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

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
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.”
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.”
