Kaizen & Speed Secrets partnering to provide the best ongoing Driver Development Programs
"My passion is helping drivers perform better. I’ve raced for almost 40 years, and coached drivers at all levels all over the world for 30. And I’ve always been driven by wanting to be better – and my drivers to improve. So, teaming up with Peter and his team at Kaizen is the perfect situation. Our philosophies match, Kaizen’s cars and facility are what I’ve always wanted, and there’s no place like VIR – as a track to learn on, as well as it being a beautiful facility. I’m excited to be helping drivers like you through Kaizen Autosport."

"I'd have to say that I am very impressed with the quality, attention to detail, and professionalism of the course. The instructors were passionate about teaching your properly. Nothing they did was in half measure. I found the experience more than what I thought it was going to be. The outfit KNOWS what they are doing and they want to ensure you get an excellent education with a great deal of track time." Facebook Review
