While some people race for fun, there are others who want to make a living driving a car. I might be able to call myself a factory driver now thanks to Mazda’s SKYACTIV-D prototype program, but I’m still busy with a lot of coaching, too. For racers who want to work their way into a professional series or diversify by becoming a coach, there are a number of ways to get started and a lot of things to keep in mind.
As someone who’s made a living from coaching drivers over the past 25 years, as well as being a strong promoter and advocate for it in a sport that traditionally has not accepted coaches, it’ll come as no surprise that I have an opinion on this topic!
It’s no secret that the Chinese market is a big deal. What you may not know, though, is that it’s the limousine business that’s really booming in the communist country. Look no further than the Jaguar XJ Ultimate or Chrysler 300 Ruyi Design Concept that debuted yesterday, or the Rolls-Royce Ghost Six Senses Concept that debuted today.
