At Supercarworld, we don’t only let you drive Supercars in a safe environment – our roster of race instructors give us the ability to offer tailored driver training for those looking to develop their car control skills – whether that be for speed on track or additional safety on the road.
Learn, in a safe, controlled environment, about the real world effects of a car on the edge of control and how you, as a driver, can manage that car to bring it back under control, or utilise it to generate more speed on track.
We work from first principles – develop good habits rather than build on bad. The fundamentals of steering and braking, weight transfer – right through to as advanced as you wish to go.
Driver training is performed in your car – the key is to build confidence in the vehicle you’ll use, so whether it’s a hot hatch, fast saloon, sports car or track car – we can help you get the best from it, safely.

Chris was then offered a British Touring Car test, which he performed extremely well against the top teams and drivers in the BTCC.
Chris then moved to the British GT championship, racing in the Ginetta G55 GT4 class against a large grid of professional drivers, finishing in the top 10 in his class.
Chris continues to instruct and coach at Knockhill racing circuit as well as Supercar world UK.
"What a fantastic day. I learnt so much, how the car feels when it understeers/oversteers and how to deal with that. What's great is that you get to do the drills again and again so you really get a feel for it. You just can't do this anywhere else. The tuition is great with a really good tutor to pupil ratio, you're driving most the day. Best upgrade I've paid for"
