Karl’s explanation of where the opportunities lie and how to use them gives you both the knowledge you need and the confidence to use it
Michael Downing – Caterham Graduates
He's one of those rare coaches who doesn't want to show you how quick he can drive, but rather how quick you can drive. He's without ego and only has his clients' best interests at heart.

Karl has been coaching me for about a year now and has helped me with a switch from gravel rallying to circuit racing, not as easy as I thought!
With limited track time it is important to get as much as possible out of the day and I've found the best way to do that is to have a experienced instructor in the passenger seat. With a good balance of seriousness and fun I would recommend Karl to anyone looking to go faster and enjoy their racing!
