1:1 COACHING SESSIONS
1:1 coaching sessions can be booked by the hour and these focus on anything from skill development to simply learning a new track.
Using bespoke simulation and training technology our coaches employ structured training drills that are designed to create rapid learning as we progressively increase the level of challenge.
Intensive training sessions that focus on consistency, adaptability, qualifying and racing.
We build our own training tracks to isolate individual driving skills i.e., rotation, braking, steering, judgement and vision.
Our training software records every aspect of a driver's performance and the driver's own performance analysis.
We use eye tracking technology to enhance a driver's ability to judge where to brake, turn and apply power.
This ensures that drivers are never standing still in their development.
DRIVER DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMME
iZone's unique Driver Development Programme is a comprehensive academy-based training programme (suitable for amateur and professional alike), that is designed to give our drivers the winning edge in a very competitive driver market.
Our coaching is focused on developing drivers technically, mentally and physically so that they are constantly practicing and refining the skills that are needed for them to achieve their goals.
TRAINING 5 DAYS A WEEK
Our Performance Clinic and Group Training activities operate 8 hours a day, 5 days a week.
TRAINING EITHER AT IZONE OR REMOTELY
Depending on the programme chosen, drivers can train with us in person at iZone or remotely from their own homes (subject to having their own simulator), or a combination of both.
Every driver that joins our training programme also becomes part of our 'Training Community of Drivers' and this entitles them to take part in a wide range of additional group activities that run both remotely and at iZone's state of the art facilities.
We introduce our drivers to 'the iZone Way':
Understanding and adopting the mindfulness and acceptance based approach in everything we do.
We instill our core behaviours and standards to allow you to be and perform at your best.
This enables us to build a high performance culture through our core training principles and values
Joy - Enjoy the experience and the journey.
Mindfulness - Stay in the present & focus on the process.
Professionalism - Show how much you care. Train like you compete.
Learning - The more you engage the more you get out of this program. Take responsibility for your own learning.
Accountability - Do what you say you're going to do and take ownership of your journey and actions.

We have three state-of-the-art simulators, enabling us to offer training in Single Seaters, GT's, Touring Cars and Sports Cars. We develop all of the car models in-house and all of our tracks are laser-scanned and constantly updated.

INTERNATIONAL DRIVER TRAINING
Using our remote coaching technology iZone are currently training drivers around the world to develop their technical, physical and mental skills.
Fitness training at iZone is solely targeted at enhancing on track performance and creating exceptional motorsport athletes. We work towards this through a combination of fitness assessments, individual training programmes and group training sessions.
We have our own in-house performance psychologist and mindfulness trainer and our goal is to create mentally resilient drivers who have the ability to execute complex skills under the extreme pressures of competition.
iZone's professional racing driver training methods used to help drivers achieve success in the real world can also be applied for those competing in Esports or just starting out in Sim Racing.
GROUP TRAINING PROGRAMMES
iZone's group training sessions offer drivers the opportunity to benefit from the same high quality of coaching but set within a group environment.
To have a successful career in motorsport it is essential that drivers master the skills required to communicate with the mtorsport and manage their social media.
