    About Evolve Driving

    Evolve Driving instructors are seasoned motorsport participants of varying levels including International and Supercars. Most have also completed a High Performance Driver Education certificate - a qualification becoming recognized worldwide as the benchmark for the Driver Training industry.

    Evolve Driving instructors are chosen not just for the race experience but for their ability to analyse, articulate and demonstrate optimum driving techniques.

    Lap times are not used for judging driver progression, the focus on technique and awareness. This helps drivers make real Performance Driving improvements that will benefit them on all circuits.

    Small drive group sizes (maximum 12) and running 20 min sessions is the best format to give everyone minimal on-track traffic allowing them to learn without pressure from faster cars or frustration from slower cars.

    This is so much more than a track day, it's a great investment in your on track performance!
