The team at Racers360 works to improve the driving experience using drivers’ own on-board videos to coach. You’ve seen sports commentators use replays and on-screen drawing tools to talk through plays, right? Same idea, different application! This is especially helpful when you can send in a lap video from day 1 and get their coaching video back in time to review for your sessions on day 2. That’s why we are thrilled to partner with Racers360 for the Tire Rack SCCA Time Trials National Tour presented by Hagerty and bring nearly instant and in-depth coaching to our participants.

The idea is simple- drivers send in their lap video, a Racers360 coach reviews it, and makes a response video with overlaid footage of them talking you through each part of your lap and where you can improve your approach to shave off valuable seconds. Each coaching video is about 20 minutes and is yours to keep so you can watch it over and over again to get that lap perfect. And these aren’t amateur coaches we’re talking about. These are seasoned professionals who have been there, done that, AND got the trophies! Names like Memo Gidley, Mike Skeen, Peter Krause, and Pippa Mann, just to give you an idea.  Curious how it all comes together? Check out an example of their coaching videos HERE.

Interested in getting some coaching from the Racers360 team? You can purchase sessions when you register for TTNT events.  They have offers and packages tailored for the TTNT crowd:

One Lap Analysis (same day turn around time): $149 - Simply send in video from any device and a coach will breakdown your driving corner by corner with an in-depth coaching session.  We turn your roughly 2 minute lap video into a 15 minute coaching session where coaches focus on driving techniques specific to the experience level you have, the car you drive and the track you are driving on.  Must be purchased a minimum of 5 days ahead of your on track session. 

Data Analysis (same day turn around time) - $199 - Send in data of one session from any data logger system and a coach will review your data and film a data analysis coaching session giving you specific ways you can improve.  Must be purchased a minimum of 5 days ahead of your on track session. 

Personal Coaching Package - $269 - This package includes 2 one lap analysis with same day analysis videos with a 10% discount.  You are guaranteed to have the same coach with both videos! Must be purchased a minimum of 5 days ahead of your on track session. 

Check out all the options and book your session before your event!
