TESTIMONIALS

"Brilliant and informative. We learnt alot and the class definitely helped alot . "SFC" Subaru Fun Crew did the class before our Track Day."

“I absolutely recommend advanced driving lessons from Junaid Hamid at Speed Star Advanced Driver Coaching. A friend of mine also saw tremendous value in it for improving driving style and being more alert and composed etc.both on the track and on the road. The skills learnt on the track are transferable to daily road driving. A simple example I can use is when a family commented on my "upgraded brakes", but my car's brakes were not changed and it was actually just smoother breaking and gear changes which I learnt on the track during my lesson.

Prior to my advanced driving lessons on the track at a Street Car Track Day held at Killarney, my dad and I attended a pre-track-day class. This introductory class covered the basics of how to prepare your car, yourself, to racing lines and vehicle dynamics. The class prepared me for the track day and eased the nerves, as my first track day before any lessons was a frightening experience.

On my second track day, this time with the very capable Junaid sitting shotgun, talked me through the track while I was driving and coached and helped me to improve my driving style/technique and times. By the last session of the day, I eventually shaved off 3 seconds off my best time from previous sessions of the day, by applying these basic driving techniques.

A few days later, Junaid returned my best laps taken from his go-pro footage including lap times and telemetry of each lap. This allowed us to do some analysis for where improvements can be made.

Most importantly, at the end of the day, much fun was had, we were safe, I actually felt an improvement was made, and I would like to return to the track.

“Having worked with Junaid many times I can vouch for his professionalism, work ethic and endless dedication to the motoring industry.

Not only has he over the years gained the experience required to be a great driving coach, but his constant drive to learn new techniques and technologies has made him the go to person in Cape Town when it comes to high performance driver training.
