able to fight through the pack and maintain the lead in races. Although I am an amateur I feel that John could have helped me even if I’d had a lot more experience because he is a thoughtful person who works in partnership with you and ultimately, because it helps that behind the wheel, he is very, very fast!”
