Sim Racing Coaching

It's Time to Up your game

Since the day I started racing, I have had a teacher by my side telling me what I should and should not do. It’s been a critical part of my development as a racing driver and a big reason why I was able to make a competitive return to motorsport after a 6-year break.

Now I want to pass on what I have learned over the last 15 years to aspiring racing drivers, competitive sim racers and casual drivers who are looking to gain an edge over their competition.

I want to help you up your game.

By signing up to the Coach Dave Academy you will be coached by our team of sim racers and engineers who are not just professionals in the rig but also experienced sim coaches too.

We coach drivers of all skill levels in Assetto Corsa Competizione and iRacing. 

After just one session, you will be able to unlock a new level of performance as we improve your driving fundamentals, your qualifying speed and your race craft, so you can outsmart your competition.

“The Academy provided me with the skills to analyse my own driving and it paid dividends immediately.”

“Just wanted to say thanks again, could improve my driving a lot and especially much more consistency and of course also one lap pace. Not at your alien times yet, but already Spa a 2.17.4 and Nürburgring a 1.54.4. And most importantly, I can now see how/where I'm losing time, I could easily do 0.5 more everywhere if everything fits, but I can also see how I can gain another second, but practice practice practice.”
“That was fantastic Gregor, thank you. I came in thinking I was ok at racing, but I am happy to accept I have a lot to learn. I will work hard on this!”
“The knowledge I gained after my first Coach Dave session has been priceless.”
“David provided unique insight from his career and gave me an analytical narrative of the 'what and why' of driving technique in digestible fragments. I'd absolutely recommend Coach Dave Academy to anyone looking to both improve their racing.”
“What a great experience! As close as you can get to having a private track day with a pro driver. Dave helped me to understand where I needed improvement, and his communication and methods for teaching are excellent. It is so interesting to get the real-world examples and experiences mixed in.”
“From my very first session with Coach Dave, I've scored my first fastest lap, a win, and a podium finish in my first FIA race.”
“The approach is very 'hands-on' so you learn and discuss as you drive. At the beginning of the lesson I lapped 1:40.1, while he was lapping 1:36.7, after 80 mins of coaching I started lapping 1:38.4, my best ever time. David knew what I was doing helped me gain more time and consistency.”


The one-on-one session is 60 minutes long and comprises of the following format:

  • 3 Warm Up Laps to get the blood flowing and calm any potential nerves.
  • 2 Instructor Laps where you follow me slowly around the track as I discuss the fundamentals of driving and going faster.
  • 2 Spectator Laps where I go into more detail about the specific track we use for training.
  • The remainder of the session you will drive on your own in 5 lap runs. After each run we discuss areas where I believe you can improve.

Coaching Style

Our coaching style is very much focused on the fundamentals of driving. For example we will not tell you to brake at a specific pixel on the screen but instead explain why you should be braking at certain points. The theory of driving is a huge passion of mine and we want to share that with as many people as possible.
