The most successful drivers realize that spending time focusing on driving skills will get them to the front of the field quicker than spending money on their car. There is much more to driving than just fast lap times – driving is a mental game and by acting and reacting correctly in the car you can avoid incidents, plan ahead for passes, and work towards consistently quick laps.

JORDAN TAYLOR

“Todd Lamb, my co-driver (Rolex GT series), helped me between practice and qualifying to really get the esses right (at VIR), and I think that’s where we made up most of our time to get the pole. Which is the first pole for me and for Racer’s Edge.”

KYLE WEBB

“Thanks so much Todd! The information you came prepared to share with me was invaluable. I have spent thousands of dollars on improving my car, and those improvements have not compared with the improvements that you were able to produce from within me! Your analysis of my data and my driving was spot on – as you left I wondered where my racing would be had I hired you a year earlier. In three days you changed not only how I view racing, but how I view myself as a racer. I have added confidence as well as a new understanding of how to prepare myself mentally for a race. I still have much to work on and were it not for your coaching I would not even know where to start. I now have a list of things to make part of my routine, all of which will make me more consistent and faster! Thanks so much for everything – I look forward to the next time we partner together to enhance my performance!”

KEITH MAY:

“Between my family and job there are huge time constraints so I needed to make the most of the days I spent at the track. Getting a coach was a short term investment that would pay dividends in the long run. Todd Lamb had great credentials behind his racing career and was also an automotive engineer so I knew he would be able to help not only with driving but car setup.

I did a Friday test and tune on my own at Road Atlanta, managing to run a 1:53. Saturday morning was my first coaching session with Todd – we went over some basics of car safety/setup and my goals for the weekend. After my first session we looked over data/video. Todd was able to explain things to me in a very clear/concise way. Prior to each session we set clear obtainable objectives and ways to execute them on the track.We repeated this process both Saturday and Sunday and the time steadily dropped until I ran a 1:48 flat. So with Todd’s coaching I went a full FIVE SECONDS faster than I did on my own! More important than lap time I developed skills that will translate to other tracks and understanding as to why certain techniques are successful and others are not. He also helped me to safely explore the limits of the car and step outside of my comfort zone that had developed with HPDE’s much faster than I would have been able to on my own.

In retrospect I am really glad I made the decision to work with Todd and will continue to do so in the future. If you are debating working with a driving coach I would say go for it as it’s time and money well spent. No matter what your goals or skill level you will improve.
