I am looking forward to racing at Donington this week end. I will again be in David Mason's Ferrari 458 GTC which will suit the circuit well. It looks like the conditions are going to be wet which suits both of us as we enjoy the slip- sliding especially at the notoriously slippery Donington Circuit. We will be on the GP version which is a rare opportunity.
Great weekend of motorsport. We started off with a very productive test day on the Silverstone International circuit on Saturday. Back in the McConnal Mason Gallery Ferrari 458 I’m racing with David Mason in the 2014 Britcar British Endurance Championship. We’re run by FF Corse who did their usual great job. We got a lot of running and worked through our programme with great results.
What is a coach as opposed to an instructor? Many people say they have had coaching or indeed do coaching but is that really the case? Instructing certainly has its place, as a function in itself, but also has a place within coaching. 'Tuition', as a word to describe the whole industry, is largely unregulated in the UK. Whether this is good or not is perhaps another topic.
How much insurance cover should we have? What should we cover? When should we worry about it? My Daytona deal has brought this into full focus after stories such as a driver having a relatively minor shunt at the Speedway and after a few checks up in hospital was presented with a bill for $40,000! And he was not insured.
