ON-TRACK SUPPORT

Junior Drivers – Richardson Racing’s roots are solidly built through Karting, as such many of our drivers have come through this path. With our Financial Director Lesley Richardson also being the Director of Trent Valley Kart Club, we understand and encourage its importance as a first step on the motorsport ladder. As such we offer on-track training packages, to help drivers learn the techniques vital for their step up into car racing. Taster packages start from £750 per day using Ginetta’s own Blyton Park circuit in Lincolnshire.

Senior Drivers – Not all drivers come through the karting routes, like our race-winning driver Josh Malin who came through the Mazda MX5 category on his route to Ginetta GT5 racing. For drivers aged over 16, we can offer on-track training packages for entry into the Ginetta GT5 championship. Taster packages start from £750 per day at Blyton Park.

Senior Drivers – If you're looking to move into GT4/GT3 competition we offer on-track training packages in our race-winning Porsche Carrera Cup car.

Coaching – Our on-track coaching is provided by our highly experienced and qualified driver coaches, who between them have enjoyed top-level success in single-seater, touring car and GT racing in the UK, Europe and around the world. All our training programmes are supplemented by use of our state-of-the-art simulator, based at our facilities in Corby. It has been meticulously developed to offer a highly realistic representation of both our single-seater and GT cars, allowing drivers to learn new tracks and basic skills.

SIMULATOR

Simulator – Richardson Racing are proud to be one of only a few UK racing teams to house their own dedicated simulator for their drivers. This allows Richardson racing drivers to gain that crucial edge over their competition, making them stronger on track.

 

Motorsport is different from other sports, where practicing is restricted based on costs and circuit availability. With ever-decreasing practice time available at race meetings, if a driver can turn up to a track with previous experience gained through the simulator then they will have an instant advantage.

A simulator will never replace real life testing, however it will allow drivers to learn vital techniques in a controlled environment with a coach watching their every input. This will make driving second nature and allow drivers to focus on the smaller elements to success at the track.
