at Donington Park Circuit
ARDS Coaching by John Norrington
An ARDS training session with John could be part of a dedicated ARDS test/training day at Donington Park.
To compete at a race circuit in the UK you must first take an ARDS (Association of Racing Drivers Schools) test to achieve the competition licence required by the Motor Sports Association.
ARDS member schools are situated at race circuits across the UK. The schools organise ARDS courses or sessions for training at the circuits. John Norrington is a hugely experienced ARDS instructor and regularly works at the Donington Park Circuit in Derby. John also travels to most other circuits across the UK.
John has a relaxed and considered approach, this with his 40 plus racing and 10 plus years teaching experience, makes for the perfect environment to help aspiring drivers through the ARDS test. John will provide pre-assessment and training in preparation for the ARDS test. This includes braking technique, correct use of engine power, correct driving position, gear changing, and optimisation of steering. Racing lines will be explained and you will be coached in circuit safety and awareness. Race procedure will be explained including lights and flag signals, their importance and meaning.
An ARDS training session with John could be part of a dedicated ARDS test/training day at Donington Park track or training can be given privately on another occasion in preparation for an ARDS test.
Please contact John Norrington for more information and to make arrangements to meet at Donington.
