ARDS Coaching by John Norrington
An ARDS training session with John could be part of a dedicated ARDS test/training day at Thruxton.
The ARDS test (Association of Racing Drivers Schools) is a requirement for anyone wishing to gain a competition licence to compete as a racing driver in the UK.
There are ARDS member schools across the UK at race circuits. They organise ARDS courses or sessions for training throughout the year. John Norrington is hugely experienced in ARDS instruction and regularly works at the Thurxton circuit in Hampshire. John also travels to most other circuits across the UK.
John’s relaxed and considered approach, as well as his 10 plus teaching and 40 plus racing experience, is 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 the correct driving position, braking technique, gear changing, optimisation of steering, and correct use of engine power. 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 Thruxton. Alternatively, 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 Thruxton.
