"I came to Jonathan Goring as an avid track day attendee, but with no racing experience. I started talking with him about what I could do to improve my lap times at Lime Rock and Watkins Glen.I scheduled an appointment and started by having him drive my car. This being a car I was very comfortable in, I was amazed at how he shattered my best time without trying too hard. Now that he had a feel of my car, he delivered with eloquence some personalized advice about how to adjust my driving for the car I was using.After a few laps, he was able to sum up the errors I had developed over the years of tracking my car. Once back in the pits, he explained to me what I was doing and gave me tips to correct these errors. On our next session I kept his advice in mind and he rode shotgun again. In just one session, he was able to bring my lap times down almost 2 seconds at Lime Rock! I thought I knew it all, but now I'm driving faster than ever, and I owe that to Jonathan. Take my word; spend a day with this prodigy and you won't regret it!"
