Whether you are an experienced driver looking for those few extra 10ths or a novice driver looking for an introduction to the sport, we can advise and mentor to achieve your goals.
Our experience offers drivers the ingredients to reach the pinnacle. We work with you to improve your race craft and overall ability. Many novice drivers entering the world of Motorsport can find the experience daunting, from passing their ARDS tests, purchasing race clothing to choosing which championship to compete in.
Team7Racing can advise and support from the very start, depending on your desires and budget.
I remember entering this new world myself in the early days and just how frustrating it was not knowing how to move forward with lack of budgets, information or contacts.
I'm fortunate to have built long lasting relationships over the years with people who care and support me. With the right attitude and direction you can be competitive.
All you need is the will to win.
With the support of ARDS and MSV we have the permission to run 'Novice Driver Training Courses' or ARDS courses whereby drivers can obtain their first race licence.
In addition to this we can sponsor licenced ARDS instructors to our school. All courses take place on our existing events at Donington Park and are aimed to support new racing drivers.
We offer professional driving instruction with Jay, our grade S ARDS Instructor. You can do the driver training in your own car or in a car provided by Team7Racing, such as a Fun Cup twin seater with paddle shift sequential or a Caterham.
Our local track is Donington Park, however Jay is available to attend any circuit required in the UK.
Ideal for smaller groups or corporate rewards, BookaTrack Caterham's popular Drift Champion event offers a full day introduction to drifting. Ideally suited to novice drivers, clients looking for an introduction to Caterhams or those looking to improve their drifting skills. Events take place on either the Tarmac Lake or Heritage Loop close at Donington Park.
